  • Make AOE target cursor instantaneous

    Title says it all. Please make the circle appear instantly. What's the point of delaying it?
    All it does is give burden to players. Aiming accurately is kinda hard since the circle target appears a little bit later. Why not make the cursor appear right after the spell is pressed?

      It will make the game much more simple. If you want an instant AOE cursor switch to LoL a.k.a. easy mode of DotA

        How does removing the delay make the game "much more simple"? Your post is rather stupid IMO.

          ^Umad or something?

          What I'm trying to say is to simply remove the delay between changing the AoE target cursor to a circle.

          In warcraft3, AOE cursors switch instantly from target to circle without having delays, but in dota2 there is this slight delay which does not help at all at targeting fast.

          So was that supposed to be connected with LoL? Next time, try analyzing first before talking about your "Go switch to LoL" type of shit.

              I don't really get what you even mean. And seeing the responses from others I think they have the same problem.

                I don't get it either.

                  I honestly never noticed any delay. Maybe because I'm used to it and don't really look for it when casting.

                  But if there is a delay, it should be removed. Not even dota purists could argue since as already mentioned, this delay did not exist in Wc3 (a.k.a. their bible).

                    I've noticed slight delay before when I was first starting, now I don't so much
