idea is simple -
you grey out heroes that you dont want to play with ctrl+click or smth, then press magic button and get random hero which isnt greyed out.
it can be done with choosing random "Spawnhero Hero_heroname" command taken from some file i guess.
kevs926 found brilliant way to do so -
-u right click the random dice on picking screen
-it shows portrait
-if u hate it u press again, if you like it you press confirm button nearby
u dont get bonus gold from it obviously because it isnt 'true' random.
i guess its even possible to show potential hero near your name as it would've shown when you right click a hero.
all that is needed is to merge right clicking a hero and random button into 1 command, and add additional button for confirming (manual picking would work too i guess but button is easier)
would be cool to have this mod because i often dont want to play specific heroes but dont want to pick certain hero either.

I like this idea. It would be nice to see this implemented. Some times I just don't know witch hero to play but I random a hero I completely don't like playing.
This feature would be nice, but I don't think it would be used enough to deserve any kind of priority in implementation. Basically they wouldn't ever add it even if they thought it was good due to more important things being around like tits on characters and balance.
So find a randomizer on the internet. They let you put in options and then it chooses one at random. You can random again if you don't like it. Or you could just not put in the heroes you don't want, then you can random amongst the ones you're willing to play.
Buy the courier at the beginning of the match. This magically frees you from the responsibility of buying wards.
who cares about implementation, i want a mod >.<
close your eyes, hover around with mouse randomly, and ghost pick. :O
jokes aside, since this would not do any harm - why not code it. on the other hand, there is some sense missing in it, as you random to get bonus gold and maybe play heroes you did not have for some time.. and for a lil risk of it :P. by the time u dont wanna random (e.g. you alraedy had like 3 randoms in team or sth), there is no need to ghost-random something, coz you wanna choose a suitable pick.
bottom line: this is more or less a mod the majority will use to re-random until they finally get scout :P.

Technically I should probably be working on fixing up the list of problems in my current mods. And technically I could have just waited for revan_xp to create it. But anyway, I suddenly found myself working on it, and here it is:
Random Potential Hero
What it does, is if you right click the random dice button, it randomly selects a potential hero for you (like when you right-click to select a hero). It's actually very simple. Hopefully it works fine.
One more improvement that I have not yet added, but want to, is that whenever you have a potential hero selected, your Ready button should become a Select button, so that you don't have to go and search for the hero to pick them. But I'm too lazy to do that now, so maybe later.
