  • Pause Functionality - Please Clarify/Fix

    So this is a fairly minor issue, but one that could easily be fixed. When attempting to pause or unpause, sometimes you are not able to do so. I'd like to see two changes:

    1. When you are not able to pause or unpause the game, instead of doing nothing, display a message that states why you aren't able to do this, or at least that you aren't able to. "You cannot pause right now"

    2. Clarify the rules (i.e. the game's programming, not social convention) about when the game can be paused or unpaused.

    When an ability is on cooldown or you don't have enough mana and you try to use it, you get a message. When you try to skill your ult at lvl 1, you get a message. When you try to buy something but don't have enough money, you get a message. When you try to buy something from the secret shop but you aren't near one, you get a message and a map ping. (And on, and on). Why is it that when you try to pause/unpause but can't, you get no message?


    P.S.: When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie, you get a message!
