  • [SUGGESTION] Holding right mouse to move (plus some stuff regarding minimap)

    Okay before anyone comes and starts raging "GO BACK TO PLAYING LEAGUE YOU NOOB", just hear me out.

    I myself don't need this option, but I've been giving invites to many friends lately, some of whom are really experienced in LoL. I've been training my buddy a lot and seems that the thing he has the biggest gripe in is that you can't hold right mouse to move, instead you need to spam it. I think if you could get this to work you'd have an easier time competing with LoL.

    I'm suggesting for an option where you could choose if you want to use the "hold to move" option.

    The other thing that still bugs me a bit is that I still sometimes misclick on the minimap when I'm trying to retreat or chase a guy. The fact is that even though the minimap was good where it was in Warcraft 3, it makes no sense to have it where it is since most of the clicks are on the left-bottom -> top right axel. It's just too easy to by mistake click on the minimap and kill yourself by turning around. IMHO either move the minimap or even better make an option to not be able to click on minimap with right click.

    +1 Totally agree with that.
    But probably all the elitists in this forum will start their flame -.-
    I really hope they improve the user interface.

      +1 for option
      UI is very important
      but i think player maybe easy to control the hero direction by this way

          Care to give some constructive feedback? Why would it hurt you to have an OPTION to be able to hold right button? I'm not really suggesting moving the minimap either, that's something a lot of people wouldn't agree with but I think the guys at Riot did the right thing moving it to the top left. Think about how most of your clicking goes. It's either to bottom left or top right most of the time... What I am however asking is an option (read: OPTION, OPTION that can be turned off or on if you so please) that clicking in the minimap with your right click wouldn't move your hero. Explain to me why implementing these two changes in the form of an OPTION is bad?

            well i disagree with moving the minimap, but yes there should be the option for those to decide where they think it's better located
            however i really dislike the whole idea of holding the right mouse button to move =/

                +0.5 for "hold button move" (i dont think it's really necessary, but i can try it Never played LoL, maybe that option is ok, actually, for me everything that can be toggled on/off in options is ok)
                +0.5 for minimap moving, but only as an option. I want to keep mine in bottom left corner, it always been there...

                  Nevertheless, I don't see how the first point can be bad. I mean, I would never use it and in my opinion you just have to play the game once, at most twice, to get used to the rightclicking, but w/e. Clearly most LoL players never played a lot of other games besides League, so give them the option.

                    As far as the "hold to move" option goes, I don't care so if it helps others, it's no problem if it gets added as a personal choice option (or at least dota console command).
                    The minimap thing is a different story. It shouldn't be moved, but I see no problem if there is an option where you decide if it's on the right or left (although there may be implications regarding the shop).

                    As for the accidental clicks, I had enough of dying stupidly so I just removed the possibility to right click. The only down side is you can't TP or move using the minimap; but you get used to it

                      Huh, is there an option like that, I gotta check that myself (or is it a console thing?)

                        I don't really like the option of having the mouse pressed all the time (mainly because it would hurt the mouse and my finger) but if someone find this useful... could be a good add
                        I give this a +0.5 :P (since I don't find it useful at all but some people may)

                        PS: I WOULD HATE having the minimap on the other side, I would feel odd for months, and it's not relevant, only a matter of people clicking with no control

                          Weird, I tried out LoL and I had absolutely no problem with it. Maybe different for each person...

                            maybe, it bothered me a lot since I use the minimap a lot (clicking and watching) so it was like "something was missing", for me at least made me take another second to look the minimap, and it bothered me (since most of use look at the mini map like the car mirror, just a quick second/half second quite often).
                            It could be optional which side the minimap is tho, but if they move it by definition to the right side I would rage :P

                              I know what you mean, this is what I experienced when I played Age of Empires the last time. But I got used to it within only maybe 20 minutes or so.
