I Booted up the PBE today and was met with a pleasant surprise - the launcher seemed to have gotten an overhaul.
Now -- I think it looks good, but I feel like it lacks some of that LoL profiling. You know - gold and blue, detailed edges around boxes, etc. Ever since the alpha client was released I've loved that design, and I don't think Riot should abandon it just yet.
I think using the League of Legends icon instead of the full logo is an improvement though. And the extra space for the 'sign in' area is great UX/UI. But again, it's just a tiny bit flat for my taste.
_I might just be too used to the old colors though._ What do you think? Is the new design too bland or just perfect?
