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?

Well. That's cute and all, but when are we just gonna nerf health?

Or is "most giant's belts wins" the new meta?

I love how they are worrying about this cosmetic junk when there are serious troll problems

Nothing pregame to defend against trolls anymore due to HARSHER than season 1's harsh penalties...

I personally cannot stand the new health bars. I don't like the way it looks at all. I like the intent but I just think it needs more work. It irritates me that the lines don't seem to touch the bottom of the health bar. it looks like a ruler or yardstick when I want to see something akin to an NES Megaman healthbar (only horizontal).
