    [Disruptor] Static Storm spams its debuff on enemies within its area

    This happens because the linger duration is set to 0. When at 0, the modifier is applied and removed on each server tick.

    This causes several issues:
    1. The modifier is not visible in the status bar because it never gets the time to materialize there
    2. The silence mask never appears above the target, neither does the status bar above the health bar of the unit
    3. The modifier may malfunction for some server ticks, not applying its effects properly. You can observe this very well with Abaddon's Borrowed Time aghs upgrade, which sometimes fails to affect allies within range.


    You really should fix 0s aura behaviors. When set to 0, the aura's modifier should be placed once upon entering, and last until leaving the area or until the aura stops working. It should not use literally 0s econds as a duration.

    Turns out there is a scenario where this affects gameplay. This 0s duration allows you to cast instant-cast spells while inside Static Storm. All you have to do is get stunned, and give your cast order during the stun, and then have Disruptor through his ult on you.
