Default DOTA 2 'First Person View'?


Play Alien Swarm in first person: guide and video | PC Gamer

TF2 has it. Alien Swarm has it. Valve did a lot of first person view games, what do you think if DOTA 2 has an OPTION to switch to first person view? Of course you can't see who's coming behind u, but it'd be cool to see the actions at eye level. Better if it's available in replays too.

It's not weird if you can watch Lina close up front.

Possible because the Source Engine was made for FPS games. however the actual usage of such an option is doubtful. Hardly anyone would want to watch the game in FPS mode after the novelty factor wears off..

Did you know you can play Source FPS games from the third person perspective, and if you can code, from RTS type perspective.

Yeah it would be cool to switch to first person view and find out that your entire team had already been wiped out behind you after you switch back to normal view. its not needed IMO

A full 1st person Dota would be AMAZING!

A lot of dynamics would have to change, but it'd be super fun!!!

Aiming with a cross-hair + Viper = would be priceless!!

lol which part of 'option' is hard to understand? It won't be toggled on by default, but if even if u want it in game, the host has to enable it. So the players can't 'troll in first person mode' unless the host trolls first. It's a fun option. I don't want it by default too.

Great, pubs now have more reasons to say when they die. "Damn you cheat why you kill me while I was on first person view?"

When using it you would risk ignoring valuable information and are more prone to making mistakes. It may be fun for you but I doubt your teammates with consider it funny that their teammate makes consecutive mistakes just because he likes switching to first person view

That's why you play it in single player, just like you have to do with L4D if you want to do third person unless it's a third-party server.

Valve's likely to have official servers for this game, and cheats such as this are not usable on Valve's official servers. It's just a fun thing to dick around with in single player.

So far those who t-up agree with having this feature in replays or fun modes, and those who t-down misunderstood that the feature is suggested for main mode/default gameplay.

Would suck gameplay-wise, since you can't look behind your back. On the other hand you could look farther ahead.

Anyway, would be awesome for dota2 movies & stuff.
