[ Hero Concept ] New Mechanic: Enforce [8]

This is a mechanic post of [ Hero Concept ] series.

Enjoy :)




ONCE per match, this skill can be casted when it's not available (With some price!).

Enforced usage does not affect cooldown.


//Not available means: On cooldown, is Silenced, or not the caster's turn


Enforce is a skill mechanic as opposed to Soulburn.

It requires strategy, is soul-free, but one-time-only.

Enforce price varies from hero to hero.

Enforce only applies to one skill of a hero.

AI will not Enforce.

More unpredictability and strategy

Enforce skills can be casted when they are not available, catching the opponent off guard.

Since Enforce cast only happens once in a match, player have to use it wisely.

Counters Silence/Increase cooldown/Belian

Provides another option to deal with these headaches.

Shows a hero's characteristic

Different heroes have different Enforce prices.

Some are acute, some are mild.

These aspects helps with hero characterisation.



Q: Why don't players just use up Enforce asap?

A: This is a rushed way to utilize Enforce.

But hero's Enforce effect is designed to have the highest value or lowest cost, only if used when the right timing/situation has come.

If used right, the price may turn into advantage!

Of course, heroes who are likely to die fast won't be designed into a slow Enforce plan :)

    These individuals couldn't remove text from AI arena battles without breaking game code and you expect them to be able to program that?

    I like this idea, I will definitely use it on Soul weavers or Aoe Damage dealers. It can really help players turn the tables.

    If you shake balance that hard there is no way it will survive this.

    Ah sweet, I landed the silence so I don't lose the match. Oh wait, some dota player suggested a new mechanic that now will screw me regardless. No thanks.

    Here comes TC again with another half baked idea and an extreme amount of focus on his warped line of thought to justify it. Instead of focusing on your warped perception of logic it might be a good idea to actually flesh out your idea first, hmm?

    Can I have some of that really hard drugs that you have consumed?
