    I much prefer free camera mode but it feels quite unwieldy compared to watching replays in WC3. Specifically, f11 would change the perspective of players and it would scroll through blue, teal, yellow etc.

    Dota2 has some great features for obs mode but I think a great streamlining feature would be:

    Make pressing 1 select blue, double tap 1 to center on blue. 2 for teal, 5 orange, 9 Dark green, 0 brown etc.

    It would streamline viewing and probably be better for casting too without excess clicking. If there's already a command in D2 for this I'd love to learn about it!
