    @TimeMaster You are right of course. But don't think of me saying that I've passed along an idea of it going straight to the development team's to-do list. Basically, I check the suggestions, take a look at if something has been suggested before or not and if it hasn't I will pass along a summary of the player's idea combined with the link to their post and the relevant team will look at it (and monitor any feedback posted on that thread).
    Sure, I'm no one to say what you should or have to do. I see that having a reply like yours to a suggestion is somewhat an improvement from the early total silence we had for most of the past 2-3 years of the game where most suggestions would be read but not replied at all.

    I know myself pretty well after posting many that a lot of them are just not plausible, not appropiate, not gonna happen any time soon, etc.

    But others might be interesting. However, neither the silence or the "passed along" message end up favoring the suggestion itself much. While some are very well elaborated and extense, others like this one don't even have a summary or an explained reason of why the suggestion was made. Many have just been there with a single or none reply at all.

    If an idea is interesting and/or isn't very developed or extense, it might have been great to try to incentivize it by asking questions like "why" or "how", even if all you care is about quantity instead of quality and obviously the team is the one deciding everything not players. Anyhow, atleast I would feel better if I were the one suggesting something. Rant over.

    What does internal on the CD mean? You know, asking for myself cuz dumb.
    means no matter how fast you can attack. you can only get knocked back once per second for 7 seconds. not 15x a second for 7 seconds if you have a hero that fires fast. 
    I don't think it's necessary, because you don't need time to react.  Just check the direction your back is facing whenever you are attacking.
     I  eagerly await you back pedalling on this next patch. There is a difference between balanced challenge and screwing over you players.
    I'll try to reason it instead of going the "get gud" response:

    How is worse or different a "soft" counter of heroes with high attack speed compared to the plain armor resistance to others.

    Elemental resistances make some heroes less effective, Knockback make melee heroes and High attack speed heroes less effective.
    Similar with having Additional spawn of High Damage Minions make squishy heroes potentially less effective or big minions/mercenaries make knockback effects less effective. etc.

    The discussion is more about if it is too frustrating or if it makes it a too good counter, which in my opinion it makes you change your playstyle and be more aware like other modifiers like the rubble or the spudge on pickups or the bomb.
