I've seen lots of League of Legends client concepts made by other players but they never felt League related. Every other concept was either too minimalistic or too modern.. or both. We should take in mind that League of Legends has it's own beautiful art style and IMO client should adapt to it. Also, it would be much easier for players to adapt to the new client if layout is kept almost the same as in the current client. I've used Summoner's Rift VU, Twisted Treeline, Howling Abyss textures and painted some other stuff by myself. It feels more LOL-like now in my opinion. User Panel.
User panel (player's general info) is a very personal area and I think it's very important. It shows your current ping, you can change profile icon or status (afk/not afk), see your level progression (xp bar), change your public status message, see your current RP and IP amount. To get to your profile all you need to do is to click a button with your name. Also, now your all notifications and friend list is really close to this area, just under it!Server status.
Status message is now glowing and changing colors! When EUW (or any other region server) is in deep mess you will know it because RED ALERT (I'm talking about color) is going to take your attention! It's also clickable if you want to check server message.Notifications.
Notifications now can be found under player's general information. If there are any notifications, it will always show the latest one and if you want to check all of them you would need to click GREEN icon which will open the list of all notifications in drop-down style.Friend list.
Friend list is also near player's general info. You can toggle between Friend list and Chat room list by the press of one button. Friends current status is always indicated by the color of their information background (green - online and doing nothing; red - afk; yellow - in game or in queue). Friend list button acts the same (shows how many friends are online and open/closes friend list).Spectate LIVE! and News.
A huge area of the client is been taken by these two blocks. I've decided to move them to the center of the client, functionality is the still the same!Store.
Store now has it's own block. You can see there three featured items (two skins and one champion which is on sale). Also, store is now accessible by pressing "STORE" button (duhh...) This area is probably not used in the current client by the players so much.. but now it will be used! >:]Featured Video.
I didn't know if I should even keep that block, but I actually use it sometimes when queue is really long.. Nothing changed that much there, just moved to the different area. It's probably the least used block, that's why it's so far away.
GOING TO UPDATE SOON(TM).
