  • Multiple units - multitasking

    If I play furion, brood or enigma - I sometimes want to use my units for scouting.

    In wc3 I pressed my hotkey with my units (love the "select all other units" key btw, really usefull) I right clicked on the first place I wanted to scout, then I "decelected" one of the units and repeated untill I had sent them all to different locations.

    In dota 2 this get really complicated since you can't "see your selected units" in the same way. You have the small icons in the top left corner, but you can't "quick choose" between them, and you can't "shift deselect" them as you could in wc3.

    So, I propose the implementation of the "deselect" function. Hold shift and press icon = deselect unit.

    Support, one of the most important things of dota is the versatility in microing a group of units
