  • Tooltips disappear while spectating

    While spectating ( this only applies to player perspective camera view ), if I want to check a hero's spells I don't have time because the tooltip closes too fast. But if I move my cursor around the spell it remains open.

    I'm not sure whether this is a bug or it was intended this way but it seems like a bug to me. I usually spectate games in order to learn more about different heroes, their abilities and how should they be played. I find it really hard to actually learn something when I can't even know what different spells do.
    Thank you and hope I posted this in the right place.

    P.S.: This applies to both live and test build versions.

      Confirmed. Latest build, in addition it also happens in replays.

      The problem here is that the actual player's cursor is behaving like a real cursor and is killing the tooltips (e.g. when it moves over another item with a tooltip).
      Rules to be a good beta tester:
      1. Don't bring WC3 limitations to DOTA 2.
      2. Be an example. You are not here to play ALL games for fun. You are here to test so we can have a better game.
      3. Don't say that something is working as intended, unless it makes complete sense, not just because it was like DOTA 1.
      4. Being a better player than someone doesn't mean his argument is null-and-void.
      5. Use the search.
