Last week, a preview of the new Heroes of the Dorm observer interface that would be used to maintain compliance with ESPN's broadcast requirements. Today, changes were made in response to overwhelming viewer feedback, including a modified mini map by popular request.
The original interface demo had this appearance:
Version 1 - no mini-map, very un-wow.
The new interface adds a full-time mini-map, glowing indicators for when a player's Heroic/ultimate ability is available for use, and a full-screen mini-map to quickly see where all the players are when major engagements conclude:
Version 2 - such mini-map, very wow.
Full-screen (slightly less mini) mini-map.
The original Blizzard post has been updated with this information as well.
