: Sounds like a good idea but if it had more options those dont really help you in game. for example "may i have blue" " i'm stuck under tower may you help" "can you cover lane i have to back" just stuff that will help you in lane. sounds like a great idea but that doesn't help unless it's late game
I see, I put the ETC... for suggested messages, I'll have to add more soon, but you get the general idea.

I love how we came up with this Idea I really hope it gets added but I don't feel that it should be a Legendary skin unless it has unique particle effects or something because look at "Goal Keeper Blitzcrank" he has something similar but no custom sounds or animations.

: [IDEA] New Advanced Pings
Hey, I already suggested a Warded ping and multiple of these I got about 370 votes on mine and a Rioter commented on it. I dont think your suggestion is necessary because mine is already far more ahead.

: A "thank you" ping would be really good for the community, if you could target allies it could say "your name" thanks "target's name". This is a social game after all and since typing thank is often not viable this could help people be more friendly in matches. Plus, if you make it a hotkey option rather than in the wheel people can put it in some mostly unused key and if you don't like it don't use it. I like the warded ping idea a lot too, the ult one is meh but if you could ping an enemy to say "their champion's name flash is down" that IS pretty useful during laning phase specially for the jungler to know where to gank.
Yes! That is one of the Ideas I forgot about when making the Thread we really need a Thank You Ping. though you can quickly type TY for or something related it could take anywhere from a half a second to even 3 seconds and thats alot of time in a fast paced game of LoL.
: I like the idea of a few more smart ping options (warded especially would be useful), but I'd be worried that increasing the radial options from 4 to 8 would actually result in a lot more mis-pings than we currently have. That said, it doesn't seem like an unsolvable issue, and there are definitely ways to improve the smart ping system. Might end up replacing redundant/underused pings or finding another good keybinding for any additional pings that would be useful. Thanks for the suggestion/feedback. This is not a promise (as I don't work on the smart ping system personally) but i'll bring this to the attention of the people that do. -Scruffy
I love that you like my ideas, the only Ping I really want added to the game is the warded ping. Maybe we could remove the middle of the ping wheel for easy access or maybe have the ping only appear when over a bush or something like that. Like I said it would help out the slow typers or the people that don't even tell their teamates that a bush is warded. Thanks for taking a look at my thread <3
: Great idea. Also it would be nice if they made the ping noises sound more different from each other than they currently do. If there's a decent way to make them all recognizable by sound that would be absolutely awesome.
Thats a great idea!

: More pings BUT on a different shortcut. It'll be too fiddly if they're all on one key and people will get confused and there will be many mis-pings.
Like I said in the other replies. That ward wheel is just to pain an image that this thread is about new pings. I'd rather there be multiple ping wheels or different shortcuts for the different pings.

> The Warded Ping would be awesome. A "Warded" with "Ward" option for planting, and killing ward's. Even though it's bad for gold/build I always buy sightstones, (even as adc) and it help's if you can ping for someone to kill the light's when you're trinket is on cd or to put some up when the darkness makes the map daunting. Not only will it give our team some more communication and strategy, it will also reduce the waste of the Red Trinket

