  • Hero Pick - Search and Control Interaction

    The search bar on the top right is incredibly helpful.. when you're in the scrolling card mode. If you hit control to get to the screen where all the heroes are laid out, the search bar darkens heroes that do not fit your query.

    Thing is, DotA's got a lot of heroes. A highlight at least would be helpful, or if the cards that don't fit your query would disappear that would be cool. Or even at the very least the ability to hit control and get back to the scrolling card mode if you simply just don't want to deal with that.

    heropick.jpg - This is what it looks like right now when you search for a hero. Notice how Bounty Hunter is lit up, but no more than the other heroes would be if the search bar was not being utilized. Additionally, if multiple heroes match your query, they are tough to hunt down. Sure, there's a scroll mode, but in that case why bother having a less-functional mode where they're laid out? And even if that's not convincing, why not at least allow the player to return to the scroll mode with the query already typed in? Or to address the issue in a different way, why is the highlight still on Alchemist, when he cannot be selected due to the search? Wouldn't it make more sense to automatically zone that highlight in on the first applicable pickable hero?

    Nothing too mindblowing here, just something I found irritating.
