  • [Suggestion] Enemy icon direction indicator

    Right now the enemy icons on the minimap are just X's, and it's hard to tell which direction they are going, unlike the allied icons, which have and arrow pointing out of it, would be nice to have the same on the enemies icons, I made a quick example to show how it could look like:



    This wouldn't remove any "skill", you can tell their direction with the current icons but is really hard, this would just make it quicker to see where the enemy is going instead of having to click the minimap and see for yourself.

      The current minimap icons are really bad, I'd honestly just wait and see what they come up with next.

          Cool. This can also bring some interesting mind games, if they have wards.
          Example: go to top rune, and head to the top lane. Considering the ward range the last minimap arrow should point to the top lane. Then, outside of ward vision turn back toward mid for a gank.

                  This is pretty much my thought, minimap needs a rework.
                  good day, sir.

                          I too commented in the other thread. The current Xs are clearly shaded to show direction, but in the frenzy of an actual game, it's very hard to actually notice it.

                          I like the top combo of X and arrow. The direction needs to be clear, but it needs to remain distinct from the allied ones.
                          I've never played DotA. I don't care how things were done in DotA. This is Dota 2. This is what I care about.
