  • The new chat is worse than ever

    No offence to ubisoft, we've had a chat gui for so long, then you made it buggy whenever scrolling, it was usable though. I didn't expect it to get any worse, but it did. The old chat GUI had something special, its simplicity. We don't need these pale colours and multi tabs, and in fact, those ruin it. We got so used to the old chat, I can't tell whether someone is messaging me or it is a super broadcast or just normal chat. Was the change really necessary? If you're going to put effort into something, playtest it first, and ask a sample of experienced players to try it.
    You don't have to slam everything right into the game, and you surely don't have to spend hours on designing something you know everyone will hate. If you don't want to waste your efforts, go on and improve the new chat GUI. But for goodness sake, give us the option to use the old GUI. It just is much better and clearer.

      You can't just say ubisoft knew everyone was gonna hate it. They got an idea and implemented into the game for the sole purpose of trying to make things easier for the players. Sure you don't like it and others may as well but you either suck it up or complain enough so that they do something about it. You choose.

        They gave us a preview few months ago and people complained about that. I'm speaking on behalf of almost everyone, not just myself. Well, try to get me someone who likes this chat GUI and doesn't see how flawed it is.

          Check the poll for "do you like the new chat" or something like that. Notice that it ain't 100% of "no, change it back"

              I want tilt controls on my text GUI.

              But seriously, I cannot imagine why anyone thought that would be a well-received change.

              Just finished transcribing this…deliberating on whether or not to adapt it into Growtopia.
              The answer is yes and at NOTE63.

                I'm just gonna quote what I said in the feedback thread because I feel like it's very relevant here:
                Originally posted by DynPlaysGT View Post
                Everything about the new chat is awful. If it ain't broke, why try to fix it?
                • The tabs take up way too much space for something I'm likely never going to use (ideally, they should look like browser tabs; taking up only around 1 line of text of space with a small icon and name. The option to filter chat is nice I suppose, but as it is right now just seems obnoxious).
                • The new colours are jarring (why change them when they've already been well-established for 6 years now?).
                • The gap at the left side of the screen also looks bad, it looked better when the chat actually touched the side of the screen IMO.
                • The weird brackets at the sides look messy and redundant (I don't need a [W] to tell me that text is coming from a player, the player's name already tells me that. I guess it's handy for differenciating between system messages and broadcasts, but it doesn't need to be there for everything).
                • /me has been removed for no apparent reason.
                • Typing "/bc", "/cb", or "/sb" on its own no longer tells you the price. If this is intentional, then why?
                • The new character limit is too strict. Whereas before I could type the whole line and actually be able to type a full sentence at once, I now have to split my sentences into multiple parts. For a fast typer, this just makes the existing "Spam Detected" even more of a problem than it was before. There should also at least be some sort of indication as to where the character limit ends.

                These are just the things I could notice when I briefly logged in earlier, so I'm sure there's other issues I haven't noticed. Personally, I'd love if we were at least given an option to use the old chat, if something like that is even possible.

                  Very well spoken, guess this will go buried with rest of constructive criticism. You know ubisoft

                      henlo

                      the new chat update is bad
                      it just looks bad
                      the buttons are annoying and I have to scroll chat down or I cant read it because even though the buttons aren't there it cuts off the chat
                      also it doesn't stretch to the left side of the screen anymore
                      what was the like real definite purpose that they had to revamp it ?

                        Yeah its terrible
                        Probably the worst part about it is: on mobile you cant type before the stupid white bar shows up, and for some reason every time you type anything it takes longer and longer for it to show up. So after like 100 messages you have to literally wait like 1.5 seconds to even start typing each time which is just unacceptable
