    Kill Messages and Spree Messages - WHY in the middle of the screen?

    Hi,

    i find it very distracting that all those kill messages/spree messages/double/multi/mega kill messages are right above the crosshair, basically still in the middle of the screen.
    whats the purpose of that? during some situations there are just text messages in the middle of the screen. (resolution is 1080p btw)


    greetings.

    Same, I'd like it to be placed more near towards the top of the screen. The 'You were killed by' text is somewhat large, and should be the same as 'you killed' sign.

      Yes, the optimal solution I can tell you (or at least "very close" to optimum) would be something like this:

        I've never heard anyone say anything positive about the current placement. The devs (Joe) is aware of this complaint.

          Why did we go from having kill feeds from the top in UT2004...




          To Top to Center in UT3....




          To Center in UT4/New UT?



          Just throw the kill feed back to the top-center like in UT3, problem solved.

            they should make it like in UT2004, to make it look cleaned up again.
            right now, i cant enjoy UT4 because of the massive text overload above the crosshair (especially when people got longer nicks or you get killed and frag someone right after it)


            to be honest, i dont care who i frag or who fragged me mostly. :P

              Just wait until UT5, it'll be over the crosshair aha

                I agree with the Ut2004 solution.

                And also, this is not an FPS, but it's another example of this solution. It would be impossible to play that game with mid-screen text

                  Both UT3 and UT2k4 works just fine to me but in UT4 when both appear right in the most important field of view portion, then it definitely feels "wrong".

                      Hah, I like how it has just gradually drifted down. UT6 it will be over your health.

                        Probably by UT7 it'll be in your hud. D:

                        Also, looks like the first UT had the spree messages like UT3 did.

                            Yes, thats the point im thinking mostly about.
                            When i played yesterday instagib on a semifull server it was totally disgusting with this text in the middle of the screen.
                            Sometimes i didnt say anything because of this text.
                            Do we have the ability to change this by ourselves?
