  • please add the small hero icon on top left corner like wc3

    lets say you got 2 centaurs healing in fountain.

    after they are fully healed, you want to move the centaurs to your heroes.

    in wc3, you can easily do it by selecting the centaurs, then right click your hero icon on top left.

    but in dota 2, there is no simple way to do it.

    it makes the game extremely annoying when you need to micro your creeps.

      you dont always use control groups when you have over 5 summoned units which can be easily obtained by Helm of the Dominator Chen.

      if using control group is a must for all your units, then dota 2 is nothing but a failed game.

        In the options of DotA 2 there's the setting for Holding down Ctrl while issuing commands sends them to all units you control. Why not just enable that and whenever you want to issue commands to all of your units you just press the control key and issue a move / attack cmd or whatever other command you want. You don't even need to have your hero selected or on screen. That would be my recommendation.

        Edit: In regards to micro'ing the units if you're manually moving your mouse and clicking on portraits that is far from micro'ing effectively. Ctrl groups imo, and yes I have more than 5+ ctrl groups set up for Chen.

          lets say you got a centaur who is just fully healed in fountain and another centaur who is with chen.

          in addition, you have 2 dark troll warlords who are moving towards fountain, the distance between them is 4000.

          if you use ctrl to move the centaur to your hero.

          you have to then select each troll warlord and move them to fountain again which is real stupid.



          adding an icon is a perfect solution for all these multiple unit micro compared to the stupid ctrl control.

            i really like the top left portraits, because its really hard to tell how much hp each of your units have and sometimes when i have a ton i send 1 to base to heal and i completely forget about it till like 60 seconds later. and because its just way easier

            and if this doesnt get added there will be alot of accidental meepo deaths ><

              moved to hero hud.

              but in all honesty... if you play chen and you seriously tell us, that you are not willing to use control groups, then dota is the wrong game for you.

                I think that has already been brought up in the past. I would like to have those portraits too, especially when playing Meepo they are helpful.

                  What about the top portraits being targetable?

                    I am curious about what they are gonna do when Meepo is released. I've always relied on those hero boxes to some extend (checking health/mana and attacked status), especially while playing Meepo.

                        This. Just make the current portraits targetable and there should be no issue.

                              good point. Was in wc3 should be in dota 2 as well. Use portraits as a shortcut.
                              I used to use this function a lot in wc3 when I think about it. I found a way to not having to use it anymore, but...

                              Should add it again. Wont hurt I guess...
