    It doesn't feel like a game dashboard, more like a terribly designed website.

    Here are my concerns:
    • There is a lot more dead space than there was before.
    • It doesn't even feel like a lobby anymore which I thought was an awesome feel when you first started up the game. This feels like starcraft 2 UI which is NOT a good thing. I can see how you want to change the way it looks but keeping the same layout would be better. Everything made so much sense where it was before. Friends should be next to chat, not under. Chat should be larger and centered, not such a tiny box on the side, etc.
    • Why are the loss/abandon gone? It's not like others could see it, why hide it from me?
    • Top live matches are gone, which is a downer. I liked them on my front page.
    • The number of players online is also gone, it's a nice thing to have I don't know why it's gone now.

    What a constructive way to start your post...

    All you had to do was leave out that first line.

      Meh, that's just how I feel about it. The layout is an abomination. I removed it though because you are probably right.

        You're not alone. I personally hate it too. I liked the old one, this one just seemed cluttered and weird. To top it off, some character portraits look really stupid now. Ursa warrior repping that camera below the waist and not fitting on the entire portrait. Etc. I liked the old dashboard. Simple, effective, and gets the job done just fine.

            i agree. the new dashboard is a bit ugly :/ i prefer the old one. the old was really nice and used all the space, this one cramped everything in and made everything small.....

              I really like the re-design/refinements of some stuff. I just wished that they refined the old dashboard because it was really nice having a lobby. It almost feels like bnet right now which is not a good thing.

                I feel like what is really missing from this UI is the ability to manually personize it to your liking. Some people might want their chat bigger or placed in the bottom like before ect. It really is a cool UI thought, good job
                The world is black and white. On one side there are those who are right, complain about valve, spam unhelpfully and everyone who disapprove what you are doing are obviously valveknights.

                  1. new dash: looks busy, too much space wasted for the background and the background itself is just ugly. but on a good way
                  2. trading card style is totally NOT what dota needs. the old hero selection was way better.
                  3. new learn hero portraits are looking 10x worse than the onces we had before.
                  4. ogre looks like he is still in beta. but i think he will turn out to look just awesome.

                  i mean, it is really nice to see that valve tries to implement innovative new features but they shouldn't keep all of them (like the upcoming patch).

                    This is pretty much spot on.

                      This.
                      Kind of feels like a fan made photoshop job. Nice touch with the spectator thing in the background though, but not really worth the trade I dont think

                        I think the new dashboard has too much "white space" since everything has been kind of shrunk down.

                        The moving background is distracting to me unlike the one that was in games like Left 4 Dead. I think it is because that there is actually info I want to see in the Dota 2 dashboard so it is just distracting while trying to do that.

                        I don't care for the new pick screen but I am not a new player to Dota 2(or the original Dota) so I don't need the sorting option. This might be useful for newer players though, so don't want to dismiss it offhand as it looks polished. I would like the option to set it to default to grid though.

                          My (mostly negative) personal feelings:

                          So much dead space! Who decided that utilizing space was a bad idea?

                          I don't want to see a blog post when I open my game. If I had any intention of web-surfing, I would use my web browser, not hop into DotA 2 so I could check out the latest blog.

                          I don't like that chat and friends are now smaller. This gives them less presence and makes the whole community experience feel secondary, whereas before it felt like a very integral part of DotA 2.

                          Losses and abandons are now only viewable when you click on your profile, and even then they appear smaller/less important than wins. Why give the information at all if you're just trying to save people's feeling from being hurt?

                          Overall, I was a big fan of the old UI, and I don't like the new UI very much if at all. What others have said about the comparisons to BNet feel spot on, and that's just not a good thing.

                            Interesting choice, i mean, we got now less useful space, i love the design, but why is the chat so small? just make everything bigger and the background less important.
                            Use the space and dont clutter it with a wallpaper or this background!

                              I expected awesome things when i read the changelod, but really this just made my jaw drop for all the wrong reasons.

                              First thing i noticed, the flimmering background. It seriously gives you aids. Then the soundeffects? SO annoying, like wtf? it was OK when you had to hear it when clicking stuff, but now ALL the time :S just painful.

                              Then its some really poor usage of space, i have a tiny screen and the text even in the menu is now really hard to read.

                              The chatbox is.. i mean.. why? didnt like it before either but now its just, useless? Chat bottom with friends beside is the way to go imo. But maybe it whould be fine if it was just attached to the side and bigger?!?

                              and like OP said, no top-live etc also my UI seems to lagg? i have a really strong pc

                              Pros!:

                              The colors are cool (color themes? =)) and the upper menu is a sweet improvement (tho really small on my screen).

                              +-0 for the other changes

                              EDIT: The new "watch" is big improvement, old one was a mess.

                              Also, keep up the good work
