Right now, when a teammate pings something or someone, the target of the ping has their champion name but the person doing the pinging doesn't. For example:
FishMonger has targeted WazootyMan (Ryze)
SlappyMcTwoPants warns everyone to back away from BLOODGUY (Teemo)
It's nice that I can see who's being targeted, but I don't always know who FishMonger or Slappy are playing as, and that context can really help me decide what action I should take.
