  • About meepo's contrl

    I'm both Dota(2) player and StarCraft(2) player.Before new update come,I put forward some suggestions about hero control.

    First,when I select a group of units and use blink,whole of the group will blink to destination at the same time,in SC2.
    I suggest Dota2 add this function too,just need we players make one command then all the units in the selected group will use the same ability.(just like unified unit orders in game setting)
    For meepo,this function especially convenient,we can poof so easy.

    Second,in SC2,selected a group of units,if I hold down ability hotkey,I can continuous click the mouse to execute the ability several times,until all units CD.
    For meepo,select all meepo,holding down earthbind,then we can execute earthnbind for 4 times.Same for chen's pet.
    Very convenient too.

    This functions could be added in game setting,if someone don't like them,just turn it off.

      With Meepo's Poof this can be too unbalanced. You have to use the good old method. Poof -> Tab (Control Group Tab) -> Poof -> Tab -> Poof -> Tab -> Poof - Same for Earthbind. Plus there is no point to use all four Earthbind ability at once.

        No that'd make it too difficult to micro..
        It can be convenient in one perspective, but if let's say I want to individually poof certain meepo's (especially while all are selected in a group), it'll become particularly difficult if we don't use the traditional tab button.

          I don't think the unified unit orders would benefit meepo very much. Maybe a few rare occasions were you want everyone to poof, but where will they all poof to?

          I do like the idea of the ability hotkey but I'm not sure how it'd go down with Meepo. You need to use your mouse to target earthbind (Its like a skillshot spell) and if you're too busy trying to click the hero itself you run the risk of missing it anyway.

          Then again these are just my opinions, I have not played SC2 before and are not familiar with these features.

            This.

            I also play sc2 actively, so I can understand what the op means. But I don't think it'll benefit meepo like Tornado.20 points out.

                This is just my opinions. And I think this function don't increase poof any damages or others, it's just about convenient ,not balance

                  Set a hotkey to open it may works,just like unified unit orders,holding down CTRL will use the function,CTRL+poof = all poof.

                    I think this is doable by console, but tbh I find this useless, especially with Meepo, on the poof it could be awesome, but for the nets will be a real pain in the ass (select just one meepo to throw the net and after reselect the group?)... It's just not worth it, this can be easily done with tab and the whole poofing all the meepos on one location (or with dagger) can be done in less than 1.5 seconds even with the 5 meepos (Done it in WC3 DotA) so I really reccomend you to not to use this option unless you wanna be one of those useless meepos circling around this week :P

                    Oh btw, i think i didn't mentioned this but using unified actions on all meepos (including the original) destroys the dagger combo unless you make different groups, so another -1 for it :P
