    [Fixed] Wisp: Tether has wrong duration if I tether during channeling of relocate

    Kablams bug on Wisp #2

    Summary:
    Tether breaks during relocate if I tether during channeling. This is obviously a bug since it does not break if i tether before i start channeling the ultimate. This is seriously a pain, since it's almost impossible to re-tether when both tether and relocate has the exact same duration.

    Repro Steps:
    1: Channel a relocate somewhere
    2: Tether a unit
    3: relocate
    4: Watch the tether break just before you and the tethered unit goes back

    Result:
    Rage! My friends rage on me. I either accidentaly leave them in base or in the fray....

    Expected Result:
    In DotA, the tether always holds during a relocate.

    Confirmed.
    Seems like tether assumes it was started when u started channel, that's why it ends when ~2s till end.

    yes, but in this case the previous bug report was about a different bug.

    [Confirmed] Tether/Relocate bug

    If you cast relocate first, then tether (right before you are relocated to the destination), the tether duration should get refreshed to 12+(leftover time until relocate starts) seconds.
    This would mean that at the very moment when you come back from the relocate, the tether ends - not earlier, not later.
    To be sure, I compared it with WC3 where it is working as I explained it should.

    It somehow doesn't do that, though. I guess it adds the whole relocate casting time:

    [00:31.39] Wisp receives Teleporting buff from Wisp. (Relocate start)
    [00:33.56] Wisp receives Tethered buff from Wisp. (Tether start, T1)
    [00:33.56] Juggernaut receives Tethered buff from Wisp.
    [00:33.93] Wisp loses Teleporting buff. (Relocate destination reached, T2)
    [00:33.93] Wisp receives Return buff from Wisp.
    [00:45.96] Wisp loses Return buff. (Relocate ends, original position reached)
    [00:48.56] Wisp loses Tethered buff. (Tether ends)

    Tether lasted 14.6 seconds (12+2.6), ("Teleporting" lasted 2.6 seconds)
    Tether should have lasted 12+(T2-T1)=12.4 seconds.

    ^I would highly recommend changing the title. (something to do with tether duration increase incorrect if cast while channeling relocate)

    i eventually decided to merge it with the original, cause it contained repro and videos.
