  • [Suggestion] Clicking enemy portrait on top hero bar shows their skills (not levels)

    Currently, you can click on an enemy hero as long as they are visible to see their items, skills, and level. My suggestion involves being able to click their portrait on the top bar anytime to view their skill descriptions ONLY. Right now you can click your allies to see their items, gold, skill/levels, etc.

    To summarize, when I click an enemy's picture...

    I want to see:
    -Their skills (eg. How much damage does Lina's ult do at level 2? Level 3? What's the cooldown?
    -Hero Level I guess is ok cause you can get that from the scoreboard anyway...

    -Their items - this will be done if I can physically see them on the map
    -What level their skills are - you can never do this anyway
    -Buffs (unless I can see them on my map I suppose)

    This will be useful for new players to be able to know what kind of skills the enemy possesses, but will leave the mid-level and meta virtually unchanged because you know everyone's skills anyway. Could also lead to less rage (eg. If I just saw Lina use her ult, and I'm under the impression the cooldown is around 2 minutes. A minute later, she ults me. I can click on her portrait and see that the cooldown is a minute and realize I'm a dumbass.)
