I clicked purchase alternative skin for Vindicator after having picked that hero (yes I selected him with left button). So Purchase icon was still there and all my silver was still there according to interface. I clicked again, and again and again. Nothing happened.
So I clicked the shop, and I had lost the silver, yet it still didn't say the Vindicator was bought there either. But after the game, the new alternative skin was set as purchased in the store.
It's no biggie, but it kinda removes the purpose of buying an alt skin in picking phase if you can't pick the new model/skin.
Also one other little note. There are some notes which still are displaying text while their textbox is too small. The text boxes are displayed in bottom right corner. I don't remember which tooltips it is, but next time it happens, I'll tell directly.
you can do that. but you have to purchase the hero with the hero select, ergo press the blue head to pick your hero.
I'm sorry I don't know what you mean.
But I had selected my hero. Then I assume I can buy the alternative skin for him and then selecting that alternative skin instead.
Rather than having to wait for one match before I may select it.
There shouldn't be rocket science to select the alternative skin or some special way.
This ALSO happened to my friend, so I'm going to consider it a bug.
It happens on your first game with him if you purchase it via the hero pick interface, it's also a known bug
