  • [Duplicate] Ping while using items/spells

    The way this happens to me is when I go to eat a tango I end up clicking so quickly that I'm still holding down the alt key (my hotkeys for items are Alt + qweasd) I end up pinging right on top of the tree. I believe it happens with abilities and items as well, I've gotten so used to the annoyance that I don't really notice it any more.

    As noted in the title it's a very minor bug, but I'm sure it's unintended nonetheless.

    Why should it be a bug that you ping on an intended combination?
    I mean, you clicked it. Quite annoying fore people being used to alt hotkeys from Dota 1.
    Still, not a bug at all :x
    If you think I've closed or deleted a post unjustified, feel free to PM me and I'll explain it to you/discuss it with you further.

      It could consider spell/item usages as not being valid for a ping to be sent... And according to WC3 DotA this is a bug, it didn't send a ping when casting a skill while the alt key was held down.

        As he said "I end up clicking so quickly that I'm STILL holding down alt" I'm pretty sure he uses the item and pings afterwards. That wouldn't be a bug.

          Just change your hotkeys and try it for yourself. You don't have to click several times. You ping on a tree, and then eat it.
          It looks like you are warning your teammates that you are going to eat it...

          There was a thread on the forums about this issue for sure. I just don't know what terms to search for... "Ping" returns so many irrelevant results.
          As far as I remember, it also had some pictures or a video, too.

            this happens all the time ever since dota 2 beta was out and still hasn't been fixed.

            i set my item hotkeys to alt q w e a s d

            when i click and use any item ONCE it will both ping AND use the item in one click. makes no sense.. game should separate item use and ping functions. don't allow pinging while an item is currently being selected imo, it was fine in dota 1.

              ^I agree, and it *TECHNICALLY* is a bug, you should not be able to ping while targetting a skill at all, as I said before... And there have been several threads about it, but I think most got closed IIRC

                Actually I'm used to these hotkeys because of HoN. They also make a lot of sense IMO, if you use qwer as your spell hotkeys.

                It's one click.

                Yes and yes. It's like twitter, I need to let people know I am going to eat .

                Also if you happen to come across that thread that would be awesome...

                  There isn't any videos apparently. I probably thought that it included a video, because I had tested what OP has explained back then, and my reproduction has been saved like a video on my memory...
                  Brain is a weird thing =/

                  Personally, I find using alt-combined hotkeys dumb. I simply put my items on 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 above the QWER, and Control Groups on F2, F3, F4, etc..
                  But still, although it is not a [Bug], it's still an [Annoyance].
                  Over all, this thread is a [Duplicate] of the thread I have linked above.
