    Title: Holding hotkey does not charge skill
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? No.
    Details: If I hold down a skill hotkey before the global cooldown expires then that skill will not start charging once the global cooldown has ended. For comparison, if I hold down the left mouse button before the global cooldown expires then my free-attack will start charging the instant the global cooldown ends. If I'm holding down a skill hotkey then it should start charging when the global cooldown expires, just like free-attack does.
    Steps to Reproduce: See "Details".

    Yes, it's been this way since the implementation of charging skills. It's not the way it should be though. It should work like charging a free attack does.

    They were ignoring my requests to change it so I thought that I would change my tactic and make a bug report.

    Am I just not describing the issue clearly enough? Please let me know because it's very frustrating UI behavior.
