  • Bring back dota 1 buttons

    Don't get me wrong, hotkeys are great, but I am a dota player with only 1 hand (believe me or not, I don't really care), so I can't actually use hotkeys in the majority of situations. I don't know if this will be implemented or not, but from dota 1, there were actually 'icons' for things like attack, hold, stop and move. These icons allowed me to deny creeps/towers and made it possible for me to play better against others. These don't appear to be implemented in dota 2 (and I'm unsure if they will be).
    As for the topic of a gaming mouse, I will get one, but consider 4 skills amongst the rest of the hotkeys and there's just not enough buttons.

    So my suggestion: bring back the attack, move, hold and stop icons. Oh and also the little ping icon next to the minimap.

    For those who disagree with me and say they are clunky and not required, perhaps these could be toggleable?

    Appologies if this is in the wrong forum or is this has been suggested or will be implemented later (I understand that this is still beta)

    EDIT: While I appreciate suggestions for gaming mice, this is a suggestion thread, try to stay on topic guys! If you support the suggestion in this thread, be sure to say so. Perhaps PM me if you have a good one mouse in mind (I'm left-handed fyi)!

    -->Could a mod put [suggestion] in the thread title if they see this and can do so? Thanks

    Should be a toglable feature, support.

      never thought i'd ever see a one hand man trying to play a Moba. personally i dont want the buttons on MY screen, and really, clicking to use skills and even general commands is really bad. BUT, since you're handicapped i'd have to say if its toggleable then whatever. What's your steamId if you dont mind me asking, i just dont have the confidence in your reaction times and would like to avoid matchmaking with you at all costs.

        I've no issues with that. I'm better than you think, but I do have my off days too.

        EDIT: Apparently valve staff say don't share your account details, so i've taken them down

          +1 support as long as it is just toggle-able.


          • #6
            This could be a toggeable option or you can bind them in your mouse too

              i was kinda half kidding :P, i tend to rage alot, but i try to keep it to a minimum and keep myself out of those situations. You're cool for being up front with it though, i can respect that.

                Thanks, I've had one hand for 12 years now, so I've more or less adapted to anything, but I thought this might help myself and others in a similar situation (I hope I don't sound selfish here)

                  also suggest a mouse with lots of extra thumb buttons

                  razer naga is a great choice, my friend plays one handed as well and has it setup for all the spells, hold, attack... etc. with the thumb num pad

                    Hah, I'd rather not avoid you as to actually see you play.

                      Thanks guys, but remember, that's not what this thread is about

                        I saw your picture on playdota some while ago, for the picture contest.

                        Should be toggleable, yep. They are already planning on implementing something for color blind people.. So why not this?
