    Just bumping this so hopefully a dev will take note, or respond if this is intentional. When you choose a particular fog of war to view, the enemies hidden in the fog should not show on the mini-map.

  • Spectating: Friendly vs Enemy Units / Fog of War

    As near as I can tell, all units are displayed as "friendly" units while spectating. The minimap shows Radiant Heros using the "Friendly" icons, and Dire heros using the "Enemy" icons, but otherwise everything is Friendly. This is fine with me, as long as you are using the "spectate all" option.

    However, when you change to spectate one specific team's Fog of War, nothing changes except the terrain color. All units are still colored as friendly, and units that should be hidden by the fog of war are still revealed.

    Suggestion: When you change the spectating options to see a particular team's fog of war, (1) it should also display THAT team as friendly and the other team as enemy. (2) Enemy units that are not in view should not be shown. And (3) when you are spectating the Dire team, reverse the minimap icons so the Dire heros use the friendly icon, and the Radiant heros use the enemy icon.
