    Can you make it so that we can see which hero other people have picked by hovering the mouse over the hero's image on the top part of the screen, rather than having to click on the image which sometimes doesn't work and does not show you which hero is which.

    just very intuitive things...

    I agree, not only is mouse over on the hero selection is not good enough. But, the enemy team MUST have names beneath them, for those of us who do not want to memorize hero icons.
    These appear to be small quick fixes that would decrease the learning curve of the game and allow for more competitive, fun matches.
    I also posted a thread suggesting that hero names should be visible at all times not just upon mouse over, which is similar to your suggestion of enemy hero names being visible upon selection.

      For example:

      For example, see the picture below.
      The only way I can know who my allies/enemies heroes are if I:
      1) Recognize the icons or
      2) Click on each one.

      It would be great if it said the heros names above or below the players name,

      Thanks!

        Of all the measures Valve has taken to make this game more new-player-friendly, I can't believe this isn't one of them.
        I remember my first couple weeks playing D2 I spent half my hero-picking time trying to figure out who the hell those icons were.

        At the VERY least make the name come up when you mouseover. I'm sure everyone can support this.

            Exactly the kind of attitude that drives people away and also completely moronic... the icons have changed so even if you are a seasoned dota player you still have to learn each and every icon.


            I agree with OP, this is such an annoying feature and seems so easy to fix.

              took me like 1-2 days to remember them all and most of them are pretty obvious who they are. But +1 anyway

                  I've been thinking the same for quite a while now, and now that someone opted for it, here goes:
