Dota 2 News: The Reasons Why Players Hate The New UI
Dota 2 Patch 7.00 is finally out and players have been craving to see the major changes in the game particularly the new hero, talent system and the new map. But a few hours later, the Dota 2 community is ravaged by fans asking for the return of the old UI. Why? Well, it mainly stems from the changes of several factors which we will be discussing below.
Health and Mana Bar
Players have taken their concern on Reddit asking for the return of the old UI where the HP and MP bar is above the status bar of the Hero. According to some, the new position of the HP and MP bar strains their eyes especially when they're focusing on the enemy target whilst keeping their health in check. This case however, is subjective as many also praise the change which lets them keep track of disables and status effects more effectively. To help augment HP and MP issue, Sir Belvedere proposed this minor tweak to the HUD:

Notificiation Feed: Hero Kills, Roshan Kills, etc.
Now this is an issue that is agreed by many. The Notification feed is now moved to the right instead of its usual position right above the minimap. This caused a lot of eye strain for most players especially for the fact that their eyes' focal point is near the minimap (bottom left) while keeping tab on their main screen. The new change brings more strain to the player's eyes especially if they're trying to move their focus in-between the minimap and the notification feed.
Sized Boxes and Pop ups
You may have noticed the boxes that pop up whenever you click on a structure or a creep which can be disorienting to some. Another pop up is whenever you try to click on an item that is currently on cooldown. This may be subjective but there are still players that activate their items via clicking on their inventory.
According to some players, the new UI feels very small and thus, makes it harder to track on essential information such as the minimap, health, gold, etc. The old UI is bulkier which makes things a lot easier to track on your screen.
