  • [Suggestion] RandomDraft like DotA 1

    Imagine the -rd dota 2 mode like this.
    random draft.jpg

    Is that a solid suggestion?
    Is there hope on this?

    how can you be arsed to care about this?

      because it was a great visual aspect of the draft mode. one of the reasons (apart from the tactical and semirandom drafting itself) for being my personal favorite mode.
      Make sure to read the Forum Rules as well as the stickied Threads of the Forum Section you are posting in.

        I adore this too, however it just seems like something that hasn't been implemented yet. I'm sure valve will get around to that once the functionality of all modes is finished.

          I would put money on them using a UI screen for picking heroes (although maybe not the same as the one they have now) over an ingame display like this for several reasons:

          1- drastic reduction in loading time as all hero models do not have to be loaded into memory for the sake of the draft.
          2- the ability to make a much clearer display then an ingame equiviliant.
          3- the ability to add the extra information they have compiled for heroes to the UI screen.

              Its very important.

                Is circle of heroes going to be implemented? I miss it


                • #9

                  RD right now is terrible for the first picker, you can't even check all the heroes in 20 seconds. The good old hero-circle would solve this.

                    +1 we need the CIRCLE of heroes.

And its not like he's wielding a wooden penis (one can easily make a penis shaped staff out of wooden branch and there are no arguments why it could not be done). The Acorn helmet is actually VERY fitting since it's natural shape is used. Also it is used for it's quality to withstand blows.
                    Wow, amazing insight.

                        +1 The circle of heroes was awsome but I´d like to point out some things:

                        1 - The circle of heroes was a little confusing sometimes, so if implemented should be optional with a clicking button to change to the cards view
                        2 - On dota 1 when you selected your heroe it instantly was ready to play, so some people started the game before others later. If implemented on Dota 2 release the heroes all at the same time after all players finish picking.
                        3 - Make an animation of them being happy for being selected and of them walking to the center of the ring.

                          i love your first 3 points, the fourth being offtopic so i dont care

                          sometimes when I load last into the game and at the same moment i hear "Your turn to pick" i get so panicked, trying to make the right decision in only 20secs, while everybody else has enough time to think.

                            I really missed this instead of scrolling or clicking grid mode xD

                            if i have time I will make a similar pic like that just for you xD
