Don't think we had a discussion here. And yes, it's not so new, afaik been like that for 2-3 weeks.

Personally, I don't like it. News are sorted in a weird way, you have to make several additional clicks to get somewhere else, and it's not rocket science that people don't like that.

It's not friendly to new people, either. Erm, and where is the events calendar?

You should see what they've done to the WoWS forum.  Dreadful.

More sleekness at the expense of functionality, and change for the sake of change alone?

 

It's how things work today, unfortunately.

Tiles is now the preferred option widely. WG is really following the lead set by Microsoft. Microsoft first created the style for Xbox, then ported it into Windows 8 and 10 (9 was missed as 8 was seen as a disaster for them). The tiles thing also is said to work better on tablets and mobile devices.

 

Thus the PC master race is forced to consume tiles because it works for other devices.

 

Of course WG could have added a button for old/PC view or new/Tile view, but that might have required some coding.

Personally I hate tiles, especially on ordinary PC. Then again I am "old school" and run the Win 98 GUI on my Win 7 computer...

 

I do see the arguement for touch screen stuff though, for normal content consumption, but it isn't much flexible the way I see it. It's probably going to get worse as I grow older :sceptic:

I don't browse that part of town (I just check out the Announcement section and go from there if I see something interesting) so I can't comment on its looks, but I'm not feeling the content. For example we had this bit about the new MM the other day: 

 

Block Quote

Reading the hundreds of pages of discussion and feedback on the improved matchmaker convinced us that the template-based algorithm does its job of balancing the speed of matching versus the quality of matches

 

Making CNN look good on the topic of fake news.

It's awful, diabolical even on a PC, but do WG realise that on my iPad the only section that scrolls left to right is where you find the Premium Shop! So the Premium Shop on an iPad is the only part of this disorganised mess that can't be seen at first sight, a genius move for any business, make the sales portal invisible.

 

That aside it's one thing employing people to make things better, but don't employ them to just change stuff for the sake of it, the old site was clear, hierarchical, and with a timeline, not so the new site.

New Ships forum is better on a mobile as it stops you going blind as quickly... It's appalling on a desktop PC however yes :angry:

How come the WG community is so conservative?

 

It seems that anything new is bad news.

Why miss something they never used?

 

Sure it looks nicer, but it's indeed way less user friendly vs before.

Its bad. Only new MM surpasses it being horrible and proves that devs weren't so drunk.
