    I am not sure, I should check the settings, may be enable/disable subtitles has any impact of it

    It is already enabled, if I am not mistaken. If I'm not, I have no idea what could have happened to you.

    Also, the pictures are quite intuitive (let's give Valve the deserved praise on part of hero redesigns), and, well, you can quickly click and read the hero name if it's that difficult. I am not sure about the ban boxes, but the picks should have this feature.

    [Suggestion] Add Hero Name tooltips

    Please add tooltips to show the Hero name when moved mouse over the hero selection in CM mode and Game Hud. Just like tooltip shown in the hero selection.

    I played my first CM mode last night. Since I am new to dota2, I had difficulties identifying the hero in the pick/ban boxes. I struggled a little bit to pick the hero, picked the hero at last. Its not just me but the one more guy in dires team also had the same problem. In fact he did not even picked the hero after waiting 4-5 minutes he picked the hero and we resumed the game.

    Well, I just explained the scenario how people are finding it difficult to identify the heroes. Hope
