Maximum attack speed is 600% = 6 times less attack time Therefore, CD of 0.2 is only in effect if BAT < 1.2 seconds. Therefore, Maelstrom nerf only have 2 possible heroes to affect: Drow riki Alchemist at lvl 18 + max attack speed (not sure if it affects lvl 12 too alch with max attack) LC, because moment of courage can proc during an attack (having 2 attacks in a row) maybe ember? maybe weaver? If Icefrog wanted to do anything in this change, he only wanted to discourage LC from making this build. It is still too minor nerf that no one would care about. what do you think? Edit even weaver have .25 s between attacks. Not sure, can this affect weaver somehow? do you think there is any other case where this affect hero? Edit, actually for ember its wiki says Jumps in 0.2 second intervals. The jumps are random between all marked units, there are no priorities. Does that mean ember will get affected?
