  • Courier Sharing: First courier bought is shared by team. Second can be individual.

    Many people complain about teamates making bad decisions with the team courier so I came up with this suggestion:

    First courier bought is team courier, doesn't matter who bought it.

    Any courier bought after the first can be unshared by the player who bought it. If unshared, it is now personal and is used by that player (hotkeys etc.) instead of team courier.

    This would allow bottle crowing, and would not affect the team in any bad way.



    If you like this idea, please comment and rate it so it can get some more visibility.

    I like the idea but it may cause people to not buy a courier until someone else has bought one though? Just a thought

      You dont need an individual courier. The current system is fine

        Hmm individual courier is not needed... but someone doesn't mind in spending another 200 gold just for the sake of bottling, why not?

          You did understand that somebody having an individual courier would not affect you with the team courier in any way, right?

          Besides that, it's 1 less person using the main courier, so you would be benefited.

            It's not 200, it's 150+220, and some pinoy competitive players do it a lot. Last time I saw an Slardar with bottlecrow outlaning a Batrider

                So how does having an extra courier affect you? OP suggested that the first courier is a team one while all the rest can belong to individual players. There is absolutely no downside to this so a +1 from me.

                  first of all, it is -150 gold(for each courier) in early game. beside that, it will cause stupid arguments about who will buy first courier.

                    And again, how does -150g on a teammate that wants his own courier affect you?

                    As for arguments about who will buy the first one, that's just your assumption. I don't see why would anything change. The person who picked support or plans to play as one will get it like they do it now.

                    It's not like you're gonna see this a lot in pubs but I totally don't mind it, if they put it in game for those occasions when someone might want it.

                      I agree with this suggestion as well. If someone wants their own courier, they can purchase it. It is already doable in the current game, adding this however would make it easier. Which is why I agree to it.

                        At first I was like "great suggestion, but make the 2nd courier private by default, as it's not popular to have 2 team couriers to begin with".
                        Then I was like "But why is that? 150 gold for 1 courier, 300 for 2. That's not much, why don't people use 2 couriers instead of 1 flying? Looks like a strategy that needs to be executed by pros first before it's adapted by pubs".

                        So t-up on the suggestion as it is!

                          +1, but since IceFrog implemented Tranquil Boots, you really don't need Bottle courier anymore ...

                            AFAIK Tranquil Boots doesn't regen your mana

                            With Bottle Crow you can jungle with Storm/Pugna/ShadowDemon/Krob/any hero with an spamable nuke
