The current suggested fix for the issue is too play without the UI showing you can do this by pressing Ctrl+U hope that helps and may the force be with you

The chat helped me out now I cant see anything but there's no flashing hotbar at least, the GM has sent my feedback on, hopefully we will get a fix soon!
I laughed till I started to choke. I made the mistake of picturing myself trying to heal in pvp without my ops frames going. The point to moving all over in pvp is to be harder to hit and click target, so I'd have to cycle through everybody with ctrl+tab. I don't know why I found this funny but I did. Just felt like sharing I guess. lol Nice solution Mr. GM!

I'm having massive issues with the new visuals. I've played mmo's for years and any decent player is always chaining their abilities, meaning my entire bar is always darkened due to something always being on the GCD. The easiest solution for this in my opinion would be the great big white bar staying around to show the time left on the GCD, but NOT blacking out the abilities for a GCD, only for something on a CD. I really hope this is fixed very quickly, because as previous viewers have stated I don't even have any idea beforehand if I have the resources to use my move anymore, it's just one solid dark bar.

Sorry? The area of the flashing is very small.

Compare it to most AoE effect it is ridiculous.

They've chucked the baby out with the bathwater. This new system is too much - pretty, I'll give it that, but too much.

The animations effectively obscures which abilities I have available when the global cooldown is complete. I appreciate the effort, but this you can tell this is a bad idea, because it's really obviously a bad idea.

Gave me a headache, quit in the middle of dailies. Why is a numerical counter so hard to implement?

Logged in this morning, had no idea. After an hour I started getting sick to my stomach from looking at my skill-bar. I actually had to stop playing! In all honesty, who comes up with this stuff? And who in their right mind actually approves it?

Really, I have no idea what skill is usable and when. All the flashing just makes me nauseous. I don't need my "Sprint" icon or any other icon flashing like a strobe-light to remind me I can't use it, OK?

For the love of the galaxy just let the community have access to the UI coding and BW will never have to worry about it again. You can put the UI devs on something useful like bug fixes or developing ideas to help the game.

LMFAO. I really hope the GM was trolling. That's pretty funny.
