I think we really need a clock ping. Cos right now there's no way to clearly inform my teammates that my key spells are on cooldown. I usually use the yellow/danger ping on myself hoping that they will realize I'm not ready, but more often than not teammates take a fight regardless which usually ends up in defeat. What other useful pings do you guys think we need?

Why not just use a chat system? Too many pings would make things too complicated IMO.

I think that they could have a couple "Hot Phrases" like "No" or "Rotate Up/Down" Something needs to change for the better with these pings tho.

I do think that phrases would be nice, but I do think that the current pings allow a pretty good degree of communication for how simple they are (especially when you want to flame someone :) )

Eh I'd say predefined words over pings would be good.
"Yes"
"No"
"Danger"
"Missing"
"Wait"
"Target"
They'd still be able to be applied onto the map and other players like pings, though.

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

That's a pretty good idea. The only problem is that the words would have to be translated across other languages, which might result in their intended meanings being lost in the process.

I think pings like "Wait" or "Heal Me" with more specific meanings that can't be left to interpretation would fix a lot of confusion and improve gameplay/teamwork. Another way to fix this would be to specify the existing ping's meanings by either changing them or releasing a, "ping guide" to help players know what pings mean. Maybe even a chat would help! I know this will never happen, and the idea is already out there, but it would be nice.

I think certain pings for certain hero's would be help full such as a invis ping for flicker then everyone knows that there going invisible.
