  • [Suggestions] Overlooked but important things.

    Ok, so I've played only 7 hours of DOTA 2 but I have a total of 1k hours in DotA and HoN so I noticed a few things that need to be added as soon as possible. Other that the things below I'm really enjoying the game.

    1. Add option(on/off) for "always show health bars".

    You know, like in DotA and HoN. By holding Alt you will show the health bars. I think this is an essential DotA thing and it need to be in the game. Also all those health bars just clutter the screen.

    2. Mouse cursor needs to change completely when you press A(attack).

    I cannot believe that the current icon is the same but with a red outline and with a little arrow. It needs to change completely.

    Things that should be added eventually.

    1. "Show experience and damage" option.
    2. Different death animations when creep is killed by hero or non-hero unit.

    Drawing on the mini-map while holding Ctl also moves the camera around.

      I agree with what you said.

      (But currently the main "little thing" that's driving me crazy is that I can't stop the hero responses for issuing commands. When I play, I'm almost always issues move orders, and so the damn hero never shuts up. I know this is kind of off topic - I just struggle to concentrate on any other part of dota while this problem exists. Sorry.)
