The new interface is just too much. The old interface was easier. Now we need to do more clicking than playing..

I don't like it. And let me explain why:

Some time ago, all premium ships (or most of them, anyway, can't really remember) were present in the client for everyone to see in the tech trees. You could see the armor, the parameters of the ship etc just like you would with a regular silver ship. Then they removed this 'feature' for the longest time before bringing it back, in the worst manner possible, with this patch.

 

Yes, the interface is... interesting to say the least, but it takes ages to load, everything is hidden behind multiple clicks whereas before was much more straightforward and simple, yes, simple. Simplicity isn't bad, WG. Simplicity is good. Why complicate things with a messy, laggy UI when things worked just fine before? Aren't there more pressing matters to attend to, than bringing questionable 'upgrades' to how Armory looks? Is matchmaking really fine? Is the overall balance fine? Are there enough maps,  are these maps diverse enough? Enough game modes? No? Then why was this a priority, may I ask?

 

I don't like how it looks (like a mobile pay 2 win game), I don't like how it runs (like a fat child at the Olympics), to be fair, I don't really like anything about it, considering how much more intuitive the old UI was and considering we HAD the option to check out premium ships before buying them by clicking them in the tech trees where they WERE present (but THEY WERE REMOVED for some reason, leaving just a handful of them).

 

Also, might be a bug, or not, while you can see the armor of the ships in the Armory, you can't see the actual values while hovering your mouse over the ship like you COULD with ships in the port. If this is intended, then it's really stupid. Maybe I'm stupid and haven't figured out why those values don't show up when you hover the mouse over certain parts of the ship, I'll keep trying to see if that's the case.

 

Anyway, an awful 'addition' to the game, a waste of everyone's time. Your employees' for having to design it and ours' for having to spend ages to find anything in that mess.

Hello

I find the new interface aesthetically more pleasing than the previous one, and I don't see the huge amount of extra clicks we have to make in order to access information.

I like that the new "wallet" thingy, that gives you a clear view of what your available resources are.

I like the fact that now you can actually see a ship before purchasing it (why it hasn't always been like this is beyond me), although you can't see the actual armour values by hovering over the piece of armour you are interested in.

Ad why not let players see the modules/upgrades/consumables before buying the ship?

I like a lot the way the Customisations have been moved all together and divided by category. Maybe I have some mental illness, but tidy things help me find my way around, and this does the job

They have finally changed the "popular" to "featured". I've always thought "popular" was a scam, it just meant what WG wanted your attention to be drawn to. Now it's more transparent, and it's clear it's WG pushing things to you, not other players.

 

Now the bad news

I'd love to have a way of selecting a currency/temporary resource and have before my eyes what I can buy with it (to be then filtered by ship, container and whatnot)

The doubloons/premium section is still a mess. There is no recognisable rhythm or rhyme to the way things are (dis)organised and you can't filter by the resource you are putting your money into

The interface tends to be rather slow to load, but I've noticed it isn't always equally slow. Go figure...

 

To the other forum members that have posted your ideas

Yes, this was not a priority, but it's a welcome piece of news. After all, WG have clearly stated they won't fix MM, because they think is working as intended (they should, but they won't). Other things could be done, but I'm not sure the people that worked on this one are the same working on new/modified maps. Then there is the never ending issue of balance...:cap_fainting:

I didn't find that "Now we need to do more clicking than playing". There are a few extra clicks to be made, but the whole thing is so much more streamlined that I'm actually saving time when navigating the armoury

 

In closing, as usual, kudos to the WG Art Department, you never cease to surprise me with new and cool looking additions to the game

The new tooltips, filters and display of sequential bundles are nice. I don't like the change to the vertical category display on the left though. The names of the categories were hidden in the tooltips even though there is plenty of room to show them all the time. Nesting Upgrades, Signals, Camouflages and Patches under Customisations is also a regression, resulting in more clicks being required to reach these categories.

Meanwhile, WG did not add any new ships THAT ACTUALLY EXISTED, much less ships in low to middle tiers and buyable with coal.

(I have enough coal, I DON'T WANT a Georgia.) :cap_horn:

as many others here have said, the new armory is causing massive lagspikes, sometimes it even causes the game to totally freeze up.

it is a nice touch the new armory, cant deny that, but the lag is so much that it by far outweighs the usefullness of it, so far i've used the website instead of the in-game armory just because of the lagging it causes.

When is it coming back.

 

Hi Captain, 

Unfortunately, at the moment, there is no info about if or when the Chesire is coming back in the Armory.

I am no longer able to use the ship section in the armory. It starts loading, then it freezes. Only thing that works on that screen is the exit button top right.

Hi Captain, 

It could be a problem related to the installation of the new update: try to repair the client and to run the game in safe mode and see it fixes the issue.

@TheWarJac

 

same problem for me, with a fresh install.

Safe Mode does not fix anything.
