Saying that the need better communication is half-way right - they need to actually listen to the playerbase.
Better communicating that you're going to give players a s### sandwich does not improve the flavour of the sandwich.
And before they spent months working on the UI (really? So much effort for such a lame result, with many player-provided mockups that would be far better) if they had asked the players and listened to the response they could have saved all that effort.
They are actual people but this is their actual job. Being less aggressive about hating the changes to spare ~feelings~ would get nothing done.
Seriously!! They get paid to do this stuff.
I mean, it's almost fine anyways WHY would they do that? I don't blame any of them on that front.
The UI is almost okay it just has some very large problems that happen to be very easily fixed, such as moving the positions of things or at least giving the option to; and a few visibility tweaks. That's it.
No need to go back to the old UI anyways.
You're absolutely right, no need to revert it. Just give us some way to customize it. Boom.. Win-win situation
Nice strawman OP.
I don't think anyone ever said the devs weren't people.
Lol it was this way long before a pandemic lol
Were you actually laughing out loud through that whole sentence? You seem fun.
The fact that we even need proof that the devs are human is sad.
All of us are pretty sure it's humans making the game, not monkeys, aliens or devils from hell.
Well yes, ignoring a whole month of negative feedback is not a simple mistake.
Yes the Devs are human. But where's your proof the QA team exists?
Y'know, so many people are saying 'the layout is the problem'. Are they really telling us they cannot change the LAYOUT of the UI? Really?
