    [Suggestion] Hero portrait and Aghanim "skill point"

    Greetings, DotADev community!
    I have a couple of ideas which I want to share with you:
    1) Hero (as well as creeps, neutrals, etc.) portraits in non-animated mode are changed to actual pictures, like that:


    2) Ultimates, which have Aghanim's upgrade, will have extra "skill level point", and it will glow blue, when you pick up Aghanim:
    Version 1:

    Version 2 (more distance between skill points and AS point):


    Hope you like these ideas!

    I like the second one. Maybe it needs to be grey initially so that you don't think you can get a 4th point in it...

However, it has never looked at your historical win rate and put you in a game where it knew that you were expected to lose.
    Is every post on this forum about the Dunning-Kruger effect?

    First one is good, portraits being stuck on random frame looks bad.

    Second one will become useless as they add AS upgrades to all heroes.

    Even if they do (in 10 years maybe ), we can still have this point for all heroes

    Why? And it will be quite a long time before they add AS upgrades for all heroes. I mean years of time. So yeah - I like both suggestions.

    I tried to make it grey, and it sucks I'll try to make more space between original points and Aghanim one.

    When they add AS to all heroes that dot will represent AS bought and you already know that. I don't mind if they add it in meantime but honestly don't think they will do it just to remove it later on (even if its in 10 years time )

    +1 for both.

    Even if they do, there's no need to remove this extra skill point. One can argue that anyone knows when they bought an AS, so the animation itself is redundant.

    Animation is redundant but is visually pleasing to the eye, and dot on the other hand not so much

    wanted to make same suggestion as 1), animated portraits are just disturbing for me, nice 2d static portrait would be a lot better but currently all we get is just cheap 1 frame from animation
