  • HP & Mana regen - needed time calculator

    I think it would make it easier - especially for new players - to manage their HP/mana regen numbers if there was an option to show the time that's left for the mana/hp to regen.

    What I mean is for the total HP information you get to be like: "400/2280 hp, regen: 4hp/second, time until full HP: 470 seconds". Same goes for mana. It could also be very good if after pointing the mouse cursor at a certain point on the HP/mana bar, it would show the time needed for your HP/mana to reach that point; in case, for example, I wanna check how long it will take me to have enough hp for surviving a Sniper ultimate.

    What are the benefits? Even tho most skilled players can do good mental math, and regen numbers are really easy to calculate, it would be easier to just see the number, especially during the laning/harrass stage when you're totally focused on what you're doing and you don't have the time to do mental math. Why is this information so importand? Well, good players are good with regen anyway, so it's not really needed for them, but newbies are often really bad with regen, so providing them an information that very clearly shows them the implications of their current regen powers would be very helpful.

    Having this in their UI could annoy some people, so it might be good to allow to turn it off, but in general - it would probably be a welcome addition to the interface.
