    Allies Creeps

    Increase it's circle on minimap so you can't confuse them with simple creeps.

    +1 Also player controlled creeps walking past wards are undetectable.

    In my last game, I noticed Chen appearing on the minimap for a gank, because I warded like a boss.
    But what I couldn't see was an Ursa Warrior, that was walking a fairly large distance ahead of him and intercepted me while I was running back to my tower.
    But because I am a boss, I survived the gank.

    The issue is (1) that you can't see 2x2 pixels with you're peripheral vision, and (2) it would be cognitive overload (even though I am a boss) to distinguish between creeps on the minimap based on their position or actively monitor the minimap for 2x2 out of place pixels moving towards you like a raging Ursa Warrior high on Enchantress.

    I don't see a balance issue by making player-controlled creeps appear larger on the minimap, because if you are a true boss you're smoked anyway.

    Real bosses don't gank. See Roshan.

    To the topic at hand, yes, dominated creeps should show up more clearly on the minimap.
