    Improving the Tutorial Mechanics

    Post by Vicboy

    The game needs to improve on its teaching mechanics. So far, to learn the game mechanics, some would have to read the item tooltip, read the How-To-Use text on top of the screen (radio), read the tutorial or, like many newbs, learn from others.

    The game mechanics have been becoming deeper such as reviving feature, the EVAC ship steering, and repairing facilities.

    In order to address this, I figured a non-intrusive pop up text on the right of the screen that has an option to "Never Show Again" for every item/mechanic/event.

    Legacy of the Void is nearer than ever.

    Unexciting news for you veterans; but the less clueless cadets, the better!

    I think we need in-game tutorials and tips for the Thing itself...

    But this is a good idea.

    the idiot is just going to "try" (because everyone knows he cant do anything by himself)
    to make 10 lobbies.

    but whats the point of making 10 lobbies if you can barley get 6 people to join one>? his logic amuses me

    its like you tell a baker his cake sucks and he replies ~ i know what to do! ill bake ten!
    great now you have ten shitty cakes noone wants. derp de herp
