Not to be too insulting...but did whoever program the dashboard and history viewer work for Microsoft before?? It's like whoever programmed this stuff never tested it!

1. When you go into games and come back out to the dashboard, then into the next game the volume control resets to 100%

2. The history viewer is totally screwed up now

3. The dashboard has a poor layout. Before you could go to your "my games" to see which games you were in and to the "open games" to easily choose what you wanted to play. It was very easy. Now to do things without the volume screwing up you have to keep multiple browsers open.

I'm all for changes, but please test them first!

1. My volume is always set off, mainly as I usually have Netflix on at the same time, or I'm at work. Not really a fan of that music/sfx anyway.


3. But they're both on the same page, why do you need multiple tabs, usually I'm only do that if I have many games open at the same time.

Wolverine:

1. I have the music off, but I like the sounds so I know when a game has started.

3. Mostly because of the volume issue. Also, I have no need for the "promoted" games and it's above the open games on the dashboard. If I could move or remove the promoted games it might be a little better for the way I use it.

That's cool, I never thought to use them as prompts. Good idea.

I have the same issue with promoted games, though, I've only played 1 coin tournement ad maybe 2 or 3 individual coin games since since I started playing properly a few months ago.

There is a way to remove the promoted games, just find the correct thread and it tells you how.

"There is a way to remove the promoted games, just find the correct thread and it tells you how."

That's another problem with the dashboard. that it is not intuitive to figure out how to remove the "promoted games." rather one has to go searching for threads on how to do it. I agree with beleaf, this update, and the loss of "my games" and "open games" makes gameplay more cumbersome and less smooth.

1. Volume stays the same as I put it.
2. History viewer has pros and cons, should be a choice over window or that.
3. Yes, I agree that this is humongous mistake, but there are userscripts that mostly solve the problem.

1. Volume always stays the same; it never resets to max.
2. In my opinion, the history has a better, more workable layout: it's never in the way of the map.
3. Tidy it up a little with https://www.warlight.net/Forum/83888-userscript-tidy-up-dashboard-. Alternately, get used to it.

Your ignorance is showing. Please cover it up before leaving the house in the future lest we charge you with indecent exposure.

Seriously, I imagine you thought that was a witty comment, but it wasn't. Just ignorant. You have no understanding of how difficult it is to test something thoroughly before releasing it. Massive amounts of internal testing will be eclipsed within moments of it being released to the public due to the large difference in # of users between the two phases.
