Division window in port

So, once again:

 

Could @MrConway, @Tuccy, @Crysantos or @Kandly tell me why the previous division panel had to be changed and exactly how the new implementation was deemed superiour?

 

Because there doesn't pass a single gaming session in divisions without someone complaining about the new division window and for good reasons:

It minimizes after games, meaning you have to manually select it anew all the time.

Even trimmed down to the absolute minimum it takes up a huge amount of space in port view and when minimized you have to bring it up again just to see what ships your mates are bringing.

It's tied to the chat system which is barely working at the best of times and we already witnessed what happens if the chat server crashes ... people can't division up, can't get out of divisions and can't start games when in a division.

 

Meanwhile the previous system was entirely sufficient. People on voice-coms not using the division chat could simply minimize it and that was that, whereas the ship selection window was discretely packed non-obstrusively in the port UI. It was also fully functional when the chat wasn't working (hint hint).

 

So please, can we PLEASE have the old system back? The new one, for lack of charming descriptions, sucks balls.

Plus you still can't see the full name of your division mates if they are a bit longer. So there are zero advantages compared to the old system.

In the future please don't attempt to fix stuff that already works!! There is plenty of broken stuff that you can work on. Please revert to old since this is pure garbage

There was no reason to change it, and the new one just straight up sucks... All for taking a step back to the old one :cap_like:

No good saying about it in this forum, you need to go to the feedback on update forum.

 

already asked the question there.

@MrConway Please, Please change the Division window back to how it was, it was fine as it was, it was not in the way like it is now, WHY CHANGE SOMETHING THAT WAS NOT BROKEN!!!, please change it back.

 

I can't promise there will be any changes, but we have forwarded this particular feedback to our devs already.

Although new system reeks of incompetence, you don't need to actually do anything to get ready for the new battle. Just click 'ready' button on top (same as 'battle' button). No need to open division window again. :Smile_hiding:

But - I can't stress it enough - new system sucks indeed...

Aye, but you don't see what ships your divisionmates selected unless you have that window open.

Another classic "If its not broken, break it" situation from a WG dev team.

 

I mean this must have been passed off by some one to get in the patch right ?, obviously not some one who plays the game on a regular basis to know how unnecessary and annoying this 1 change is.

Yeah +1 for changing it back. I was curious when they did it and assumed it would improve lag in port but if anything it is more cumbersome. Yeah I know wrong thread but hey its here so might as well get my oar in.

The new one seems to always be in the way of something, so you either need to keep it minimised, which makes it useless, or you need to move it every time you change port tabs.

 

Change back, please.

Maybe this is WG's way of nerfing divs. Make creating and maintaining them so finicky that most people won't bother doing so. :Smile_trollface:

What they all said. 

There was nothing wrong with the old window and there's a lot wrong with this one. Please change it back it's the opposite of an improvement.

Having a Razer Naga (12 button mouse) I am getting pretty annoyed as my 3 button is 'speak' in TS....I just fill the chat section of the division box with a million 3's every time I talk in port :Smile_Default:  Change it back please.

 

EDIT - Although, if the ingame control setting changes currently on the test server go live, this part of the forum will be filled with far more than a complaint about a little box. :Smile_sceptic:  Especially for us lefties.

Funny ... I use Razer Elite and I use side button (dont ask me about the number) to talk on TS, yet nothing gets pushed to chat.
