The Zoomed out Character Selection Bug

Hey, so some people including me have gotten a bug where everytime you log out and log in the first character you see is zoomed out.

You can see half of his lower body and all upper body and a better look of the background ship.
Many people who got this agree its better than the normal look and it would just be awsome if it got implemented into the game.

Here's how it looks:

What do you guys think?

This has been present for a couple of weeks now, but I do agree it is a nice look. Most folks spend quite a bit of time customizing their character and their gear set and the bugged view does display that fairly well.

I never really liked the normal look of character selection, It just was too far zoomed in.
It's meant to make your character look shiny and all yet all you can see is your Head and top of chest.
And because its really up-close the armour appears fairly pixelated ( I play on max settings, but i imagine on lower it looks even worse )

Against all odds, I prefer fries! I'll certainly pass on that a vast majority of people seem to like the zoomed out view. No promises, but I'll make sure they know.
