    Let us draw on the real map, and appear it on the minimap

    Hey, this is a nice addon in my opinion,

    let us be able to hold CTRL + Mouse to draw on the REAL map, but the lines appear on the minimap. This will make things more accurate, and if you would like to draw around a tower you would just point your mouse at it,

    and draw around it, on the minimap a round circle would appear at the green/red tower.


    Currently, you can't do it. Only draw on the minimap, not on the map.

    +support.

    Applying some form of line/curve smoothing would be great too.

    People might spam up the map so much others can't see.

    they can spam it much easier using the minimap already.

    I'm not sure that you could draw anything that's really recognizable on the minimap with just the width of one screen. I think a ping does a good enough job in this case.

    But if it'll just be optional, then go for it.
    Change has kept DotA alive, evolving, and improving since 2002. And now DotA has an entire new engine at it's disposal, with infinite new capabilities.

    So why are there so many DotA fundamentalists/conservatives that oppose new features, options, and information?

    Embrace the change.

    Thing is that control is already used for multiple unit selection. You might assign another hotkey, but doesn't seem viable for the battle since most ctrl, shift 'n alt are already assigned to specific roles.

    I think it's a great idea. To avoid misuse, all you have to do is make it easily toggleable, pretty much like chat mute. This could be a fantastic feature for more competitive play, and would mitigate the necessity of microphone use for communicating game plans & quick execution.

    OP is talking about writing over real terrain, not just in the minimap

    Op is talking about writing over the real terrain but being visible on the minimap, not in the terrain.
