Will there be an option to choose between the hud as previewed in this topic, and the old one? I don't quite like how it looks(/feels?). Don't get me wrong, I know you guys put in a lot of effort but just a preference.

When I read the title of the article, I swear I thought it said, "Item Shop and Game HUE Updates."

I'm going to Hell.

There's nothing wrong with my gameboy color, why do they need to release a gameboy advance? ):<

Question for those of us at lower or non-widescreen resolutions (1280:1024 here).

How does the new UI scale? The current one has some issues on resolutions that aren't 1920:1080. Notably the minimap and most popup windows don't seem to scale down with the rest of the UI.

One small nitpick about aesthetics as well. My impression of the new colour scheme is that it's a rather sharp departure from the established theme of the league. That is, dark greys and greyed-out blues. Why the change to more gold hues?

I also find the glowing jewels on Skills bits to be a bit distracting. I know there's an attempt to be made to make them pretty, but they don't need to be pretty, just fluid and easy to interpret information as quickly as possible. There's something to be said about the bland look of the original HUD, since it makes more useful information, like HP and mana, stick out, as they should.

There's an elegance to simplicity, and I think that's really what should be strove for in a HUD.
i agree, i like the look of the old one a lot better, it was simple and fluid, and everything that was important stuck out.
