Can you guys work on customizing Health Bars? Sometimes during a hectic team fight, I lose sight of my champion.

I think having an option of your health bar/name tag be a completely different color from rest of the players would be extremely helpful and not give any unfair advantages. I would love to see this in the game

Your tag already is a different color. It's just not enough of a change.

Do you mean it's not enough of a change to work on it? Or not enough of a change that people still lose themselves?


Here's a link to an old thread with a lot of support.

I had it installed but the thing stopped working after one of the patches. It helped a lot when it did work though

Here you can see how the original health bars worked:

Once Amumu passed 3,200 health, the notches stopped increasing and it is very hard to count how much health an opponent has.

Here, Amumu is modelling the new health bars:
Attachment 620772

When you cross the 1,000 health threshold, a full, dark tick now appears. This makes it easier to see how many thousands of health your opponent has.

While we tried many, many iterations, we chose this one because it balanced between familiarity (no need to re-learn what 1 tick means!) and clarity past 2,000 health.

What do you think?

The grey ticks for missing health may be hard to notice in heated fights.
