    Did it use Mass Teleport? As for the old version, was it invulnerable Way Gates or something else (the 2 portal thing)?

    In DotA 1, the spell is based on Channel (which has no effect), and the movement is accomplished with the function SetUnitPosition(), which changes the unit's X and Y coordinates and orders it to stop.

    There used to be some really ancient Pitlord Waygate ultimate which I think reminds a lot like HotS Medivh portals.

    I really can't recall its entire functionality, because the hero was unplayable poopoo before Expulsion buffs.

    But his model was 33% fatter, so that made up for it.

    nah hardcoded spells are unreliable and have undesired behavior in many cases

    Some hardcoded abilities have desirable undesired behaviors though, like Crow Form. :)
