  • Chat log removed? For useless custom build button?

    The chat log button seems to have been replaced with the custom build button, which has zero interactivity at all.

    Functionality lost: 1) "You didn't call mid missing!" "Yes I did, check log." "Oh, sorry." 2) Rosh 24:38

    Functionality gained: ¯\(°_o)/¯

    I guess you fiddle with a text file somewhere to add hero builds which can then be toggled via the custom build button? Well whatever, that's great and all. It seems you already have a way to do this in the "recommended items" pane.

    Can I have the chat log back now?

    Apparently Timbersaw has no custom builds available, so "custom build" pane appears useless with him.

    I also wasn't aware that editing the default build finally, finally has a purpose.

    I still want the chat log button back.

        You can press enter to bring up the chat "log" and use the arrow keys to scroll through.
        AFAIK, by default they do not have custom builds for heroes unless you subscribe to them via Although while I was trying out a draft of my Disruptor build I noticed a few rated guides available to select.

            Build button is useless to me, I don't use it.
            However I was using the chat button often, and I'd like to have it back.
            Why the hell did they even remove it is beyond me.
            I don't want to hit Enter to see what others have typed...pff
