  • [Suggestion] Gold Graph Area

    First time posting, I'm not sure if this belongs here, but my suggestion is to show the distribution of each team's gold/exp through displaying each player's stats using areas under the graphs.

    In this way we can see each hero's contribution to the gold/ exp graph, as a team's lead in gold/exp is bias depending on the distribution. By displaying the distribution of the gold/exp it can better help us better judge how well the teams are really doing. ie: If a team's source of gold is coming from non-farm oriented heroes, we can tell by comparing the sizes underneath the gold graph. When the supposedly farmer regains their farm, we can visualize the transition.

    As well, as representing each player using their respective colours, I think it would be better to stack each player from lowest to highest (lowest being at the peak of each graph). Because each graph is much wider on the horizontal axis, lower values would be much thinner in area if measured using a wide base. The distribution would be the same whether it goes from lowest-to-highest, or highest-to-lowest, but I think using L-to-H we can even see the contributions of non-farm oriented heroes towards the later parts of the game.
