  • [Suggestion] "Jump to action" feature

    Hello everyone, sorry if this has been suggested already, but a quick search did not reveal anything, nor did skimming through the first 5 pages of this forum.

    How many times have you missed First blood or kills in general because you were focusing on a different lane? Watching trilane vs trilane is fun and intense, but sometimes kills and ganks happen on other lanes and we are too busy to notice it on the minimap for whatever reason. I propose a spectator-only "jump to action" feature similar to the one in HoN.

    Basically whenever a hero drops too low or takes too much damage in a small amount of time a small icon appears right below his/her portrait (the size can be just as small as the buyback indicator, but with a different graphic ofc) and clicking it or pressing the corresponding shortcut centers the camera on said hero. This way spectators and casters can still watch the place where action is the most likely to occur , but still not miss out on random kills elsewhere.
