  • Add skill preview video to the learn tab

    I thought it would be helpful to put short clips of the animations of each skill on the learn tab. It would be easier to learn to identify player specific casts and make the mental connection between the spell info and the spell animation.

    Made a thread about this. Anyways, I support this.

      This might be a lot of work, but it would be really cool. Plus, it's nice being able to check out important animations before learning what spells do the hard way in game.
      Change has kept DotA alive, evolving, and improving since 2002. And now DotA has an entire new engine at it's disposal, with infinite new capabilities.

      So why are there so many DotA fundamentalists/conservatives that oppose new features, options, and information?

      Embrace the change.

        Maybe many of you are familiarized with DotaCinema, it's the best example of this, and I'm sure that other AOS game has already implemented, though I can't remember which one.

        Here's a link:

        Sunsfan has worked on almost every hero since DotA 2 international came out from Valve.

        In the other hand, it would be really interesting to have a real game recreation (enclosed in a box) of the skill instead of the old .avi or .mp4 formats.
