  • Buff/Debuff Duration Numbers/Larger Icons

    Sorry if this is a repost of something already posted, I tried my best to use search before posting this.

    It is hard for me to tell what duration of buffs and debuffs on me are at.

    Here are some options I suggest adding:

    Buff/Debuff timer - Countdown clock in seconds
    Buff/Debuff size - I would appreciate if they could be made bigger or more noticeable but the option should be there to make them either Small Medium Large or just have a slider that shows their size.

    Maybe just some general interface placement and size options.

      In frst dota they are blinking, and its was normal to understand when buf/debff are ending.
      Now you need to strain your eyes and explain approximately how much left.
      +1 , i for countdown clock and selectable size of bff/dff icons

        More importantly is to know when enemies buffs will end, currently they reset every time when the buffed unit enters the fog of war, which makes it impossible to tell how much longer this e.g. Haste rune will last on a particular unit.

        In Warcraft 3, buffs which are about to expire within 10 seconds are blinking in a units statusbar.

            WC3 buffs/debuffs are a bit little but easily noticeable (to me at least) due to the black background.
