Title update 6/15 [MERGE]

    It's common that many people will dislike any change in aesthetics at the start, until most of them will just get used to it. So give it some time.

    On the other side, having less toons on the screen at the same time it's annoying. Yeah, you can use the filters to look for the characters you want instead of scrolling, but other things, like if you want to take a **** on a certain faction or group of units, it's just less practical.

    Annoyingly, the one thing that needs an update most is the terrible faction filter... and it was left entirely untouched.

    It states exactly what you said there was no word on, so it has some meaning.

    No, because THIS is the comunication channel, or at least CG claim there is.

    I am told the hot fix will go out today to fix the ones listed in the tracker as ready. They should have a post outlining any details there.

    I hope this makes you happy, my friend :)

    Do you have friends? :o

    And they told you to look at the tracker, which is an official source too.

  • I personally love the changes, main thing is naming the squads and being able to transfer them between groups. The buffs being applied icon is cool too.

    Can see why some find it aesthetically different so hence bad, but overall the functionality is in my view a step up.

    Kyno honestly what does the dev tracker do for us? It shows bugs “ready for release” to be fixed weeks or months at a time with zero resolution.

    Would it kill the community managers to communicate with us here? How about updates on make goods or resolutions to the bugs their Unwanted UI update caused to LSGeoTB SM, conquest, GAC, etc?

    How about a comment regarding the lack of QoL updates promised? If this was their ship load of content/ big QoL update then someone deserves to be fired. This hasn’t done anything to improve the game for its players. This is quite the opposite. Any “updates” this aesthetic upgrade has brought has easily been trumped by the bugs and issues it’s caused.

    Accountability anyone?????

    Can't seem to find the thread about Entrenched not WAI anymore so I'll post here. Is anyone else still seeing some issues? I have 3 blue Entrenched disks equipped but am only getting 1 stack of Bonus Protection, and it doesn't appear to be the 75% that it should.7v2mo1xa4un6.png

    It is a way for AHQ to directly communicate what is going on, on their end.

    I'm sure they will make a post if/when they have something to post about.

    Hello CG

    I am sorry to say, but you have blundered greatly with your UI changes to the squad screen. You have taken a very nice simple interface and made it simply unusable. I can see the vision you were trying to achieve, but you failed spectacularly and released something that actually regressed the functionality. For crying out loud, please test your code!
    As for the changes..
    1. There is no way to remove the Recommended tab. Ok, it may be useful for new players, but players at the top of progression simply don't care. We know what works. Let us get rid of the tab.
    2. Why are we bothering showing stars on relic units? Are you planning on letting us relic under-starred units? Please declutter an already cluttered screen.
    3. Squad names? Whatever for? So I can specify a squad as SLKR counter? I already know what it does. Get rid of it. It's useless. And listening it as "Default", really? That's just annoying and even more clutter. Yeah, you use it in your Recommended tab to help the new players. That just saddles all the rest of us with more useless crap.
    4. Size. Can we talk about the size of each entry? It's huge. My galaxy S10 went from 4-5 squads per screen to 2. That means more useless scrolling. When time is short (think CPit raid), I don't want to scroll 3 screens worth of data.
    5. Marking used units. Yes, you have acknowledged the issue. Thank you. However, the fact that this highly visible bug (and a few others I won't mention) got passed your QA is extremely concerning and diminishes an already lackluster community confidence in your ability to release anything.
    6. Lack of Fleet squadrons, still. This is one of those things that really triggers me. It is a huge gaping hole in the entire squad management system and you just did all this work and it's still not there. My only hope is that you needed this layout change to add the fleet squadron functionality, but my hope is fleeting these days.

    The only bright spot in the whole thing is the ability to move/copy squads between tabs. Wondefull idea.

    Looking forward to seeing all the flames now.
  • The new squad and character interface is an abomination. Not sure what they were thinking when changing this. It was perfect the way it was.
  • I like the squad names and the ability to make squads for toons you don't have yet. I agree with the rest of the criticism though.

    Yea I posted about this in the Conquest thread here too. It seems that it has been changed so it’s unique for the different levels of the buff. If you have a blue and a green you will see 2 stacks. If you have 2 blues, it’s only 1. Bottom line, it does not work the way it did before.

    Does that mean that 1 green + 1 blue is better than 2 blues now?

    While the mod toggle in the squad screen is, indeed, new, it's not really that practical. At least for me. When I remod for a special event or battle in TB, I generally pull mods from different characters/squads across my entire roster. So checking to make sure I've put mods back on before entering GAC or TW usually involves a quick scroll of the top end of my roster - not squads. Arena squads might be the only exception - but that's a rare case. Again, at least for me. Maybe others will find it useful - and, like you sir, I am very happy for them.

  • make it that the units that are put in `suggested squads` will also be connected to how strong they are, and if they go together. 5zjavncn4cw5.png why to suggest those units for emperor's demise when I have my phoenix built up: d3by598ndibn.png also there is the same problem in grands master's training and daring droid. instead of putting the best squad put the squad that will be cheapest to get from the place I am in now. and that means to do 2 stuff:
    1. check for the highest qualifying leader
    2. check for the highest units qualifying for that leader
    3. do step 1, just for all other leaders, then do step 2 for them.
    4. check what squad has the most amount of power and suggest that.

    another suggestion: Long Range Event Planner
    the LREP plans what will be ultimately the cheapest path to do the events, for example:
    for Emperor's Demise - phoenix (as they are rebel and you need them also for art of war)
    for Grandmaser's Training - leader: Jedi Knight Revan (that will be unlocked), Kenan, Ezra (phoenix), Bastila Shan and Jolee Bindu (that unlock JK Revan)

    Either allow us to eliminate "Recommended" as a tab or at least give us the ability to move it down the list.

    Every time ANY software brings out a new version with changes, some people hate it. I'm old enough to remember the uproar about Windows 95 coming after Windows 3.1. So many people said it was terrible. Can you imagine going back to Windows 3.1 now?
    Not to mention Windows 10's changes. You seen the leaked info on Windows 11 yet?

    It's change. And some people don't like change. I get it.
    But saying they've "blundered greatly" and need to "test their code" just because you don't like the cosmetic changes is a bit much.

    Give it a couple of months, I bet most of the people who are upset now won't see any issue at all.

    Actually the squad names are very useful, you can now have separate gear farms, relic farms and shard farms, instead of having just all of them favorite and having to remember which is a shard farm, and which is a gear farm. A small change, but it's really useful. And as for the 2nd complaint, i think it's for consistency sake. the recommended tab can help you know what journey guide units you are close to, so it's not bad, is it? For the size, i can see where are you coming from though. I agree for fleet squads, it would be nice to see it. And personally i love the new UI, but that's just my opinion

    Pretty much, until they come back and tell us if 1) it’s still not working properly, or 2) it’s now WAI and they can tell us it doesn’t stack anymore.

    They just need to pick an answer and tell us one way or the other.

    I agree with this. We need some clarification before the next Conquest on how these discs are supposed to work (both functionally and visually) so we can report bugs if it's not WAI.

    Except that this "update" takes away existing functionality and makes some other information very hard to see. I do not care one way or other about the looks or similar parts.

    An on the changes in windows: No I would not like to go back to windows 3.1, but I would definitely prefer NT 3.51 or perhaps even as modern as windows 2000, if modern programs just supported them over the current abomination that is windows 10.
