  • Silencer's Global Silence only works on heroes?

    Correct me if im wrong, but I remembered that in Dota 1, global silence silences everything, hero or non-hero, including neutrals. In dota 2 it only silences heroes.

    Has this changed recently? The tool-tip in fact now states it silences all heroes, doesnt mention non-hero units. So im not sure if this is intended or not even if its different from Dota 1.


    Incidentally, might I add that I'd really like to see game sound being completely muted like in Dota 1. Ironically, its Dota 2's tooltip and not dota 1, that states that 'all sound' stops, as if implying the world is completely muted. Im quite surprised this didnt make it in.

    I went back to test this in Dota 1, Global silence works on everything, not just heroes.

    Still, the new tooltip says it silences heroes, and not anything else. So, what you guys think, intended or not?

        The new tooltip says it affects heroes. So maybe its a deliberate change, just saying. IMO it should affect all units though.

          Silencer needs to be reworked to add new sound effects. You can play around with so much stuff using this hero.

            In my opinion his ulti should be reworked to add less sound effects. Being precise they should implement the "global silence".

                  just like in dota, for the duration of global silence all sounds should be disabled.
                  Before posting a bug read the Bug posting guidelines first and check the Known Bugs list For existing bugs.

                    Im just going to report this as a bug. If we want all sound to cease, global silence should silence all non-hero units including neutrals anyway, just as it did in Dota 1.
