  • Why I believe the new dashboard is good and the hero picker is meh

    The new dashboard is great in my opinion, the old one was ugly and poorly formatted.
    I've seen complaints about the positions of the chat and friends boxes, but they are in a good position, the chat does not need to be right there in your face and neither does your friends list, although they may be better off at the bottom of the screen. Simply making the main section you have selected wider, but shorter would solve this.
    One thing I'm not entirely sure on is the background, while I like the animation and I don't really mind the pink (although they could just change it to red), the transition from the embers to the pink background looks rough, it should be better blended, say give the bottom of the pink rougher burnt edges to make the transition smoother and more pleasing to the eye.
    The buttons at the top are a vast improvement, they are more visually appealing than the old ones and are not so gigantic.

    Hero Picker
    The new hero picker is very inconvenient, instead of having to click on grid mode to switch out of the annoying Magic: The Gathering view every game, it should save your preferences, sure let us have the option of the card view, but don't force it on us.
    Another annoying thing is that it always (for me at least) has starter heroes ticked at hero select and I sometimes forget that it's on and think that my game is broken. If I untick starter heroes, make it save between games! I want to be able to pick from the entire hero pool, instantly without having to change an option.
    Another thing that is annoying is the message that pops up every game with instructions, put a tick box saying 'Do not show this message again' please.

    Some of my reasons may seem petty, but I'm sure I'm not the only person who thinks this way.

    Please do one thread on dashboard in the dashboard forum and one on hero picker in the hero picker. The devs split them for a reason.
    Please read Common Discussions, Common Suggestions, Common Technical Issues, Common Bugs, and do a website search prior to making any new thread.
