On a more serious note I like lion's new design. Makes him look more intimidating and less like a purple oompah-loompah who masturbates too much.
Everyone will get use to the new HUD within two weeks.
Not really a big deal IMHO
I love the new hud, but the art style on the item icons seriously reminds me of riot (league of bad game) art
Let's save the old icons before tomorrow night, and in three months, send them to Valve for a brand new consmetic in the Dota 2 Store !
I really like the new UI.
Can't say that I feel the same with the item icons, thankfully most are probably going to change.
What forum does valve listen to?
i like the new design of the new hud and i haven't seen the new item icons yet.
Why Lion. :(
He even rushed Aghanim's Scepter, talk about salt in the wound.
The icons remind me of an early 2000s era RPG game. In a bad way.
New images for lancer, pretty cool.
and new ui is bad
Lancer looks like those guys from avatar.
We lost to a carry cm
And played my worst game of pugna with 0/14/12
A lot of portraits got changed too, Lycan's was made better, Brewmaster's got zoomed out some, and a few looked to be bugged(their textures looked scaled down in graphic quality(Tinker, Sniper, Shadow Demon))
Holy shit we are finally back. Woo. Also I found my only real complaint with the hud. If you are controlling multiple units you can't see your stats. I find that kind of annoying. Not a huge issue but still quite annoying.
Also I feel bad for the enemy team when I random my best hero.
HOLY FUCK WE'RE BACK. I didn't realize it at first because my gut reaction every time I open Chrome is to come here.
I played four games today. Two were total failures and I really tried. The other two I played Bloodseeker and rushed an Abyssal Blade and I played Lion and rushed a Dagon and gave no fucks.
Okay, so i started playing Kunkka. He isn't a ganker. I couldn't see the potential. All my matches ended with 0/14 kd. Really frustrating, but i like kunkka so i keep playing.
The new HUD and icons look super nice, I don't get the hate for them.
Watch his fucking cursor lmao.
what the fuck valve, this new icon looks slightly different, not touching it ever again.
Satanic looks like a strip of moldy beef jerky with teeth and eyes...
Mek looks a lil bit too futuristic imo.
i like some of the new icons, i hate most of the new icons.
ui and and lion are nice.
WTF IS THE GEM ICON I DONT EVEN
It didn't look like a gem of any sort after all, so it took us 5 mins to figure out what it was.
I don't know what you guys are on about, the new icons look amazing.
New icons are fucking horrible, they look like fucking mess on low resolutions.
Why the hell they even changed them, old ones was so clear and recognizable from first glance, but no WE NEED MORE BLOOM AND GLOW AND DARK NOW, EVERYTHING SHOULD GLOW, BCUZ IT'S CEWL.
look at fucking reaver - i can't even see what's there, besides this small yellow glow on the end.
I though Robe of magi supposed to be blue - it's +int item after all, but wait, add yellow on it, and green background, just because.
This shit better be some joke.
new HUD is ok though.
main thing in UIs are usability, not cool looks, and this new icons are unusable compared to old ones, because they don't have distinct silhouettes, they look like colored blobs
Am I the only one who thinks the new UI and icons are fantastic?
Looking at your screenshots, I can see what you mean, but it's really not so bad that you won't know what item you're looking at.
It's just a bit of an inconvenience. Probably won't be a big deal as you just get use to how the icons look.
I liked the cleaner look of the old HUD new one looks too busy and overdone with gradients. The fact that's a bit smaller is great though. I'd wish the portrait was larger too, at least on widescreen monitors. Really minuscule problems, i'd probably forget what these beta HUDs look like by the time it's released.
Love the new item icons, glad they're all follow one same art pattern.
No business but WAR,
No family but DEATH,
No mercy but the GRAVE!
