  • [Suggestion]Skill overhead

    Here is a concept it would appear when skill is used for like 0.5 second or even lower. I think it would help new people to distinguish skills on how do they look like also i think there should be option to turn it off/on in spectator if it's added into game.

    As long as it is toggleable, I agree it could be pretty useful for new people and should not impact the higher skilled players.Pretty good idea
    The world is black and white. On one side there are those who are right, complain about valve, spam unhelpfully and everyone who disapprove what you are doing are obviously valveknights.

      I think this is a very good idea especially for spectators because for people who are watching DotA for the first time or new players who still dont really understand what is going on it could really provide some insight. I would like a toggle function for it though

        +1 for toggleable. Should be quite helpful for beginners.

          Should be improved a little by adding the target of targetable skills next to the name.

          Also alternative, add the name on the projectile and the head of the caster next to the name, for AoE spells on the centre of the AoE and for instant casts on the target. Should be more helpful that way IMO.
