  • Viewing enemy build is now impossible.


    Now that talents are as important than items, it is imperative that we are able to effectively check what talent builds our opponents have selected. Previously (before talents) you just had to select an enemy at which point you could then view the enemy's build while still controlling your own hero.

    Now we have talents and the talent UI is severely lacking. Now to check an enemy's build you have to select the enemy and then hover the mouse over the talent tree to check what he has built the crucial point being there is no way you can still control your own hero while doing that.

    Surely it must be self evident that this is completely unworkable? Off the top of my head I can't think of an elegant solution to this. The decision to implement two completely separate sets of build customisation mechanics demands more of the UI than can be cleanly displayed. A short term fix would be to simply list the selected talent build in overlay text at the side of the screen somewhere when you have an enemy hero selected, which while not ideal is massively better than nothing.
