    The new HUD is bad and should be changed at some point

    I'm not going to look all over my screen for information, especially when I'm paying attention to other things going on in the game. In an era where you're trying to give survivors/killers more information, you're giving them less.

    The new HUD is bad and should be changed at some point

    There is good and there is bad in this new HUD. And since you didn't add a medium answer i'm forced to be negative ;(

    GOOD

    • the hook count for survivors
    • the hook count for killers
    • the status effects in colors ( great for the upcoming colorblindness modes )
    • the portraits : could be less generic and more an actual portrait of the survivor cosmetics ( could be generated during the loading screen )
    • generators remaining : as a CSGO player i'm used to have the info on the middle top part of my screen so i'm ok with this change

    BAD

    • the hook count for killers : the general number of hooks is good but i still don't see why killers don't have the hook per survivor one, it definitly wouldn't make people tunnel more or less just give more informations and help making good decisions (leave the chase to stop that survivor who is dead on hook from finishing the gen next to you) + it also make the portraits HUD really asymmetric with the names of the survivor so low.
    • the placement of the portraits : being at the top-middle left side is hiding a great portion of screen that could be use to either see the killer coming or survivor scaring a crow in the distance + i can see it also affecting people playing SWF with the Discord HUD overlapping it = that's why it was good in the bottom left of the screen where you lose no visual informations over your environment
    • the name of the survivor : easier to see than before so GOOD but might want to move them slightly to the right so the Obsession claws don't actually touch it it would be more pleasing to the eyes ^^
    • the bleeding/hooked/BT/deepwound bar : it's not as visible as it use to be and being next to the portraits and not centered under it make it hard to see when a survivor is reaching struggle phase if on hook + also harder to see if a down survivor is getting picked up or healed from the ground
    • injured state : the scar effect is definitly a better version that the glowing red one from PTB so that is good, but there is room for improvment. It's still hard to see since the HUD isn't as close to the eyes as it use to be especially on big monitor or TV if you play on console. Maybe add a sound effect ? so when you hear it you immediatly look at the HUD to see who is injured ?


    Overall it's just a matter of placement and small size changes ^^

    the location of the new HUD is horrible, tired the view and distracts you from the game. It hides a lot of information (birds that fly, assassin that comes) not to mention that it does not leave space for the cameras when streaming without obscuring some data from the viewers. The bleed bars are very small. The photo of the characters is fine, but they are generic and have nothing to do with the cosmetic they carry, not providing the information for which it is supposed to be created. Everything was better as before in the lower left corner where looking once all the information of the game was obtained.

    They said they wanted console feedback, I'm on PS4 and look where I voted.

    So far only 1% of people said they love it and 4% voted to leave it its fine, so only 5% of people are on board with the new UI that makes 95% of the community against it

    Love the new HUD

    I like the look of it, I just hate the layout. Put it all in one corner instead of across the screen and I'd be happy

    Everything looks nice except the high res portraits of the characters (who are ugly as #########) there are simple minimalist portraits that are just white and you can distinguish the characters easily, it might even save resources, someone made a really good example of this already so devs have the ability to do it too. The location of the HUD however is absolute trash. Having your eyes dart around for information while also keeping an eye on the game for the killer/survivor moving around as well as skill checks is going to have people going cross eyed. It's already given me a migraine from a single game. It would be so much better if it was at least positioned like before so we can just look at 1 place and with a single glance and see pretty much everything you need. I don't even want to imagine playing killer where you have to pay so much more attention to who is up or down and at survivor's statuses along with the limited vision killers have whil searching for survivors and following scratchmarks while trying to keep an eye on other things. This isn't an mmorpg where we have 200 skills and buffs/debuffs that has to fit somewhere on the screen. There is very little that needs to be shown, there is no need at all to spread it all over the place.

    Please for the Love of God, change it back to the old layout. I don't know who thought this was a good idea. I don't want to be juggling my eyes around to see how many gens, hooks, points being added etc. The update with the hook ticker is fine, just move the placement.

    The new UI is godawful, and the blatant lies from BHVR saying they can't revert it is just sad. I don't know why they even bother with the PTB anymore if they aren't going to listen to the community and change what needs to be changed. And them saying " Oh BuT cOnSoLe PlAyErS nEeD tO tEsT iT" is also a fat load of #########. I'm a console player and just seeing pictures, not even playing it, makes stomach turn. I could tell it was going to be bad the day the PTB came out.

    Also I hate having to look everywhere on my screen just to figure out where is the gen counter

    @Peanits @not_Queen look at the votes. do you not see the problem here? stop making unnecessary changes nobody wanted, you're literally killing your game.

    I wouldn't mind the new HUD if it wasn't for the fact that everything is so spread out. Looking all over the screen for information makes me dizzy and gives me a horrible headache, So much so that I have to take a long break before going into another match. If they would have kept everything at the bottom left of the screen, I would have liked the new HUD much more.

    Love the old one, new one is really hard to see gen’s numbers, ppl’s status, also the time bar is way too small Idk do they there to see or what. Why all of the elements are located everywhere? The old ver UI was perfect itself. Plz bring back old UI. New icon when survivers hurts, looks too cheesy

    I wish there were an option to be neutral about it. Having played with it for a couple of days, I don't hate it as much as I thought I would. I kind of wish the gens weren't marooned at the top and I dislike the killer hook counter on principle, since it feels like, if I'm making such good progress on hooks, the entity should stop being disappointed.

    I think there's room to improve it in the future, but it's not ruining my experience.

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Mathew says in the next stream,”have you tried playing a different game?” Because I’m sure he thinks that “They’ve done a pretty good job so far.”

    I understand the reasoning behind why people hate it so it's not that I think it's 100% fine as is, but personally I've had 0 problems with it because I'm not given too much info by looking in 1 spot.

    진짜 그나마 데바데니까 어짜피 망겜하며 했는데 이건 뭐 배를 덜처맞은놈을 ui로 설정했나 진짜 니네는 돈을 허투로 사용한다 매판마다 ui보면 하기 싫어진다 돈 조금 벌었다고 게임 개판 만드냐

    I'm all for the change but how they messed it up so bad is beyond me it feels like I'm playing a mobile game on my TV and the information blocks my view enabling killers to sneak up and get hits easier but it's not game breaking

    I don't hate the new UI but I certainly don't love it. I could get used to it if in forced to, but I feel like this new one takes up too much of the screen. I liked having everything on the bottom left and am used to looking there for info, not the top left.

    I don't like it at all.

    I can understand the character icons being on screen, but the layout is not 'at a glance'.

    The old set-up worked perfectly fine.

    At the very least, give us the option of switching between the new and old HUD.

    Agreed! I play on PS4 and the info is so far apart I feel disoriented playing as a killer. I used to see everything in the bottom left corner and know how I was doing quick before returning to the chase. I lose sight so much now having to look up (and I mean UP) on my TV for either survivors or gen status. I like the character images, and can live with the new status choices, but please move it all back to the lower left! That was agreat space and kept all the info in one nice neat space to keep myself updated and able to track movement at the same time.

    +1 to revert. It's horrible.

    I cannot track a single thing on the new HUD, I'll give it some more time, but the lines are too thin and indistinct, the information is far too spread out, and the symbology is far less clear. I do like the addition of the hook meter, but I wish it was just tacked onto the old style hud. Like this is bad enough to be a game-breaker for me.

    no need to be insulting, which btw shows that you can´t be a grown-up...

    they actually "changed" the whole game with this patch. It´s just another game now for me, which I do not enjoy anymore...
