  • Obtrusive Top Info Bar

    I find the bar at the top of the screen when in game to be very obtruvise and out of place. When playing Dire and harassing lanes, I constantly move back and forth to harass and dodge creeps. Every now and then I will right click the upper info bar instead of the actual map, so my hero stays still and soaks a bunch of unnecessary damage. Perhaps move this bar to the sides of the screen, or make it click through?

    Also, I find that the bar is lacking in some aspects. For instance, it would be very nice to be able to see my allies heatlh./mana by just looking at the bar. Perhaps more information could be conveyed about the particular players hero upon hovering over their avatar.

    When I first played the game I felt it was obtrusive and unnecessary. After 20+ hours I still feel it's obtrusive and unnecessary. It can at least be made thinner, imo. The hero icons are easy enough to distinguish - they dont need to be huge.

      Agreed on both points, the top bar is far too big and I would kill for a way to easily see my allies health, mana and possibly even cooldowns if it can be implemented elegantly.

        I agree to with this, but it would also be nice to add levels on the avatar, so you easily can get an overview, instead of looking all stats at once.

          I agree with levels and HP/Mana on the heroes bar. Bar size dont bother me much. (Im playing on 16:9 mon)

            Should be minimize-abled IMO (This would only change the viewport)
