I imagine the majority of players do not use QuickCast, and most pros argue for using On-Release or full QuickCast but I’d like to make the case that playing without QuickCast is better, not only because you get the permanent range indicator, but the range indicator also changes colors from yellow to green letting you know that you’re in range and that you’ll get guaranteed damage. With On-Release you still get the range indicators and the color change but it feels unnatural to release a key to confirm your action rather than pressing down a mouse button.
I’ve turned QuickCast on for Genji after playing him quite a bit and it feels awful on everything except DragonBlade. Granted, QuickCast is not a hack to become a GrandMaster overnight, but I’m wondering if it really can improve performance across all skill levels.
What are your experiences with QuickCasting?
If you use On-Release or Full QuickCast, what abilities do you turn it off for on your hero, and if not is the reason “I didn’t know it existed.”, or “I don’t like change.”, or “Its too late to change now.”, or “I don’t think it will help me get better.”?
It would be helpful to have a WikiPage with a general consensus for each Hero regarding which type of QuickCast to use for each of their abilities.
Please use the following format to contribute to such a page if it’s ever made.
