Default Does anyone of you draws on minimap in Dota 2?


Drawing human genetelia while the last people are loading before the picking phase starts doesn't count.
I have never used nor seen anyone using this function in any helpfull way. I find pinging enough for a head-up.

I draw arrows signaling pushing or ganking routes when I want to let my team know where we are going to push or gank. Pinging only really shows the destination, not the path to it. An arrow does the job better.

I only use it during loading, rest of the time pinging or typing is better. Unless you want to make a path showing how to go somewhere, but the case is very rare.

Arrows to indicate pushing when "push top" feels like rocket science to my team
though the Tic-Tac-Toe idea seems cool

Yes. It makes doing ganks a looooooooot easier since you can point out where your route will be.

Default Re: Does anyone of you draws on minimap in Dota 2?

For helpfulness?
Uh, sometimes instead of pinging or typing, I'll draw a circle around someone on the map, then a line pointing to where I need them. People usually respond to this.

For not being helpful, a lot of times during loading or afk farming, I find myself just scribbling. Not really drawing, just little curves between the towers or circles all over the map. Worst part is I forget people can see me doing it, then I feel bad for covering the map in shit...and for some reason people JOIN me in shitting up the map.

I once told a rusian to cut me the tree with his quelling for double pull. He didn't understand english, then I draw a line from lane to second camp and he understood and cut it.

some people have to draw a d***, its their only chance to imagine how one should look like.

no, i never use the minimap drawing, drawing on minimap is disturbing, it blocks vision,

would love to get the option to toggle draw&blink on/off

Seriously. It was the only way to communicate with them, using arrows to indicate "It's time to fucking push THIS WAY!"

Default Re: Does anyone of you draws on minimap in Dota 2?

If I ever play with some bad players who desperately need calls, I will write M I A in big large minimap-blocking letters.
I can then give them the old response: Why don't you check minimap, noob?
Whereas they will reply: "Lol, noob, reading calls = easier than looking at minimap."
Sounds like a plan.

Default Re: Does anyone of you draws on minimap in Dota 2?

I draw routes most of the time on maps, to alert my ally of possible way the enemy is rushing to gank him. A few pings on the map, Then immediately type "<enemy name or numbers> and RUN"..

This helped a lot of times to avoid ally dying. Because typing miss..doesn't help most of the time.

Default Re: Does anyone of you draws on minimap in Dota 2?

when playing with friends YES alot,

Example:

"I'm coming to gank through top jungle" over skype, followed by a crude line showing where my intended path is so they can prepare.
Or showing the newer guys where to place a ward or where to meet up before a push. A ping often does the trick in this circumstanced though :3

I use it to teach new players. Only problem is, they aren't looking at the minimal most of the times.

In all seriousness, it's one of the more useful new features implementened, and I use it every game to direct ganking and escaping.

As captain, I find it extremely useful to just draw a line, and tell teammates to never cross this line unless I do, or never step into the circle, etc.
