    Random rain would actually be pretty cool.
    ~Never forget~

            Perhaps it could be cool if there were even some random minor gameplay effects like -10 movement speed on snow, +1 regen on sunny day...

            Simple and obvious things that should get fixed/added asap: SCOREBOARD, Ingame friend list, Different Ping for Roshan, Add Notes to Players, Accept Button while tabbed

              you are not the first one that opened a thread about it. I would not be surprised that we get those weather modifiered at some point of Dota 2's development, but heroes and features like the LAN, coaching or team management are all higher on the priority list imo, so some time needs to pass till we can get those .
              specs for bugreports:
              AMD Radeon HD 8750M
              win 7

                No. NO! NO!
                Weather needs to be purely cosmetic, not affecting gameplay at all. If that is the case, it's awesome for the games atmosphere and I'd really like to have it again.

                Besides, your suggestion is really weakly thought through: Why would a Nightstalker get +1 regen in the sun? Or why would AA or Lich be slowed by snow?

                  Wouldnt be surprised to even see them in shop just like announcers.


                  • #10
                    weather modes as items i will buy it
                    just don't make them unusual or immortal
                    players can afford mythical or legendary classes


                    • #11
                      It should use same mechanics as announcers.

                        I was thinking make it like ambient creatures

                        Random rain, snow, crickets on a warm day would be awesome if doen properly (not effecting "vision" etc)

                        Ofc make it optional. T-UP.

                              great idea
                              ofcourse there is much to be done before implementation of weather
                              probably it will be implemented as separated effects avaible in shop (rain 0.99EUR, snow 1.99EUR ect )

                              but it cant affect gameplay - it would be madness
