  • What may cause me to just not buy the game

    While I realize the speed of projectiles is related to the size of my field of vision, it doesn't make the experience more enjoyable. The HUD is clunky and takes up too much space. I feel too zoomed in all the time and it just leaves me feeling agitated when I play. It's so much so that if post beta the visuals are the same, I definitely will not be buying it. It's simply unenjoyable for me right now.

    It's already more zoomed out than in dota 1. I'm not really sure if you're serious since HoN has it at about the same zoom level.

      I agree with the size of the HUD, it takes up way too much vertical space.

        I feel the game is too zoomed in, but it is likely for some balancing. Really dislike it though, would love to be able to zoom out as much as possible.

          Though I share the same experience I wouldn't say I won't buy the game for that :S.

          The thing is when im a melee hero pared with a second melee hero. We tend to keep behind the minions to catch some xp.
          But we don't engage for gold or else we are toast because odly enough theres always one ranged opponent.
          I'm trying to keep the enemy hero and the hero's in the same view area but I also want a bit of space
          so I can run away.

          This is not possible at the moment and gets me killed. I have to move down with the view then click on an empty area, and in some case a new minion wave
          blocks my escape. Dont forget the stun's and the slows.

          I think eventually it's going to be like in starcraft 2, you just need to get used to it. But it sure gives me an uncomfortable experience.

            Yes, i have the exact same opinion about the HUD and zoom level. At the moment, the game feels very zoomed in while you play, everything seems very large, and the HUD takes up too much space. A zoom option to me should be in the game, where, if you want, you could zoom out more than you can atm. Your field of vision should only be limited to the vision your character has ingame, and therefore, a zoom option would not imbalance or cause discomfort, since you can personally choose what ever you would like.
            (No absurd zoom-out, like seeing the whole map onscreen, but some array of choices!

              please no, do NOT change the zoom, the entire game is balanced around the current field of view, having a larger area to see changes the entire metagame.

                  Just no. Think about how this would change the game.

                    You don't need to modify the zoom-distance. Just maybe some option to scale the UI/HUD as you'd like to. Or maybe put an option for "simplified HUD" and "full HUD".

                      If you walk into a darkened bathroom and chant Icefrog's true name into a mirror three times a dotard will appear and blather on about the metagame.

                        HoN vs DotA 2 HUD comparison

                        Zoom distance is the same, but there is a clear difference in how much space the respective HUD's carry.

                          The level of zoom i'm experiencing in DOtA 2 is not the same as DotA 1, it feels almost claustrophobic and it makes me want to stop playing DotA 2.
