Forgive me for this, but this is an element I'm pulling from various other games. Moving elements of the HUD individually, while a programming nightmare, would be a major benefit to players I believe.

The element in particular that inspired this is the "raid bar" on the left of the screen. In past games, I would often place this centrally on "support" characters for ease of use in buffs and healing (typically with semi-transparency). SO much more reliable than attempting to click on characters. How often has someone missed a heal because their carry juked it by accident?

This should not only include moving elements, but adding and removing them as well. If I'm playing an AP mid, I don't care what my AD is. I would rather have something like CDR or Spell Vamp on my stat bar. Some champs, I would gladly remove this bar entirely for more screen real-estate.

Since certain configurations would not help some champions/roles and even harm others, I believe saved configurations should be added as well.

This is not a stab at the current UI to say it's bad in any way; only that a single UI configuration cannot support the needs of all players.

EDIT: A few moments after posting this, I ran across something called the ACE client that seems to do this and more. How reliable, stable, updated, and more importantly "legal" is this?

Moving and sizing HUD elements is totally legit, there is a .ini somewhere that you can edit yourself. As far as I know we've got no problem with you doing that. Changing the graphics is much more of a grey area, we don't support it and you could end up being banned for it if we find it's being used to exploit some part of the game.

Thank you very much for the responses. I'll read through the thread you mentioned Perb and see what I can find. I may give ACE a try, get it setup the way I like, the post the results to be sure nothing's considered an exploitation.

I can assure you the ACE Client is 100% legit as it was one developed by a former Riot employee.

If you desire to know the whole story, the ACE Client's FAQ has proven to be an enlightening one
