  • [Suggestion] Way to Share Controlled Units w/ Allies

    I looked around and this seems to be missing. I think the function is pretty important.

    Sharing Heroes:
    • Helpful for coaching new players at times.
    • Great for if someone needs to go AFK for a short time. We all have lives.

    Sharing Other Units:
    • If you end up picking Chen, but can't micro, you can have someone else just take your neutrals.
    • In the same train of thought, Helm of the Dominator is often very strong on heroes who cannot really manage the neutral. Phantom Assassin and Nightstalker come to mind.
    • Possibly if you have extraordinarily bad control, you can allow allies to move summons around.

    All in all, this was something present in WC3, and I don't really see why we shouldn't have it in Dota 2. Sharing units had more applications than just chicken/crow.

    I'd like the idea if it was used in a sort of coaching practice match however if you check out some SC2 games it creates a huge tactical advantage when controlling a large number of units(creeps from chen in this case) that some would find to be unfair and you would hear people raging on the forums about daily. Controlling a player flagged as afk or DC would be very helpful and I think very reasonable.

      I dunno, I feel like in the case of Chen it just allows the hero to be played effectively even if you can't micro. You are still putting points into Holy Persuasion to get the benefits.
