I figured this is the best place to put this, so here it goes.
Basically, the idea is to have in-world indicators for pings, in addition to the crosshairs over marked enemy heads.
Alert ping would have a blue arrow point down at the area, with a ring tightening on the ping location.
Retreat ping would have a yellow exclamation point above the area, with a jagged ring expanding from the marked point.
Dota 2 has this and it's extremely helpful, LoL really needs it
I can support this idea, I've had similar thoughts in the past.
