In Heroes of Newerth, when you join a game, after you and all others have selected the heroes, there is a count down, after that a screen appears showing all player names on either side of the screen, but with coloured bars moving slowly towards the middle. As the colored bars reach the middle as single digit number appears on them. After all bars reaches the middle, the game suddenly starts. What is the meaning of this screen with bars and numbers and no explanatory text what so ever. No info available on google or in any of the game's guides I have seen.
An image of similar screen can be seen here: http://michaelurvan.files.wordpress.com/2009/10/ebc5d763afba23dbd6611acee5abc92d.png I say similar because, unlike in the image, I see two sets of coloured bars in my PC, one for each team.
