Being able to waste abilities on minions is not exactly "fun", and too common during crowded team fights.
That's something I actually want to happen--or have a re-examination of the approach entirely. The advantage of an over-ride key is consistency (you always know that when you push it you only target champions), the disadvantage is that it requires the user to manipulate it (and know about it).
The tricky part is leaving the strategic option to do something you only rarely want to do while not making it entirely arcane. Of course, since the tilde key is currently entirely arcane, we're not really solving that very well
I'll bring it up to the responsible parties again, because I agree like crazy.
