[QUOTE=Captain Chalky;35713443]Sure would hate to be that one guy who remade Dota 2 items into TF2 now that they have changed some of their looks in the icons.[/QUOTE] He told me he was going to remake all of them to the new item style.
My thoughts on the new UI: The new stats square looks really childish. The big sword along with the boots icon and the spaced out strength, agility, and intelligence counters look like dota 2 is trying to look too much like LoL. The backpack slots look really bland and seem kind of last minute whereas the rest of the UI looks a lot more refined and detailed. The circular glyph button works much better than the old tiny square button. Also it greys out and has a circular timer feature until it's off cooldown which really helps tell how much longer until you can glyph again. I do like the courier icon down in the bottom right that shows which hero the courier is currently going to though. Also, you can use the button to retrieve from stash and transfer items without having to even select the courier. The level up popup's font is too big in such a small box. I don't like when text is touching the edges of a box. Same goes for the hero's name. I preferred when the kill/death/assists were up in the top right. They're not as easily accessible in small font down in the bottom right. Most of the new icons look really good, however there are some that just seem too generic and I am unable to decipher what they are at a short glance. Some examples are Aghanim's Scepter, Magic Wand, Armlet, Satanic, Sange, Manta Style, Boots of Elvenskin, and Force Staff. Also, necronomicon doesn't change much between the three stages and is difficult to tell which state is is a moment's notice. Finally, it seems like they used too much glow/blur/bloom/whatever on some of the icons such as Ring of Bassilus, Talisman of Evasion, Boots of Travel, Hood of Defiance, and Ring of Aquilla. tl;dr: Pros - Courier icon, glyph icon, some of the item icons Cons- Stats area, backpack area, some generic item icons, some bloomed item icons.
I like the look of the new hud, other than the stats area. The items, though, I had to go to the wiki to see what it said several of them were supposed to be. I like how the new Vlad's icon resembles morbid mask, though. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] [url]http://i.imgur.com/0mRs7.jpg[/url] [i]Really[/i] glad the UI changes to this on 4:3 monitors, instead of just sliding the inventory over and not moving anything else around. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] Heaven's Halberd finally having an actual icon is pretty neat, too. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] Stats box looks a bit better in 4:3 mode, imo, since the str/agi/int part isn't as large. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] Edited:
To be honest I actually really like the new item icons. I think they fit the game better. The ui is okay but definitely needs more work.
Yeah, I'm sure once we get used to what's what, it won't be as big of a problem.

The new layout is a bit of a mess design wise, I honestly liked the old item design more, the hud needs to change too, that sword makes me cringe so badly ohgod. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] actually the items aren't that bad but some definitely need work. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] also lolwut [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/r2Tbrl.jpg[/IMG]
[QUOTE=Dierag;35714232]also lolwut [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/r2Tbrl.jpg[/IMG][/QUOTE] It's been like that for a while.

Those icons will be hard to get used to... I'd prefer the old ones though.

-snip, Wood Pecker beat me- I guess it kind of fits better, considering he [b]has[/b] been to hell and back. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] It fits the whole "demonic transformation" thing better, I mean.
I like SOME of the new icons, dislike the UI heavily. [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] [QUOTE=TehWoodPcker;35714498][img]http://i.imgur.com/UDfDN.jpg[/img] OH WOW LION IS THAT YOU BUDDY[/QUOTE] he looks so much more cooler lion, now with 50% more hell
i really like the new one more, but his "beard" part of the new face looks so weird
[QUOTE=Dr.Scrake;35714529]i really like the new one more, but his "beard" part of the new face looks so weird[/QUOTE] He looks like a dinosaur lol.

Lion doesn't have a beard now, this is terrible!
[QUOTE=TehWoodPcker;35714498][img]http://i.imgur.com/UDfDN.jpg[/img] OH WOW LION IS THAT YOU BUDDY[/QUOTE] But.... Purple! [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/kkz78.png[/IMG] [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] 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.
[QUOTE=Potato-Pugilist;35715044]What forum does valve listen to?[/QUOTE] If you want to comment on something and have Valve hear it post on the [URL="http://dev.dota2.com/"]Dev forum[/URL].
Why Lion. :( He even rushed Aghanim's Scepter, talk about salt in the wound.
