  • Chat wheel missing calls, ty, etc, do not play audio.

    This is has been a bug or a feature since the chat wheel was introduced and I feel now that the wheel is more customisable the audio also needs to be hooked up to the separate missing calls that you can give. I think a lot of people thought that the heroes saying missing was curious at first but it has become a pretty fundamental part of keeping track on the game, and it's obviously much easier to hear those missing calls whilst you're busy rather than reading every single specific miss call for a lane.

    Currently you can only have the hero audible say missing for the lane you're in via the context-sensitive (sic) generic 'missing !'. If you bind the others to keys or to the wheel the hero doesn't say anything. There are numerous times in every game when you need to call miss for other lanes, because perhaps mid has left mid to gank and you notice a bit later their Pudge also goes missing. You can't audibly call missing for mid. You should be able to do this.

    For those worried about audio spam you can restrict it in just the same way that the wheel is currently restricted (or not).

    tldr; Please make it so that we can call miss for specific lanes and have the hero say missing.

    Used to hear missing from all lanes and still do from bots in bot matches, however a patch broke the audio from others players. I don't read the chat log while playing, so i tell em if you don't use a mic i don't care. If the missing audio worked i would be aware as they could use that if they don't have a mic.

      That might be a separate issue. I don't think the missing calls for other lanes ever triggered hero audio (except from bots in bot games). It has never worked via binding those missing top/mid/bot to keys.
