  • Hero Colours - minimap

    Did a search and didn't find any post on the subject. Also, not sure if correct subforum.

    I have two issues concerning the hero colours on the minimap:

    The colours of player slot #2 and #8 are too similar (light blue/teal?)

    The colour of player slot #7 is too identical to a large portion of the minimap which makes it hard to spot.

    I know that these are the colours that have always been used in DotA, thanks to the WC3 Engine, but if there's some solution, i would appreciate that. I also realise that my problem could be solved by using the console setting for colouring all heroes the same colour (green/red, respectively), but that would, i think, reduce the use of the minimap, as i would manually have to check what hero is on his way to assist me on a gank, for example.
