    Hero and Allied Coloring

    Currently, it's very hard to distinguish between enemy and allied heroes, both on the screen and the minimap.

    HoN is in a dire need of allied color templates, like we have in Warcraft 3. In War, you can choose to see only Red and Blue colors, instead of the 10 different colors on the map and on the screen.

    Every player have a brain (I think ?!) and memorising the ennemis heroes shouldn't be a problem... for new players it's a little difficult to know who is who I agree, but after some games I'm sure they'll be ok. (like I did)

    And about the color feature... I think it's already available (I didn't use it yet) on the minimap there is a little icon for that

    To be fair when I started HoN it was difficult for me to point out enemies as well. I think the red line is too thin until you get used to it (when you hover the mouse over an enemy). Not sure how one would go around this, though.

    They forgot to make your own hero a different color though

    I would like some kind of aura effect around heroes/creeps. This would make watching games much more comfortable to beginners.
    If a normal gamer watches a tournament stream of CS or Starcraft they have usually no problem to track what unit is in Team A or Team B, but with games like warcraft it becomes hard, especially when many units are involved.
    Atleast in replays or as spectator some option to change this would be appreciated.

    There is a button on the minimap that changes all allies to green and enemys to red (i may have the colors flipped because i dont use it)
