  • Line of Sight Through Trees

    So this patch they changed it so that you can no longer see through trees when you are right next to them, and asked feedback on it.

    I feel like this new way is inferior to the old way. It feels much more claustrophobic now, and there is no more cool ambushes, waiting in the woods and positioning yourself correctly.

    The old way just felt more evolved.

    I think it is good now, (cool) juking works better now I guess (have only played 3 games with the new patch, so I haven't tested it that much yet). Dunno why you would feel claustrophobic because of that change.
    specs for bugreports:
    i5-4200U
    AMD Radeon HD 8750M
    win 7

      Maybe claustrophobic was a wrong word but what I meant was that your vision, particularly in some spots, is ridiculously limited for what it makes sense.

      I agree that it can hinder some jukes but I never had that problem with the old system with either juking or being juked.

        I disagree with you. Juking is much more important that's why it's such a good change. If you want to ambush people you either already have vision through lane creeps or wards.
        Calling it "the old way" is also completely wrong. Its always been like this in DotA1 and that's why it needs to stay. Juking is a skill that was undermined tremendously before and now has been restored to its former glory.

          I think that the current change is good. Often in the beta prior to this change I would be behind some trees preparing an ambush and the hero would just see me even though I should have been hidden... A bit stupid

            Obviously I am talking about this beta. And I don't think it needs to be the same as in DotA1. DotA is a map inside 7-8 years old game that is limited by some stuff, like this I would imagine, that DotA 2 should improve and experiment upon. Yes, it is different than wc3 LoS but it brings new kind of gameplay with it.

            Oh well, opinions.

              With old sight I died 3-4 times while juking since the enemy could see me through the trees. Havn't noticed the same problem after the patch, not been looking for it all that much either though.