: I'd definitely like to be able to at least <mod>-click my long cd abilities to announce the cooldown in chat.
Yes, aswell. Similar to the feature in Dota 2.
: New Pings.
Bump Love all of these opinions and Ideas!
: I love this idea, I'm so tired of pinging something and typing in chat "warded xxx (time)" and having someone ask why I pinged... -_-
Yes, this is one of the main reasons I thought of the warded ping, it would end ping confusion and it would reduce typing time.
: I like the idea but I feel like what your image demonstrates is too much. Especially for new players it would be very confusing. The time that your ult is up in I think should be next to the summoner picture. The one that I think would be really nice, however, is the warded one. The flash and enemy ult is down would be too confusion when it comes to which champion you're targeting.
I see exactly where you are coming from, I just threw that image up there to illustrate "something" near what I would like Riot to add.
Edgaca (NA)
: They should be separated into 4s. 4 on "G" and 4 on "V". G is more "go now" and V is more "Danger"
I really like this idea.
: these are some of the best idea i ever seen in league
I know, I love seeing all of the thought people are putting into this thread!
: i can sum this up as to why it wouldn't happen in two words... to complicated... Im sorry to be the downer but it is the truth. The game is fast paced and when a particular ping means the difference between staying alive and dying having the wrong ping go off would be bad. to implement such a complex system the current ping wheel (see what i did there) would need to double in size. At that point it would become extremely obtrusive to the user. It would also take much more thought time compare to live in order to select the right ping, in a fast paced game having to take the time to make sure you are going to use the right ping is a no go. the idea is a good one, it is simply to difficult to implement well. If this is not enough of an explanation as to why let me know and I can get into the real nitty gritty of it.
I see where you are coming from, but that example of the giant ping wheel was just "something" I'd like to see on the rift. I have come to the conclusion that there is one ping we need right now or possibly with the new rift update. The "Warded" Ping. Maybe they could replace the little circle in the middle of the wheel with it. Maybe the Ping could pop up "ONLY" when your cursor is over a bush or something that allows wards to be hidden or where players could be hiding. Maybe it does it over a bush when you press the V key instead of the traditional G so you can still use your normal pings. Though this system does seem a bit complicated I'm sure riot could come up with something to have it in the game without taking up too much space or memorization. > i can sum this up as to why it wouldn't happen in two words... to complicated... > > Im sorry to be the downer but it is the truth.

: I feel that it is a good idea however, it is too much information crammed onto a small wheel. Some of the components were nice and should be kept, such as "warded". Maybe riot could use other letters on the keyboard? I feel it would help reduce the clutter on that wheel.
Well, that ping wheel up there was just an example of "something" I would like to see on the rift. I think that riot should add a whole other ping wheel on a different key maybe replacing the V ping wheel with pings such as Warded, ETC.
John5025 (NA)
: Imo, the red exclamation mark and the yellow, caution ping (ctrl-click?) are redundant. We can replace one of these pings with a ward ping? Edit: to clarify, yellow ping is not referring to yellow question-mark.
I feel the same way but those 2 pings are really important for communication we use the yellow ping for MIAs that saves so many lives I wouldnt be able to keep track of it. The red ping we use it for telling our teamates that the enemy team is coming or the jungler is there (thats what I usually use it for.). I was just thinking of the idea of adding a whole other ping wheel filled with different pings.
yololex (NA)
: It seems people are taking a liking to the ward pings.. Maybe even just adding those would be nice.
Yes, the ward pings are everyone's favorite I am so glad I could think of something like that. I hope Riot sees this thread and determines by our support of the ping I hope they add it in.
tau43 (NA)
: Mainly I just want the Warded and the Ult down pings.
Aswell, The warded ping is by far the best and would save lives or stop wasting the junglers time and it would just totally reduce the amount of time it takes to stop and type.
Turkstyx (NA)
: It's a good idea, but I think in it's current state as shown it's too much info and too cluttered. The pings are 4 directions as they are in order to be forgiving to fast mouse movements, when you add more outlets and more options, it becomes too cluttered and too easy to create mistakes. I like the idea of the warded ping for sure, and maybe for ults they could perhaps add the friendly ult timers like they were originally going to with curse voice? I mean, they put in the jungle timers, and other mobas (namely Dota) have that feature as well. Doesn't seem like it would take anything away from the gameplay imo
That ping wing in the Image was just an example of what we could make of the pings I agree that there should be 2 different ping wheels one on G and one on V.
: New Pings.
(Bump & Update) I love all of this great feedback, I have read some awesome Ideas. I think I might add some of my favorite ideas from this thread into the actual thread with the source of where it came from. Thank you for all of your support!

Meddler, will we ever get another "Jester" champion like Shaco {{champion:35}} . Shaco is one of my favorite champions but we barley ever see one of the rift (Most of the ones we see aren't very good anyways). I'd love to have another Jester champion on the rift, maybe he could be Shaco's good twin that could have an support skill set to be able to create illusions on his teammates health to make it look like they have less health than they actually do. I'd love to see a skill or multiple illusion skills on a Jester champion. Jesters and illusions go together like bread and butter :D.
