  • [Suggestion] Overall DPS stat

    This is an idea I've been toying around with for a bit: I think it would be nice if there were a singular statistic that would show a heroes' overall DPS when you factor in stuff like Attack Damage, Attack Speed, Critical Hits and other steroids (like Geminate Attack or the MKB proc chance). It's pretty common that a person gets into a situation where it's hard to decide which damage item to buy next (for example MKB vs Daedalus vs Butterfly vs Abyssal Blade), and this statistic would help a good deal.

    Example (numbers pulled out of my ass): your hero has 100 average attack damage and attacks twice per second, so overall DPS shows as 200. If you look at MKB in the store, it then shows that the DPS would increase from 200 to 350, while Daedalus would increase it to 400. This obviously doesn't factor in other advantages of MKB like the truestrike or the ministun, but I think it would make it easier for players to judge which item to buy.

    It could be implemented in the little fold-out menu that appears when you hold the mouse over your heroes' attack damage, so it wouldn't really be intrusive.


    Crude mock-up (again, numbers are inaccurate)

    You can get this easily by alt tabbing to calc or an excel spreadsheet. While I think this is interesting and all, Im not a fan of dumbing down the game by delivering every aspect of the game to the players' screen. Its a not a console game.

      Showing more information is dumbing the game down tbqh.
      You shouldn't be able to see your HP, you should just alt-tab and go to calc to figure out how much damage you've taken.
      You shouldn't be able to see your mana, you should just alt-tab and go to calc to figure out how much mana you have.
      You shouldn't be able to see your gold, you should just alt-tab and go to calc to figure out how much gold you've earned.
      etc

          Way to formulate an argument, extrapolating is always the solution. Anyway, seen suggestions on the same direction before and apparently devs agree with me, so kepp QQing.
