Visualizing Stuns

Visual effects are important, especially in an MOBA. They should be easily recognizable to display what is going on with a character – Should I attack? Am I immobile? Should I avoid that player? The list goes on of course but without the visual aid associated with certain abilities how would you ever know what’s going on? This leads us to our next question…

How should Planet of Heroes show players that are stunned?

The goal is to make something simple, but easily noticeable. For example, some MOBAS will have a small swirl above the character and others will have the same, but the word “Stunned” will flash above them momentarily. Alternatively, some have a “dazed” sparkle/bubble effect surrounding the model to display the desired effect.

From full-screen options for the afflicted player to various small details, we want to know what you think the best possible option for displaying this status ailment could be. Let us know!

The swirl is the best option for it's familiarity. But make it just one swirl on the centre. It's enough.
