  • Top Bar - Permit Hero Selection for Enemies

    Often times when I want to examine my allies items, hp and mp, level, cooldowns and position exactly I will click on their hero icon at the top part of the HUD. This saves me the time of having to move my camera onto them as I can just click their icon than mine to go back (or space bar which is what I have it assigned to). At the moment, clicking the enemy hero icons do nothing.

    I think it should be possible to use this feature to centre and select enemy heroes only if they are visible to you on the mini-map. This will make it more convenient to examine an enemy hero that goes into your mini-map vision for perhaps a second or two. Some example circumstances is when invisibility breaks and they reapply it when you have ward vision, when a small narrow path of vision examines them in the jungle for a small second, etc. Normally, you will have to move your camera onto their position then click them, meaning you lose time in selecting them.

    Although, this would mean checking mana points of enemy heroes would be easier as you just cycle through using the hero icons on the HUD. This could be of a minor benefit to Magina's Mana Void, though one may argue it could be faster to click heroes on the main screen instead of the top-bar.

    What are your thoughts?

      This is the reason I am against this suggestion. Implementing this wouldn't just make your camera movement more intuitive (what is good), it could enable unfair advantages.
      If you can't click the level 16 Riki in time, it's your fault.

      I know it's a bit off topic, but I rather would like to be able to see my allies HP bars on the top after pressing a hotkey. I guess both our wishes will be unheard because of balancings sake
