  • [Suggestion] Proximity Buff Icons

    I was watching a game and saw a pugna put down his ward and noticed the debuff on some enemy heroes. I was thinking it would be cool to have the border which is usually a timer/countdown and have it be filled relative to the distance away from the debuff based on the total distance.

    For instance, if you are at the very edge of the buff/debuff the outer edge is empty, and if you are standing on top of the ward (ex.) the border is full.

    I spose this would potentially be a balance issue because it would give you a gague of where something is, but that being said, maybe only use this when you can see the object emiting the buff.

    Examples of this would be pugnas ward, necrolites heart stopper aura, omni's degen, assault curras armor.

    I think it would help give a good sence of how big auras are and how close you are to escaping them. You could even make this a very subtle grey over the black/green already on the icons.
