Why is it so compact? I can never tell if people's health is going down or near death, unless I genuinely move my head into that direction and look at it for several seconds. It's way too narrow. What was wrong with the long bars we had before? Did someone seriously look at these things and say:
"Hmm, I know what's wrong, we need them to be less *in-your-face*."

Way too spacious, small and filled with light colors that don't help you keep track of it in your subconscious at all. This is a change for the worse. Needs to go.
And get rid of the stupid borders surrounding the bars. They cover up the ends.

Personally I would just like the option to choose between pre and post u11 UI. since I'm sure there are people on both sides of the love/hate issue this would be something to make everyone happy.

Works for me.

I don't see why it has to be one or the other. Oh yeah I do. It means work for Turbine.
Gee, sorry, I'll just go back to paying your monthly fees like a good little ****.

I'm having the same troubles keeping an eye on red bars on my healer. Seems like the bars are too short and too spaced out for me to have all 6/12 in one single focal point. That being said, I'll give it another week or two to see if I can adjust to the new look.

Even if you get used to it, it's still 'worse'. Change is one thing, change for the worse is another.

Agreed the new ui is terrible. Playing a healer now hurts my eyes. Ugh why why why?!?!?!

It's horrible. Horrible enough that I went from loving playing healing classes, to hating the annoyance. I used to be good at multitasking, while keeping an eye on health bars in my peripheral vision. Now it takes longer to see and judge them, and next to impossible when in scenery with a reddish or brownish background.

Seriously, why? Why do this? Just to make room for pets? Artificers get healing abilities, why should their pets have to show up on my screen? My summon doesn't show up on anyone elses.

When you add to this the fact that you can't tell which blue dot is whom anymore, healing is now a major chore, a source of stress and annoyance.

Stuff like this honestly makes me wonder if the people behind the changes know their audience. UI in any computer game is huge. You don't mess with it unless you're sure it's a well-tested improvement.

If anyone at the home office is listening -- you have a great game, but please, consider fixing this ASAP, you've really worsened the game UI.

YMMV, of course.
