  • TF2 like loading screen when connecting to a server suggestion

    So, instead of the old boring static loading screen without even any connection progress bar like other Source game, here is my suggestion:

    It will be like that, however the Your Performance Report is removed and the Your best moments is moved to the left, filled with your best moments in dota 2 (like most last hits, kills, deny, assist, healing, intel, agi, str, GPM, XPM) and the background picture changed into something more Dota 2, and with that connection progress bar, and the You're on the way to: 2fort changed into You're on the way to: Dota2 standard map (or something like that) and changed if there is an event or connecting to a custom server (assuming its implemented).

    You can keep the performance report.
    - Replace Time played with matches played
    - Replace points with wins (or performance bar if they now work better than before)
    - only display ten most played heroes

      nonono, pls there was someone who made some awesome semi-animated loading screens (with kunkka vs tidehunter and two others).

      That shold be implemented, not something which is kind of uninteresting ...
      ~Never forget~

        I agree with that semi-animated loading screen, but its only good at game startup, because what will happen if somehow your internet connection suddenly slow down or the server that you are connecting suddenly went out? Will that animation repeats? And I think a loading bar with connection status (connecting to server, sending client info) and that VAC thing is better than only a text that say loading. Yes, I and my friends (after I showed it to him) really agree that the animated loading screen is really cool. And something that I forgot to put in: There is a tips below the performance report, its also good to add that. And anyway as far as I know there is no other online game that puts animated loading screen at connection to server, if there is any, I would like to know
