    Exclamation HP bar needs to be centered!



    In every single game in the world the HP bar is symmetrical or centered. Placing it off center is not ideal plz reconsider.

    It is a big deal. The bars being uncentered affect the balance of the design severely.

    Hi. Just joined because I kinda maybe possibly agree on the hp bars needing to be centred?

    I did a very quick and dirty paint job on a random redditors post:

    Current look on the new patch: http://i.imgur.com/EYNlg.jpg

    Approximation of what it may look like if hp and mana centered(ish):http://i.imgur.com/j9wHU.jpg

    You can probably ignore the rock that I left in there ^_^

    Edit: Come to think of it. It doesn't have to be that wide specifically, but at least centred. Really helps balance everything out, imo.

    You can probably ignore the rock that I left in there, but I kinda liked the overlap, though it would interfere with double digit armor values.
    That's how it should of been in the first place. Valve quality control went lax this week.

    support for more centralized skills and hp bar. Theres a lot of room to the left which can be squized so we can have hp and skills centered.

    It is a big deal - spacing of various features in a layout is incredibly important. Ever hear of the "rule of thirds"? That's one rule of graphic design. People prefer when elements of a picture line up together; that is just how our brains work. In the current layout, nothing lines up, everything is disjointed, and because of this, everything looks messy.

    Zepharim's suggestion is perfect - I don't understand why Valve didn't implement it this way in the first place.
