    Well the rest is correct, but...
    Sticky Napalm should not be fully removed by Dark Pact and and Kraken Shell.

    Dark Pact and and Kraken Shell should only remove Sticky Napalm's slow, but even that should happen just momentaneously.
    Let me explain what happens on W3 DotA:

    Let's say you have stacked 10 x level 4 Napalms on a Slark or or Tidehunter; resulting in 90% movement slow 70% turn rate slow and 250 magical bonus damage on each damage instance done by the Batrider
    And then this Slark casts Dark Pact or or the Tidehunter's Kraken Shell procs
    At that moment, the 90% movement slow gets removed; resulting in 0% movement slow 70% turn rate slow and 250 magical bonus damage ...
    >> So, we have to agree here, turn rate slow and amplified damage aspects do not get removed at all.
    Then, the Batrider dude casts one, only one Sticky Napalm on this Slark or or Tidehunter, and BAM; resulting in full 90% movement slow 70% turn rate slow and 250 magical bonus damage ...
    >> So, even the movement slow doesn't get fully removed, it just gets temporarily removed until another instance of Sticky Napalm is cast upon these two fellas, Slark and and Tidehunter.


    Another scenario:
    > Cast 2 Sticky Napalms on the Slark; 18% ms slow and the rest...
    > Slark casts Dark Pact
    > 0% ms slow, rest is still there
    > 1 more Sticky Napalm on the Slark; 27% ms slow and the rest


    I have tested all these. I am pretty much sure on all these. If anybody has doubts, feel free to test it yourselves.
    This skill has 3 seconds of cooldown and the buff duration is 10 seconds long, meaning that this Batrider guy has 7 full seconds to refresh the Napalm. This isn't an unrealistic scenario, at all.

    That's a pretty strange interaction. I wonder if it's due to a WC3 engine limitation?

    Nah, removing it entirely shouldn't be a problem at W3, I think. I am almost sure that it could be made to get entirely removed on DotA.

    From what I understand the 70% turn rate slow was hard to put into the original DotA, and possibly the bonus magic damage for Batrider's spells for each stack. Unless I'm wrong (which I probably am) they weren't kept as buffs and only the slow was an actual buff, the others were triggers or instances that couldn't be removed by purges instantly.

    I am pretty sure this is intended.

    This is too much.
    On DotA, it barely gets removed, and even after that, applying one more Sticky Napalm instance reverts everything back.
    I mean, it almost doesn't get removed at all, and yet it gets fully removed on Dota 2.

    a bug is a bug. and i think if making it intended would change balance too much.

    yes it should be fully removed, dark pact has enough bugs already and Napalm is strong enough - make it intended change

    This looks like W3 Dota bug.

    Napalm isn't strong at all, if anything revert it back to not being removed on dark pact/krakenshell still would be a better "intended" fix as this (only slow being temporarly not removed instead of the entire debuff gone) ... or you know, just let 'em fix it and stop complaining with all this "hero xy is underpowered make it an inteded fix" -> for balance discusions go to playdota.com
