So we have gotten a little taste of the new VG UI so I want to start a new thread for criticisms, specific praises, or wishes for the UI in future updates. I am gonna start this off.
-The play menu looks awesome. Even though the colorful child-like UI does not fit VG it looks VERY clean.
-Bring back setting default modes like last patch where the play menu would instantly have us on either ranked or casual depending on what we played last pls
-The overall color palette does not really fit VG’s feel. I would like the menu to stay true to the professional steam punk/fantasy look VG has while abandoning the simple look and becoming more stylish. An idea I have is making the play button relate to the pink vain crystals from 3v3
-The overall layout is pretty good. Easy to use and adding a bit more style and impact would be great
-The “x” button feels very unresponsive and chats are being difficult, but pretty sure that will be fixed soon as it is a functionality issue
-I do not want the hero icon to be a generic helmet. Bring back the Skarff icon
-Fix the empty space in the home button. With the play button not looking very impressive on it’s own it makes VG look like a cheap game on a first impression.
Overall aesthetic-wise I want the menu UI to be able to blow other MOBAs away. AoV’s UI looks way more stylish than VG’s currently and our current UI makes VG look like another generic MOBA when it is clear that it isn’t when you actually play.
-Probably just me, but the placement of scout cams is awkward considering I keep accidentally pressing the ult button which can REALLY hurt especially if u are using a hero that does not have an aimable ult.
-The emotes feel very cramped especially now that the tactical emotes are much smaller
-Does anyone else have the issue where when we pan with the minimap (I do not use free cam much. Not used to it) and try to tap on an area where you panned to your screen jerks? This bug varies in severity, but when it’s bad it is BAAAD! It royally messes with my focus and I posted a vid on my yt channel showing what I mean when I was talking to our departed boi VideoVillain, so Imma leave a link to it below
Those are my current thoughts! Would like to know what you guys think
