  • Font size: Why so small?

    This is how I play:

    Open up the images full screen and tell me:
    Can you read the text?





    In WC3 we had not this problem, what happened?

    Not only is text very small, it is not even crisp and clear in 1366x786. Valve games always have ugly Menus. But in a strategy game, UI and text is crucial and with so much development time already spent, they are going nowhere with the MENU. Not everyone has 1980x1024 screens you know. I think they should learn from the Blizzard how to make a menu for a strategy game.

    I hope they will fix it soon as it is unplayable at the moment seeing how stupid menus and text are.

      The most crucial part is to get level of a moving enemy hero by hovering the mouse upon his body. Almost impossible to get it.

        The font of the CS:S/HL2M menus are crisp, of a decent size and very much readable. What is wrong with the Dota 2 font?

            This font issue really needs to be fixed before release.

                Does this only occur on resolutions below 1920x1080? I don't seem to have an issue with it at that res. It would be nice if they would allow multiple font sizes at all resolutions as an accessibly option I think.

                      Not everyone is as rich as you. Make the font bigger in general. It needs to be more readable imo. +1

                        I have a notebook released in mid-2011. So I should by a newer one, because increasing the font-size (or adding an option to increase/decrease it) is too hard for the developers to implement.
