    Maybe can spray paint the ground for fun, like how it works in first person shooter games?

    Spray paint PA arcana on the ground looks good. Or Spray paint a danger sign or I was here sign ,etc.

    Oh, I almost had forgotten that we HotS now ever since we had talents. Thank you for your gentle reminder

    is there anything else Dota 2 can rip off from that game? Mounts, perhaps? Mastery taunts? Unlockable heroes? Quick Match mode with crappy matchmaking included?

    Is there a single topic you post in that you aren't being a blatant asshole Leadblast?

    On topic: Sprays are pretty fun to mess around with in Overwatch and its a neat little way to add customization without really changing the game in any significant way beyond: oh look at this cool spray. I feel like Valve would have some issues doing this for 100+ heroes as opposed to ows 30ish but who knows. I'd dig it.

    That's what they have in HotS, but it's pretty poorly excecuted.

    We do have Techies minefield sign already (non aghs), which was originally an arcana exclusive element. Reddit raged about it pretty hard because of "crazy OP mindgames pay2win", so they made it a default ability

    How about no?
    The game already is a fucking firecracking mess, and w/ every arcana it gets worse. Imagine if everyone would still have their own Blood Rite cosmetic shit to paint the whole thing with.
    I'm ok, as in "I would rather not, but it ain't doing too much harm", w/ the permanent shiny poops and temporary pisses that some cosmetics are leaving on the ground as you walk, kill, and twerk.
    But let's leave them like that. Rare.
    Valve already has its ways of making money. Don't give them the ideas.

    It'd be also very weird for Dota heroes to spew graffitipaint around.. it IS a fantasy setting..

    Hots had it? I didnt know. Actually spray paint started with valve half life. So, it isnt ripping off hots. It is ripping off valve half-life. Basically, Gaben would be ripping himself off :)

    It isnt a rip off. It is just a common feature in games.

    lol? It seems heroes of the storm already has it? If it adds more fun, why not.

    Btw, I googled blatant asshole leadblast as a phrase, and guess wat, no one else on the net has used that 3 words together as a phrase, only uuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu.
    I guess originality is a big deal with u.

    P.S> Are u related to lovestep or leadblast?

    Hmmm thinking more of a smaller one and not a big one like blood rite, just on the ground.

    In a way, it already exists in the cosmetic category because PA Arcana leaves a mark on the ground on targets she kills. I say it gets more colourful, not worst. I guess u dont like color.

    But I do get what u mean, in some teamfights, when omniknight casts his ulti and everyone sends their stuff over, it does get abit flashy and u sometimes wonder what happen. This is one the ground though, should not be flashy or glowing. Currently we can make the water change color already.

    I see the irony goes over its head. Maybe if I type it out in capital letters, rainbow colours and Comic Sans it will understand.

    Ehhh. It was fun in goldsrc and cs:s because you could use custom sprays. Dota would force you to use pre made sprays and I totally hate the idea of that.

    Custom sprays will have middle fingers and nude ladies or some crap. I am damn sure of it. Do not awaken this great evil...
    We need spray paints of gaben and cute CM dancing or something.

    Lets not make it worse

    This is an original idea.

    Why not. U can get some free too. It is often only a dollar or 2 only.

    Sprays (or Graffiti) used to be free in CS 1.6. You could spray a Pornstar, Putin, Spongebob, anything you wanted. Now you have to pay a few bucks for some stupid looking images.
