After having read Mr_Burrows nice threadI sort of stole an idea worth its own thread:

 

Couple radio range with the chat!

 

Anyone dead or out of radio range? You won't read them or see their pings.

Maybe even allow for intensity changes - like stronger signals from people near you and going to the edge of radio range it fades off.

That would also allow for better communication of the battlefield with the standard shortcuts.

 

Any ideas about this? ^.^

I just played a game in which some cretin pinged the map from start to finish.  

I can't recall ever getting any useful communications from anyone ever in game

Apart from toons of course

Sometimes people write where arty hit them from - or where some of those romulan tds are approximately ^^

I tend to do this. Helps people be more aware of where the dangers are. Especially with the stealth TD's. 

Edit: Note that you can block ping-spammers rather easy, hoover over the chat & an x with blocking option appears (hard to do midfight of course but often these ping-spammers go at it since the countdown and then you can block them with ease)
