Maybe you should not make presents have a cooldown. Pretty tough to impossible to dodge anything while having an unopened present on you or while trying to get one to a Santa. The slow still remains for a while after the present is given. All in all...

ADDITIONAL NECESSARY INFORMATION
  • A credits list in the map thread description is required where the names of the resource (models, skins, icons, spells, sound etc.) authors are mentioned along with the specific resource. It would be a luxury to have links leading to the used resources. Credits in the Quest Log would be appreciated too.
  • A detailed changelog in the first post would be helpful to reviewers and notify fans about the newest implementations to your map.
  • Map thread tags are important. Please use those that fit and not more or none.

Thanks for approving and 5/5 :wink:

You mean the unpacking ability having cooldown? Yea could be changed.

Pretty tough to impossible to dodge anything while having an unopened present on you or while trying to get one to a Santa.

That's the point of course, but yes it can be frustrating. Jump helps avoid some shots, but in the end you are supposed to be a prime target with a present.
We had many minor iterations of slow rate, and I think the current one is somewhat balanced.
If an enemy picks up a present and you are on other half of map, with slide and jump you still have the opportunity to prevent them from scoring.
But if you kill your persuaders, you usually have the time to score a present.
I don't think lowering slow would be a good choice, do you have other suggestions?

The slow still remains for a while after the present is given.

Default wc3 aura behavior :p I know I could fix it with the new removeBuffs native, but I actually like it.
Gives the enemy another chance at killing you if they didn't get you before scoring.

Even though you like the effect, I just wanted to say that you didn't need the new native to get rid of that behavior :p you just had to do this:
JASS:
call UnitRemoveAbility(u, abilityId)
call UnitRemoveAbility(u, buffId)
