    What do people think about the health bars being green for Radiant and red for Dire?

    It is different from Dota 1. Honestly I think the green to orange to red, as your health gets lower is a better system.

    Is the green for Radiant and Red for Dire supposed to help learners differentiate who is on your team and who is the enemy?

    i think its that way only if ur spectating, otherwise your team is green and opponent is red.

    Yes, but I think that it is unnecessary and that the old system works the best.

    Are you joking ?

    Having the same health bar for evryone is the worst thing that could happen for a competitive game.

    In Dota 2 it's clear, if a thing is red, it's your ennemy, if a thing is green, it's your ally.

    Making things harder than it should be is fucking silly.

    green for allies and red for enemys is the best imo.

    No one had any problems at all with same colored health bars in DotA 1. :facepalm:

    Current Dota 2 set-up: Red for enemies; green for allies.

    Opinion: No problem with it. It's better than Warcraft's system.

    Mulit-colored HP bars that change according to HP percentage can get confusing and they can be quite misleading.

    Red HP Pudge may have more than a thousand HP.

    Because you're used to.

    That's just it.

    Any other players don't want to be forced to have the same old stupid features that you seems to like.

    Disagree. The health bars does a better job indicating the enemy rather than trying to memorize enemy's colors.

    I wouldn't mind if they added yellow/purple or a blue for neutrals tbh....

    Gets a bit confusing when in a jungle ect.

    Actually i'm sure most people agree with me that we did have a problem with those healthbars. Looking excactly like creeps not to mention same color is just major bleh. Personally i really like the new colors and different looking healthbars than creeps have.

    You mean nobody cared because there was not the option to change it.
    There are some things that can and should be dropped and improved to make it a better game. Making the game visually clearer is one of those things and that includes not only effects but also color-sheme and HP-bars.
