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.

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!"
