  • [Suggestion] Hover over hero name/title to show the alternate. Click to toggle.

    When I was getting into Dota 2, I had trouble with names and titles that other players would use. Some are obvious like Clinkz being the "Bone Fletcher" but others like Darkterror/Faceless Void, Atropos/Bane, Barathrum/Spirit Breaker aren't so apparent.

    This is a simple suggestion. Mousing over a hero's name/title above their portrait should switch in the alternate, and clicking it should toggle it to that.
    For example, if I hover over Lifestealer's title or portrait, it switches N'aix in place of it. Clicking it would leave that name there.

    Like the suggestion I was reading that inspired this, it helps new players with learning the names and titles of heroes. It also adds a smidgen of customization to the interface, perhaps you prefer Balanar over Night Stalker? This lets you set it.
