    It feels a bit too long, just dont change it too often, because it's hard to get used.

    Haven't really gave much thought about this. Pretty interesting point raised...

    Thinking about it, it is indeed a bit too long, at least for me. However, it would no longer be centered if it is shortened. It all boils down to personal preference. I am okay with the current one and if it is changed, I have no problem with it too.

    There is redish color all across the edges of screen if u get attacked.U just cant miss it


    Yes,1/3 of 24 inch is bigger than 1/3 of 15inch.
    But,the scale is the same,no matter what resolution it is.
    If your HP bars is 3x bigger,minimap is 3x bigger too.Entire hud is 3x bigger.
    Its not like that only HP bar gets larger as resolutions go up,and rest stays the same
    True, but they didn't scale everything they just increased hp bar to respond to unentered complaints. First bar size worked for all so this should be shortened and another solution found for centering.

    It's fine as it is. People will only listen to you if you babble on about how it supposedly lowers the skill ceiling or something.

    It doesn't really seem too wide on a 20-inch monitor (1600x900). All I need to do is center my vision on the numbers and my peripheral vision fills in the rest.

    I agree, it is too long now to get a quick overview off your hp since I actually need to move my eyes to see the whole bar.

    Sad that you can only see your heroes HP bar when you have the hero on your screen.
    When I aim Sunstrike, TP (or later Sunray), or any other long range skill I am unable to see my HP with that bar.
    All I said is make the bar more usable by giving the possibility to use it as a bar rather than just looking at the numbers. I mean, that's what it is for.
    And no, I'm no way talking about resolution, I talk about SIZE. The width the bar has in CENTIMETERS. If I posted a line here that is too long for this layout so you'd have to scroll it, you would easily find out yourself how hard it is to divide something into parts of a certain percentage, when you can't see the whole thing at once.

    You guys are all saying that we don't need that bar, so I understand you that we could then remove it eventually.

    Its not size of the monitor.Its resolution

    Anyway..
    So,your main reasons are:
    -bar is now too long,it takes focusing and looking left/right to see it all
    -we want visible bars,not number,we don't want to have a "scale sense"

    Bolded one is the MAIN reason.

    I hereby declare ur problem solved!
    Picture > http://img545.imageshack.us/img545/9...0521290108.png

    So,u have small bars,with very visible segments,and its right on the middle of screen,u don't have to focus on any other part of screen in order to "read it" efficiently.

    Now,there is the same thing on hud,just englarged.
    So there is even a choice,if some1 likes smaller bars,he can have those hp over heroes bars,and if some1 wants to read from bigger bars,he can do it from HUD.

    I beleive this can satisfy both sides,u and me ?

    And I'm saying its how its suppose to work, first it was to small then we complain, now its to big and we complain again, then they change it again until we find a perfect ratio.

    @4evra I dont agree with you, like Typnox said if we need to look from left to right to see full bar than its too big, Some of you may not realized it since you are playing on smaller monitors. Maybe that was the case in previous state and smaller hp was unbearable to most since the majority plays on smaller monitors. I believe that something in the middle would be acceptable to wider range of monitors.
