    This is intended, since you can just target the ground to achieve the same result.

    But you can 'juke' the enemy Prophet into misplacing it if he had to cast it on the ground.

    I'd say do it however it worked in DotA1.

    This kind of seems like a nerf to sprout then, because it loses functionality. Obviously we've always been able to do the target ground thing, but now we can't target them on purpose to dispell the linkens anymore, for example to help an ally set a stun up or something like that.

    What Crasha said is exactly what happened

    It's quite a big change.
