    [Suggestion] Hide creeps and neutrals health bars when they're full


    Before and after image. When a unit is at 100% health, his health bar is hidden, but shows up once their health goes below 100%. This reduces the clutter.


    Screenshot and title says it all, you don't need to see someones health bar to know that they're full. The absence of the bar would serve as an indicator that they're on full health.
    I know it might seem a little confusing at first, but it also reduces the amount of clutter on the screen. Not to mention, there's already a few console commands for health bars, another one or even an option wouldn't hurt.

    It's an interesting idea and I'd like to see how it would play out. I'm just wondering if it would look awkward or abrupt to have the hp bars pop up when the creep gets damaged.

    To be honest, I have no idea since I haven't seen it in action, but I doubt that it would be too intrusive or anything like that.

    Saw this concept in a Tower Defense iPhone game, it felt weird at first but in the end, it led to a better understanding of what was actually happening. This would also solve problems about bar overlying. In some cases only, though...

    I like this suggestion. It does get a bit messy with the overlapping health bars and the overlapping.
