b: Is that the legit new ui?
b: becasue the bottom attribute numbers look like ****
t: yeah its legit
b: and thats enough nitpicking for me.
t: although maybe not 100% final
t: not live yet
b: some of the UI elements don't pop and the icons look muddled
t: It looks ok but I'd change some things too.
b: why does everything look like apple came all over it.. glossy buttons and embossing.. uggh
t: I'm not a fan of the green coloring, too scifi and could have done without gloss.
b: yeah ... I think they wanted a magical look but the gold/bronze piping and aqua/green colors don't mesh well
b: Also they should fix their &#%^ing 'W' character
b: it's aliased to #$&*
t: ha
b: the UI details aren't consistent .. it makes me miss working on ACTUAL game UI
b: not rape feature skinning
b: makes me miss even working on **** like Star Trek Online ..
Fonts: We're still tweaking with that (and by tweaking, I mean most likely completely replacing).
As a fellow designer, I must say that the new gloss and aliased keyboard letters on the HUD really do ruin it. I also do not like the border designs, too thick and sharp at the edges, and the level up buttons are too fat compared to the rest of the style, so it looks out of place, but that is more opinion. The actual functionality is great, and was much needed in regards to other MOBAs, so I commend Riot for this.

Pretty Please make the "consumables" always on top like this pick I found on Reddit.

This would save you time to get back to lane without needing to go through tabs or search.

Yea, I dont see any reason why they wont offer that. I love the changes but they are still missing one. One very important change IMO.

I really think this was the biggest issue with the shop, and a change that has been asked about for a lonnnnnng time. I unsderstand wanting to get an enire new format in tandem with the new items, but at least not setting in the functionality for this feature to be quickly implemented soon after the season changes goes live seems like a grave undersight.

I think the changes you are adding are nice, just sad that something this functionable and known issue wasn't taken into consideration from phase 1.

did i miss the preview for this item change or did you just reveal something interesting?
Read that myself and there is no way that defines an active nuke. Is this a leaked update to DFG?
