  • Pressing hold position doesn't prevent hero from attacking

    In order to last hit I was used to just press hold position once. Then my hero did nothing more than standing around. But here in Dota 2 the hero is still attacking. Why?

    I tried holding the h-key, pressing it multiple times, pressing it with a lot of force, but my hero still keeps attacking.

    Is this supposed to be this way? How is one supposed to last hit now?

    hold = hold position. Stop (s key) = stop attacking (stop everything I believe). You can turn off auto-attack in the menu, then hold will stop him from attacking (I think).

      You must be from HoN, Hold position in DotA never stopped auto-attacking.
      Every time someone make a false report.
      Making people's losses feel worse with just my name (don't ask me how it work, I certainly don't)

      Currently observed Orb(Unique Attack Modifiers), Critical, and Bash interactions for DotA2

      People who cry MM isn't fair: Maybe you're not as great as you make yourself to be.
      People who wants surrender: It exists, but I'm not teaching you how to do it.

        Hold position works the same as it did in Warcraft 3. You still attack, but don't move from your position (hold position).

          Really? It's a long time since I played dota in wc3. But I could swear it was that way in wc3, pressing hold to prevent hero from doing anything.

          Yes, I am from HoN, and I really like the elegant way of pressing just one key, and waiting for the next order

            I had trouble with this as well, but as baloroth said you can turn off auto-attack in options and then both s and h will do what s did in HoN. Would be nice for this to be mappable to different keys but I've gotten by without it.

              If you have auto-attack off:
              Move, Stop, Hold will make your hero not attack anything at all.

              Attack, Attack Move, Follow (right click on allied unit) or using skills/items will make your hero auto-attack again until another order is given.
              Every time someone make a false report.

                  But they should at least make melee hero stop moving when you pressed hold position.
