  • [SUGGESTION] Change background color theme to blue

    Before the new update went live and I heard it was coming, I was under the impression that Valve were going to incorporate cooler colors into the game's color scheme. Mainly because of the color theme used in this page: http://www.dota2.com/tournaments/international/

    In my opinion the blue in the background jives very well with the gray and red palette already being used. After some surfing I got the impression that some people disliked the current hot-pink background image right now. So I thought I'd start a poll and see what everyone's thoughts were!

    I like the pink-red color

    It should be more of a blue design like the International 2 page

    Yes, blue + black looks sexy. The current hot pink to black is just disgusting and it looks like someone spent 2 minutes in photoshop to make that gradient.

      I'm glad you agree! I don't mind the animating fire, if it could be made to blend well with that smokey-blue effect, it would be perfect.

        I would prefer it if the background color was customizable instead. I do like the pink color and would be saddened if Valve changes it to that blue. An fauna color would also be nice too. Just make it customizable. Therefore, people would have the lobby and their heroes reflect their style.

          They should make it look like this! Maybe they could animate those white smoke/swirls.

            You know i'd be okay with that too, at the very least maybe make it possible to put our own custom images in there to overrite the original.

              The poll really is a false dilemma

                I have no idea what I'm doing, but that's pretty cool (no pun intended).

                  While I still prefer the old dash, making it blue makes it much better and less of an eyesore for some reason. If they decide to keep this dash they need to do this. +1

                        And how about they just make it red instead of pink? Or is that too much 'out of the box' thinking?

                          (original mock-up by Blaeko: http://dev.dota2.com/showthread.php?t=37071)

                          Other changes
                          + Blogsite using alternative styling: Bigger content, column on the right removed.
                          + Redundant Dota 2 logo removed. Top margin reduced.
                          + Original "Chat" text and bar removed, because the content is self-explanatory.
                          + Original "Friends" text and bar removed, replaced with Friend and Group tab for consistency.
                          + Removed moot borders for Chat and Friends. (They are moot because of all the white-space.)

                              There should also be a green with leaves or some such.

                              With red, green, and blue, you would have backgrounds that would represent strength, agility, and intelligence heroes respectively. Have the game pick one at random each boot similar to the TF2 'wallpapers' that it swaps between, and I think everyone would be pleased. However, all of them should be muted in palette somewhat, similar to what cn.white has posted above.

                              Visually, I believe this would read very well in terms of aesthetics, but also in terms of tying the appearance to the game in a way that's instantly recognizable to the player. It allows the player to correlate the interface with aspects of the game, 'tying' it together, if you will.
