    Based on my experience, Toss does not cancel allied channeling spells

    but I don't know if toss can interrupt the channeling of enemy units.

    So, does it cancel the channeling of an enemy?

    Yes, Toss pauses the unit for 1 second,

    Thus, cancels [note=Both Allied and Enemy]channeling spells[/note].

    How come Toss does not cancel allied channeling spells then?

    Toss cancel both enemy's and ally's channeling spell.
    There are only a few spells that change enemy's position without interruption (to heroes), they are CK's Reality Rift, Ezalor's Blinding Light, Force Staff, Pudge's Meat Hoot (to magic immune heroes and invisible heroes), Kunkka's X Marks The Spot Return (to hidden heroes).

    Hey, how come toss interrupts the channeling of an ally? I've tested it before. I tossed Rhasta while he is netting an enemy unit but he wasn't interrupted! @_@

    Edit: i haven't read the 3rd comment before i posted this.

    No, I just tested it.

    And the result was: Toss cancels allied Shackles.

    I remember playing a Tiny+Sand King combo at some point and he could toss me into enemies while I channeled Epicenter without canceling it...

    Was a long time ago though

    Yes it does cancel any channeling spells

    Hope that heroes w/ -disablehelp won't be tossed.. Because there are so many game spoilers that use Tiny

    As many have stated Toss didn't always pause the unit and tossing a channeling SK/CM was quite gamebreaking.

    It only cancels the animation and hardcoded magic immunity, whereas the damage and softcoded magic immunity will not be ended if Juggernaut is paused.

    It cancels the entire hardcoded spell, including the attack damage reduction.
