  • [Suggestion] Skills + Ultimate icons on top

    There is a small green, blue, or grey dot on top, right below the hero icon. If we have that icon for ultimate skill, then why don't we make it for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd skills?

    Green - Active with mana
    Blue - Active but not enough mana
    Grey - Inactive, skill is cooling down
    White - Active, passive skill

    Since most players already know what are their allies' skills, they don't have to click on them to check whether their allies' skills are still under cool down.

    Cons: Some players might found this icons are too annoying if there is a long line of dots.
    Solution: We can make it as OPTIONAL in game settings.

    it's hard enough already to keep track of the ultimate counters on the top of the screen and the scoreboard.
    i find it highly unlikely that anybody would benefit of that feature.

    i also think that things like that should be part of the common game sense:
    checking allied mana,
    checking allied skillbuild,
    checking allied cooldown,
    knowning the cooldowns more or less by heart

    the markers for ultimates are ok, since it is much harder to get "into the rhythm" of a 100 sec cd spell than that of a 10 sec cd spell.

      I don't feel hard to keep track of the ultimate counter/icon on top because I am using ''19 monitor and that's why I suggest it to be optional(players can switch it to ultimate/display all) because I know there are a lot of players who play Dota 2 on ''14 laptop.

      If it is a thing which is common game sense, then why ultimate is not a part of common game sense?
      Also, I can say the ultimate counters on top are annoying, am I right?
      And, IMO, ultimate and skills are same. Both will be used to win the game.
