  • Am I the only one who thinks HUD/EVERYTHING is too small..

    I play WC3 DotA and DotA 2 on the same resolution, 1366x768. Am I the only one who finds that everything is too small? At first I thought it was just zoomed out, but then most of the threads are complaining that its too zoomed in..

    The minimap is too small, I can barely see things happening as clearly as in the wc3 version. Lane creeps and their hp bars also feel so much smaller it is harder to last hit. Maybe I just need to get used to it, but is everything really the same size?

    screenshot would be helpful.

    But I do feel like the font used in chat is pretty tiny

      Might add some tomorrow. Now its time to sleep.

      Also why not just make the hero portrait box smaller and flush with the rest of the things like skills/items? Makes a lot of sense imo..
      Another thing, I've seen the post about the SP available and SP adding system. Yeah it's pretty bad, I think the LoL/HoN plus signs concept is better.

        Cam is too zoomed, Hud information is tiny, the hud is not as big but the proportions and positions are WRONG, but u can't put all that in "HUD IS SMALL"


        • #5
          It's big? >: ?

            Comparison of the four games.

            The health and mana indicators should be below the skills since we already have one above our hero. The skills are already far down because of the smaller HUD, now it even further down.

              could be even smaller.would be nice smaller. we dont need it.

                I find the font displaying the hero's level a bit too small.
                Sometimes when i get ganked or when an ally ganks my lane and i select them, i find it hard to tell if he is level 5 or 6.
                I'm at 1680X1050

                  The HUD is generally considered insanely huge. The minimap, however, I could live with a small enlargement.. provided the rest of the UI is shrunk down considerably.

                      That's sad >_>. I was very comfortable with the warcraft 3 hud so d2's HUD is actually considered awesome for me. Its just that all the words and stuff are so small compared to in wc3. Actually the skills/items are fine, its just the minimap and certain fonts like the hero levels in the scoreboard etc. I've gotten pretty used to last hitting in lane but it still feels smaller. Maybe its just the creep hp bars and smaller projectiles in general.

                      this is just a quick HUD I made, just a rough idea..

                        I play at 1920x1080 and I find the HUD to be disgustingly massive.

                          yeah, i play at 1920x1080 too and its fucking huge the HUD

                          i don't know if i'm used to the wider camera from HoN... but i think that HUD should be smaller...

                            Coming from LoL I find the HUD huge. I don't know if making it smaller would be better though, since wc3 was even bigger.
