I would like to draw on the minimap but all i archived so far is pinging and pinging with a message (like top is missing). Some people in chat told me i need to double click something but i just did not get it.

Could someone please explain it in detail what i need to do to draw on the minimap?

Furthermore can i draw freely on the map or only in straight lines? (I only saw lines so far)

  • @WizLiz yes ctrl + leftclick does not work.

Alt+Left Click the minimap as if you were pinging, and immediately 'ping' again on another part of the map. It'll draw a white, straight line. You can add a 3rd 'ping' for a 2nd straight line.

To my knowledge, the lines cannot be shaped or curved, etc.

You also have to give it a few seconds before re-drawing, presumably to prevent people from spamming it.
