Timing Trainer for DotA
by: th4t • 387
As you continue climbing the skill curve, you will inevitably realize that solid game knowledge is not enough. Awareness is essential to succeed, especially if you like playing a support role. Ceartainly you know that paying attention to the map is important, but you might forget about it in a challenging lane. Of course you know when to stack, but it happens that you remember about it when there are only 5 seconds left - not enough time to act. Being aware of the coming night could result in a successful gank, or a fed Balanar.
This app will announce important game events, using the built in text-to-speech engine of your android device. The announcements happen about 20 seconds before the events to give you time to react. No need for alt-tabbing, no need to keep your attention on two different displays.
You will be reminded of:
* Day/night changes
* Netral creep stack/spawn times
* Basic neutral creep pull times
In addition to this, you can start timers for:
* Roshan respawn time
* Ward refreshing
The progress of each event is shown with a progress bar (you will probably not have time to watch those during a real game), showing the remaining time and the time when it will occur. If the game is paused, you can easily adjust the app timer to match the game-time. Single event announcements can be disabled or enabled, so you are not annoyed with constant stacking requests when you decide that the laning phase is over. The buttons to do so can be made visible through the options menu (three dots).
This app is not meant to be used during every single of your future matches, but I can guarantee that enduring it for about three to five will benefit your game awareness. After getting constantly reminded of important time related events, chances are you will get into the habit of noticing. It is just another tool you can use to improve your games.
