I imagine a lot of this stuff depends on a very large update and modernising of the game's graphics engine and shaders** , but one thing I'd love to see is a slight increase in the size of the map, and minor increases in the complexity of jungle and river. It'd open up more strategies, make more interesting plays possible and generally increase the number of routes and approaches. Before you do any of this, though, or pretty much anything else on the now rather long list of features and upgrades to consider, BRUSH VISION AND BLUE SIDE'S CAMERA ADVANTAGE ABSOLUTELY MUST BE FIXED!

In terms of overall feel, whilst it would be nice for SR to retain a somewhat 'fun' feel, I echo others who've said that they'd like the whole thing to look a lot more realistic and higher fidelity, and more reflective of art that's produced than its current cartoonish, disproportional and unrealistic in-game interpretation.

Thanks for listening.

**hello 4-5 year old shader .dlls 2-3 iterations behind 'latest' (in a discontinued API)

One problem I have with the rift is the addition of the new big Wraith jungle mob. The problem is why was it a wraith in the first place? We already had two different looking ones in the existing wraith camp so it feels like you guys just rushed out a mob you already had with a paint change.

Could change it to something else woodsy, a bear, mountain lion, crocodile, or if you want something mythical there are dryads, treants, and a host of other creatures to put there to maim.

One last thing: I'd like to see an option in settings that essentially allows you to reduce the amount of *clutter* on your screen without reducing the *quality* of the content that *is* on the screen.

Also, what does *** mean, on the end of items in your list?

Wow, looks like you guys have done what I cared about most which was mob variety and uniqueness. Bravo, bravo. It sincerely looks so gorgeous, I can't wait to get my hands on trying it out when it finally lands!

It looks fantastic!!!! Really really good job guys, well done. It looks like a new game! (in the good way) The Baron, Dragon and all the jungle monsters are amazing!
And the lanes look awesome, minins, turrets and nexus are just wow..and that background you can see on the edge of the map is beautiful.
Just one question, is there night in the jungle and day on the lanes? Or the time will change from day to night like in Dota 2?
