Thread: [Intended?] Buying obs/gem/smoke from enemy's shop sets cooldown for your team's shop

    Exclamation [Intended?] Buying obs/gem/smoke from enemy's shop sets cooldown for your team's shop

    This was pretty big in Dota 1. I'd like to see it fixed in Dota 2.


    Summary:
    If you buy 2 sets of obs wards, for example, from the enemy's shop, and return to your shop, even if wards had not been bought from your shop the entire game, they will be out of stock.

    Repro Steps:
    1. Buy wards from enemy shop
    2. Try to buy wards from your shop.

    Result:
    Team-based cooldown instead of shop-based cooldown.

    Expected Result:
    Should be able to have 8 wards in your inventory if you buy wards from enemy base, tp to your base, and then buy more wards.

    Sort of wrong.

    Current DotA 1 behavior:
    Trying to purchase restocking items (Observer Wards, Gem of True Sight, Smoke of Deceit) will spend your gold and purchase the item, reducing their shop stock. However, you will receive the error message "You are not allowed to carry Observer Wards from the enemy store" and the items will be spawned in the middle of the enemy fountain area instead. They count as "owned" by you (which doesn't really matter) and could be picked up and used as normal if you were willing to dive the enemy fountain.

    Usually this just spent your gold to give the enemy free consumables.

    Pretty sure you could deny them though.

    added to the intended changes list.
    related to being able to use your own stash at the enemies fountain too, i'd say.
