  • [Fixed] Tabbing to abandoned heroes.

    We had a player abandon before pick so he got some random hero which sat in the fountain the entire game. This wouldn't really be a huge problem if I hadn't been playing Lone Druid and kept tabbing to this useless low level hero instead of my bear. This was even compounded by the fact that my bear didn't even seem to be in the tab rotation at all. Surely my bear is the most important unit aside from my hero and therefore should be the first unit in the tab rotation and preferably the only one when no other unit is selected.

    Summary: Tabbing selects abandoned heroes over hero pets.

    Now I got this issue again, it doesn't happen often but it's so damn annoying when it does.

      Am I doing something wrong or they just don't give a fuck? It is unbearable and I'm going to have to leave games as soon as we have an abandon...

        Which is a shame since I almost won a 3v5 today and this issue had a big hand in us not succeeding.

          This is so obviously a mistake, barely anyone uses abandoned heroes and even if you did why on earth should it be first priority of all the units you command? I would even accept tabbing to the closest unit you command since that can be justified, but an abandoned level 1 hero sitting in fountain? It's absurd.

              I should mention that this is only when you have just the hero selected, if you have hero and bear selected it will tab to bear but I use f1 and tab if I want them to move different directions.

                I'm in a game right now, DC pudge and I have bear alive and press f1 and tab and it goes to pudge. I don't know how to document this though.

                  Every time I play Enchantress in vs. AI (trying to get better at micro before I take it against people again), someone will abandon without fail, and without fail I'll always end up tabbing to them instead of my dominated creeps.

                  It's really, really annoying. I'd really like an option where the tab cycle skips over DC/abandoned heroes by default because it just makes using it really messy.

                      not sure if it helps but I use set F2 to select my units under my control ie: illusions

                      Might be a temporary solution just until it gets patched but not familiar with whether the hotkey works on bear as well as it does on illusions

                        Thanks, I tried binding it to 2 since I have bear and hero bound to 1 but because I'm so used to tabbing it just got confusing and this happens so rarely, pick Lone Druid; get an abandon and wish to keep playing, that you really can't get used to the new bind. And I don't want to mess up the good games trying to get used to a new method.

                          [Unconfirmed] Can't Use tab to micro meep when someone leaves the game

                          Valve please fix this. When someone Disconnects Everyone automatically takes control of that hero. Everytime I use tab lets say for meepo I get the use of that hero in it therefore I cant micro properly with meepo or any other heroes that have 2 or more units to use.

                              my guess is that the subgroup modifier automatically selects the leaver hero instead of the meepos in his group.
                              can anybody confirm?
