Yes a great suggestion
No the suggestion sucks
Continuing from the thread I posted here:
I have made this thread with a poll so people can vote for the suggestion about Empath getting double activation during her ult on the target she ults.Hello fellow HoN'ers.
I am here to talk about Empath and her ultimate. A feature in the game that has annoyed me for some time now is the fact that on all heroes you can use the double activation mechanism (where you press an item 2 times to use it on yourself), however this is the same for empath when you use your ultimate on someone else. The double activation mechanism tries to use the item on empath, but as it is unable to target her nothing happens.
What I would like to suggest that is changed is that if empath uses her ultimate on a hero and then double clicks an item i.e. Tablet of Command, then ToC will be used on the hero that she ultimates instead of trying to use it on the Empath hero.
I use the double activate function a lot but I often fail as Empath because I completely forget that it does not work and in those close situations it REALLY matters if you use it at the right moment.
Hope that people can agree that this would be a nice implementation to make the Empath hero a little cooler then she already is
Gonna bump this thread now for more attention on the subject and for people to vote for this awesome implementation :-)
This worked when empath first came out. I don't know exactly when it switched, but its been annoying me ever since then.

Voting no would defy logic. In less there are bitter people who want to make playing Empath irrationally 'more annoying' by not being able to double activate.
Im not for it. What if i want to use healing pot or mana pot on myself (empath) and not on an ally? It can be really messy.
@En_Dotter. If you read the other thread this was already discussed. The cases where you want to double activate an item to save the life of the guy you are inside rather than yourself. Mana pots and heal pots are not really used much after Empath reaches level 6 compared to items such as tablet or Storm.
I see and understand your point but using a heal put on yourself wont change much when you are inside someone anyway. The mana pot could be game changing, but would not think it as game changing as tablet or Storm...
You can always activate once and use it on your own portrait in the top left. More often or not you won't need those pots. Or if you do have them, you're better off using them on other team members. The chances of needing to use one when inside someone is remote. Particular with regards to health. A 15 charge power supply would be able to restore 50% of your health.
