  • CANT UPGRADE skill by just clicking the small pic

    before recent update, it was always possible to upgrade an ability by clicking on its pic, rather then having a short key or clicking the + mark over it. now its not working. it may seem something very useless but many people have not the reflexes to have a short key for skill upgrade. it was easy to click the pic as compared to now, when we have to click the + mark precisely. please look into it.

    That's not a bug, it's the intended behavior.

    If you want to level up your skills you have the following options:

    - Click on the '+' above the skill icon
    - Use the 'Learn Ability' hotkey (top left in advanced hotkeys) and then either click on the icon (since this is what you like to do) or use an ability hotkey
    - Use ctrl+ability_hotkey

    Sorry for your loss.

    Reasons why it was fixed:
    - Trying to announce abilities with a spare level up point would instead level up the skill
    - Trying to cast by clicking would instead level up the ability when you had a point to spend

    Also it was introduced in a random update as a sideeffect to other changes for the UI. No changelog mentioned that you should be able to level up abilities via a simple mouse click (with none or any keyboard modifiers).

      Why do I openly want to murder OP?! Or should I say Valve devs for catering to such - how to say it bluntly - skill ceiling demands?!
