Suggestion : Let people draw plans on the minimap in clan battles.
Not in ranked or random battles obviously because people would draw penises.

I second and approve.

 

Also, i don't see a problem with having that in randoms and ranked as well,  cause due to the continues Chat bans, i'd really need a new way of making my opinion about certain players known and drawing on the minimap would help me there.

 

Also, male genitalia shouldn't be a problem,  cause most players wouldn't know what it looks like anyways. 

 

 

Besides, you can draw d*cks on the minimap just by clicking 5 quadrants in quick succession. 

 

No, i want to get creative on tje minimap...:Smile_trollface:

Actually I remember there was a mod for that.. 

not sure If thats for ships or tanks.. but I've used it for a while..

Too bad only others with the mod installed could see that. 

Than after an update it broke the UI.. then I removed it. 

But I agree.. It would be great.. especially for CB

We used to have map drawing on a toggable layer in PlanetSide and PlanetSide 2. But there it was reserved for group leaders. And yes, they drew phallic objects and such a lot for laughs. But when it was needed to coordinate they would use it proper.

 

If you want this in game, it's definitely good for coordination, so clan wars and ranked could benefit.

 

However, it needs to be more sophisticated than that:

 

1. Every player should have their own layer and assigned colour and these layers must be easily toggable on/off both together and per player so spam and tactical info can be filtered to when you want to see it and from who.

2. Colours must have appropriate contrast. (colour blind option)

3. Width of brush stroke must be proportionate so it doesn't block too much map info

4. Minor text editor required (people can't write for crap with mouse), texts must be possible to be altered

5. Proper eraser tools for specific bits and sections

 

I'd also argue to only give this to division leaders in random matches. Why? Divisions are on average more coordinating players. Not always true, but coordinating around a division's plan can result in better teamwork overall.

 

Offensive use of the tool should be possible to report however. Reporting should take a screenshot of the map at the time of reporting, showing that player's tactical layer and send it to GMs for review.

you can always have this in div chat only so you can still do it in randoms but only your div mates can see it, same goes for pings if we get div pings only that will be great.
