Talk:Death Shield

Hello. There is some misunderstanding whether Cheating Death refers to this mechanics. In the description of the ability United We Fall of Meepo it says literally the following: "If Meepo dies, other allied Meepos in every lane also die, ignoring Death Shields". The definition of a shield is as follows: "if a unit would die, instead remove its death shield and it survives with 1 Health. A unit may only have one death shield at a time." And in the description of the card Cheating Death said: have a 50 % chance of surviving with 1 Health when they would die. That is, the question is that the description of the United We Fall clearly indicates ignoring the Death shield. And the only card with which this shield can be applied on Meepo is Cheating Death probably. So can we interpret the phrase "have a 50 % chance of surviving with 1 Health when they would die" as "has a 50 % chance of getting a Death shield"? And in that case Cheating Death don't work on Meepo. - Naraz dva

Valve updated United We Fall's description with a new keyword "Soulbound". This means that nothing can save Meepo if one dies, even Cheating Death. See Meepo. --Sanhard (talk) 08:39, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
So is card Cheating Death not a Death Shield mechanics card? -- Naraz dva 12:58, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
Yes. The only Death Shield mechanic is Relentless Zombie. -- Sanhard (talk) 14:11, 16 November 2018 (UTC)
