img1: enemy Kiril used his special, both heroes had defense and attack buff.
img2: I used Athena’s special, and it DISPELLED Kiril’s defense buff, but attack buff was still there.
img3: Sabina’s defense buff from Kiril is removed by Athena as well.
After img3, I 1-shot debuffed kiril with Sartana. The defense buff was clearly removed, not neutralized.
I don’t know if this is new, I have the 1.6 version.
Haven’t test it on other heroes except Kiril.
