Great changes, counter is a huge bonus too, TY Bioware.

Now I hope the naysayers will finally shut the hell up about BioWare not listening to the community.

Seriously, it's freakin' annoying and stupid, it's like these people get off on being jerks.

If you watch the video it looks like there's a timer on the icon for cooldowns now. Timers for GCD would just be too much. The way they went looks spot on. Awesome job Bioware! Just made my game experience a lot better

Would also like some more hotbars added to the center bottom, *wink wink* *nudge nudge*.

Excellent changes to the GCD stuff. I can't wait for the other UI changes coming in 1.2. Can't wait for scaling!

Very pleased with these changes. Giving the player options is always the best way.

And the counter is great.

Please waste more time working the UI when the add-on community would do the work for you faster and for free...

Looks great, ship it now!

I'd like the cooldown text to be less chunky (I liked OmniCC, it used a thinner font) and it's important to format to the right precision (e.g. "5m" rather than "300s," 1/10s precision at < 5s) - it seems like this UI does that. I would also prefer making the standard text white and the < 5s text yellow (red doesn't contrast very well and those last seconds are the most critical).

The GCD flash seems like it would be helpful.
