Is it only for yourself or does your team mates see it as well?

this feature was used in the mufc vs ok match apparently. It makes no sense if only you can see it so I am assuming that allies can see it as well. Similar to pinging but you can draw the whole routes or something.

They had something similar in HoN back in beta days. People spammed it too much and it got removed. It's a very useful feature, I hope Dota 2 will keep it. Maybe have an option to enable-disable it.

Would love to see it, if it comes with a cooldown. 5 times a minutes. Hate when people spam map ping

Better if there's additional hovering shortkeys to zoom the minimap to game screen, but translucent, just like diablo. That way the doodles can be seen clearer.

I forsee big in-game ROFLMAO creating opportunities for those who skilled on the field of mspaint graphics.

Imagine the player drafting the raped Victim hero after his Wicked sick streak

Okay ontopic: Its a very nice idea and makes the captain's role easier.

That would actually be awesome.
Not only to see them better, but also to draw them better.

for some reason all posts which say interesting are making me lol.

OP: Interesting.

no seriously. It'll make it easier for the captain to outline quick strategies.

Can remember that, it was abused to hell, everyone kept randomly drawing lines on the minimap, it's just way too distracting in pubs.
