While I appreciate the efforts of Fizzer to sort of "pimp" the lay-out of his game I don't really like the extra steps I now have to take in order to see vital things such as history (I play multiple games, 50 multidays at once, so I can't be expected to remember all my starting picks and/or wastelands) or to play cards.
The pop-up menu button might be to the liking of some, but it just makes easy access to buttons harder.

Now I would like to know what other people find of this new lay-out ?
If a lot of people have similar problems can't there be an option to choose the old "standard" lay-out in settings ?

Maybe I posted prematurely and I'm just grumbling about change, but better too early then too late.

Learn the hotkeys then. I think left arrow is history.

I think Fizzer has done a great job with the new design, and especially the addition of a much needed "Analyze Attack" tab. However having an option to keep this toolbar in place (Pin it) would be great.

In the update as a whole, I am looking forward to having my 'booted' teammates, take control back from AI's, on the 'Soft Boot', many games have ended uncompleted by teammates loosing connection and coming back only seconds after they were booted, this addition will surely be welcomed by everyone. :)

The soft boot thing is great.

But a option to pin the bar when sorting out long games or real time games would be great, instead of having to reopen on refresh.

The home key also sends you to the first turn of history (the distribution phase with manual distribution).

Fizzer won't revert changes so start getting used to it.

Sorry for soiling your thread with my name.

Home key = Fn + Left Arrow for Mac users :)

The new option to retake control of AI is excellent. Thanks Fizzer

Yes, to retake control of the AI is something I immediately noticed that WL lacked (and pogo.com's Risk game has). This change should deflate a lot of the problems and disputes that arise in FFAs and team games.

The interface is a mess though. People check history or click refresh almost every turn. Surrender was hidden beneath Players before, now it is still two clicks away. How is going from 2 clicks to 2 clicks an improvement? History, Players, Analyze, Refresh should definitely be 1 click away. If there is space, everything else could be too.

But I'd say the most annoying thing that has yet to be changed is when we make games. The default settings should enable transfer only, attack only, no cards (that +10 reinforcement is idiotic: who would choose to have such a card setting?), surrenders happen immediately. Default settings should be 'base' settings that most people prefer.

i was playing a game and was using the new menu to get to my cards. i must have moved the mouse oddly but the menu collapsed and i ended up clicking on surrender instead. i was luckily able to take over the ai but i lost the turn and it is hopeless now. i like the other changes though the take over ai is great

haven't tried the surrender since the update but i would expect a confirmation popup for such deadly misclicks.

After accidentally clicking surrender instead of cards, he slipped on a banana peel and fell face-first onto the left button of his mouse, which confirmed his surrender.
