  • Dota 2 starting to look like HON


    Most of the 'new' items have turn into HON style / art-ish.. how can they go from that beautiful clean and cut art to this kind of radical changes ?

    This visuals changes get a big thumbs down from me and I fear the day of Friday.

    Just wanna share my opinion to see if others agree.. please don't let Valve implement this type of art into our beloved game.

    Did S2 Games hijacked Valve for a day or what ? o.O

      Some items are really too dark for me too. Some need rework. But most of the are good.

        Actually, the man is close to the truth... Artistically, it's painfully similar now. Really, the previous one fit like a glove, and now... It's way better in terms of being practical, but when it comes to the visual aspect, ooooh boy.
        Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.


        Visit the Dota 2 Lore Megathread. Renovation ongoing.

            It's still a beta. I agree, the new look is messy and definitely not original, but there's no need to be so dramatic.


            • #7
              agreed. Don't take that path valve!


              • #8
                I really prefer the clean art style! And i dont like the glow in the backround of the items too. Change it!!!!

                  Just hope theres a function to switch between huds cause i kinda liked the old one more .

                    This is not HoN, nor LOL.

                    Do not compare.

                    Give feedback instead about the color etc.

                    Frankly I like the new items looks, and the UI.. Its goddamn amazing.

                      No! Icon fine! Only deso ugly.

                        I cant say if they look like HON's or LOL's as I never played them but I disliked most of them. Only one I can remember I liked was the new Eul's scepter. And I'm not a even a fan of the old icons. Arguably, the worst patch I've new hero and most importantly, no new matchmaking system and a bunch of new icons which aren't easy on the eyes (they suck) and a new HUD that isnt very good either.

                          All items are fine -

                          some icons might need a 2nd thought;

                          1 - Satanic

                          2 - Skull Basher

                          3 - Mithrill Hammer

                          4 - Desolator

                          those spring to mind quite quickly..otherwise wonderful artistic changes.

                            Just get off the forums please. There's a freaking Item Icon feedback forum for criticisms. Valve obviously want people's opinions, if you don't want to hear them just leave. Common sense.

                              I think they look great. I'm not sure what people mean by the old "clean" look, but it's all personal preference.
