Idea for the minimap
 
You know how you can see your projected path when you click a location?


I'd love it if there was a toggle to see where your friends were going, too. Often times you can figure it out, but it'd be nice to see where they're currently going.

Very cool idea! I like it.

Unfortunately, currently we dont send your allies full paths over the network, in order to save bandwidth and make your experience smoother, so the information isnt available to draw this path =(

But, in theory, couldn't you just send the allies destination, and not the whole path? It would then be possible to have your computer calculate the path your ally is going to take, since both your computer and your ally computer would use the same method to calculate the path.

I support this idea as long as it doesn't drastically effect latency. Some other good changes that i'd like to see are more distinct hero icons in the minimap as well as something different to indicate the creeps because currently, it just looks like a circle made in ms paint

edit - and more visible pings

real good idea indeed.

the fact is that the server should get the calculated path of a player and transmit it to others --> latency gets bigger.

Maybe not, if like he said, they only send the destination and our computer calculate the path, I think it can be ok just to send 4 destination points, no?
