So basically, just show what colors all on your team are on the upper left corner. Maybe not like how I did with MSPaint but add some kind of indicator.
Sometimes maybe you temporary forgot who's who and it's more pleasing when others are watching too.
I'm shocked S2 didn't add this from the beginning, like come on lol.
So even if I know what heroes are on my team, why do I have to scroll where they are to see which color are which hero?
Come on, this would take ZERO effort for S2 to code and would be sweet in the beginning of the game, as well as the whole game for spectators.
Some examples how this can look:
Half-circles (kinda discreet)
Whole Circles (less discreet, but able to see color indicators by simply leering at them)
Here's 2 great examples by Snikker:
Half-circles again (but more blurred out)
Colors around level indicators
Having all allies in the right color order can be confusing as you're not always Blue or Pink. If you're on Legion side and are Teal for example, you have to think in this order Teal > Blue > Purple > Yellow > Orange. And why the heck do you need to do calculations just to know who's who, when there can be a little harmless indicator there instead?Given that the player hero icons are not randomized into order but go from blue to orange (Legion) and from pink to brown (Hellbourne) its quite easy for me to remember at all times everyones colour by having a glance at the order/hero and just by rememberting what colour I am.
It could be a little round icon on the left, it could also be a border around the rounded avatar. Perhaps both, with a selector option in the interface options menu.
The exact implementation seems messy. A coloured dot doesn't look right. I'd prefer it as a coloured border or aura or somesuch.
but the concept is sound
Brilliant idea. T-up.
EDIT: Wow this thread got moved back to the suggestion forum from the Archive, and I didn't even request it.. thanks mods!

Thanks for the support hzzzln, I appreciate it.
`Goo, thanks for the vote and I respect your opinion. I never noticed they were in the right order, but I have to say though, I think it is a little confusing when you're not Blue or Pink yourself, then the order is all screwed up.
I think this would be a great idea, not only would it be fast to implement, but it looks cool and its especially helpful for newcomers into the game.
Don't see what harm could arise from this =D
Voted yes - nice job thinking of the idea :P
Yeh I love it. Always hate when I have to look up who is what color etc, this would simplify everything!
ps; ring > dot
I like this idea. I like having my allies green and my allies red to keep it simple on the battle field. Having another indicator of specific player colors would be nice.
