That being said, still waiting for the ui customization patch that lets me resize everything.

now im not trolling and im not saying this and that. And i understand if you have a condition if it gives you migrans etc.

But before everyone shouts n shouts some people try adjusting contrast and coulours on pc and adjusting gamma in game in graphic options and u MAY jus find a fix that suits you.

Im not trolling im just trying to hep a few of you
The added over stimulation and 1 skill for everything flash effect is the issue.
1. cut immersion
2. added a strobe effect that hinders the core game mechanics.
3. destroys tank's focus on combat and reaction based abilities
4. creates headaches and added eye strain.

Respectfully, you and the dev team would not have to waste time and effort defending/investigating/producing new UI effects that the community doesn't like if the BW team would allow player made UI mod to be used.

Please strongly consider making player written mods useable the #1priority for development. Consider all the complaints that would vanish if you could simply respond with, "I'm sorry you don't like that element of the UI, but there are a number of user mods that can customize that element to your specification."

^ same issue on my juggernaut that relies on rage to light up, they don't light up.

Clearly you didn't read my post as I never said there was no issue with it. It's great for ability cooldowns. It's not great for the GCD. The GCD needs to be severely tuned down so that you can see it but not massively apparent like it is now.

Out of curiosity WHY was this not tested on the PTR and up for discussion whether to add it in this state or not? Why are we, paying customers, essentially beta testing this live and then making a 50+ page of complaints about it and awaiting for it to be reverted back to the old design? This is what the PTR is for, this isn't Facebook where ideas just get added regardless if people like it or not! :P

Either fix it, or better give us an API so we can fix it.

Funny how being "improved" twice so far, it is now the worst it's ever been. It is nearly imperceptible the difference between light up "will be available after GCD" and darkened "will not be available on GCD".

Please change this back.

For the love of god just put it back to where it was at LAUNCH before you broke everything. It worked beautifully at Launch. Stuff didn't light up unless it was off GCD and you had the resources to use it. It was extremely clear what was up and useable and what was not.

Ever since each "fix" you have released for a total non-problem has made your UI worse and now its basically epilepsy inducing failsauce.

If you were trying to convince us that your game doesn't need add-on support you are doing a terrible job by repeatedly showing us that you can't handle creating a usable or flexible UI. You just made the case for us for why you NEED addons so people can make this horrible UI actually usable by modern MMO standards.
