Why has everything got to be changed into icons and stuff?!?! It doesnt get any easier. Especially when you have to chase vital information all over the place...doing mouse over on different icons and whatnot taking a hell of a lot longer time...and in general...not getting a good understand of how the missions are connected...

 

To not talk about all the excessive scrolling.

Somebody is being paid as a game developer and they are damned well going to develop stuff even when it doesn't need developing. The last chap was probably sacked because he played the game, so a problem with the Missions list wouldn't have been apparent to him.

Preaching to the choir, person that done the ui for personal missions and the default missions needs to go to Specsavers, only then will they see what they have done and then live in solitude in shame.

 

PS

This applies to the idiots that actually put it through.

 

But as usual they don't give a flying ****.

A simple list when you can have cool graphics and all kinds of clicking and confusion action? Nonsense.

Could be worse. They could be both unreadable and look like crap; given certain efforts by WG I wouldn't complain too much. :P

There are issues seeing details with the new set-up but this does look nicer than a list in a window. Lists in windows are sooooo 2012, darlinks.

 

Although be honest, if they'd left it as it was then people would be bitching about how the game looks so old and probably throwing in some less than complimentary comments about the state of Russian technology.

They're good making money and drawing christmas stuff, but they're the worst doing user-friendly screens in the world.

To understand missions, advent missions, christmas radio and camo you need a master.

I prefer function over esthetic.

They could always have spruced up the display of the list, or had an alternative interface...

Anyone know a modder with the tools for the job?

I'm with OP.  Trying to see the relevant missions behind a wall of tournament missions I'll never even try to complete is very annoying.

because a lot of companies think that "changes" are instantly positive

If they could at least make missions completed with honour in green colour and mission where we did only the first objective yellow for example.

Make it more user friendly guys.

They are anticipating for the moment when the majority of the playerbase is unable to read. We're getting close now I think

You did see what they said when they "fixed" the campaign screen right? Stated that "the old campaign screen was informative, but the new one looks good at the same time". So you can "fix" it if it looks better. Even tho it's less informative. I don't mind the new mission UI. I just hate the fact that it lacks consistency. Some have the info you need on the screen instantly. Others have it if you hover over it. And some don't have neither of those two, and you need to open two more windows to see what tiers it's for etc.

 

Idk why it's so complicated to have tiers, nations and mode under it. So we don't have to look via 2 more window popus to find it.

I suppose the thought was that an icon needs no translation, except that we did at least at first.

 

I do with they would alter their colour scheme though, I am typing this in black text on a white background.

Simple tried and tested very clear.

 

So why do you use several shades of grey in the game.

I noticed that the number of missions I had completed where in white text on a grey background while those remaining were in light medium grey text on a slightly darker grey background.

When you finish you get Green on Grey which is clear enough.

But please enlighten me who thought grey on grey was a good idea and why year after year does it remain unchanged.
