Quickcast Ping

Post by Eric » Sat Jan 09, 2016 3:08 pm

With the recent discovery of the quick charge exploit, the easiest solution would be to remove the ping ability altogether. Instead of that, I propose we change it to act as a quickcast ability, in which the ping marker would appear under your mouse cursor as soon as you press the ping hotkey. This would both eliminate the quick charge exploit, as well as allow for greater communication between teammates. The player with the puck would then be able to simultaneously charge up his shot or pass while providing his team with signals on where they should go. Obviously, a cooldown on the ability should still exist to prevent spamming. Thoughts?

How could someone be so beautiful and so smart? +1

Would this also allow someone to ping while charging? It'd be pretty nice to ping where each pass is going.

Not 100% sure, but I may or may not have seen one of Elder's hilariously named smurfs use the bazooka without ping. Ask the sage for wisdom.
