The minimap shows where you are and as of January 30th, 2018, also shows your territory. As of September 4th, 2019, territory on the map blinks when it's lost, making it easier to see when and where other players are attacking your base. There are also some insignificant bugs relating to the minimap. Like for example, when your minimap shows that a piece of base (mostly in the middle) is still not part of your territory, even though said 'piece of nothing' is already part of your territory. This is a minor bug.
