Did I miss the memo about the site's platform being changed?
And when did that happen? 0.0


Oh btw navigating in here is a click-a-much process.

If, per say, one wants to go to talent calculator from the forum, s/he has to go to Game News, then to Guides and then to TC...

It was faster before with the tab menues dropdowns. Just saying.


Also, FYI, you have 2 talent calculators in the guide section... either make the 'class' section redirect to proper class page, or remove the duplicated TC.


1 more thing: half of the emoticons are now broken. T;Applauding




P.S:
At least provide a link to the old board.

    The stark white font vs dark grey/black background is annoying on the eyes.

    Some designer doesn't seem to be aware of user-friendly menus and colours ;-;

    Agreed >: I feel like my eyes are going to explode. It's a good way to turn people away from the forums, if that is their goal...

    Well dunno about them getting close to the Arc layout and stuff,

    However their skin sheet is half-arsed done.


    And can we have quick navigation back pls??? Ya know the drop down menu box with the different forum sections...


    But srsly, please take about 30 mins to 1 hr and fix this thing up a bit.
    Yes, it takes just about that much time to make it all work.

    ok so it seems arc is gonna be mandatory at this rate....also PWE ty for being so stupid making it more difficult to navigate the site. since a few times the tiny tab in the left hand corner to navigate sometimes loves to be other colors that dont work with war of shadows pic in the back...wait we in dysil's wrath if your gonna update your site do it completely -_- and learn your color schemes better. though i admit its better then a black background with dark blue color font....

    I do agree with what most said here already, the contrast between the text and background is too strong. Either lighten up the background or darken the text. It would also be nice to add some subtle color variety to it so its easier to tell apart the post from all the extra info (user, date, etc...) Buttons need to go with the color scheme as well XD

    Also, some parts of the forum (reply to thread part) still have the old color scheme :/

    wonder if the one who chose this new color scheme was blind or something?
    i mean really are you trying to alienate players from the forums now?
    You already had people from PW rage about this yet you chose to use same for this game too?
    Change it!!

    I usually like this kind of format, although I can see the point about greying the text. It's a nitpick that's at least pointing out. Besides, white text is better for your eyes than a white background (i.e. Google, YouTube, Yahoo and nearly every other mainstream website the seems determined to blind people). Still, point well taken on wanting grey text. Light grey, of course.
    ok so it seems arc is gonna be mandatory at this rate....

    It was made offcial that it's going to be mandatory several months ago. They did say they were going to put everything under arcgames.com. There is no "seems" about it.

    As for the lack of menu, the whole transition is a work in progress, so they do need to hear that we want the menu back. I prefer a cleaner menu that isn't cluttered with unneeded things. Not sure if the lack of a menu is by design for simpler work between the website and the in-game Arc menu or if it's an oversight. Overall, I do like the change.

    Edit: Of course, a longer way of a workaround is to grey the text yourself. :)

    Anyone can point to where the old link for Zen is gone?

    I can see on arc website the balance of zen in my account, but no way to transfer it to game o.O

    Perhaps an oversight on redesigning the forums.

    EDIT: Ok, found it on the main website. If anyone needs it: https://billing.perfectworld.com/mywallet

    Exactly. Already stated once Arc is complete, all game patches will be available only via ARC. At this rate I would expect all this to be ready by the 90 lvl cap patch. So if u aren't going to be playing using ARC, enjoy the game until then. After that u probably wont be able to update ur client unless u install ARC.

    We'll see how long that link lasts before they change addresses.

    They changed the forums and made it horrible on the eyes so that people don't come here anymore. You people are so gullible, gad! They don't wanna deal with people asking and saying all the right things, poking them where it bugs them... They make the forums fugly to chase us away, doh!... xD

    has anyone tried clicking a link that takes u to a saved tree in the talent calculator? LOL it won't work.
    upon clicking the link, u get the "ERMAGERD GOING TO ARC WEBSITE" pop up, and have >10 seconds to decide to click "go to arc" OR the pwe home page OR u can sit and let it redirect u automatically...

    this isn't, obviously, what i wanted. i clicked a link to check out a tree in the TC because i'm curious as to a build for XYZ - i did NOT want to go to the damned arc page.
    (which, btw, is laid out horribly - "user friendly" is clearly not in the designer's dictionary)
