  • Can we put Couriers in the "Shared Content" tab in game?

    Just like the HUD's and announcers, it would be great

    Share the couriers of what players have equipped in player loadout

    but separate the courier shared by factions (Dire can equip whatever their teammates have equipped, and radiant only what their teammates have equipped)

    Whoever buys the courier chooses what the couriers skin will be

    Just a thought, let me know if it will be good or not (or share your thoughts too)

    That way people could choose the best courier for them, imo it should be acessible to everyone on the team(s).
    It doesnt have THAT utility, but it is great! T-UP.

      If it's accessible for everyone on the team, people will start "fighting" for which courier they want and change it a ton of times

      Imo, if you're buying it you should be the one to choose

        Yeah, but sometimes your teammate wants to buy the courier with your skin, so maybe some option should be added in some subtle way for this, would be nice.

            the problem then comes that the value of couriers will drop in game cause suddenly they arent that rare anymore every game u will see so sparkling courier cause its shared and not cause its owned.

              Not really, it will show the courier to people in game and they might be tempted to get one themselves

              lets say you play with someone with a Golden Baby Roshan, you think its value will drop because you've seen it once?

                I actually think it'd have the opposite effect. It'd increase competition for flashy couriers because if you have one it can *definitely* be used and shown off, even if you end up playing carry or whatever.

                Right now it's just "What courier does my support have?", if everyone's couriers are available then it becomes a real in-team competition for "Which courier is more awesome and should be used?".

                  imho this is just retarded.
                  I bought my couriers because i liked them , why should i share them? I purchased the courier ingame , i get to use the skin i want. If anybody else wants to use their courier skin , they are more than welcomed to buy it themselves.
                  Not to mention that the sales would drop. Whats the point of me buying a courier from the shop knowing there is a 75% chance i wont get to use it anyway ?

                      read again what OP just said, you can share ur courier with ur team or if you dont want to share you just dont just like Announcers and HUDS

                      +1 for OP, good idea.

                          I would love to share my incredibly rare courier with other players with having to jump through hoops.
                          Valve doesn't care about the community. They only want to export their cosmetic team to the players so that they can profit of the fruits of their labor. It is clear that profits is the highest priority to Valve. Not the community, not the hero roster, not matchmaking, and not the endless list of bugs.

                          Valve is shitting on this community and people are praising them for doing it. Truly this is a dark age for DotA. ,.!.. Valve.

                            You can already do exactly that. Just whoever buys the courier, instead of using it, puts it in the inventory of the hero of the player with the desired courier, and when the hero uses the courier item, it will be in the form of the desired courier. Of course you can drop a bought courier item on the ground for an opponent to pick up and use, but I think the courier they activate is probably going to be owned by their team? Haven't tested it.

                            I will mercilessly add to my ignore list anyone that makes an incredibly annoying signature.
