Previewing our new esports HUD 

Wanting to help declutter the broadcast, Riot is previewing a new esports HUD and is asking for feedback on it!

"TL;DR: We’ve been working on some improvements to the broadcast HUD to make esports matches clearer and easier to watch. Still a work in progress, but we wanted to share some of our early thoughts with you on what an updated HUD could look like and get your feedback. Read on for some more details and a progress video to learn more. 
The current spectator HUD was released more than four years ago when League of Legends esports was still in its infancy. We think we can improve on the original design and make it easier and more fun for you to follow matches with all the information you need. 
We've created a new HUD specifically with esports broadcasts in mind that we’re starting to share with players for feedback and wanted to share with you a sneak peek at our progress so far. We had two major goals when we started investigating new designs: 
  • Get rid of the clutter and optimize for viewing the action. The current HUD takes up a lot of space on the screen, and often covers up important gameplay. To try to solve this, we’ve rethought the layout and have cut down and consolidated the elements on the screen.
  • Enable you to more quickly and easily understand the state of the game. At the moment, it’s not always easy to follow stats and info during a pro match. We’ve taken a pass at everything from readability of ult cooldowns to easier comparisons between lane match-ups. 
Here’s a video that shows some of our work so far to create a cleaner and clearer viewing experience. We’re still polishing many of the features and incorporating elements you’re used to seeing on the broadcast, but it’s a good early guide to the evolving design.
We’re continuing to test the new HUD out and gathering feedback, and will follow up with more information on when you can expect to see this debut. In the meantime, please comment on how you watch and what you like and dislike about both the current spectator HUD and the new HUD."
