Can we list the particles as “known issue” because they make the game unplayable? Because yeah… this is impossible now.
I’m not even kidding, I tried like ten times now and I just can’t take it. It hurts.
I really hope no one with epilepsy plays this.
Can we get a hotfix? Heck, I’ve grown used to be able to not see the numbers, now also can’t see traits and status effects anymore, but NOT able to see something is nicer than seeing TOO MUCH (as the formerly-flashing button had shown before).
I really, really cannot understand why “Oh, people get a headache from the flashing button, let’s fix it!” inspired “Let’s add lots of flashing particle effects” to happen. Like, I don’t get it.
I understood by now - thanks to the FAQ - that the UI update was necessary to make different languages and the like possible because of the graphics. Makes total sense. And I can see with this update that you guys are working on making the UI more user-friendly. Which is great! You listened about the button and the chest sidescrolling, after all!
…But really, given that the game is now once again unplayable for me, I hope you have another really good explanation (together with a hotfix so that I can play again…) ready for why the particles and new status effects were needed. Because I absolutely cannot fathom it.
I hope this is not my fault. I know I said in the thread about the trait pictures that I wish colors would return to the game now that the UI is all gothic black and depressing. But I meant that as in “please make the UI images more colorful and the borders prettier and border the text so that things are easier for the eyes” and not as in “please make sure I get epilepsy and lose the rest of my already-almost-gone vision with exploding particles which are ten times as bright as the rest of the game”. That’s… a big difference.
I thought that after the hotfix after the first UI update, I would be able to play the game again at least somewhat (with dragons, where I don’t need to see numbers). But now I’m back to not being able to play again.
I don’t comprehend.
Will there be another hotfix or is this the end for good this time?
