  • Suggestion: Show minimap colour of heroes underneath their portraits

    It would be nice if there was a bar of blue/teal/purple/yellow/orange etc. underneath hero portraits at the top border of the in-game HUD ( so people can recognize/learn easier which hero is indicated by what colour on the minimap.

    its in the top??wtf mate ?? or i just didnt understand what you are saying but i think the one you want is above the heroes....

      Hero portraits as in the small ones next to the kill counter (25-20 is the score in screenshot, at the top).

      I want to be able to look at minimap, look back up, and be able to tell which coloured dot is which enemy hero.

        they are on top now and you want them under? Thats not that big of a difference to make drastic change in recolonization imo.

          there is a setting in the options that let's you change the mini map's icons to tiny portraits of each hero. when they get really close they change back into the color blips, but by then you should have become familiar enough with who's what color.
