    [SUGGESTION] Flip the gold graph

    The dire are on the top half of the map but the bottom half of the gold gained graph. I understand that this comes from them being the 'second' team but I find it very counter-intuitive while spectating as my brain seems to associate them with their geographical positions.

    Thoughts?

    My brain didn't have this issue so I'll say... No.

    I can see your reasoning, but as far as it goes for me, I was always thinking of Legion as the first team while Dire is the second one. So, T-Down.

    Just watched another cast and it happened again! Me = epicenter of confusion.
    Sorry if it had already been posted but I did a quick search and didn't find anything

    Changing it might take a while for some people to adjust, but really, why not? It's not like the radiant deserves to be the first team...

    I don't agree here, as I feel that the top of the graph is best associated with the team on the right hand side, ie the dire.

    However, I do think that it DOES need interpretation, and it's not as intuitive as it could be.

    So, I propose a solution - rotate the graph 90degrees and have the graph from left to right, instead of up and down. That way, it is clear that the /left/ hand side is Radiant and the /right/ hand side is Dire.

    That way, no matter how you brain interprets it, it's clear.

    I agree that Radiant team is the top team, and Dire the bottom team, so I definitely feel it should be flipped.

    Flip it and also add slight green/red shades to the graph background to indicate which team it is.

    Been meaning to bring this up for months. Same goes for the exp graph and the lineups (top 5 players should be Dire, bottom 5 Radiant).
