    We NEED better pinging !

    Im okay with grouping me with the russian people in the same team, but pings should been made better before you decided to group people with language barier in same team.
    We need something like in lol, but for few buttons instead.
    1. normal ping
    2. go back, retreat ping
    3. attack ping
    4. missing enemy ping
    5. im coming ping + the possible track from my icon on the map to the pinged ground.

    We really need this few pings, if the game going to keep grouping en players with russ.

    Thank you for the feedback. In my opinion, the normal ping can be used in quite a lot of situations to address different issues. Provided you're on the same page as your ally, his ping will make sense.

    Not really.

    For example.. you are a jungle and you are about to go gank top, you see their jungle take invisibility glyph, so you ping the glyph and then ping top. Your ally top is a russian, and thinks you are going to gank, so he starts heading towards the river to attack their top, You say NO STOP YOU WILL DIE, he doesn't listen and gets destroyed. This can easily happen every game, for any lane.

    If you see enemy jungle bot, and all of a sudden the enemy gold camp top pops up, you are mid and see your enemy mid at 3/4 hp going to the gold camp, you could ping to attack it, but a simple ping means nothing to your team, and start walking there, and others will think they are pinging you to go back... this is simply stupid, could have been an easy kill.

    there are hundreds of scenarios where a simple radial ping system (like LoL uses) could help facilitate better communication, and bring primeworld out of the gutter of niche gaming to actually being well reknown for crossing the language barrier and being competitive in MOBAs..

    Monkeys can ping. Humans give meaning to a ping. really.
    Monkeys can ping, but can they give meaning to a ping?

    ppl always ping me and i have no idea what they want xD

    should i go away ?
    should i come to them ?
    should i do something unspecific ?
    am i going to be ganked ?
    should i gank their lane ?
    should i go back to the tower ?
    should i go back heal ?


    this is the person ping,
    for me it just means "retreat "

    which makes it even weirder when im full health and get pinged
    or the whole enemy team is somehwere else

    ps : also reminds of this story.

    im jungle, ill start moving top from mid seeing the enemy is low,
    ill ping him to show im coming for a gank,

    laner is low as well, as soon as i ping he goes in and kills himself xD
    as im nowhere near top yet

    his comment : he will never listen to me again -.-
    looking at the map is too much work it seems
