    I think you can that. Just press it in hotkey management option thingy, and then hold down ctrl and press the skill button.

    They should make it toggle to begin with. One click to toggle. One to put it off without binding to the autocast at the start of the game everytime.

    I mean what's the point of clicking Q and then selecting the target you want to slow with Drow's Q for only one time? It just... feels odd.

    Nope. Care to explain?
    I can't see any reason to not just make it a toggle on/off instead.

    Isn't that just abusing mechanics that were not meant to be this way?

    I don't think it should be in dota 2 to be fair... It's just abusing the old war III engine...

    It would be like removing towers. For many it would be very weird.

    Orb walking is a part of the game just like animation canceling. If it needs to be removed, it will be removed as an "evolution" over time; not in the D1 -> D2 conversion.

    Also, manual cast (not orb walk) is extremely important in early game.

    I think the idea of hitting a hotkey twice is awesome. But the idea of choosing, do you want to toggle or double hotkey is even better. I do not agree that it would be unfair, heroes with no auto casting abilities use their ability once and they get what they want and they have a hotkey. shouldn't it be a part of a skill that you can use a hotkey to activate it? autocasting or just one frostarrow for example...

    I support the Hold down hotkey -> Autocast. Feels intuitive enough to me.
