  • "Courier bought" Announcement.

    The amount of times my team ends up with 2 couriers (sometimes even 3...) is increasing alarmingly as i've noticed that people don't reead the chat at all, for that reason i think it would be a good idea to add an announcer line that specifies when a courier has been bought.

    I'm pretty sure i'm not the only that has ended up with more than one courier on his team. I think it would be a nice helpful addition and would prevent an unnecesary gold waste.

    During the hero select stage say "I'll buy the courier" if you're set on picking support.

    Don't say it during loading screen or when the game has started, say it immediately when picking heroes.

    works 90% of the time

        And I've never seen someone try to carry with Crystal Maiden, but that's not to say it has never happened.

          I've seen this and done it myself before, it's frustrating.

          We weren't able to benefit at all from having two couriers, it just made the couriers easier to kill and harder to keep track of.

          It seems to me that the courier should be unavailable in the shop if one already exists. I agree with the comments about organizing items with the team but shit happens, why not prevent the shit from happening in this case?

            Isn't the restock cooldown enough to stop this?

              Some people walks his courier out from the fountain area so I can't see it. With a massive chat you sometimes buy a new courier by accident.
              And it sometimes happen when you have an unusual courier or more than 1 unusual holder in a team. Everyone wants to show an effect .xD

                Well you can see if you have a courier or not because it says "NO COURIER" on the bottom right. If people want to show an effect then they intended to buy a courier even though theres already one so its not a problem.
