  • Portal HUD feedback

    I really like the portal pack, Glados is awesome and the wards are fantastic. A Wheatley courier would have been tops but that's ok, I was happy (nerdish) enough to spend that money just for glados alone. I do, unfortunately, have a problem with the portal HUD and I don't think I'll be alone in this. The portal HUD... needs a lot of work to say the least, I don't think its very good I'm really sorry to say. The art is good, but the color scheme isn't very portal-ly, needs to be more white and pristine. The shrubbery doesn't make it look better I think. Now onto the biggest the problem I have with the HUD and that's the portal layer on the hero portraits... I think it's a great concept but considering how the hero portraits were designed to be viewed from a rectangular window, like for example if you pick jakiro or invoker and use the portal HUD, you're not really gonna like it at all. It feels like it gets in the way which takes away from the art rather than adding to it. I believe a good fix for this, as sacrilege as it may seem, is to make the portals rectangular or somehow allow for full portrait viewing. Also I saw in another post why not make the portals blue or at least add an option for blue portals? Cause I would like that as well lol.

    So to sum up:
    -Portal HUD isn't very good in current state
    -Needs to be more white
    -Portals get in the way of portraits and should possibly be made rectangular
    -Blue portals option would be nice as well

    Thanks and I hope (desperately) many of you agree and that Valve change the design of the HUD. Thanks for reading.

      Rectangular portals wouldn't make it Portal anymore. It's not like you need to look at the Portrait all the time anyways. Maybe make the portal size bigger so they don't overlap the portrait too much.

        I suggest blue portal for Radiant and orange for Dire

          What would be nice is to remove the rectangle around the portrait and replace it with the portal. The portal would need to be bigger though.
          But for me that portal hiding some of the portrait really is the weakest part of the HUD.
          The color option would be nice indeed.

              also the portal (hero portait) needs to be bigger, some heros get a face-block
