Super Important Game Breaking Mechanic

How the hell do i turn off this retarded ult turning nonsense they added?

Its total garbage compared to just using mouse movement. 

@CM_Jouska why would you add this? Does anyone even test these mechanics? Now it overrides the mouse movement aim and you cant look around without redirecting it. 

Why? Just why was this necessary? How retarded do you think the playerbase is that this would actually help?

Maybe you should just adjust your hacks to make up for it, buddy.

there is a mechanic for looking around you know ;p

by default its the scroll wheel ( the middle mouse button, whatever you call it). press and hold it, then look around

hmmm i rebound that button to a hotkey

My issue is that people will try and get behind me so i can click behind me to flip the ult in a 180. But when i switch back to camera control to try and turn the camera that way the new aim redirects back forward giving them enough time to dip out. Irritating af.

I saw this post earlier and dismissed it thinking OP was being dramatic as well -- until I went in RBF and had OWPvP encounters and I realized OP is making a lot of good points. I wouldn't call it 'game breaking', but it should be treated as a serious issue. With the recent patch, the mouse no longer toggles off(disappears) when being hit, so we can turn our aoe easier now. There should be a toggle for using the camera for it.

Just a bit. Hyperbole for clicks but its still a bit of an issue. An extremely irritating issue.

When you said game breaking I thought you were referring to the 90% slow wizards have from chain lightning.

This is actually an added feature. Now, you can turn your Lightning Ultimate while in-progress to change targets w/o the mouse movement activated. Just don't change your angle if you want to keep it in the same area.

Edit:

Ok, my bad, I now see how this could be a negative. lol

Wiz have 90% slow from chain lighting?!! HOW?!  I thought you could only get it to 50% at best if awakened?

Why would it be a negative thing?

Because you can't look around without moving your spell and it turns so slowly and periodically that it's not even useful for what it's intended to be used for; the old method of turning on click-to-move and clicking the direction you want to aim is still instant and thus much superior for aiming, and before this change allowed us to look around and survey the situation much more easily as well.

I haven't be able to get the click-to-move function to work which is why I find this useful. How to you do the aiming for the click-to-move?

Before they made this change, you simply moved your camera around as you wanted, hit Ctrl and clicked the ground in the direction you wanted your spell to be aimed. Now you have to hold down the camera button (middle mouse button by default) in order to look around without moving the spell thus cancelling the mouse-click aiming. If you're having trouble, are you sure you have the option on? It's "Use mouse movements" in the Game tab of the settings.

I had the option on but turned it off after I couldn't figure out how it worked. 

I didn't realize that was an option before the patch and it sounds nice. Could you use the option for other spells?

Anything that isn't targeted; you can still do it, just don't move the camera (at least not without holding down the camera button) or else it will re-align your spell.

Yup. Just about all of them that you would need it for. Move meteor around while its going off. If you try and use the new mechanic it will only move in the second between the initial fire dmg and the actual end burst. Big for blizzard as well if you use it. 

Having been using the original click method long before they made this change I gotta say its a huge downgrade and worse because there is no option to turn it off. Over a month later and I still keep slipping up and try to turn the camera to see where im shooting like the scrub i am...


(This was a shameless bump to get more/new attention. Having this reverted back would be a huge QoL change)

I feel the same and there should be a way to turn this off, i look behind me to see if someone is coming up on me, and bam it turns my spell.
