I think it looks awesome! Great work alba. The only thing I would consider changing would be to get rid of the dot and "x" showing if a person is alive or not. You already have the icons in the HUD and on the menu the dead players are grey and the alive have hp showing. The dot and x just make it harder to glance and see if the bomb is up or to count the number of kits.

The problem with that is that I had them empty before and with that you have that whole spacing empty for example, if a player has a kit or not you got a big gap, same for a T with the bomb. I like it without too but I feel like it needs to be filled to work. Besides, that's where the upcoming (if ever) ready/notready system will be placed so we need to have that space there. I will still experiment and try to make that look a bit better
Alright, I'm out for now... I'll come back tomorrow to have a look at the thread and look at people's feedback and write down the good ideas
well done man!
btw alba: your old blog design was better ;(
yes yes yoa
I like that idea from the guy on twitter about having assists, would be pretty great to have that on the scoreboard.
I really cant think of a single reason whatsoever to keep both the 'score' and 'kills' columns... you removed the errors column (and rightfully so) because it cluttered things up, and contained useless information that no one cared about. Maybe its just me personally, but i cant see how anyone would care about BOTH of score/kills. Either combine them both into the 1 score column (like 1.6/CSS has, with kills + defuses/plants totalled), or have just the 1 kills column with no +3's (like 1.5 and earlier).. its really not that hard. Simplicity is key, its the reason people love the current 1.6/CSS score tabs and hate the new CSS/CSP ones.
This would then also free up alot of needed space for the money column, which IS something thats useful. Its also my opinion that some more thinking needs to be done for when the money is/isnt displayed. There are situations when you are last alive when you would want to know peoples money, there are also situations when there are several people alive when you would want to know money too. Theres no be all and end all set conditions for when 100% of the time you want to know, or 100% dont want to know, teammates money - it can be useful at practically all times. Removing 1 of the score/kills colums would free up the much needed space for the money column.
One last major problem with this new tab is that, personally, i find it incredibly hard to see the bomb/defuser icons in that they dont really stand out at all compared to the other icons there (the circle, or the X). They're absolutely tiny and need to be done differently. Perhaps the circle/X to the left of the player name for all players could be removed completely so that the defuser/bomb stand out slightly more readily, but im still not sure that would be enough.
Lastly the major problem with the previous CSP tab was that it was very hard to tell who was alive and who was dead at a quick glance, thankfully this seems to have been solved (or atleast improved) but would probably need to be widely tested to make sure. Good work with the buy/team menus they look great, but i still think this tab menu needs alot of work and further simplifying.
Good Job as usual alba!
