  • Introducing temporary mini-map markers for potential threats / objectives

    The main use-cases for this, off the top of my head, is to improve team communication about potential longer-term threats such as enemy wards, Techies' mines, Roshan's Death.

    Just like how you can place temporary markers(s) on any modern GPS software and even old-school games like Minesweeper, I'm interested to know the community's thoughts on allowing players to place up to 4 temporary markers each by pressing (an arbitrary hot-key combination like) CTRL-ALT-SHIFT-Click. These markers will only disappear after the player/any team member repeats the hot-key at that location.

    I was also wondering about merging this command (or the present alt-click Minimap command) with the alt-click Clock command. If you do both of these commands within a specific time, you'll have the time of Rosh's death displayed.

    I suggest using the ? symbol to be used for this marker and am undecided as to whether this marker should also be displayed on the Dota 2 map.
