Default Jurrac Guaiba vs Mermail Abysslinde/Mermail Abysspike

Recently i have read some rulings about Jurrac Guaiba vs Mermail Abysslinde/Mermail Abysspike that state that if Mermail Abysslinde gets destroyed by battle with Jurrac Guaiba and you choose to special summon a Mermail Abysspike, Abysspike misses the timing to activate his effect.And that is because Jurrac Guaiba gets chain 1 and Linde chain 2 so that by the time you special summon Abysspike you still have to resolve Guaiba's effect.

I am 99% that this ruling is false since Jurrac Guaiba's effect activates when the monster is destroyed by battle and Linde's effect activates when she is destroyed AND send to grave.

So my quetion is do Jurrac Guaiba and Linde form a chain or not?

If not please explain why.

Effects that activate when a monster is destroyed in battle activate at the end of the damage step unless they specifically say otherwise. The lack of "and sent to the graveyard" just means Guaiba will activate even while something like Macro Cosmos is active that stops the destroyed monster from going to the graveyard. Guaiba and Linde will form a chain with each other.

So you will have

CL1: Guaiba
CL2: Linde

If Linde the SS Pike, it'll miss the timing.
