    Except for the fact that the Hero Icon is bugged. Sometimes it shows my hero but it is on it's way to someone else.

    Honestly, I'd prefer I button for "resume delivery" over a simple chat ping. But either is preferable to the current system :-(

    Just one line of text would be visible, top 3 are just examples

    Added to Graphical Summary of HUD/UI Requests

    I think that chat messages are a bit outdated and easily clogs it up, an icon over the inventory saying "Delivering/retrieving/returning/going to playername (heroname)/pool/secretshop/unknown location"
    So that you would have an icon above your inventory always telling you what the courier is up to and if you hover over it with your mouse you'd get detailed information of what it's doing.

    +1 Very Great idea could help people stop changing the order

    can we interrupt courier when it in transit?
    Yup, the controls will be as they are right now. But it will have the big debuff and maybe even an orange outline on the courier to show you that it's in transit.

    The paths it will take should only be shown when you have the courier selected, on the Minimap.

    The path it takes should be tinted with the colour of the hero that issued the command.

    Any commands given to the courier while it is performing a delivery should need a double click confirmation that you will interrupt another players command, for the rare instance when your order is URGENT. First click on deliver would give a yellow warning message, something like "The courier is currently being used by _playername_hero. This will interrupt their delivery."

    I agree, the courier system can be a pain without an organized (preferably voicechatting) team, and especially confusing to newer players who are either constantly stealing the courier off their allies or possibly just never getting their items at all.

    Something I do hope for. I was bottle crowing in mid just the other day only to have the courier not bring back my bottle for several minutes. It was more frustrating when the bottle got returned to my stash while I was waiting for it. As a carry in mid whose early farm goes straight towards an early bottle, it becomes an extremely useless item when people interrupt the courier to fly out a tango, or better yet, 1 iron branch and a magic wand recipe. FLY THAT STUFF OUT WHEN YOU HAVE MORE ITEMS PURCHASED THAN YOU HAVE INVENTORY SLOTS!!!! -_- /rant
