I'm sure everyone uses the map while towering/rolling to keep track of where you are or where you want to go. You can identify where you are in the area by looking at where the chess piece is.
The map button is a useful function isn't it
Teaming up and rolling with other players is quite common in our PG. Straying away from your team, i.e. team accidentally rolling on without you, is something saddening When this happens to me, my team would usually wait for me to catch up or if the opposite happens, vice versa.
I was thinking, the map could display my team too, and so I wrote this thread I don't think this is game breaking in any way. It's just an easier way to find your team-mates. Just like the chess piece representing yourself, your team-mates could have another chess piece.
Like I stated in the picture, it's just an example. The team-mate piece could be of a different color or shape. This is just an idea from me, a simple suggestion I thought about.
The map could also display where boss monsters are. Maybe a special chess piece for roaming bosses like Fenrir and Sleipnir. I know the Japan PG [artifact.jp/guardian/] has a "Live Camera" which sometimes shows where these roaming monsters are. Showing where they are on the map, making them easier to hunt would be nice. Although that would surely take out the surprise when they appear in the same spot as you and the epic boss music starts to play
