    !Personally, the UI now is not as great as before. Whatever I'm about to say is subjected to my own personal opinion, so here are some of the reasons why I think it's not as good.

    The Graphical part of the UI itself is a great improvement, I'm talking about how the tabs, boxes, containers, scrolls bars, text, borders, etc, you know what I mean, It really looks sharper with a much better finish. I really like it.

    However, in terms of the general placement of the interface, I strongly feel that the dev should put more emphasize on the CHAT window instead of having it to the side. I mean, it's good thing that they have intergrated a somewhat update/news/web-browser window within the menu itself but I feel that that shouldn't be the main focus when we are actually within the game. So interms of placement, i'd have to give it back to the old Interface.

    I know that the old placement of the UI has its compromises in comparison to this new UI such as not being able to have the Dota 2 blog within the Menu as well as the steam-like integrated browser, but as an avid Dota 2 player, I feel that getting an overview of the ART that comes within the latest patch is sufficient enough, and If we really want to check out the patch notes and stuff, it's just an easy alt+tab into the steam browser.

    So that's my 2 cents about the new Interface, just to sum it up,
    Graphical part of the interface gets a solid 5 star from me, it's much better looking and sharper. But I strongly feel that the placement of the interface should be improved much more, with more emphazizing on the chat function than the update notes and maybe even decreasing the amount of extra spaces.

    Oh and one last thing, please for the love of god, that background is just awful, I really hope it's just a placeholder.

    I hope my feedback will be of some use to the devs, I really appreciate the fact that the devs are really putting so much time and effort into this game, and with the help of the community, I'm sure we will make Dota 2 a very complete game. Who am I kidding, the game now looks really good already.

      supporting what he said above . im sure a third iteration which features best of both styles ( and maybe better features ) can be done in the near future . coz this is definitely not worth sticking onto

        I have to agree that the backdrop is kinda awful... my eyes are hurting just having it there while reading about the Ogre Magi. Thanks.
