New Design Is Terrible

Bioware took a design that was absolutely fine, and made it clunkier.

Why would you think that making us jump through more pages and scrolling more would some how be a good idea?

My biggest gripe is with the Thread Subscriptions.. The only way that I've found now to see my subscriptions and go to the threads easily is to go through the second log in process, which since I have a security key, I have to pop my Iphone out and start up the SKey app, just to check my subscriptions. So much for a quality of life feature.


Bad design is bad. WTB option to go back to old design.

More clicks & scrolls to find forums. Unnecessary.

Nice and bright though.

I actually like it better Very clean simple.
Anything that has to do with your account and making it more secure is awesome! You should be saying thank you instead of complaining. I would rather spend the 3 sec to type in my code over calling customer service because my account got hacked?

A step in the right direction by making it simpler, but bad design is still bad design. BW/EA needs to fire their Art Department asap.

Weird. I had to type in my code anytime I wanted to access my account before. I can't tell anything has changed in that way.

Regarding the new design. It looks more uniform, I guess, but also looks worse (completely subjective). What I was really disappointed to find is that the top level forums are still the unorganized mess that they were before.

/facepalm yes Bioware roll it back take it away, I as one person out of 1.7 million do not like it..
I have to chuckle, is there no end to what people will complain about these days.../sigh
Do not dwell in the past, do not not dream of the future, concentrate the mind on the present moment.

lol..

i swear bioware can't do ANYTHING without somebody raising a fuss about it.

"bioware has just indicated they will be giving everybody who plays SWTOR $1,000 in the currency of your play area"

"WTH bioware! now i have to go to my tax person so they can figure how this will impact my refunds for next year. THANKS bioware for nothing!"
