  • The new Dashboard feels so modern (and not in a positive way)

    There are multiple things I really like about the new Dashboard:

    -longer friendlist
    -integrated Blog

    But I think the overall look of it is quite unfitting:

    - It looks way to modern (age not quality) which is a strong contrast to the dusty and antique look of the ingame UI (you know the thing made out of stone). Old one was alot more fitting. It kinda looked like a treasure chest (I don't think this analogy is understandable ) It also doesn't fit the DotA2 Logo at all :P
    - Lore viewing was better in tab-form instead of a pop-up (in my opinion)
    - I miss the Top-Matches part of today (especially since you can't sort live matches by players currently watching)
    - "Battlelevel" and "Battlepoints" sound really awkward. I would seriously be happy to settle with "Level" and "experience"
    - I feel that thres a lot more wasted space than before but stil not easier to understand the layout (I am actually thinking old one gave you more overview, but I am prolly biased)

    There are obviously more things that I liked and disliked, but I just wanted to give a list. Note that if I am talking about Art-Style Rusty isn't meant negative and modern isn't meant positive.

    edit: As I faield at first and created it about hero picker and dash board I quickly split it up

    I think the new look is quite good but there is a lot of wasted space.As you said Top-Matches should be on 1st page.
