It is really hard to tell the difference between friend or foe on the minimap.
As it is today then the ring on the minimap shows which team he is on and the color inside the ring shows which player it is as far as I know.
So I would surgest that you switch the color on the ring with the color inside the ring because I would rather know if I am running into a friend or foe rather than which player it is or at least make it more clear who is friend or foe.
i think it's fine as it is ... shouldn't one get used to what colors are on what team pretty fast?
i think the color is much more important because it NOT ONLY can help you (with the proper use of memorization) tell if it's a friend or foe, but also whether it's an ally with a stun, for instance, that is valid to help you gank the enemy behind you, or just that feeder noob who'll let you die and himself be eaten by the baddie afterwards
Maybe a different shape, e.g. a triangle for enemies, for the color blind folk.
actually i got no problem with the current minimap.
but to have the enemies shown as triangles as somebody mentioned seems nice, and a good way for beginners to clearly see the difference even if they dont know the colors
While we're at it, the colour circles under the heroes need to be bigger. It a big battle it's really hard to tell who is who.
Can we use the "bigger reticules under heroes" thing with the triangles even if we're not colorblind...and just stupid sometimes?
