Personally I don't like the new dashboard. Way too cluttered and way too confusing.

PK I agree - and games you are playing don't show up unless there is unread messages or it's your turn

I'm giving it the benefit of the doubt, because it does solve one problem: it makes the fact we have forums (and a blog) more noticeable to newcomers. I can't complain about that.

Dr. Duck,
The games you are playing show up by default at the top of the page. The option to only show games where it is your turn only is selectable if you are playing more then 5 games at some point.

The placement of stuff on the dashboard can definitely be improved; would be nice to be able to see things at a glance without scrolling. But ohmygosh! A completed games menu, finally!!

Been waiting on some of these features for awhile. Definitely makes it easier to scroll through games I need to take a turn on.

Too cluttered, utterly uncustomizable, I don't want to see forum posts, that's what the forum page is for, I don't want to see games I don't want to see, hence the filters in "My games" I don't nee to see the games im in settings, I've already agreed to them haven't I? I don't need the clutter, confusion. Every day you make this game more and more like the browser based games that we all came here to escape their clutter and confusion.

Very confusing, especially for sorting through games you are active in. (Why prioritize games with recent comments, which you stopped being involved in long ago?).

However I am willing to go on the record as saying this is a WONDERFUL reconfiguration if it may lead to ~1,000 coins being deposited in my account. Thank you.

I like the new past games tab and the map of the week addition. The new dashboard could use some de-cluttering, though. I like how the "my games" tab had a little window you could scroll through the games with instead of scrolling down the page.

First of all i thought 'what a mess'.

After this and paying some attention i saw mostly really good things.
I like it scrolling on html (much faster), clicking links on it (open new games in several tabs) and seeing directly settings by symbols (no more look in the settings for useless autodistribution and such things).

But there a two little problems for me:
- With a resolution of 1024x768 the link 'CreateGame' can't be clicked anymore because it's behind the little 'account-overview' (don't know the real name).
- And this overview now looks a bit strange and different than before

But the 'Next-Game-Button' is brilliant ^^

The upside of this is that its now more efficient, and more people know about the forums.

I have to say though, its quite ugly, the dots were nicer than the dash, and those mini symbols make things look more messy and complicated than it is.

Also, it means that every time you open a game you have to go through the Warlight Loading Bar AND the game loading process, instead of just loading bar once. I really dislike this.

The old 'open page' also consists of Auto-boot info, however its gone now.

Btw, did anyone notice the eye is next to the triangle?

ILLUMINATI!!!!!!! ;)

sh4d0w,
Your comment
Why prioritize games with recent comments, which you stopped being involved in long ago?

We can tweak the settings to not show games you are no longer involved in. Thanks for the feedback.

Metaltubbie,
With a resolution of 1024x768 the link 'CreateGame' can't be clicked anymore

We will move 'Create Game' up a few sub-tabs. Our Goal is to get 1024 resolutions working. Thanks for the feedback.

I like being able to scroll through open games and see all the settings at a glance (or with some mouse-overing) That part is great.

i went to the page open game, but i can't tell the time... could fizzer or mercer (if not an alt) fix that?

Also, is there option to hide promotion games aka coin games and show all the open games so we don't need to click on "see more open games"?

P.S. i am ambivalent about dashboard.... if the forum is good then leave it.. but if it is about clan drama then take it away(unless fizzer can filter them) :)

The dashboard is overwhelming. There is a lot of problems in it. First is the loss of the "Actives games where I am still playing" option for games (so it would only show games you were still in). The writing on the games is too big and the colour is too much

Also, the setting for filtering your game "Active games where you are not eliminated" has been taken out. That was the only one I used for a reason and I would like if it was added back in. Just realized the guy above me said that, but my comment still stands.

Also, the my games page looks infinitely better than the new dashboard and I wouldn't mind if that stayed in as well.

{DARK} That Guy,
What about the 'My Games' page is better? Can you be more descriptive. The more detail and feedback we get the better the dashboard will become. The 'My Games' page is going away so feedback on improving the dashboard is helpful.


Thomas 633,
We will look into Font Sizes.

How nice to have self-entitled prats demanding things now. You gave no explanation as to why you didn't like it. I guess we should expect more of this to come as the forums grow in numbers

I guess some of us are more used to the older, light weight, less clutterred version of Warlight. Personally, I felt the new changes are a bit heavy @ first sight.

Way back warlight was likable because it was easy, smooth on the eyes, nothing flashin around the screen, this was before levels were introduced, not even ads for non members.
But now the website seems to be getting heavier on the content.

I wish members had the option of switching to version they are more suitable withliek - warlight 1.0 or 2.0, the newer versions are simlpy annoying. How difficult is it to use filters on the My Games tab? if that was too incovinient then why at all play?

But thanks for keeping the game play the same:) I really love the game play and wouldn't want to change much about it.

It would be nice if it became clearer at a glance who has not yet submitted orders (the big black box in the middle of the coloured box worked great).
It would be nice to be allowed to disable both the icons and the "X days"/"X minutes" written on the maps.
It would be nice to be allowed to remove forums from the page.
It would be nice to be allowed to remove tournament invites from the page.
It would be nice to be allowed to remove open games from the page.
It would be nice if the "my games" section took up the entire screen instead of just a small part of it, because the small size makes it cluttered and hard to look at.
It would also be nice if the ordering and filtering from the old "my games" could be used on the new dashboard (currently it doesn't work like that).

Obviously the top request would be to be allowed to remove promoted games, but I don't think it helps any to ask for that, as I assume forcing us to look at promoted games is the whole reason for WL 3.3 :)

A suggested implementation could be giving the dashboard a link to a simple HTML settings page with checkboxes - or you can put it as a new subsection of the settings tab.

That specific enough?

Personally I think it's just a matter "got used to" some things.

I like icons instead of description. You just need to memorize some of them to be able to pick game with settings you like.
But if "my games" and "open games" tab are to be removed, I think you should have option to collapse/expand sections you don't use atm (like "+", "-" icon next to it).
also old filters, like many before me noised should be restored.

EDIT:

something like this:
