: **General complaints** - No mana bars - The basic stats panel looks completely disconnected from everything, it doesn't even have a border - Smaller ally panes, harder to click on when say you're shen and you need to quickly ult an ally. It's even harder to see their health when laning. It's not really an "at a glance" thing anymore to see states. - Moving the buffs to the center isn't a feature, it's a fix for when they moved them away in the first place. They should never have moved them in the first place as it creates a discontinuity. **Minimap** - Instead of having a streamline bar of low priority information in the top right, it's connected to the minimap now adding more bloat. I don't want to know my ping when I look at the minimap, in fact, if I really cared, I would just hit Ctrl+F in game to get the exact number instead of a misleading graphic. - Your entire bottom right half of the screen is obscured by the minimap/ally bars/low priority stats/etc. Before it was manageable, but now it's bloated. Comparing the current UI with the new proposed UI, they new UI significantly increase the area of the screen blocked out by the minimap without actually increasing the size of the minimap. - When I change the size of the minimap, am I also going to increase the size of information I care less about? - The minimap essentially has three borders now and less control. When your camera gets stuck, you can't click the button to fix the damn thing.
I haven't had the time to log in and test the new HUD in-game myself so I'm just posting based on the screenshot. > Instead of having a streamline bar of low priority information in the top right, it's connected to the minimap now adding more bloat. I completely agree with you on this one, adding cs, clock and etc to the minimap just clusters too much not so important information into one place. > Smaller ally panes, harder to click on when say you're shen and you need to quickly ult an ally. It's even harder to see their health when laning. I like this change myself, in the current HUD allied champion status is too far apart from the minimap. Minimap is the main source of game flow and now ally health bars are closer to it, not a screen apart (with map on right side) and I feel it makes tp plays and Shen ults slightly easier. On the negative side the enemy death timers in the same area just serve to create confusion in my opinion, perhaps they could be moved to the left side where current ally status is displayed.
