[QUOTE=Potato-Pugilist;35715044]What forum does valve listen to?[/QUOTE] Go to the Dota 2 Dev forums. By the way, my opinions on the new UI: [url]http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=32261&p=187910&viewfull=1#post187910[/url]
The icons remind me of an early 2000s era RPG game. In a bad way.

I like new UI , old UI looks very poorly [url]http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/File:Phantom_Lancer.png[/url] Lancer is done i think
[QUOTE=Hobbax;35715308][url]http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/File:Phantom_Lancer.png[/url] Lancer is done i think[/QUOTE] That's old, back from an update a week or so back. His portrait most likely has changed since then but nothing in the files.
Lancer looks like those guys from avatar.
We lost to a carry cm [editline]25th April 2012[/editline] 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. wat
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. [QUOTE=RagerTrader;35714621]But.... Purple!

what the fuck valve, this new icon looks slightly different, not touching it ever again.
[QUOTE=l l;35716143]They look so fucking good, the people crying about the new art are pathetic.[/QUOTE] I can see why people would think they look off, but on the new HUD they look fucking great. [editline]26th April 2012[/editline] But Satanic and Divine Rapier look retarded. They look like fish.
Satanic looks like a strip of moldy beef jerky with teeth and eyes... [editline]26th April 2012[/editline] Mek looks a lil bit too futuristic imo.

[QUOTE=Mech Bgum;35716333]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[/QUOTE] When I 1st saw the picture from the shop with my friends, we were all like "Is that a new item??" 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.

Won't repost them here because they're rather long and I cover pretty much every item. :v:
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.

[QUOTE=lotusking;35716704]i have a 300 by 300 resolution FUCK VALVE VALVE THEY WONT CATER TO MY ANCIENT TECHNOLOGY!!![/QUOTE] yeah, lets not give a fuck about anybody who use any resolution lower than 1920*1080, because why the hell you want to support big part of your community, that's just retarded. 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!
