  • Activation timer runes

    I propose to make HUD a bottle with a timer to activate the runes.

    UPD: 1. added new version number 3. (In version 3 was too lazy to fill out a bottle of rune)
    2. You can also add a timer for Aegis. Which will show how much time is left to him.

      and what would be a purpose of this?

      U see ur timer is low,so u hurry up to use the bottled rune,before the times runs out and rune is automatically used?
      U see my point there

      if rune went away,without being "used" on u,then we would need that timer.
      But since it automatically "buffs" u,timer is irelevant

        Here is an example. You stand at the mid. You take a rune regeneration. And it is logical to assume that if you do not need to use it, you will not use it. But for 15 seconds, you spend all your mana, and rejoice that the fleece is not used in vain

          Like aegis, I think there should be no timer.

            I don't like it. It would make it to easy to determine whether a rune is there or not.

              i think in dota you must always check the time and see when its going to be activated and use in the best oportunity (also appies for roshan respawn) just memorize the time

                  Uh, runes spawns every 2 mins from 00:00, you could still get a rune @ 1:55 and get the 2:00 rune. The countdown would tell that the rune fades @ 3:55 so I don't really understand how it would make easy determine if a rune is up or not.

                    Sort of agree on this point, but considering it's just the Bottle, I personally wouldn't mind all that much.

                    Obviously didn't think too much on the concept of this suggestion.

                      lol its not about making the game easier its about making it more challenging.... dont do this
                      REMOVE MUTE SYSTEM

                      And maybe start adding other heroes and fix the abandon system before you do different changes

                          or maybe just blur the color
                          is more awesome than give it number in it

                              if you dont like these timers, you should strike to have all android or any timing device disabled, i use my kindle fire to time runes and roshan, really easy 1 button, it beeps when its ready oO
                              i see all these old players who dont want new improvements, thats great cuz you can beat up noobs who havent put 1k hours into the game, but you need to realize without these noobs having fun, they wont stay, if they dont stay noone will pay, cuz we know your broke ass isnt going to contribute
