  • DotaTV minimap inconsistencies when watching a broadcaster/free camera


    I recently noticed a few issues when watching a tournament via DotaTV and following the caster's perspective.
    Certain things don't show up on the minimap: Pings, minimap drawings, spawn status of jungle camps and sentry wards.
    Observer wards always show up.

    All those things work fine when using free camera, and sometimes (but not always) switching between cameras fixes these issues.
    Also, in the case of sentry wards, some show up while others don't (example from MDL Secret v Empire Game 3 at ~3minutes).
    In the example you can see that some sentries don't show and that you cannot see the creep "dots" in the camps.

    I haven't checked whether or not this happens in replays as I mostly watch live.
