Simply put, the new health bars are terrible.

From the little I've heard, a lot of people don't like them either.

For one thing, the border is far too thick. They're also very small, and sometimes depending on the background it's hard to see the enemy bars.

Thoughts?

What don't you guys like about them? The intent was to make them more compact to create less visual clutter. We will tweak these going forward based on feedback, so let us know what you think and be specific if you can.

I only see a gray triangle coming out of the mobs heads. Makes it really hard to last hit.

List of things I don't like:

Personally, I find them ugly. Also, sometimes hard to see enemy bars depending on what background they're on. The border is way too big.

I guess those are my main gripes. Put together they make me not like them to say the least. I can't put my finger on what exactly makes me not like them. Probably everything together.

i agree 100% with celdiruen, they just stand out waaaay tooo much it actually hinders the art work of the game, and it looks tacky honestly, i very much prefer the old bars, if the issue was difficulty telling whos health is what, simply change the color of the bar or the border, but i think the change was way too far

there was also an idea about making allies bars transparent like, so not as to get in the way...

i think the new ones look too blunt?

if you combined the transparency idea with the old ones it'd be perfect I think
