Jun 1st 2010 9:46PM Mackejin, his needs are my needs. His power aura idea is also a waste. It is flashy, not informative.
I wonder what you mean by streamline because I'm not seeing it. His UF are off center from his action bars which are stacked way to many times causing a mesh of spells. I don't want to have to play "spell-search" and then awkwardly glance to the upper-left or upper-right to see a health bar.
Protip*: If you are having trouble seeing how the unit frames are awkward, imagine them, in the same exact place with the portrait's gone.
If you are going to cluster information, at least cluster them in a manner that won't cause damage to your eyes.
Jun 1st 2010 8:07PM This UI might be "clean" but it isn't efficient. There are way to many action bars showing. Memorize the keybinds and have displayed only what you absolutely need. A Hearthstone keybind, are you kidding me?
Get rid of the portraits, they are a waste of space and viewing area. Another waste of space is the combat log to the right which is completely unnecessary. That skin of sexy map is wasteful and distracting.
Remember, just because you put all of the information towards the bottom center doesn't mean you are being effective. You are just cluttering mostly useless information and causing unnecessary data to load and display on your computer and the game server.
Jan 10th 2010 4:35PM Hello and welcome to your new article. I just wanted to mention that I'm extremely happy that you are more on the theorycraft side of things. While I would have wished for even more numbers and explanations of what gem is best with X stats, I realize that I need to get off my own lazy ass and do it myself.
Surprisingly good article (compared to what is normally on this website) and by the way, Earthsiege Diamonds ARE forever.
