    [Suggestion] Show runes on the minimap

    It would be helpful if runes showed up on the minimap when your team has vision on them. So you could glance at the minimap and see "oh, there's a haste rune on bottom".

    Do you have a good reason why it shouldn't be there?

    Great idea! Oooh yeah let's also add an alert whenever an enemy hero appears on the minimap too because I can't be bothered learning map awareness

    That alert would happen all the time and the information would be barely usable. Anyway, map awareness includes looking at the minimap to gain information. What you are talking about is deliberately making it more difficult to be aware of what is happening on the map and demanding more busywork.

    What do you see on the minimap already? Creeps, heroes, wards, hero illusions, towers, buildings, couriers. What do they all have in common? They're easily understandable at a glance, important to the game, and convey information to your team gained by scouting. They show you the overall state of the map without requiring you to click around. Runes fit in with this exactly and it makes perfect sense for them to appear on the minimap. If you think leaving off these items from the minimap makes "map awareness" more important and increases the depth of the game, perhaps you'd like to consider further improvements like removing towers and creeps from it as well. You now have to click around to see what's going on! That makes it more pro, right?

    Did you ever think that the absence of the rune on the minimap in the original DOTA was an engine limitation and not a deliberate design choice?

    -1 This can mess up the game in mid. U can just place wards and there's only 2 spots where it can spawn from. It spawns every 2 mins. There's no need for this.
