Heart of the Swarm UI Update

Heart of the Swarm UI Update

Blizzard has recently posted an update for Heart of the Swarm, this time announcing a new battle net interface. The entire UI has been streamlined to offer easy access to every menu, and many new statistics have been made available for melee players.

Quote from Blizzard:

The 1.5 patch we released a couple months ago was a major update that included several changes to the menus and the addition of the new Arcade experience. What you might not know is that many of the changes in 1.5 were actually slated to be a part of the Heart of the Swarm expansion. We felt that several features, including Arcade, would be of immediate benefit to players, and decided to release them earlier in the 1.5 patch. Since we weren’t done with the rest of Heart of the Swarm yet, we had to compromise in some areas of the menus to support these features. We weren’t really happy with how this added additional complexity to the menus.

Since then, we’ve continued to work on Heart of the Swarm, and we’ve made some big changes to improve the overall user experience. With the release of the next major Heart of the Swarm beta patch, we'd like to give you an advance look at those changes. These updates will become available to both Wings of Liberty and Heart of the Swarm players once the expansion is live.

    Well... there are lots of talks about HotS failing and things like that. I am not sure if this is a regular QQ but I see lots of threads everywhere, It's good their are bringing some stats back but they need to redesign bnet 2.0 completely like make it like war3 with old features already there... so many of those are missing including

    I could be wrong, but I think it's a reference to the this- http://www.wowhead.com/spell=75614

    I remember a lot of people calling it the "sparkle pony" ingame.

    Then again, they did make that D3 pony level ;)
