  • [Suggestion] Display total gold needed for buyback

    Now if you mouse over your gold counter, pop-up with buyback cost is shown. But the thing is it doesn't take into account amount of gold lost on death. Yes, it's not difficult to multiply the cost by 1.5 (unless you have enough reliable gold), but calculating such things in midst of thinking what to buy or where to go may be painful sometimes.
    I mean, I would like it to be displayed like this:

    Unreliable gold: 2324
    Reliable gold: 905
    Buyback cost: 1454 (Total: 2181) [or even (Total: 1454) if you have >1454 reliable gold]

    Because you never want to buy a new item, leave with certain amount of gold between buyback cost and (buyback cost+death penalty) and find out you're short 100 gold to come back into a fight.

    Calculate it yourself.
    100+Level*Level*1.5+GameTime*15, rounded down to a multiplier of 50.

      ...And multiply the thing by 1.5 to count total. Don't forget to watch minimap and lasthit!
