  • Do we need patrol command?

    I know it`s main purpose is for classic RTS style of gaming but it could be useful for using commanded creeps to patrol certain areas etc etc. I think it deserves to be implemented into the Dota. What ya think?

            That's the spirit!

            You can use it effectively to make illusions look like playercontrolled.

              Can come in handy, why not.

              Best use that comes to mind is putting summons to patrol to cover a wider area (eg. Weaver's old Watchers).

                Well you can issue shift orders a bunch instead, but assuming it's easy to implement, sure why not.

                  Honestly, I disagree with the patrol function. The reason I disagree is spoiler can use it to afk whenever there is a quarrel.

                      For me no, if I want to make my illusion or similiar travel around I just waypoint it. Patrol seems unnecessary, for me that is.

                        With waypoints, you have limited number of points where your unit travels. With patrol command, you can set several different points instead of just two by using Shift key while assigning patrol, to make your unit travel at different directions for unlimited time. It`s more efficient that`s all.

                          Never used it... making waypoints is enough.

                              I don't think this is necessary... using Shift will do I believe.
