Rotating timers

Why does the Premonition's cooldown timer rotate clockwise, while Quick & Quiet's one counterclockwise?

Would not it be better to give different meanings to the two directions of rotation?
For example:
1) clockwise: duration of the perk effect (Distortion, Sprint Burst...) and other "positive" perk-related events;
2) counterclockwise: perk cooldown (Premonition, Quick & Quiet...) or loading (Diversion, Stake Out...) and other "negative" perk-related events. :)

The same convention should also be applied to the Status Effects icons and to all the other rotating timers.

    i have never noticed that...

    would be a nice QoL change for sure.

    Keen eye on this one.

    @Mister_xD @JanTheMan Yes, it's a small detail, a small useful detail to improve the symbols fast readability. :)

    Good idea!
    I mean it wouldn't matter that much.
    Most perks have that acitvation, don't have cooldown (or have it in diffrent icons read exhaustion) and vice versa

    *I guess DWM has both.

    It's just a matter of having a better visual comprehension of the perks functioning, especially if you combine in the same build two perks with the same rotating timers, which nevertheless represent different effects.

    DWM stands for...? :)

    Tapps perk does the same thing but I can't remember which way it goes but when they're not all the same it's confusing.

    Indeed, this would be the kind of qol update that would make understanding the game easier.

    @Kind_Lemon Exactly, this quality of life improvement makes the game more user-friendly, helping especially new players and people who need to read their HUD in just a second, because they are in chase. :)

    @not_Queen @Patricia Provided the Community likes my simple proposal to improve the quality-of-life of the game, then I hope to see it implemented with 2.6.0 patch. :)

    Could the lucky PC players kindly tell me if the rotating timers got the QoL improvement described in the OP with the 2.6.0 PTB? :)
