The Legacy Window Does not Need to be Squared Off

What is the point of this change? All you guys did was square it off. It looks boring and bland now. No one asked for this change and it doesn't add clarity to the Legacy window. We can have a discussion on how we can improve the clarity of the Legacy window, but this is not how.

Leave the Legacy window as it is in Live. Do not change the Legacy window to what it is on the PTS.

I suspect this change is to make the legacy window easier to use for accessibility software. Non-standard UI features are always a problem for those tools. Of course, I could be wrong. It would be nice if Bioware explained the change.

Only reason this was done is so some clueless administrator gets credit on his/her resume to say they did something on SWTOR. Waste of time. Not needed. Poor delegation of resources. Doesn't help or hurt anything. So many other things need addressed and this is just a padding of someone's resume. Sad.

I don't really know if BioWare intends to actually modify the Legacy Window or not but I agree that the Legacy Window as we saw it on the PTS the last few weeks is not a desirable alternative to the current window.

It looks grossly bleaker than the current one.

If BioWare wants to make changes to the Legacy Window, consider:
  • a 'Collapse All Tabs' option so individual listings don't have to be shrunk;
  • an overall Achievements percentage displaying the percentage of total achievements completed;
  • the ability to reorder Achievements categories alphabetically or by percentage complete;
  • once players reduce or arrange their Legacy Window, don't expand all the subcategories again after leaving the instance or game

I'll echo the sentiment.

All the squaring off just makes these elements look cheap and boring. It loses the polish the older stuff had for no benefit.

Well, they went through with it anyway. It doesn't fit in with the design aesthetic of the UI. It feels half-assed, like they couldn't be bothered to make it fit in. None of the other windows are completely straight-edged. They have angles that break those lines.
