  • Hero swap possibility

    Hi, I was reading a thread written by VirJil who pointed out that teams should have the option to swap heroes.

    I think it is really important to add this feature however- If you have a PRO guy in your team - it's too easy for him to random, get the extra gold and ask one of his team mate to pick his favorite hero. A smart idea would be if I decide to random then swap - my extra gold should be cancelled.

    i dont believe any developer would be stupid enough to let someone keep the gold from a random after a swap.

      Haha. You are right... well it was the case with Heroes of Newerth until they decided to completely cancel the "extra" gold amount you would get after random-ing.

        well thats S2. not exactly renowned for their smarts. though with the new dashboard/hero picker/card/wheel I am kinda losing faith in Valve as well. Personally I would make Swaps only available in SD, CM, and RD, and eventually AR if it ever makes it to Match Making.


        • #5
          Swaps are 100% necessary for SD, RD, and AR, as they play an essential role in mitigating the damage if you get heroes you hate/can't play, but ensuring that people can't swap to abuse gold gain seems fine by me.

            I'm OK with swaps for SD - RD - AR. It is quite logical if you think about it. But for AP - nah. Its just wrong


            • #7
              Agreed. SD and AR especially without Swap is just plain dumb.

                Now we just have to wait for Valve to do their next move
