    Replace "X" of the enemyteam by arrow.

    Hello guys,
    sometimes it's hard to see in which direction the enemy team's heroes are running, because they are just a " X ".
    I know, the direction in which they are running is brighter than the others, but for people who play on a darker screen, its hard to see the direction.
    My suggestion/solution for this would be, to replace the "X" by an arrow like this:

    Ofcause not exactly like this, this was made with photoshop in 1 minute.

    Edit: Or maybe we use a triangle like in the Minimap of The Legend of Zelda. For Example like in oot in the bottom right corner: imgthe legend of zelda ocarina of time3.jpg

    It's an X for a reason. So you won't know which way the enemy is facing.

    But the point is, that u can see in which direction they are facing of and where they r going. It's not like its impossible to see in which direction they r facing. Its like i said, the direction where the enemy heroes are going is brighter than the other side of the "X".

    This. In WC3 all heroes were represented by a circle, enemy or not. The arrow-shaped marks in Dota 2 for allied heroes are a nice addition, but not necessary. Doing the same for enemies is even less necessary.

    Also...

    I haven't noticed that yet. I think it should be fixed.

    This! It's an X for that reason. Wouldn't make sense to change it.

    I don't get why would you need it at all, it's obvious what direction they're facing when moving. It's not like heroes can moonwalk.

    Agreed with ^
    It's possible to see where they're facing.

    Please. Remove the turning cross and make it only for allies ? Or make a cross where we can easilly see the direction.

    Available for any game

    +1 for pfeil.png
    I use smaller icons for my cfg(so arrows dont close each other or not taking too much place on the minimap), and crosses look so small that I barely can see the color + crosses just look worse than kind of arrows, even if it's possible to see the direction. And smth. like this could be much more convenient. Don't like that crosses :P.
