  • end-of-match item drops are confusing

    The way the end-of-match shows item drops with a dramatic sound and visual effect for each one is very confusing for players. I've been explaining to people in public chat that no, they didn't get each one of those items, only the ones with your small, easily-ignorable name underneath them.

    This is very misleading interface design, why would people care about other people's drops? at the very least make it so other people getting drops aren't accompanied by any sort of effect, maybe grey them out.

      Agreed, the names should pop out and be colored distinctly, so someone is immediately aware that they did or did not get an item. The way it currently is, the player's name just looks like some generic info text hooked up to the item, that people completely gloss over.

            sounds reasonable to me, it encourages trading without having to search and visit thirdparty forums

              I agree. How it looks is you getting that item when really another player is. There should be a way to indicate whether you got an item or another person did.

                We just need their names written with the colors of their player slot. Much easier and we won't quickly at first glance mistake it as a random generic item description.

                  I was wondering why my skirt turned into a top-knot, didn't wait around to see just clicked out before it all showed I guess. Maybe in a big window show what you got and have a "see what others got this match" tab underneath or like some rotating display table with the items if you wanna be fancy like you seem to be doing recently.

                      It's just sad.
                      Like the game pokes you in the face with an item that you DID NOT get, but someone else did (promoting shop, so it's intended most likely :P)

                        It's not that confusing at all. When you actually get your first item, the item pops up on your screen right in front of you before dropping down to the little box.

                          After winning your first item there is no confusion anymore... Left items are what you won, right items are what others won.

                              Threads like these make me lose faith in humanity.
