Possible visual addition of opponents remaining WOM pool

Lotus_MoonLotus_Moon Posts: 7,785Registered Users
I was thinking would it be beneficial to see opponents WOM pool in same way as you can see your own one (it could be a smaller icon near the mini map).

The benefits of it;

Monitor WOM left to opponent
Determine how your abilities/items are affecting him


Be able to see WOM go down when a spell is cast so potentially easier way to spot spells you might have missed, though that could be seen as a positive in some way also for newer players.

    I would say it shouldnt be exactly accurate but should let you know what they have in a range. Maybe 0-10 11-20 21-30 as brackets.

    Should you have this much tactical informatuon on your opponent in this regard is what I wonder though. Not in favor or against it necessarily curious to see how this thread plays out.

    I think this would be fun and help make it clear how useful the mana degenerating items are.

    What about a small blue WoM vortex that varies in size/intensity/transparency around caster units instead?

    I would rather have something not interface related for the enemy information.

    I like it
    Read all my replies as if we are having a pint and a good old time. I will always read your reply like that.

    How would something like this be implemented. I wouldn't want it on the hub. Maybe if you scroll over the caster they'd show the amount of WoM they have and whats left in the reserves.

    Would be interesting.
    Ya a general indicator of how much, dont give the specific number of WOM though.
    Just make a smaller orb next to the WOM. Make it similar to our current WOM orb but without the number so it would give a general indicator.

    Not sure what I think yet, but one option would be a wom balance indicator rather, which side has the most?

    I would put a 10s delay on it so that you cannot spot a spell being cast in this way.

    Idk, I'm not sure its a good idea to know exactly how much WoM your opponent has left. Knowing exactly what spells your opponent is capable of casting at what time would hurt the magic gameplay IMO. I'd rather it stay vague guesswork with a bit of surprises rather than turning magic into a 100% knowable system.
