    Feedback on updated icons

    Almost all new icons look great now. However, there is a same problem with some icons as when they got updated for the first time and its that some icons are too dark.

    Icons that are too dark:
    Urn of Shadows
    Wraith Band
    Eye of skadi
    Shivas Guard
    MKB
    Cheese

    Icons that look perfect:
    Blade Of Alacrity
    Hood Of Defiance
    Shadow Blade
    Mask Of Madness
    Poor Mans Shield
    Recipe
    Satanic

    Icons that need rework/improvement:
    Previous Assault Cuirass icon looked better
    Previous Blink Dagger icon looked better
    Bottle Looked better
    Background on cheese and its shade makes it look like it stinks also too dark
    Background on couriers on both sides is too bright
    Vanguard is wtf for me, was much better

    Everything in this thread is based on personal opinion only.

    ^Armlet, Blade Of Alacrity, Gem, Satanic, Headdress, Mask Of Madness, Poor Mans Shield all got a tons of complaints and all got re-worked. So you are very wrong...

    agree with many of the listed but i disagree with....

    all the "too dark" list, i think they are all okay.

    shadow blade looks like a work in progress still, could use more improvement/details

    @lilaznelementz: If you don't see it, it doesn't mean they are not too dark. Boosters are a great example of this. They all got slightly brighter with last updated and now look perfect.







    Linkens is another one that got brighter and does look much better as a result. However, some items did get darker and thats not a good thing. Obviously there should always be a good balance of dark and bright colors but brighter colors are generally always nicer to look at and more pleasant to the eye.

    Agreed, Valve doesnt give two fucks about our opinion.

    I mean, look at these 2 threads and how many votes they gathered:

    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 can't believe you are saying this guys... IMO Valve devs made it pretty clear that old icons are NOT coming back. I understand that some old icons where better, I do agree with this. But you really have to stop asking for old icons to return and try suggest improvements to new ones.
