Repicking should revert to a previously selected hero

  • Repicking should revert to a previously selected hero

    Just a minor thing.

    Repro steps to explain the minor issue:

    1. Select any hero, but do not pick him
    2. Press the random button, thus picking another hero
    3. Repick
    4. Instantly press pick button again

    Result: You will get the same hero as you randomed (also there's a minor bug where the previous hero is greyed out at the top even though youre viewing the randomed one)

    Expected result: You will pick the hero you selected from the start

    Explanation: It's pointless to go back to the hero that you just repicked from; why would you want to pick him if you repicked? It's more logical to go to the hero that you were considering from the start.

        Not the same problem. My point is that it shouldnt keep the randomed hero highlighted, because you're never gonna want to pick him since you just repicked him.

        The game which lead me to start this thread was one where I was gonna play WD because we needed a babysitter, I thought I'd random to see if I could save some money by getting a babysitter. Upon randoming Weaver I repicked because that was a horrible choice, and since WD was still the hero grayed out at the top I clicked the pick button. However, the picking screen hadn't gone back to WD after the repick, and before I realized I had picked Weaver, thus ruining the game.

        TL;DR, It was not an issue of accidentaly repicking and picking, but that the UI worked falsely.

          Hardly repick so I don't know, but good observation and I agree it should be fixed.
