    Wink [Confirmed] Spirit Break's nether strike does not stop after the death of target

    Summary:
    A really amusing thing happened during a game I played some days ago. It wasn't an especially good game or anything, but anyhow I got to have a bloodstone with 34 charges. Then I was killed in the enemy's base and the spirit breaker of the opposing team had just cast his nether strike on me, which resultet in a very amusing situation. I respawned instantly because of all the charges on my bloodstone, and spirit breaker's nether strike hit me after I respawned in my own base.
    I have seen similar things happen when you just finished casting a tp, and spirit breaker shows up at your destination, but the same thing should not work for resurrection imo.

    Repro Steps:
    1. Get a bloodstone and get a ton of charges on it, so that you will respawn instantly.
    2a. Die
    2b. Have a Spirit Breaker in the opposing team start casting his nether strike on you just before you die.

    Result:
    Spirit Breaker's Nether Strike will hit you after you respawn in your base.

    Expected Result:
    Spirit Breaker should show up in the area where you died, with the attack having no effect except him teleporting to your corpse.

    So, this is probably not the most important bug to fix, but I thought that I should report it anyways. Atleast it's kind of amusing

    In case anyone wanna look it up or just see it with their own eyes the match id is 60831792 and it happens at 33:05.

    I didn't see this reported anywhere so I'm going to bump this old bug with this:
    Nether Strike should be canceled by both the death of the target AND by Spirit Breaker's death, whichever is applicable. Currently it seems that Spirit Breaker's death triggers the Strike immediately.

    It gets canceled. It also doesn't teleport him all over the map if his target moved very far.
    So this changed "fixed" some bugs.
    Please, just call me buny.
