  • Chat wheel refinement

    The chat wheel should be evolved imo. It's an excellent feature that could be improved slightly, just to make it that much more efficient. IE: Make it so when you hold down the hot key and move towards missing, it goes to a second wheel that then lets you alert specifically which hero is missing. Make it so the ward wheel would have 4 options, 2 that would allow you to specify what type of ward and 2 that let you specify what type of ward an enemy has placed down where you pinged. There's probably more that could be thought up, but I'm tired, so lets see if people can expand on this. I bring it up because communication ban sucks when you can't effectively coordinate with team. Especially since I'm banned because someone got ganked, and it was my fault. So him swearing at me, and then reporting me for chat abuse, gets me communication banned. Cool.

    Might want to post this somewhere else (I believe suggestions go to Misc. but I'm not sure).

      i like the idea but valve had to make sure that using chatwheel fast only selects the standart way still. because when im mid i just press the hotkey and instantly move my mouse, this takes about 0.2 seconds. i dont want to select another hero to be missing just because i do it fast..

      can you elaborate on the "hold down the hotkey" thing? is it supposed to be like when you hold the hotkey for 0.5 it pops up the further options like the kind of ward?
