  • Hero Selection Period

    Hey guys a few suggestions for the hero selection period. some people take more time than others to chose heros, i think the game time should be displayed during hero selection so you can see when the creeps spawn. also the hero selection screen should be minimizeable so you can see the map and what lanes current heros are going into.

    This is kind of a hard one, because you can still watch the minimap to see where your team is laning and when the creeps spawn. I think being able to tab out of the pick screen somehow might be a little convenient in some very limited circumstances, but that is outweighed by the fact that noobs will probably tab out of the pick screen and not know how to get back. If anything, the option to have the pick screen minimizable could be put in the settings somewhere, but it really is not that important since, like I said, you can just use the minimap for all practical purposes.

      agreed you can use the minimap, but tabing out of hero selection would be a great feature, also the game timer should be enabled so you know when creeps are spawning
