Hero selection ui is awful

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

If I have 4 builders in my deck and I want to swap them out for maybe a hero dps, or maybe some leveling alts, then the amount of clicking and right clicking and just plain fiddling to get it done is pretty bad.

Steps:

1. Press H on keyboard
2. Mouse to heroslot to swap
3. Right click
4. Left click on Swap
5. Mouse to hero you want to select
6. Right click
7. Left click to select
Repeat for each hero slot you want to swap

With the time limitation on campaign this is like 15 seconds operation which is WAY to much! Also, hero slot 2 doesn't work properly, and you have to left click on TWO different characters before the "select" function works properly. Was like this all of early access, and this bug is still here.

I have to agree with you here, it is very clumsy trying to switch heroes.. especially when you're down on time. Even though it probably should of been revamped before release I'm sure that they will eventually get to it if it is brought to their attention.

For now we will have to deal with it, and besides just try your best to have your hero deck setup the most efficient way possible.

Every single thing about this UI is bad, not just hero swap. Selling items, locking items, sorting them, stats not updating etc. But overall hero decks shouldn't exist. There should be a bar with something lke 10 slots, you press button, it pops you pick hero and play. You should also be able to swap heros while in inventory with arrows or something no swapping them with deck to do some inventory changes.

I use a controller.  I feel your pain x10.  Changing back to my DPS character with 2 seconds left in the preposterously-restrictive timer on Lava Mines Campaign Massacre is harder and more stressful than using Shang Tsung in Mortal Kombat 2 and trying to get a fatality where you freeze the opponent with Sub Zero and then Switch to  Kung Lao and throw your hat at them, decapitating them while frozen.

Okay, it's an elaborate comparison.  But it's harder than it needs to be by a lot.  :)

It would be nice if you were able to assign alternate heros to certain slots, like if you could put all of your squires in the first slot and then use the mouse wheel to switch between them quickly.

Or maybe the possibility to create several hero deck  would be great

It would be nice if the hero deck (H) when in the tavern just opened the hero swap screen with a view of heroes like tiles where you can freely swap them one for another by drag and drop.

Press H, see deck and all the other heroes below it, drag and drop  from below to spot in deck. If controller, click spot in deck and click hero below.

No bouncing through pages, no unnecessary actions, everything presented on one page.

There is so much space on screen - we should be able to see all our heroes, ordered how we like including custom order.

Then just right click to assign to deck with a symbol to show they are in it. Or click then press the F key you want to use.

etc.

Maybe your screen, but they intend to put this on the Switch.

It would be nice to have some custom deck presets that we could name & save and quickly switch between in build phases.

It would also be nice to have any other variant of the ui than we currently have, but you know, us defenders gotta be really patient for this kinda thing :S

I do have some issues with the Hero UIs, and that whole swapping bit (even just a "Customize" option when you open your hero deck and select a hero, its wonky how you have to choose select, then find your hero and apply a skin or customize). I cant offer any idea how to make it better, but other things have been fixed, so im confident it can be done.

If you post that in the report bugs menu option in game they may take it into consideration

its not just for reporting bugs so I have been told

Yeah I've added some suggestions via the bug report option we have, I am trying not to abuse it too much and opt for open discussion on forums a bit more :)

Although I do agree that we should all have open talks about features we would like added to the game I hardly would call it abuse unless you are doing it about the same thing over and over, I mean its highly unlikely that the community team goes up to the dev team and is like so I read this really cool thing that the players want in the game can we make that happen?

I mean, I am using the term 'abuse' loosely obviously.

I am talking about discussing things with the community and refining my thoughts/ideas before submitting it the second it pops into my head ,is all :)

For fast switch on PC use F1-F4

I prepare my deck before I start a map, so I only have to switch e.g. one builder to one dps.
