Just lovely. The CD of my SI's Overload ability is now completely impossible to decipher. Wonderful. Really. Because whom uses abilities in this game, eh?

No offense, but this was a silly change. I just don't understand the thought process. The hotbar works great like that, in every game. If you ability is on cooldown, it's greyed out. The hotbar with abilities works well like that, there is reason for the ability being greyed out when not usable.

It makes no sense to have the ability lit up like you can use, then have a tiny, transparent line running down it. I find myself just mashing the button now. Odd change to say the least. Would be wise to change it back.

My 3min cooldown abilities look complete when they still have <20 secs left of cooldown.
There's virtually no discernable difference in the icon from that time and lower.

Worse on long CD abilities mostly, of course; because that is how it works.

The thread has been answered. Hopefully, we see the change in the upcoming patch!

Fixed a bug that could cause the Global Cooldown to appear as if it has been cancelled when it is actually still in effect, resulting in a feeling of unresponsiveness to input.

Corrected an issue that could cause an ability icon to appear usable but be unresponsive to clicks or keypresses for several seconds.
isn't this it? I hope so.. sounds like it.
