    Consider adding smartcast to this game

    For those that don't know, smartcasting is a mechanic in league of legends that bypasses clicking on a target when you use a skill, it simply uses it on the target your mouse is hovering over

    If you haven't tried this, i urge you to, this is an addition that makes the game feel much, much smoother.

    And if you're going to argue clicking on a target is skill-based.. Just.. Really?

    You must be a software development expert, what issues it might cause exactly?

    Options are good. I would personally never use it since I'm waay too used to the way it is. But this game is not for only me, or the hardcore Dota fans. Not even Dota players from the stone age should be able to argue no-skill on this one.

    +1, why not.

    the problem with DotA currently is that there are so many purists, vehemently against all other improvements that come from newer games of the same gengre, just because it might somehow spoil the perfection of the game.
    Well guess what, the game keeps on being patched, it's not perfect and it could use all the improvements available to become better than its competition.

    Pretty much exactly what i fear will be the ultimate failure of DotA 2, its ok to add some of the improvements from other games in the genre, like, i'd say the two best things about LoL are smartcast and its very, very smart shop interface.

    God do i love smartcast.. It just feels so smooth to me :P, but i nkow plenty of people who hate it too, it tends to appeal to more, twitchy-action style players

    Wait, correct me if I am wrong but smartcasting is making the game choosing the target for you?

    What do you mean by "smooth"?

    no, smart cast simply eliminates the need to click, you just hover your mouse over the target you want

    maybe using hotkey to aim spell while hovering mouse over someone I don't want to target and casting the spell on him in result?
