Update 4.0.4
18-5-2017

-Made changes so that our servers can handle much larger numbers of simultaneous players once we go free to play. This contains some rather complicated tech so we expect we’ll be doing further fixes to this in the coming days.
-Slightly increased the in-game scoreboard size.
-Items bought icons are now always shown in the scoreboard when your account level is 6 or higher.
-Fixed that you would sometimes still get invite suggestions when your party was already full.
-Fixed that poor connection popup would appear partially behind other menus.
-Fixed a rare crash while waiting for matchmaking.

I mean it's certainly better functionality-wise, but still lacks a certain flair that the old one had.

It still just looks pretty barebones and empty in comparison.
Also I think it might(?) still be a little too small.

Also fix ally taunts please. :rocco:

Why not just make the items being visible at all times an option?

I get that it could overwhelm new players but artificially hiding it then suddenly changing it when they reach level 6 seems dumb to me

Not sure if showing the items on the scoreboard at level 6 is a great idea. You'd just confuse new players with this change.

And also just as a side note, UI options like the status hud, shield numbers and ability tooltips really should be on by default. People who care enough to look for the option to disable then will disable them. Options like these that are disabled by default are pretty much hidden features for new players.

Thanks for another iteration of scoreboard but make it bigger, please. Old scoreboard was huge compared to this, why do you guys insist on leaving so much empty space?

Still, thanks for continuous support and your hard work.

It was much bigger when 4.0 released, but then people started complaining that it was too big so Ronimo made it smaller. Now people complain it's too small :aylaroll:

I really just preferred the old scoreboard, I didn't see a need to completely revamp it when the only confusing thing was the character being played. Once again; use the old mini-icons in a character column to the right of the player, and KEEP portraits in. Portraits need to be on the scoreboard to a) characterise your player and b) we pay awesomepoints for them. If portraits are only on the main menu there is no point to ever buying them. Awesomepoint sink gone = bad.

I will just repost here my old, awesomely drawn scoreboard suggestions:

Still, I prefer the current one to the one we had in 4.0.0. Thanks for listening to feed back of the players.
The thing is, 4.0.0. looked much better and required just minor fixes to be as useful as current is.
