And an extra thing about the UI, I dont need to see the caster.... it just takes up screen room. Its about the spaceships shooting eachother not everything that is filling up the screen at the moment

And perhaps change the eye-scorching white, for a darker colour.

might would help if all the white stuff has a slight transparency with the background of the names and stuff being 100% black and font in white or so. that way you could still see whats going on behind the overlay.

I too am not finding it as aesthetically pleasing as the old format.

I am enjoying seeing the modules used though. Is there no way of combining that with the old layout?

And do we really need the camera switching between commentators every 10 nano-seconds?

Do we need a camera on the commentators at all?

They are speaking, so their voices convey their messages to the audience, we don't need to see their faces, when the tournament fighting itself is where the focus of our eyes should be.

I know it sounds like, "Do we really need to have video of them on the screen?! GTFO" but do we really?

It will be a more relevant use of space once the teams are full size

Looks fantastic on my Telly!

Just been explaining all the various columns to my kids who have temporarily lost their Minecraft machine (their machine is next to the Telly so now hooked up for the tourney lol)

There are good ships,

And wood ships,

And ships that sail the sea

But the best ships are Spaceships

The new UI is really cool but maybe as some said make it a bit transparent, or at least change the white collor.

BALEX, bringing piracy on a whole new level.

I'm not sure if i want to see more stuff, guess like most of us we want to see the space, the fight and the bare info we need, the EW indicator is an awesome thing, but the old interface was compact, ingame related and less excel warrior like.

If you watch football, would you like to see 30% of the screen covered?

I really believe it will, but the problem is that you can only see half of the battlefield.

If the UI is on either side of the screen like it has been every year you can still see everything of the battlefield. Or do like someone else sugjested and make it transparent and make the letters white or something. Like that you still have the UI in the bottom but you can still see the battlefield.

No, but in football you can easily decipher what's going on. Adding the EW for example I find super helpful in terms of finding out who is doing what.

Can the camera focus be moved up 10% of the screen PleaseTwisted
Resoution is breaking up to when zoomed in
Can we have a slimmer bar for the 6 on 6 matches
Great use of the icons
Might want to make the blue teams damage be blue. Just an idea.
Next match up at the bottom of the ATX Blue stream would be nice too.

If i dont know something about EVE. I check https://wiki.eveonline.com/en/wiki/ISK_The_Guide

See you around the universe.

Yeah, i already agreed with the EM Indicator, but still it would also be possible with the last years interface dont you think?
Enhancements can be made without messing up the rest.

Well, this could look different if you add transparency and adjust the font color, that would be similar to what i use when i am editing images or what i use ingame. Windows lose some their disturbance if you can partially see through them.

Imho the box with player info should be in the bottom lower right and left corner of the screen , its the only thing this interface has going for it .....rest of the interface can go exit as it doesnt hold any interesting info. its like a freaking annoying commercial bar on youtube, looking for the little X for taking it away lol

i think perhaps is best to replace the white background with transperent.
This way you dont have that problem of having to make the video smaller size. You will be able to go full screen on it and since space is mostly black you can use flurecent colors for shield, armor and hull bars.
Also the timer and score does not need to be that big! They can do well half its current size!

Or just go back to the old style with ships on each side of the screen and add the ewar effects.

Like many said, we dont mind the EW display. This is very nice to see, but the bar in the bottom is just to big so you miss a big part of the screen.

If you go back to the old setup with the EW icons. An other option is making the bar in the bottom of the screen smaller, so it takes only 5-10% of the screen. You dont need the bars to be this high, if you make them as big as the target frames in EVE itself they are big enough in my opinion (same goes for the EW icons btw)
