I've had this idea in my head awhile now and would really love to get some feedback.

Often times during team fights I end up getting completely lost, between the green bars/levels everywhere and the characters running around, which at a quick look can be mistaken for the champ I am playing. More than once I thought I was back further than I was so I try to get in a quick poke while we are moving back, only to see i am actually right up on the enemy team, and as a result die.

There have also been a couple of times when I am laneing with someone and we stand just right so our health bars are overlapped in a weird way. I see health start ticking down and assume it is my allies, so i stick around and try to burst down my opponent before my teammate dies, then move to realize I was the one being hit, and is now dieing because I was hit by ignite. Granted this my more my own fault, but I would of acted differently if I had known it was me being targeted.

My solution would be to Change the color of the healthbar and level indicator that float above your head. This would be client-side only and you would still see your team as green and foes as red. I dont care what color it is, blue, yellow, purple. I just need something to help me determine where I am quickly in a team fight.

This is a good idea, another way is to put a colored aura underneath the champion. Thank you.

I think changing your champions Health Bar to another color different from other players would be a good idea. I'd also think it'd be nice to either move the Health Bar so that it is underneath your character so that it won't overlap/ get obscured by another player's Health Bar. Or make it so that your Health Bar is always on the topmost layer over anyone else's Health Bar.

I actually came here to post this idea, but you beat me to it.

I lose my character in team fights way too often. A different color for my own healthbar (I was thinking blue) would be great.

I have some modded healthbars in a UI I made (can install just the healthbars). Image is below.

I really want to try this out, except:
"shields don't work with the blue healthbar"

Does that mean shields don't appear on your health meter?

It means the shield colour will be very close to the healthbar colour in any custom coloured healthbar. My wording is a bit poor saying they don't work.

Here's a screenshot with Malphite's shield up:

You can see your team's health bars if you look to the column on the left.
