^cool ui, ee's ui is a biiiig turn down
I couldn't stand playing a game with that UI... there's so much clutter!
Honestly the UI is 90% in my peripheral vision, so I have no issues as long as I can make things small, which I can. When I use an ability, I look at the icon, not the action bar. When I need to look at the map, I do just that, and not at its frame. I understand where you're coming from. If something like that bothered me too, it'd be hard NOT to look at it.
Maybe a new UI would be interesting, but you have to remember it's all aesthetics. A change in UI (as in appearance, not function) is not going to make a game easier to play other than not having to sub-consciously stare at the frames around everything.
Them's my two-silvers anyway. :V
