In the PvP Discussions we had recently, one of the random QoL requests that came up was a change to the map ping icons. If you're not familiar, you can hold shift and left-click on the map or mini-map to ping one of 5 icons to your party. Because this is a game-wide feature, rather than a PvP one, I wanted to gather some additional information before I try to get new icons made.
How often is this system used? Would it be used more with different icons or do people like the current set of icons?
Our current thought is to do the following:
These are pretty competitive focused. Would you find these more useful than the current ones? If not, do you have ideas for a set of icons that would be more universally useful?
Let us know your thoughts!
