Yes i know there is another post about 5 down on this very page but i want to post another one as it's deserved as it is horrendous and they don't seem to care. More posts about this and the mods may raise their hands and tell someone. And yes i raised a ticket shortly after the changes and was told "i would get used to it"

 

I saw the new missions pop up "i want it all" and then spent about 5 minutes trying to figure out WTF i had to do and with what in what format. Jesus those UI designers need shooting and your old ones rehiring.

Agreed. I just don't look at the missions anymore and randomly receive some reward. The interface, compared to old one, looks like someone was paid to specifically make it less readable.

I rarely care about missions but at the rare occasions that I do I found the old UI to present me with the information I needed fast and without much fuss, sure it wasn't pretty or perfect in any way, but it did the job. The new UI makes me think of one word, unintuitive, I opened it once or twice, clicked around and decided to care even less about missions then I did before. 

 

​Felt obliged to post that again.

It sucks, but it looks rather fresh and modern! Fits with the times of limiting usability while making it look nice. :)

Yes. The previous interface was very good, but evidently, someone was bored and wanted to make a new one, so now we have those indistinguishable boxes.

I would rather have the old boring style that had all the info in you needed in less then a second vs the "good looking" mess they have now.

 

Missions are now shown 1 out 3 ways. 1: Has all the info, even all tiers etc on the mission tab, as it's usually not much, or for all tanks. 2: Has half the info, but you gotta open a new window again that shows you exactly the same info in a bigger window, but only if your selected tank works for it. So you gotta open a new window again to get the list of tanks that can do it, and figure out the max tier etc. And hovering over each icon don't even tell you what you have to do. So you gotta experiment at times to. 3: Like today where I had no freaking idea what the new missions was for. As it's as vague as can be. As it don't say right up what game mode it's for. As it took me a few to notice the microscopic "global map" icon they had on it.  If these were in a section called "global map" I would have known right away.

 

At least the old mission UI had room for the full tank list, nations, tiers, basic mission requirements, a big game mode icon and dates. All in one window. Not 3. I get they wanted a new style. And it's nice. But they really gotta sort out how they display their info. I mean adding more by a simple tool tip window when hovering over it, like game mode,tier limit, nations etc would fix half the issues in an instant.

I'm the same.  No idea what is going on any more so just play and occasionally receive some reward...

Couldn't agree more. My question for WG:
Is your game so polished and balanced that changing a perfectly fine UI into this mess was so high on your priority list?

And now they are changing the perfect designed and balanced maps into HD format.....

and just how many of the maps are perfect design and balance? my guess 4 or 5

 

and how many will get improved and balanced with the HD rework? my guess 0

The interface needs to be scrapped and reworked from scratch.

Glad others find it so bad because I find it so needlessly confusing I was beginning to think I'd developed dyslexia.

It's so bad that I don't even use it at all. I Check other pages and that's ridiculous.  

Make it simple and clear.

I've totally given up trying to figure out the in-game interface. I just look at the requirements on the WoT homepage and try to assess my progress using the mess they call a UI

It's bloody awful. Scrap it and go back to the old one. It was FAR better.
