A recent Dota 2 update has fixed a bug with upgraded amplifications. It was mostly to combat the new Sange’s effect.
The new Outlanders update removed Sange’s old Maim ability, which slowed enemies on hit, and replaced it with a health regeneration amplification effect. The amp stacked additively, resulting in unintentionally absurd percentages.
The Sange health regen change was noted particularly by Huskar players, whose innate Berserker’s Blood is a passive health regen skill that scales higher based on how low his health gets.
