    Please read what the original post is about.

    This goes from now on. This thread is not specifically about the UI. It's about the gameplay viewing area being cropped. In other words, you can't see as much of the field as you could before the new UI was implemented.

    It's not so much the HUD size (although having options to make the HUD larger or smaller should be in the game) as it is the fact that we keep losing viewing space of the game field. It causes people to have to move the camera around way too much. There's a reason why we have Fog of War. We should be able to zoom out more, probably to 50% more at the most. As for your UI issues, this is why a "one size fits all" UI doesn't work well for games. This is why they need to allow people to scale the UI to their liking and add/remove elements they don't need. So the people can maximize the UI for their play style.

    In short, we need to be able to zoom out more.
    In short, user interfaces should augment the users skill, not inhibit them.

    How many months was it between the Dire ranged creep bug being brought up and Valve actually bothering to fix it? I get the feeling that they dismissed it as a low priority bug due to not having a clue about Dota.
    Your wording is kind of unfortunate to say the least, but I agree with the content. Seemingly simple things such as the HUD impact the game in a huge way.

    16:9 is the widest aspect, it should be the one scalling best. i play at 16:9 (2560x1440). for me the hud is still way to big! and the fact that they made is slightly "smaller" and make us think we get more space, but actually the cheated us, zooming the viewport, giving us the same vertical viewing-area, but cropping horizontal area... really hope this is a mistake!

    Is that your monitors native resolution? 1600 width should be more then enough, but if it isnt your monitors native resolution, it might look like crap. because pixels dont match that resolution.

    His point is still wrong, regardless of the "letterboxing effect" he's talking about. There is less shown all around the screen. Look at all 4 corners, then look at all 4 sides. The new UI has cropped the viewing space all around, by quite a bit actually. If people would read the thread and look at the images they'd understand this.
    BECAUSE THERE IS MORE VERTICAL SPACE!

    They dont show "more", you see the same vertical area, and since the area is slightly bigger, it will crop horizontal instead.
    So even though the hud is slightly smaller, the we actually lost horizontal space, and gained NOTHING. fack!

    Except the "stats box" being too big, the rest of the HUD is fine, BUT I dislike the zoom on the new version.

    It's like talking to monkeys, eh? I'm posting here, Neo, to let you know that at least one intelligent human being has read your post, looked at your pictures, and agreed with you. The new UI gives no extra vertical space, it crops the sides off a little bit, and adds a new layer to the bottom that covers up even more playable area than before.
