  • Courier has no upgrade path ?

    If you want to upgrade the courier you can't click on it and then choose the upgrade via the shop menu. This is extremely frustrating when you can do it for every other in game item that can be upgraded yet not the courier? This must confuse new players.

    It currently looks like this

    and i believe this would look better.


    Edit: This will also help newer players understand that they need to buy the walking courier before they purchase the flying. If you've ever played with new players they opt for the flying courier and then wonder why it doesn't work..

      I think it is a cool idea, but you shoud change the text you wrote, say something about the shop screen, I got confused by it and could only understand what you were suggesting after looking at the pictures.

                      The reason I think that it's in its current state is because of the fact that anyone can upgrade the courier. It's not technically linear. I can buy the courier and then another teammate can upgrade it. With the way the upgrade pathing works, it implies that you have to own the original item in order to get the upgraded item that branches off it.

                      It's true that the Flying Courier is the upgrade to the Courier, but it's not true that I need to buy a Courier in order to buy a Flying Courier, hence, the two separate items.
