Hey guys, i’d like to discuss a small possible quality of life addition and i’d like some opinions from the community mostly from competitive players. Would anyone prefer to see the color of the class for the Q pings rather than the informational pings that pug games require.
Red is monster spotted
Red is also Assault
That would get extremely confusing
I think having the colour of the class on the outside of the ping wouldn’t be a bad idea. If it’s solid red then it is Assault pinging the Monster. If it is solid yellow then it is Support doing a normal ping. I think that could work.
I don’t know that this is necessary. As @Quirkly said, it would mess up the color coding of the monster and stuff. Also, in a coordinated/competitive team, if somebody is pinging they’re going to be talking about it too.
Changing it up has been discussed before. I believe the most popular alternative was different-shaped, class-specific, pings.
Personally I think pings should be icons.
“I see the monster” Ping=
I could get used to that, less confusion I suppose.
I just think itd be nice for relaying messages, when I make a Mine nest I’d like to have an assault ping so I can relay where they are for the medic instead of pinging like crazy and hoping he/she understands
That would be so helpful. It would certainly make it easier to communicate in pub games. I hope this gets implemented at some point.
Hear that TRS, make me dev, the people like my ideas, halp me halp you, pls ;w;
don´t try. we cant even get windowed fullscreen.
btw this exact same thing was discussed 5 month ago. see how much has happened? yeah.
That would be a bit of an eyesore. Someone spams pings and yay, there’s a massive blob of blue on my screen, yuck. Plus the circles are clean, concise, and don’t make me freak out with ridiculous asymmetry.
But yeah, could work.
Or use mics. Always that option
