  • [UI] Autocast animation

    It's animated, it distracts from the game. I don't really like nor dislike the other UI changes, but this one should be rethought. It's really annoying. The UI should only "distract" you, when there's information that has changed, not just because of some useless animation.
    I hope it gets changed.

      i personally dont like only one thing in new ui - that...thing on spells when it's off cooldown (like here on frost arrow, and btw it glowing like that every time you swith aura on and off, bug?)

        I really like it too but i t's too noisy, remove the really bright two things going around and just have it pulsing like it already does and it would be perfect.

        Also you have to activate Drow's aura (so it's got a green border) to not have it work for creeps, isn't that supposed to work the other way around?

            it currently bugged - it should be disabled by default when skilled, and when you "enable" creeps should get bonus damage. But now it enabled by default and disabled in "turned on" state.

              I don't like it either but that's something I can get used to. It's useful, because you notice quite fast, i.e. better when your skills go off cooldown.
              The Auto-Cast thing however is really a problem because it distracts, so I have to start to ignore it, which makes the other animations useless. It's okay when it's animated, but it's too distracting, it needs to be more decent.

                Seems like soemthing that could be turned off, like UI animation toggle or something.

                I like it being there, but I can see why it can bother people too

                  Oh sweet! I was hoping they'd eventually make the auto-cast boarder more like the original

                  that looks much better

                    Did you try that out in a game?
                    Try playing OD with this and you'll notice why I complain.

                      Too distracting, +1
                      I wouldn't mind if it were animated like that when you turn autocast on for the first second and even the first second after respawning but this nonstop merrygoround on the hud is simply a no-go.

                        That's what it's supposed to look like, I like it. Plus it only does it when auto-cast is turned on which is probably only half the time.

                        Does playing obsidian in war3 bother you the same way? Maybe you could argue it's brighter in Dota 2 but I have no problem with it.

                          If you play OD, it's the entire game (40+ minutes)

                          I don't play auto cast heroes in war3, also the effect is way more decent there because it's not right in the middle of the screen (the button is also only 1/9th of the size).
