    or just show HP bars? why zoom the throne? there might be someone defending at the same time and you would miss that if all you see is the throne

    It was just a mock-up. As I said, Valve can do this a lot better and they can do it zoomed out as well. I didn't wanna go through the console to zoom out the camera so both thrones look decently far away and centered on each side. And in a base-race, where both ancients are being hit pretty hard at the same time, believe in me, what people wanna see are the ancients.

    It's just anti-climatic if the ancient that blows up is not the one that the caster is showing. It leaves a bad after taste.

    +1 It's good, though, what about some sort of diagonal split screen? Just from the placement and the flow of the map is all.

    Take a look into the mirror! You think you are completely unfailable. With your limited knowledge, you think that you know more than someone who is very deep in the matter/an expert.

    number of pixels is rarely the bottleneck for graphics rendering these days, it's all about the triangles and the viewports now. The fact that each half of the screen is only half as many pixels would NOT mitigate the added stress of having more models needed to be kept under camera frustum.

    I wouldn`t mind some sort of tree icon next to the 5 radiant heroes (-clock-) 5 dire heroes tab at very top and a Dire icon next to dire team.
    Just two icons with small health bars green and red.The icons themselves spaced an inch away from the most outer heroes.

    OR the icons can look like stone carving within the stone.The radiant is a tree with light within the carvings and Dire is the evil mountain eye with lava.The amount of light or lava in the grooves depends on the health.See Lord of the rings the fellowship of the ring at the white tree stone (The door of Durian at Moria)

    very good suggestion.
    there isnt even a need for a hotkey. just show up both hp bars as soon as both ancients are under attack in a given timeframe.
