wait
do those white bars appear in game?
I prefered when they just dissapeared when you dished out the HP.
Also it's better if the lines would go from top to bot. Not stopping halfway the bar.
But it's great the 1000HP division great job

I like empty better.

I think the white bars make it easier to tell how much HP a champion is missing at a glance, though it does make the HP bar seem slightly more cluttered.

That white is really clashing with the black and not pleasing to look at.

Make it something like a ghostly shade of gray? See where that gets us.

How does it look without the minor 100 health ticks?

So, its "Actual health shows 100 and 1000 ticks, missing health ONLY shows the 1000 ticks in white". I feel like showing the minor ticks is definitely too much noise.

Why don't you photoshop it to the shade you'd like and we'll try it in the engine.

Think of the HP bar as a syringe needle with a green fluid. This way as it empties the black tics don't change color, but the background color changes. Try light gray as the empty background

I agree that it's a bit too much noise. I feel like it's not really that hard to tell a target's current HP (with the latest revisions on PBE), even when low. Not difficult enough to merit creating the noise from showing the missing health divisions.

Perhaps see what a darker grey color would look like, but I don't think it's necessary at all.

Also, having played more and more on the PBE lately, the current HP bar revision on there has really grown on me. I'm starting to miss it when I go to Live.
