  • [Suggestion]Activate/Deactivate spells like Rot/Pulse Nova

    Hey Devs,

    Just a little something I've come across. Last night i was playing as Leshrac and my friend was playing as Pudge. I mentioned over voice chat how difficult it was to know if my ulti activated or not especially in team fights when I can't see anything happening and I'm unable to tell from the icon. He also stated Rot was extremely difficult to tell via the icon.

    So far the only ones I've noticed it on is the following.

    1. Pulse Nova
    2. Rot

    It might be a good idea to check any of the other spells that you can activate/deactivate.

      Seems that the toggle effect is kinda lame for now... It just seems strange. Sometimes you don't know if you already clicked it and it's activated or not...
      It's kinda having a lot of delay but only happens with those spells, and the icons don't let you tell the difference for sure.

        I think adding a sound will fix both. The pudge rot sound is very distinctive in dota 1 as is the pulse nova.
        Thanks for picking up Dota 2 valve guys!
