    Always when I watch the current Divine Rapier Icon it reminds me on a swordfish indeed! <_<

    We have an overwhelming majority favouring the old Divine Rapier design.

    Please change it back.
    He's the hero this community deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt his identity, because he can take it, because he's not our hero. He's a silent buffer, a watchful nerfer. An IceFrog.

    I get tired of saying this over and over again, but people keep falling into the same trap

    First, you need to be careful. What we have here is not a poll showing that 61.41% of people dislike the current icon. What it actually shows is that 61.41% of the forum users that voted said they disliked it at some point. That doesn't mean the poll is meaningless, it just means we need to treat it carefully. How many people still feel that way? How many people just went with the flow and actually don't really care?

    Second, and far more importantly, this forum is a tiny snapshot of the player base. For MMOs, the figure I've seen waved around is a shocking 3% (but I can't find a source for that, so take it with a grain of salt). If we compare the online users on the forum to the current number of players today, we get a figure of 0.9%. Regardless of the actual figure, the fact is that most people don't visit the forums. Take the Russian playerbase as an example: think of the number of people you encounter in games that don't speak English, and then look at the forum. How many posts are there in Russian? What this boils down to is that the forums are a very small percentage of the overall playerbase, and we don't know why. It could be due to language issues, motivation, lack of interest, or anything.

    So, what we've got is a poll that shows that 61.41% of people who voted said they disliked the icon, where the total number of people who voted is less than 1% of the currently online players. It's very hard to get from a poll here to a figure for the playerbase, because we don't know why people didn't vote. In fact, the poll is asking an abnormal group of players because we're actually participating on the forums, while most people aren't.

    TBH, I feel the only way to get proper data on this is for Valve to do a compulsory survey via the actual client. Something quick like "did you prefer the old icons: yes / no / some" and "any feedback: [text entry box]".
