    Healthbar too long

    I didn't test it yet for longer time if it is really that a problem, but I find that the length of the healthbar exceeds the maximum length that can be used to estimate the percentage of lost/remaining HP.
    Generally speaking, the longer a line/bar is, the harder it is to divide it into tripplets or quarters etc. It reduces "HP" awareness.
    And I think with the last test client update, the limit has been exceeded.

    Agreed, this seems like a very rushed change to center the bars.

    I don't really feel that it's that hard, especially since, now that it's centred, it's a lot easier at a glance to tell if you are below half hp.

    I disagree with the OP. The bigger the health bar the better, so personally I am very happy with the recent change.

    Bigger the health bar the better. Probably the biggest issue I had with the new HUD was the healthbars.
