Dear GoW devs,
Sorry for making this specific feedback a separate thread, but this is neither a tech issue nor feature improvement suggestion, I didn’t see this mentioned in any of the many other 1.0.8 threads, and the Likes & Dislikes thread is more of a general discussion than what the name implies, so I’d rather not post there.
This may seem like a little thing compared to all the huge changes and new stuff the patch has introduced, but this is a little thing that mildly annoys me multiple times in every single battle since 1.0.8 was released, so I really need to point it out.
I strongly dislike the choice you made to change the card that appears first when clicking on a troop or hero. It was perfectly fine and it made total sense to me the way it was before. It used to be that you saw the Main Card first, and then you had another tab to check the spell (and more stats such as Magic level). Now, it’s the Spell card first, and the Main Card has become an optional tab just like the new Trait Card. And this is true not just in the battle screen, but even when checking your own troops in any other screen as well.
If I click on a troop, I want to have a better look at its stats, first and foremost; I’m familiar enough with them that I’m not usually wondering what their spell does, or at least it’s not the first thing I want to see. If I click on the opposing hero, I always want to check the player’s level, first and foremost. If they happen to use mana colors that could be several different weapons, I’ll also click on the secondary tab to double-check, but the way it is now, I have to go to a secondary tab every single time to get primary info. When I’m in my own Troop screen, this interface is even less helpful: I click on a troop to check their Main Card, almost exclusively. Secondary info belong on a secondary tab.
Could you please either change it back to the way it was before, with the Main Card as the main tab, and the Spell Card and Trait Card as secondary tabs?
Alternatively, in case I’m in the minority and most other players love to see the spell tab rather than the primary info when clicking on a card, could you give us the choice somewhere in the Settings?
Many thanks in advance for your consideration on this.
I’d also like to add, as I haven’t done so yet in any previous posts since the release, that despite some concerns and issues, I really like the depth this patch has added to the game overall, and I appreciate your efforts to keep the game alive and evolving.
