  • Dear Valve. (New HUD)

    Sorry Moderators, I don't enjoy adding to your workload but I want someone from the dev team to hear me out.

    DotA dev team:
    I've had this beta since September last year, i've played over 1,000 games and I don't have a single abandon, I didn't even abandon a game when abandons weren't listed as a statistic. I'm one of the only two winners of a bug reproducing bounty (the other being CvP (still a mod?)) which by the looks of my discovery, is a great test for reproducing any visual glitch that may occur.

    I stopped contributing to this forum because I simply wasn't finding bugs in the beta, the work was so polished it felt like a full release, even better than some of your competitors full releases. So with faith i've sat and greatly enjoyed what I believe will be another solid Valve masterpiece.

    Then you seem to have taken a massive step in the wrong direction.

    My opinion on your new HUD & item icons isn't important, the feedback i've seen is middle ground, maybe when it's fully completed i'll be completely balled over by it.

    I merely hope to ask, or have my point of view changed and my faith restored, that you give me (and subsequently all of your players), the option to use the previous UI & icons.

    This is the only Valve game I know of, where these entities are not completely customisable due to balance issues, every other title you create has the options of completely customising your display all the way down to model skins.

    If the old HUD & Icon pack were balanced, then please give us the advanced option of using them.

    Thanks for your time, Will.
