[QoL Suggestion] A "swap with me on this node" ping

Hi, I main FB and often I find myself on a node 1v1ing when I would rather be in a team-fight, but because either the point is in my possession or its neutral, I don't want to simply walk away and give it freely to the enemy. I would like a special map ping to indicate a request to my side noder teammate to swap places with me. They still probably won't pay attention to the ping but it would be better than typing in chat.

edit: Think of like the new subway logo but as a map ping.

    as a support fb you shouldn't be 1v1ing no matter what the situation is.

    it would be a great benefit to all if there were a set of pings.

    you don't know till you know, ya know.

    Of course you don't, but it still happens. For instance, a side noder or "bruiser" class is nearby and you're trying to tell him to swap places with you but he's being hesitant.
    This suggestion would also benefit those who know they are in an unfavorable matchup and want to swap out with another team-mate.

  • I though the universal langage for "swap with me" was just to target your ally and leave the point.

    Most people in this game are actually too dumb to understand the concept of swapping for better matchups and get mad when you tell them so, via targeting or otherwise.
