    Default Love everything I see except one weird thing: +50 =/= 50+

    Why in the world is the plus symbol following the points scored? That doesn't make a lick of sense, and it looks totally wrong. Other than that, I am all over this game.

    50+ = 50 or more
    +50 = um ... +50

    I agree, the "+" should be before the number. (I.E. +50)

    it's really such an odd thing to screw up. there are a bajillion games out there, and every single one of them does it the right way, including other epic games.

    i may end up getting this game for both pc and 360. i want to play on pc, but only one of my friends has a decent pc. if they don't fix this, i will be writing my very first mod. :P

    The skillshot scores were +(number) in the original footage and screenshots. Yeah, it's nitpicky of us to get all up in arms about it, but still.

    My advice to PCF? Change it back, or else...

    I think his way is dumb. There are some elements you can play with and some you can't. This UI designer needs to find another way.

    First off, I'd say using lower case letters would help people visually parse things more easily. They could move the number to the line below the words or they could change the color/size. Of course, putting the + in front of the number would make it incredibly easy. Then, in the lower left corner where it's added to the score, size/color differentiation would help.

    As it stands, it reads all in the same color and size as 1000 50+. I don't know how that is more balanced than 1000 +50. And put some commas in there. What do modern UI designers have against using commas every 3? It makes it so much easier to read the score with a quick glance, which is important when playing a fast-paced game.

    Now that I find there is some "genuine" justification for doing things the wrong way, I'm going to have to get really nitpicky. Sorry, all.

    Current:
    * VOODOO DOLL 250+

    1250 250+

    I think it would look better as:
    * Voodoo Doll
    . .+25

    1250 +250

    Additionally, if you look at the scoring, there is something weird about it. The score is tallied immediately, but the HUD has the appearance of banking like PGR's kudos. When you see 1480 10+, the 10 has already been added to the total, and it fades out slowly. To me, if the number stays there, it means it's waiting for me to add before banking with a multiplier/combo streak. Why would it hang around for 3-4 seconds after it's already been added? And if balance is so important, why not have smaller numbers with the plus to the left of the score to mirror the style of the ammo counter?

    because it's wrong.

    try it with money.
    $50 vs. 50$

    One looks natural because it's correct. The other looks stupid because it's incorrect. It's not so small when it's such an important and frequent aspect of the game. Those scoring bonuses pop up pretty often.

    'Headshot 50+' looks stupid where as 'Headshot +50' looks better. The 'Headshot +50' indicated that you are getting 50 points added because you got the headshot. 'Headshot 50+" looks like your getting 50 + headshots. LoL xD

    tried the demo. good stuff ... but could we at least get the option to move the plus to the left or maybe eliminate it?

    i can't not see it. it's flashing up on screen constantly. it just doesn't make any sense. look at every other game ever made that included a plus with the points, and you'll find it to the left of the number because that's the way it should be written to communicate the idea of adding points. some UI designer needs to wake up to the fact that reality takes precedent regardless of how fantastical in nature the game may be.

    You can always just remove the skillshot pop up from the HUD.

    Although i wish they would change the way the pop ups happen, like if 3x or more of the same skill shot comes up it eliminates the excess numbers of popups and just shows like

    3X
    AFTERBURNER +350

    instead of


    3X 3X 3X
    AFTERBURNER +250 AFTERBURNER +50 AFTERBURNER +50

    along with the other ones that show up along with them

    It would clear up a lot of clutter in the UI, but its nothing i'd get worked up over.

    like i said, its nothing too bad but its annoying when trying to see if a skillshot popped up.

    Like after drinking the booze, i could have sworn the "homie missile" skillshot didnt pop up, but my nephew did
