Has the profile page been updated as well? I can’t remember seeing it
I’m watching the stream now.
I’ll comment more in detail later but so far I have a concern about the hero menu’s usability on console. It looks like the awful troop menu where you can’t go backwards alphabetically from A pushing left to go straight to Z (if there was a hero class beginning with Z). On consoles it’s a complete pitfa to navigate. A tile based system where everything is on a static screen is far more user friendly. Scrolling sideways like that is impractical and people will feel sick. Oh and your guy needs to look at the colour brown, because that ain’t brown guys! I’ll look forward to seeing the rest of the stream and will comment further. Thanks guys.
Great stream folks. Sirrian and cyrup are a fantastic combo. I love the new chest menus, openings and the ability to open up to 200 at a time. Great job.
Some of the new graphics are fantastic and I am sure you will get there with this ui eventually but please, please please, test it out on console too as currently building teams with it is horrendous.
The guild seal packs are are 1,2+3 keys for the guild. The most expensive one currently gives 4 guild keys. Is this a display bug or an incoming nerf?
I want the search by trait back!!!
You may be the only one who ever used it. I just search for the name of the trait if I desperately need to find troops with that property.
Yeah but on console typing is more laborious then pc especially when you use a controler
There is a pic to show you how it is fun to type on xbox
Yeah, in-game, they don’t even have auto-text suggestions to reduce the pain.
Now that I think about it, I think it’s possible to use my phone keyboard to type, but it is kind of a pain to link my PS4 app. I don’t think I’ve tried it in GOW so I’m not sure how well it works. Might be a possibility though…
Scrolling through 100+ traits to try to get to Necromancy wasn’t exactly fun either.
Still was faster
I have found the keyboards for both PS4 and X1 are very helpful in typing, just my opinion of course, but I think they are well worth the investment long term. I am referring to the mini keyboards that fit on the controller.
Yeah these keyboard work fine i was refering to the controller
The sideways scrolling was horrible on a mobile device or PC, but great on a console. Typing is just the opposite. It is apparently exceedingly difficult to design a single UI that works across all possible devices and input methods, but that is what the devs want to do. Good luck and Godspeed, Infinity Plus Two.
I beg to differ. Sideways scrolling is lousy on everything, but at least we could jump to the end of the list by pressing left.
It seems like they are making little improvements with each pass now, but it is clear from the stream that the console interface is still very much at the back of their minds, at best.
This is a display bug, Guild Elite will still be giving 4 keys.
Sooo…apparently the new UI changes were shown? Anything us people not able to watch the stream for various reasons (mostly technical ones) can see screenshots? I thought @Cyrup wanted to make recaps of the streams somewhere (unless I misunderstood?) and I can’t seem to find them. Am I blind?
Here we go:
Hero Skills menu:
Hero Masteries menu:
Hero Armor bonus menu:
Hero Appearance menu (you can change your name, free the 1st time, with gems afterwards, bottom right button is the Change your Hero menu):
Hero Change your Hero menu:
Hero Class menu:
Hero Inventory menu:
Glory chest menu (same for all other kind of chests, bottom right button is “Open 200 chests”):
When you level up a troop:
PVP menu (Ranked and Casual are almost the same):
New monthly bundle:
Thank you SO MUCH for this! This is super-helpful and must have taken you quite the time to do!
Okay, here my comments:
Overall stuff: I am happy that the changes seem to get rid of the green button in most places and the new green buttons seem to be in a better color (and I hope they don’t flash). Overall, all the grey and black is still super-depressing and I wish the black would at least change to a dark blue, but useability seems to improve. REALLY hoping sidescrolling during chest openings will be gone and REALLY hoping that the board will return to being non-transparent.
Also it seems like the border colors of the troops have not changed, meaning the text on some of them will still be unreadable in the troop menu? That’s sad. Hope the borders will be improved in the future.
Overall conclusion: The UI is making a step in the right direction in quite a few places, though it’s still depressingly dark and the flat look of many things is jarring (and not matching the 3D backgrounds and item symbols well). Also hoping the health problems will fully become erased soon.
They said sidescrolling while opening chests will be gone. Back to vertical, thank god! They mentioned moving placement of gold and (i think) glory chests as well. Gold chests first, bottom left. And now there will be option to open 200 at a time. Kinda cool, especially now that we can scroll vertically again.
Thank goodness! This is such a huge improvement then and takes care of one of the main health issues! I look so much forward to vertical scrolling again! And glad to hear the gold chests will be moved to bottom left; seems more intuitive to me as well. Thanks for the info, this is appreciated!
