I think this is an ideal thread if at all possible to be at the top of the forum page. I don’t think we can do stickies, but I think it needs to keep being reinforced.
The most important aspect of playing games, before anything else, imho, is that the user interface is as helpful as possible. If the use interface is no good, problematic and/or truncated, then it usually gets a hard pass from the curious. To the initiated, it is just unhelpful.
As players playing GOW, we have the medal loadout, that is just simply put, poor.
How can we pass onto the developers that there should not even be a debate, medals should be assignable to teams, in the manage teams area? I don’t really understand - ’ we thought we had a solution but decided not to implement it’. Surely, communication with the player base on a massive QoL feature, would surely have resulted in feedback to simply load medals to a team. It should be like assigning a banner…
An example. I play Raid, I decided I want to run 2 medals of seasons and an ANU menu. I end my run, then go PVP.
I have managed PVP by creating teams for various opponents, as no one team is really not much good to you as a player. Personally from the POV of playing one team constantly, I’m not utilising much in the way of learning and improving my knowledge of the game, skills and least of all overall enjoyment.
So with the medals, it’s extremely frustrating to have to keep going to a global menu and swap medals and play.
So here’s an example. I used my Raid Sigils today, finished off, then went and did a pet, then into PVP. I had already forgotten I’m using my attack loadout, played a few games. Encountered L&D.
Swapped to my surefire 99% team for L&D. Start playing and realise I’m still running the medals of seasons. Long story short, I lose to a strong loop. Streak ends. So, go change my medals to magic and orpheus.
Next battle, encounter Webspinner, Infernal King, Doomed Xbow, Mercy, Frostmage. Swap to a 3rd loadout of medals and different team.
So I roll out the tank team, obliterate it, then the L&D is back up there. Go swap the medals, again for my L&D team and hit play, and of course I forgot to change the team back to the L&D team…
I’m sure this happens for a lot of players. We know the UI is designed as is in explore, as it has been stated.
I don’t attend streams as they are in the middle of the night, but perhaps we can keep banging the drum on this one. I can’t see an economy argument and it is the sort of thing that beta testers are there for, to point out something that could work better, for the enjoyment and satisfaction of players and developers.
Can we change medals to teams please!
