I thought I was going to have to endure an entire TI without ever seeing Lina, so thanks Navi and based Puppey for picking my favourite hero.
And I am so so so sorry that you lost partly because you picked her. (Eeep.)
And Icefrog, I know you've been buffing Lina since forever, but please, please, please figure out a good way to make her viable. If you really don't want to touch her horrid animation casting, then make Fiery Soul an AOE skill.
Or make LSA's stun duration be 5 seconds.
Or give her an automatic Aegis on her inventory when selected.
Or... something. :)
