If they could build this one everyone hates, they can get started right away building a new one that is more palatable and not reviled. I understand they may have scrapped the old system but they can always move forward building a new one that is more acceptable to the entire DbD community.
It's just the HUD, not such a big deal to gripe about. It doesn't change the way the game is being played.. Anyone who could complain about such a low priority feature doesn't deserve to play video games.
I don’t follow the testing branch, but usually log on and play 10 - 15 matches after work per day. Logged in today and see there’s an update. Get into my first game and see these terrible changes - it’s literally like a different game (and I don’t mean that in a good way). It seems silly I know, but I can’t even bring myself to play anymore.
The devs know better than us what we are supposed to like. In time we'll have to fall in line and like the new HUD. /sarcasm
It's real bad now. I can barely keep up instead of the old easy to understand organization it's all over the place and hard to see.
I appreciate the devs efforts but it might be the worst thing to ever happen to this game so far. I hope they fix it.
Signed, not that they will do anything anyways
I signed in to complain about the update UI but I decided to up vote this instead. Occasionally, BHVR sends out survey invites. BHVR could have considered sending a survey or something for this very purpose.
I hope it gets changed because it's awful.
Apparently they know what's best for us
Tbh I only see people complaining after youtubers complain so I literally don't think this is anything but piggy backing.
IMO I love the new HUD.
It makes it look less clunkier. Yes there are some issues like how can I tell if they are injured etc.
But otherwise it is a fairly good HUD. I love how clean it looks. It gives it more of a realism aspect to the HUD. (Example: CoD Zombies HUD, Alien Isolation HUD, etc.)
Like it's less clunked together and more pleasing for the eyes imo.
But yes we need to have an update to customize the HUD the way we want to. To place where we want certain pieces etc.
I'm all for the change but they really messed up here the information I need is all over the screen as well as trying to keep an eye out for killers who are sneaking up on me is just overwhelming I'm sure given time it'll get easier but it really annoys me how I feel like I'm playing a phone game on a TV it shouldn't feel like that at all.
And? Their complaints are still valid.
I was complaining about it as someone looking to return to DbD when things got better. I know how garbage it is just by hearing about it.
I'm a console player and I don't mind it. I'll get used to it and not cry online because my game was changed slightly and threatening too stop playing because they moved a bar.
I voted that its fine don't worry only 75% now so looks like its going down. It's here to stay. Now stop crying because some icons moved.
I agree, this UI needs to go. Reasons why have already been posted at least 100 times by now so I'm not gonna waste my time typing it
96% look at all 4 it's 1+1 1+1 maybe u should read it first?
So it was initially a lie that they couldn't revert the changes, to now they can revert the changes but they dont want to cause it would require actual time and work.
Wow these devs continue to shock me by their incompetence and inability to admit failure
We've done it comrades! Look at the banner!
I can’t be asked to put in that much effort
I made this one yesterday:
That image is pretty much perfect. Solves the "which name is what character" problem, and doesnt clash with the rest of the Ui like the character render portraits.
Just bumping this post back up :)
I'm not the first one whose said this but, they pitched the idea to their higher ups and they have to make them think that it was worth the investment. Otherwise, it would just be "hey you remember all the work we did the last 2 months? Well the people dont like it so were just gunna scrap it. I'd still like my paycheck next tuesday though" that wouldn't go over well
Yeah, they could've stopped it instead of fully commiting to it but they decided to be stubborn... Also, that's not how coding works anyways. The old UI system doesn't just vanish or doesn't work anymore. They can revert it, they just don't want to.
This ui is the worst. It's like a cheap game played on a cell phone. I can't even see it well. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst.worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst. worst.
I really like the new graphics on the maps but ur right the new UI is terrible! Please put it back the way it was and keep the new icons it's way too spread out if ur playing on a bigger screen u literally have to move ur head around just to see everything the old version was far superior
Exactly we're not complaining because we want to play another game we're passionate about this game and we want the best version of it and the new UI isn't working hopefully the devs will listen to their community and change it back or give option to use old version or new version.
ok thats alright
