  • I love the new dashboard

    I would just like to say that the criticism the dashboard has been getting is beyond absurd. Not only is the user interface esthetically attractive, but it's also very efficient in what it does. It's natural to interact with and the graphic detail is nigh pixel perfect.

    All the hate it's been getting is plain orthodox reactionary. I pity them fools.

    I agree, just the chatbox is a little tiny

      The chat box is so small, information is displayed in a top to bottom format, pink bankground blends terribly and hurts my eyes, too much unused space. This dashboard is just godawful.

        It doesnt provide the information the old one did. Maybe the gray and red background did need to evolve but that is not an excuse to 'dumb down' the dashboard.

            Like what? I can't seem to remember anything that old one had extra. and if it did , it was probably removed not because of the new dashboard because it was meant to be removed as a feature.

              And some people eat raw meat, they are in the minority and you most assuredly are in the minority as well.

And its not like he's wielding a wooden penis (one can easily make a penis shaped staff out of wooden branch and there are no arguments why it could not be done). The Acorn helmet is actually VERY fitting since it's natural shape is used. Also it is used for it's quality to withstand blows.
              Wow, amazing insight.

                Owls do eat raw mice most of the time. /troll

                Usually when you dislike something , you complain about it* and if you like it you would just enjoy it.

                currently 60 viewing Dashboard section while 500 are viewing Hero Picker.

                *Some players registered on these forums for first time to complain about hero picker. check Hero Picker Poll. but I don't see as much hate towards dashboard as hero picker.

                    Straight of after launching the game you could see your W/L/A, Top 3 matches, all your friends (but it didnt take up half the screen) the most active regions (I agree, its not THAT usefull) also a nice picture linking to the blog instead of THE WHOLE BLOG POST taking up HALF THE SCREEN!!

                          The look is better, the layout is not. Combine the two.
                          VALVE please make a punishment system that punishes the offenders... not the team. Also ever heard about communication? Try it. It might solve a lot of debates/questions here on the forum.

                            vertical layout is weird

                            If I wanted to look at the blog, I would open my browser and look at it. I don't want it taking up half my screen. Tue background looks disgusting, especially with the weird dark red to hot pink gradient. The "finding match" icon is like green. Lime green + hot pink = NO

                            You can barely see those dots that show up when someone accepts. Chat box is too small. The sounds that play when you click on a tab last too long. The sparks in the background cause lag on lower end pcs. Lots of wasted space in the background, why couldn't they use that space to make the chat bigger? The community feels like a "extra add on" or something because it's shoved into the right, into a tiny chat box. The previous UI made the community more present by filling up a third of your screen with it. W/L/A aren't on the front page anymore. The UI looks too futuristic and not fantasy enough. I'm not playing mass effect, I'm playing dota. I liked the old stone sounds, they sounded epic and rugged and tough.

                            Vertical layout is weird. Check the link I posted for a visual depiction of what I'm talking about.

                            EDIT: Hero picker is awful too, I need to constantly switch between grid and wheel to see what my team are picking, it takes forever to scroll through cards and it's too cluttered. Too much info, I preferred the more simplistic approach of the old UI. IMO they should have built upon the old picker instead of making a new one.
