Function clearly is more important than any liked design in this case.


Are you kidding?
Current font made eve ui look like a piece of crap.

Dear CCP.

Please change back to the original font or atleast give us the option. This new font is disgusting and looks nothing like EVE. It reminds me of some medievil, fantasy type game font. Its also crap to read and makes everything too big.

Don't fix what ain't broke.
Thankyou.

Old font was broke.

Gotta say, I'm not a fan of the new font. It's more noisy, takes up more space and looks too rounded (I think? Hard to describe, but it's not as sleek as before). It actually seems very dated in style, it reminds me of early word processors.

I must say, I love the new font. On my screen anyway, it's much easier to read. That being said, I wouldn't object to giving players the option for the old font if that's what they prefer, and if it's not a big technical problem.

I think the fact that the dev team believes they can't make a font that is legible and nice looking at the same time is a telling sign that they weren't good enough for the task at hand.

but hey! at least they totally got the legibility part, right?

oh wait, this guy has a -31 sec status.

maybe in another 7-10 years we'll get something better.

They can sink millions of dollars into WoD but giving us two fonts is an insurmountable obstacle.

From the brighter sides of things.. Its not that bad. If only thing people complain enough is "font"

Working as intended.
