  • [Suggestion] Hero names on healthbars

    Hello. I'm new to mobas and dota2 but I'm not new to e-sports. I've been playing competitive games since I was just a little child.

    Being new to dota2 and mobas there is a lot I have to learn about heroes, and what would help me a lot would be the option to turn on hero names in health bars. You know the little health bar above players where you have the option to turn on their names but not the hero name which I find odd since everyone I've heard is talking about players with the hero names.

    Since everyone seems to use the hero names it's hard for me to understand quickly who they're talking about since I don't know the looks of every hero yet.

    I just find it odd that this feature does not exist and even my friends was sure it did exist. But I've looked through the options and googled about it and have come to the conclusion that it doesn't.

    So what do you guys think? Is this a feature that would ruin the game in any way or just help newcomers like me to get into the game faster?

    I think this is a great suggestion for newcomers, but I think before they can add this feature, you already probably won't need it anymore, but it will certainly help other newcomers a lot.

      Yea that might be true, but I do still think that some might want to use that feature even if you do know the looks of the heroes. But however even if I don't need it at that time it sure will help other newcomers as you said!
