I don't know what all these new icons mean.

I don't see why I should have to learn them after using the old ones with no problems for 10 years. Roll


So CCP should just stop changing ? Let's roll back everything to year one.


Damn right that ancient niche UI looked 100x better.

Bad Link lol

Overview Translator BPC's coming soon to the Eve Market place. Shocked

Of course you will have to train UI for Morons lvl4, did I mention the new skill requirement.

Who signed off the overview icons....???

The Icons are absolutely woeful......................

Game developers seems determined to destroy EVE's own identity by frigging around with icons to the point it no longer feels or looks like eve...

Classic 'new management' operating mode, change things that work for the sake of it so they can take credit......

Pointless and pityful work....

Soooo. Regarding the icons, it boils down to almost everyone loathing and despising them, and a couple of trolls claiming that they offer the path to enlightenment and infinite clarity..... Wonder if you will possibly listen this time.Shocked

That would be me and my team, Team Game of Drones.

We are reading the feedback you are providing.

All I can say at the moment is please take some time to get used to the new icons if this is the first time you are seeing them. It has been a while since they last changed, if ever, and it will take a while to learn them again.

We are aware that the new icons do not look great with 90% UI Scaling. This is an issue we are looking at but is a bigger project due to the nature of UI Scaling.

We are monitoring your feedback and will try and respond to your issues and concerns.

Thank you for all your feedback so far.

CCP - Do you guys test anything before patching? Are you sure you do? Like, REALLY sure? Because it doesn't look like you do.

Not sure what's worse: a dev department that doesn't test, or a dev department does test and produces patch this buggy anyway.

Please provide your playerbase, with eyes that do not operate with the usual physics regarding optics in the real world.
As that seems to be the only alternative, if you continue to persist in designing icons that do not take into account real world issues of legibility.

Walk down to your local optician, and ask his opinion, you really have a serious problem here, and need to face up to it.

Hi CCP Claymore. The ppl don't want to get used to them. They want to have an OPTION to use old one or new! Personally for myself and my corp mate and old players we want to use the old one.

Thank you for your buff to large scale gang warfare. It would appear the easiest way to deal with the new icons is to ensure you have 3 times as many on grid as your opposition.

Nice stealth balance to help current sov holders defend their territory against small gangs testing out the new entosis links.

Sh*t deflectors on maximum, captain!Straight

Hang in there, pickup a bottle or two for your crew, and you'll get through this.
Most of the icons seem logical. Tough art project when you are given <40 pixels to work with...

Honestly though the feedback on the test server feedback forum is pretty much a microcosm of what is happening here, with at least a 3:1 bad:good ratio. With the new map, players were happy with the option to turn it off - I was extremely happy I could still use the old map. It will take you a long time to iterate through this sufficiently to please a majority of people, so in the mean time it would be hugely beneficial for both designers (using metrics of usage), and players to have the option to go back to the old icons, so they can play the game the way they like to in the mean time.

Options. To not have them and have something like this forced just makes lots of friction happen.

You can respond by reverting the icon garbage, have you looked at it? Are you a Monopoly fan?

Okay, you got me there CCP. How much should I pay for you to bring back the old icons? No seriously, just tell me the number. Because I am not going to get used to the mess. I am not going to lose ships shooting MTU or a station service instead of the enemy just because you think I should give a try to something nobody asked you for. Well, if you give me free ships, then I might reconsider ofc. You could've fixed the damned twitch.tv integration that you introduced in the half-baked state (resets resolution to 1024x768, etc) months ago and never touched after that.
