    I’m playing on iPad and find it an improvement there.

    What made them think this was a good thing to do? Remove vital functionality for organization.

    I know! We'll add more squads and then make it so people can't organize their presets! -- Someone at CG presumably.

    It’s on the ‘known issues’. It should be fixed later on.

    Yup, not a fan of losing the squad reordering functionality. I used that extensively.

    Great, because I was actually **** off that its gone. I, quite literally, use it daily to adjust squads.

    Great!

    Now if only they could put the row layout on a crash diet. The rows are so pudgy that I can't even see three full rows at the same time. That makes both browsing and rearranging squads more onerous.
  • While I like the new aesthetic, the scaling of certain things on iPad is wonky. Does anyone at CG play/test on iPads? The mods and skills windows are shrunken. As are the opponents in arena.

    Gotta get something positive going in here...all you negative Nellies are killing it.

    I love the new update...looks clean, feels fresh, good functionality.

    I wish we had ship squads and the ability to filter more than one tag (like Jedi AND Rebel, instead of one OR the other)

    Overall 8.5/10

    Thanks CG!
    Cheers,
  • Way too much scrolling required in the squad selector menus. Only being able to see two rows at a time is horrible QoL.

    You guys forgot to including one of the tabs we have been requesting since late 2016 when you did the updated UI.....

    Please bring back the old squad manager. Now, with new squad mgmt (6/15/21 update), i can barely see the green plus symbols for gear. The left column tabs are way too big and take up too much space. Character icons are way too small, i can barely read character names, shard progression, and gear needed. Thanks for ruining our eyes. Hitting a raid with squads is more confusing now, before the update, it was clear which squads i had already used because they were redded out...selecting squads for raids is more painful now.
    Squad leader and faction icons are helpful though.
    Please revert back to the better management screen. Still trying to understand why you thought this new design was a priority...it did not need a rework. Maybe try reducing your rediculous prices in the store or actually giving enough items for what you are charging. You could also stop being so stingy with rewards.

    I appreciate the development effort but the new UI is IMO far less usable than the previous one. We see fewer characters on the screen at one time. There are vastly fewer squads on the screen as well both of which make scrolling through large rosters an even bigger annoyance especially now that we need more squads per division. Not marking previously used characters in GAC and TW needs a fix ASAP.

    Making this change while ignoring user requests such as ship squads, roster mod templates, a filter for characters with missing mods, mod level filtering, an actual Gear UI, etc and frankly reducing the amount of characters and squads on the screen at once is a poor UI decision.

    Unfortunately very little about this reskin will improve the usability of the game.

    Moving the UI portion horizontally to create more room vertically makes a lot of sense. Consuming all the vertical space freed up to show fewer characters and squads makes no sense. Someone had a good idea that got destroyed in implementation.

    Yay, I can name all my squads now! How very... useful? :p

    I love that you're always ready to roll for HAAT and a droid is in your Hairy Heroes squad. I bet that last gets underestimated juuuust enough each time.
  • Please increase the text / font size for the character screen.

    Can't read anything without my eyes bleeding after the update - considering the average age of long term swgoh gamers, readability should be topmost priority for any UX change.
  • Except for the charcters in relic (blue/red) for the others is not possible to distinguish which ones are light side or dark side. It is a mess in arena.
  • I think the new graphics look very cartoonish, like the way a kids game would look. I definately dont like it. And as others said, why the F did they need to do this, such a waste of resources when theres plenty of other things that a) still need fixing and b) weve been requesting for year.
    Definately.not impressed by this new graphics

    Thanks for the sound fix, I can listen to podcasts playing the game again.

    It's OK, I guess. Adds some neat functionalities, but the new layout will take some getting used to. Definitely not the most pressing QOL issue to throw resources at, though.

    The new interface is great for the squad(but too little, especially on phones), ect. But where is the ship squad? I tought it was implemented in this update, but nop. Plus it could be very nice to have a mods inventory and upgrade like hotutils implemented in the game or in a windows interface. And plus is a very great addiction to increment the mods storage, it’s very frustating to continuosly selling them because of the lack of space
  • The character screen is where a lot of people spend much of their time in-game. However, I actually had to close the game because my eyes started hurting. Please can you at least put out a poll in-game or on the forums so the players can choose the best roster style?

    You see less information. How is that an upgrade?
  • Issue / Bug : it seems that you cannot see which squads have already been deployed from the squads selection tab in GAC.

    Before, they had a red fading behind each used toon, so I knew it was unavailable.

    It's probably just an oversight, and would be great to reintroduce.

    Thanks

    I can now add inactive characters to squads, this is amazing!
    I'm a fan of the new interface, I always open a character to check gear anyway (its always a MKV stun gun).
    I like the recommended squads, not so useful for long term players but great for newer players.
