    Whats the difference between the announcer nagging you to look at your ancient
    as opposed to the announcer nagging you that an enemy is dying?

    A: Youre being nagged 80% of the time as opposed to 5% on the ancient.
    I don't get what you mean. Having this will make you evaluate situation better.
    If you don't have an intelligent reply for me, don't bother I will shred your non sense to pieces.

      Announcer doesnt announce that your ancient has low hp either but just that its under attack so....
      Why would you want to add a feature thats for lazy people. If its announced you should click back to check what's going on

        It has nothing to do with being lazy, when you are about to make a kill and you have to def at the same time, thats where its useful. Fck the kill go def.

          On what basis do you allow changes, based on some really old engine limits or other already really old arbitrary choices? I genuinely hope Dota2 will fight the engine limits that are present with Warcraft 3 and the Dota1

          We cannot see enemy manabar, why can we see our allies mana? More communication and ally clicking required there!
          On the same logic, why we are allowed to see enemy healthbar and own healthbar, its part of the skill to click enemies constantly to see what HP are they at.
          How about that we cannot even click enemies, so it would be even more skill based as we would have to evaluate enemies approx. hp after harassing based on your damage and average taken damage after armor reduction/block?
          Then comes the minimap, that really affects the gameplay, why is that even allowed in the first place, it would require a lot of skill to be constantly watching all over the map to look at possible enemies passing by the ward.

          Yeah, you do sound that silly. Every single thing that can affect gameplay, for better or worse, you are automatically against it because Dota1 and <insert some irrelevant reasons from game engine that came out ten years ago>

          On-topic: Why not, this is a positive change for sure. Possibly changes gameplay, maybe, but definitely towards better.

            As of now its gives you the choice to look back at your ancient when its announced to see its hp or proceed with your kill.

              Depends, sometimes, people don't notice when their own base is being attacked in a really close late, late, late-game encounter. This would just remove that aspect of the game. I don't necessarily support his idea.

                For other things it's definitely a big No No. But Since the whole game technically is about taking down the opponent's ancient, the ancient's hp bar should be significant for the team to notice. It does indeed affect gameplay; moving your screen back to your ancient in the middle of your actions, but it's necessary.

                The reason why it shows enemy hero hp bars because it's essential, unlike mana. It's ok if the bar doesnt show for ancient being under attack, but it's essential when it's actually going low.

                  Removing shitty aspects of the game can't be bad. If you ancient is going down fast you should at least know.

                    You should be aware that its being attacked: Announcer
                    You should be aware of its current health and how many are attacking it: Map Awareness

                    Why cant people understand the skill involved in map awareness?

                    And the Mana bar issue was addressed long ago in another thread.
                    The reason it shows your allies is to encourage and help more team plays, and ally communication.
                    If youre in a teamfight and you see skeleton king has a low mana bar under his health,
                    then you go in and kill him because the information is readily available to you.
                    If youre in a teamfight, you have a small window to check SKs mana by clicking him,
                    doing so risks your hero. Again, Map awareness.

                    HAVING PROBLEMS WITH THE MATCHMAKING? MUTE SYSTEM? THINKING EVERYBODY IS INFERIOR TO YOU?

                        So,basically u're saying that Map awareness is being able to check SKs(or any other hero) mana by clicking him in teamfight?

                        Sir,step away from this thread please.

                          Well you should be checking it yourself anyways rather than have a mana bars for the enemy team which makes it much easier to know when to engage in a fight or not.

                            Im saying YOU NEED INFORMATION ON THE BATTLE, YOU NEED TO BE AWARE,
                            CLICKING HIM MAKES YOU AWARE OF HIS STATUS, HIS ITEMS, HIS MANA.

                            Damn i broke my voice shouting.
                            Now thats over, how about a little contribution to the thread instead of
                            being a nitpicking prick.
