  • Suggestion for Directed Mode Camera AI

    I think the viewer would never miss any action if the camera would always follow/jump to whatever is currently losing the most hitpoints.

    I am not completely satisfied with the current AI of the camera because it sometimes is following a hero by itself (usually after it is almost ganked and killed) and misses a kill that is sometimes even very near the hero being followed.

    This is a very interesting idea, but like anything else, its pros come mirrored by downsides. The camera is definitely weird sometimes following things it shouldn't be, but this would likely cause the same problem albeit at different times. Sort of null on this.

      I just watched a game using directed camera and missed watching Lich and Warlock ulty refresher ulty because middle tower was being attacked.

      The algorithm needs work.

        I just watched a game using directed camera and missed fountain camping action because Pudge bought back and the camera went to him on the other side of the map.

        Seriously, whatever the script or guideline is, give it to me. I'll make something better than this level of bad quality camera focus starting with the #1 priority going to hero hp loss. Sound bad?
