In the in-game gui, there is a circle near each allied portrait. I've seen it be either gray or green; what is the meaning of that circle? As far as I know, it's not saying whether the friend is connected. (On that note, how can I find out how many players are currently playing in game? (i.e., how many are disconnected?)

enter image description here

In this picture, the first circle is black/gray and the rest three are green.

    @raven just found that in google images, I didn't have time to play a full game just for a screenshot! – Ali1S232 Jun 11 '11 at 4:27

These are the ultimate indicators! If they are full and green, it means that character's ultimate is ready to be used.

As far as I know, there is no in-game way to determine if your allies have disconnected or not.

    Ooh, this is actually a cool thing to learn. Sure helps more than relying on forgetful teammates to cry out "Ult up!" – Grace Note Jun 15 '11 at 15:30
