    Suggestion: Add "Gold needed to complete" to Item Upgrades

    heya guys

    For example

    You want to build treads and you already have Boots and Belt of strenght. then 500 gold is needed to complete it (for gloves of haste)
    but if you go with your mouse over treads it only displays the total cost. it would be cool if you could add that theres also displayed the gold which you need for this upgrade to complete.

    now actually you have to click on it, then look at what you have and what you need and you have to add the amount of gold by yourself, maybe this just takes 1-5 more seconds but I just thought of it...

    also, this would be cool on upgrades that need a lot of items like s&y or so...

    regards

    T-down.
    If you're confused with the prizes, means you didnt spend enough time with dota.
    Don't make dota2 community dumb implementing this "aid"

    When you play this game long enough you'll know all the prizes by heart. So displaying the price of what something currently costs is something that makes getting into the game easier.

    Disagree, I think people should eventually learn prices of all items. Cluttering UI with another 4 numbers is just not needed.

    Agree.

    There's no reason not to do this. Just under the total price you can put a second number in a different color that is the amount of extra money you need based on what you have now.

    New players already have a ton of stuff to learn -- just learning all the heroes and their abilities is a pretty daunting task. Giving them help isn't a bad thing and isn't going to turn DotA into a shallow game. DotA has plenty of depth without forcing players to do trivial mental math to figure out when they can buy something.

    yes. and actually I for myself play dota since 6.48 and I'm familiar with the prices. ...lol

    just thought it might be cool for new people.
    also knowing the prizes wont help you calculating it by yourself...so I for my self miscalculated a lot of times while focused in the game and its crap if you wanna buy something and you have 100 too little gold

    BTW, you can add this functionality without any great effort and if you dont want it then look away.

    just my2cents
