Cleaning up the game of visual clutter

28 September 2014 - 05:45 PM

Watching the tournament made me realise something - the game looks like a fucking christmas tree on fire.

Like what the fuck is going on here. The warlock is obviously fucking purple. The guy we're looking at is grey/blue with some kind of circular thing going out from his body and some more shit is going on on the ground. There's two guys running around in the background, but you can't really make out what the guy is due to some bubbly stabby thingy around his character.

There's so many spells, auras and other flashy things that just makes the game look like a big blur of flashing lights. It's impossible to make out what the heck is going on based on what you can actually see on the screen.

If we want more players to watch and get interested in the game, I think we need to clear up the spell effects. When enchants first came around they were cool, but we didn't really stop to think if it was a good idea in the long run. We just kept doing bigger and more flashy things.

Moreover, I found the lack of healthbars over people really disruptive. Can't we look a bit towards the MOBA scene and figure out how to better show what's going on with each character?

Project Titan: Cancelled

Blizzard Cancels Titan Project
You might recall that Blizzard "reset" the Titan project back in mid 2013. Mike Morhaime confirmed to Polygon today that the project is now cancelled.
  • The team set out to make another amazing MMO after World of Warcraft, but they didn't find the fun or passion.
  • Metzen said the decision to cancel Titan was excruciating, but cancelling projects has always resulted in better quality work.
  • Right now Blizzard doesn't want to spend time working on another MMO.
  • Hearthstone and Heroes of the Storm helped Blizzard realize they don't have to work on giant projects.
However, it doesn't mean that the development team is no longer working on something. Multiple sources who seem to point towards a new unannounced project from Blizzard that would be codenamed Prometheus and could be another project built around a new license for Blizzard.

Keep in mind that this last bit is very much unofficial and unconfirmed.
