With the recent patch and changes to font, I find it very difficult to read some of the text, particularly your stats in the lower left corner. Could we maybe get the text size increased or the font changed?

In the HUD the font hasn't changed. We will be increasing font size there eventually though.

In PVP.net, we will be doing a legibility pass very soon to remove bold and increase font size in some places.

The font didn't need any changes. Looked professional before. Now it looks kind of bootleg. Why do you guys have to change what isn't a problem?

The new font hurts my eyes. Please add an option to scale or just make it bigger.

Like I said, we will be adjusting size and other properties to make it more legible.

One way you can help is to call out specific instances where you feel the font is too small.

Thanks!

Character Attributes on the In-Game HUD are hard to read. Very tiny. Can only read them after hovering over them.

Hero names are also very small on the loading screen. I've learned most of them by picture now, but for new players it would be nice to know that you're playing against Trynd instead of "That guy with the sword".

Screenies demonstrate both poor uses of font.

Yeah i totally agree. i can't read jack in game. the PVP.net adobe air window where you chat and stuff before game is decent in most of the places. there is a few instantces there too though. but it's managable.

but as for in-game.. i can barely play the game. ii am guessing all the time at what does what cuz i can't read their descriptions. It needs to be no smaller than like size 10-12 font in microsoft word.
size 8 i can't read.

warcraft3 already uses the smallest font that i can comfortably read most of the time. barely within that range.

so just correct it everywhere that the size is smaller than that.
i'd like to know what my spells do.. and what my items do, and what people are saying in chat.
