The Ping Wheel

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), Retreat (Left), Assist Me (Down) or On My way (Right)
  • Press V to ping retreat.

These pings can be used both on the map and on your field of vision (like pointing out where an invisible Zeratul or Nova is.)



Messages[edit | edit source]

The pings will send out different lines depending on the ping used and the target being pinged.

    • If that enemy is outside of allied vision, a chat message will inform allies that the Hero is missing.
