Compare old scoreboard to new. The important stuff is LITERALLY shrunken down to make way for the border. Who's idea was this?
The shop is simply clunky. I like the new organization, 1 click to get to lifesteal (for example) is awesome, but I can't double-click to buy something even HALF as fast as I was before. So if I'm getting 5 pots, I can click the potion icon like 20 times before I have 5 pots, where it used to be 10. Also, the blueprint portion on the right side of the interface is MUCH larger than it needs to be, while the actual item selection area is too small. There is a lot of blank space that is wasted.
Additionally, while I don't have issues seeing the rest of my UI like some of the other posters (bigger monitor I guess), when I have the shop open I can't type.....
COMMUNICATION ES IMPORTANTE!
Only gripes so far, but definitely an improvement overall. Nice work.
I just noticed earlier that I can't type in chat with the shop window open. That is a MUST fix. And I agree it's too clunky and too laggy. I feel there's a lot of wasted space and it could be better streamlined/symmetrical too, though. Some things about the organization are fine. And some I can't stand.

If you press tab, you'll switch from the recommended pane to the all items view. We're still iterating on keyboard navigation.

Please Undo this patch and turn this game back into LoL not a Dota look alike.

There's no point in moving it around anymore because you can't do anything while the shop is open (can't view scoreboard, can't type into chat, can't jump to other players, etc).

Please, reverse the HUD system back or at least set an option where users can choose between the old and the new so people can have what they like.

The Items:

I think some of the item changes were reasonable, but i think Riot dropped the ball by trying to make a lot of new items and changing a lot of other items that were fine, just to give it this new "feel".

The game established a huge fan base due to both simplicity and easy to understand both system and game play, now it feels like that simplicity is starting to fade which might upset a lot of player.
Boohoo. Hey it looks like Riot want to continue to make LoL more like Dota 2. That kind of says something about them considering they're always bashing Dota.
