Players have methods of communicating with your team without chatting by using Pings. To ping you can:
- Press Alt then Click on the screen or minimap
- Hold Alt or G which brings up a radial ping menu to say: Danger (Up), Defend (Left), Assist Me (Down) or On My way (Right)
- Press V to ping retreat.
Messages[edit | edit source]
The pings will send out different lines depending on the ping used and the target being pinged.
Using the Party Frame[edit | edit source]
Players can use Alt + Click at the Party Frame to generate various callouts.
- Alt-clicking an ally's Hero portrait inform teammates that that ally needs assistance.
- Alt--clicking a dead Hero's portrait will generate a chat message indicating that Hero's remaining respawn time.
- Alt-clicking an enemy Hero portrait will ping that Hero's location on the Minimap if they are within allied vision.
- If that enemy is outside of allied vision, a chat message will inform allies that the Hero is missing.
- Alt-click the Team Level to indicate when both teams are on even Talent tiers, or when one team has a Talent tier advantage over the other.
