    Coordinating movement In team games (especially Survival Games) is really hard, once you loose line of sight to your teammates (e.g. while looting a chest) it can be really difficult to re-group again and using the text-chat to send directions is not always an option (mainly because it is slow).

    My suggestion is that your teammates are highlighted when you sneak (like if they have been hit with a spectral arrow, but obviously only visible to yourself).

    This makes finding teammates way easier and I think it would be really helpful and would add a nice mechanic to team games.

    Thoughts/Opinions/Improvements?

    +1 This would give random teams a better chance versus teams that are on ts/skype.

    I don't really like this idea. SurvivalGames, especially in a TEAM mode, should be a strategised gamemode with you and your teammate. This includes a lot of communication, and if one of you get lost, then you need to communicate with each other to find a rendezvous point. If this suggestion is added, it will completely defeat the point of communication.

    I don't see any reason why this shouldn't be added. Only one comment, though. This shouldn't be added to every gamemode. Paintball, for example, doesn't need this at all. In Eggwars, Skywars, Survival Games and Lucky Islands this would be cool. ;)

    Not true. Things like "i need a sword" or "i spotted an enemy" are still needed (and lets be real random teammates do not communicate anything in most of the games)

    Thanks! Glad you like it. On sky-based games (Eggwars, Skywars) I would suggest highlighting teammates not when you sneak (because you do that a lot in these gamemodes), but when you hold a player tracker in your hand, that way is a bit less annoying, although also inconsistent with survival games.

    I also think this is a great idea. Quite often your with someone who speaks a different language, or someone who doesn't use chat, And you end up playing a solo game.

    Great idea +1, I'm not saying this could be added, but what if you could do that for enemies, in eggwars like an enemy gets spectral effect when their egg is destroyed, so they will not hide.

    I think this is very useful, but it would avoid situations where a player should have died due to going away from their team. There have been times where I have said for my team to meet up in mid, and then they got intercepted and killed. With this that would not have happened.

    Also it would be pretty easy to tell if a teamate is being chased since they will keep running, so make it so that if you are in combat your teamates can't sneak to see you, and you can't sneak to see them. +1

    +1 from me, I like the idea because it would be very useful when your not directing communicating with your team (like skype or discord)
