Patch 5.4 PTR: Latency and FPS info moved to a new home


With the appearance of the Blizzard In-game Store icon in the menu, something had to go. And the icon that took the hit was the little computer monitor picture that had previously held information about latency, framerate, bandwidth, download information, and allowed players to open up the in-game menu with a single click.

Now, first and foremost, it's worth bearing in mind that Blizzard representatives have suggested pretty strongly that the in-game store will launch, initially at least, on Asian servers only. So, it's possible that this might not be a problem for US and EU servers. It might never be a problem, or at least, not for a while.

Nonetheless, Blizzard's devs have thought of this. While you can't click on it to open the menu any more -- you can just hit Escape instead -- the tooltip showing this useful information on mouseover has been rehomed, and now lives on the red question mark -- the customer support icon. Don't look at my numbers, though. I know it's bad.
