    Yeah I understand smoothing it out as a steady flow won't work as spells are in 1 second increments/ticks. Case closed. Nothing can be done about this.

    However, the white part in the HP, after finally noticing it (lol); people in this thread are saying they either don't like it or don't want it at all. So I feel this needs to be rectified in someway because whatever the solution is, to me how it currently looks just feels tacky. I don't know what it is, something about it just doesn't look right. I'm trying my best to get used to how it currently looks, but so far I've had no luck. It really changes my feel of the game too. This is my opinion though.

      JUST BECAUSE ITS DOT DOESNT MEAN IT CANT LERP

      Lerping is just VISUAL effect that smooths the value change. Say Veno's poison tick does 50dmg and so in certain point it ticks and changes your hp say from 500 to 450 (theory). Your hp bar might say you have 486 in that split second when your hp will already be set to 450 (so that further dmg calculates without problems). Lerping will make EFFECT only and only for your eyes. It wont hurt mechanics.

      It wont work with Lion's mana drain, ofc. But it doesn't mean it you can't apply it to other things. Thread isn't only about that one particular skill you mentioned Warchamp.

        Lerping is a visual effect that shows how much has changed in a single tick. The original discussion here was how often the ticks were for some spells. It's two totally different things.

          changing it does however affect gameplay a bit, when doing dmg in intervals it's easier to get the last hit on a creep then when it's all divided fluently.

            Ok I just played again last night and looked for the white square effect.

            It is present when heroes take damage, however it is not present when creeps/buildings take damage.

            I think this is the reason why some of us may have been unsure as to whether it happened or not.

              Yeap CGar, I finally noticed in on the heroes. Maybe the speed at which the white dissapears can slow down? or I need to double check again but is the white dissaspearing in a flash or is it shrinking down? If it's in a flash this may be the reason it doesn't seem visually appealing. It should shrink down in my opinion.

                I'm actually ok with the way it is right now, but a little slower wouldn't be too bad I guess. I do think however it would be a nice touch on creeps/buildings.

                    I have no idea what your talking about. This thread is about a complete different subject. Please go to one of the million threads there are about it already.
