Stuff Riot needs to copy from Dota 2

#21UnderwaterAirPosted 1/3/2013 1:14:06 AM
I want us to be able to move UI elements around. And that's it.

Cosmetics in dota are also very VERY lame. Stupid community doesn't want anything novel cuz they hardcore serious.

Edit: Although... I, myself, would of liked some sillier things to be in dota.. (I REALLY want a venomancer riding on a skateboard) I just feel the game would be off if they were to break the items fitting lore/character design stuff, and I'm sure quite a few people remember the uproar Alpine Ursa caused.

I remember CHA saying it was superior while back

There's stupidity and then there's Dennis.

I agree with some things and disagree with others.

I don't want a respawn timer thing at the top of the screen. I can see respawn timers by pressing tab, and I much prefer being able to see my ally's health and mana on the left hand side of the screen. It's nice to be able to tell at a glance how able my team is to contest objectives or push towers after teamfights and so on. I find this way more useful than knowing if an enemy has disconnected since disconnects are far less common in LoL than they are in Dota 2.

I really like quick buy, but I don't see it being useful in League. In Dota, you can buy items when you aren't at the shop and it goes into your stash at the spawn. You can then either go get it yourself, have an ally get it and carry it to you, or if your team bought a Courier then you have a little critter that can ferry it to you. Furthermore, if you die in Dota you lose gold, so being able to buy an item right before you die can potentially save you money. League doesn't have that sort of item management, so I can't really think of what quickbuy accomplishes for you. And as much as I would love for League to have a stash system, it's not going to happen.

One thing that you didn't explicitly mention is that in Dota you can hover over abilities and see what leveling them up does even when you don't have a free skill point. It doesn't make much of a difference for champions one is familiar with, but there have been times I have been playing a new champion and wanted to know that stuff before I hit level 2.

I... I'm not sure I understand what's happening... Are... are they complaining because something they could buy was in the game? That.... that they don't HAVE to buy...?

I can't tell if my opinion of their community just dropped by around 50% or just went goodbye forever.

The voices for every thing is very annoying. When I watch a game it's just a mess of heroes just yelling crap.

That's not the point the complaining was going on about, whether they have the choice of buying it or not makes no difference.

EDIT: Don't get me wrong, I'm not agreeing completely with what happened, but I understand the cries out (though some were a bit overboard with what they were "threatening" to do if Alpine Ursa was not removed.)

Basing your view of Dotas community off of this is a bit silly, considering league just had a similar enough issue involving that Kat skin.

The only UI stuff I want from DotA 2 is the map drawing and mana cost on skill icons.

What I want LoL to also do is give an option to put hero icons beside the minimap. It would help so much on overall awareness, especially Shen. I'd like to see the CS of the enemy I highlighted too. Old shoop I did back when UI was first revealed:

Also, I want cooldown icons for ally summoner spells.
