Anyone who "got used" to this is a bad player. No one can tell if a CD is up or not on a >1 minute cooldown ability if there's less than 5 seconds left on it.

And anyone who claims to is simply a liar.

As many have stated already, just gray out abillities that can't be used, for ANY reason.

The new display method is horrid please change it back. It's not obvious when abilities are off cooldown.

I am not having as many issues with this as some people are, but I do admit it should be changed back. This was unnecessary, imo.

Good for you. Now go play the game as you claim you prefer to posting useless posts.

Seriously, this forum, as a whole, is full of the most self-entitled, whiny, uncompromising people I have ever seen.

"The game came out a month ago. It isn't perfect. Unsubbing, see ya!" "BW sucks, they don't care about us. I got my free month of gameplay and no small title that I won't be here to receive anyway? Bull!"

Sorry, did BW not release a HUGE update a month after launch? Oh, right. Launch was a month ago. There is not a single MMO that has ever been released at this size, and there is not a single MMO that has ever had a flawless release.

Everyone can stop whining like little kids about every last thing. I'm seeing every one of these problems myself, but you know what? I play through. Because I'd rather play a game with a few minor issues than sit and ***** and moan about it all day. If you don't like the game, leave and stop talking about how you plan to.

And here's an idea: Make ONE thread about a topic, highlight the issue, and wait for it to get fixed. You know, instead of jump on the attack?

Or, you know what else would be great? Submit a customer service ticket.

I have heard so many times "I'm not submitting a ticket, that should have been done in the beta test."

Who the hell is going to sit here and yell about something, but do absolutely nothing to fix it because it "isn't his job?"

I am not planning on unsubbing from the game, but maybe I'll just stop lurking the forums. This seems to be where all of the problems really are. It's a sad sight when people without this ridiculous view of the way things work are the minority.
i never read forums in other games but it was like i had to for this one just to see if anyone else had a certain prob or it was just me.

Comments like this from what ive seen so far are from people who arent "real players". they have the game and piddle around with it but they arent really playing it. The people who are into it and really play it and want to enjoy all of it, and want to play their best at it find this glaring flaws. Then post about it then someone who isnt a real player calls they crybabies. You know because they want to enjoy the game they paid ( and are still paying) for.

There was also a few posts about some imaginary ability delay issue. So either there is no such thing or you should just get used to it.
