    This new UI is a step backward. The new look does NOT fit with the theme of the card game. The art style is a downgrade. It is hard to see anything, the entire UI feels like it was made to run on lesser machines or smartphones instead of a PS4. Please revert the UI patch or offer the ability to use the old UI. Otherwise I am done paying to play… VIP14.

    This new UI is absolutely terrible. Nothing was wrong with the old UI so I’m not sure why you continue to spend money and time developing new ones. The new icons and layouts are flat, ugly and difficult to read. Please at least give the option to use the old layouts and art.

      Но большое спасибо за:
      – новое королевство (правда, на планшете нет его)

    I couldn’t agree more. The cartoonist style has been lost and replaced with god knows what to call it. Sure there’s a bit more infobdisplayed then before, but that could have been done without revamping the entire layout and style. Put simply overall the new design sucks.

    I like the rewards screen at the end of a battle. I also like that you can set a defensive team more easily for each day of the guild wars. For everything else I agree that it’s worse. The battles themselves especially feel very cluttered and it’s hard to keep track of troop stats and see when someone is charged.

    I usually assume that when something is difficult to see it is because of my defective colour vision, however from what others say this time it seems to be difficult to see for many. White text on light background, dark on dark, and such things. Everything is smaller. I do like the game and I might get used to this, however it’s not very good on PC where I play, I am guessing it might be better on mobile but I wouldn’t know.

    New UI, especially combat screen is horrible.

    Stats are harder to read, status effects are harder to visually understand as well. There are a ton of space that could’ve been used, especially on combat screen.

    World screen is darker and kingdom bonuses (stars) are harder to see in a small screen. Traitstone designs are worse as well, it’s now a challenge to see the color and level of the drop.

    Only positive thing I can say about the new UI is it’s smoother and a bit faster. Victory screen is clearer than before, in which we had to wait/tap for every result.

    I expect a fix, especially for the combat screen.

    I absolutely hate the design of the new update. The cards, world interface, menus, all look cheap and flat, lifeless. I have played this game every single day for like a year on my Xbox One. The cards have shrunk or something and that horrible line on top and bottom of each one is completely unnecessary and kills the clean beautiful layout of before. I will probably uninstall. The new features are fine, but the interface needs reverted or vastly improved again. Not happy. Listen to your feedback!!!!!!!!!!!

    I find it harder to see the rarity of cards in battle, sometimes text is harder to read, and some of the troop filter options have gone.

    On the plus side… well, the way it presents what you got out of a battle or set of keys is OK, although not being able to immediately view the card details is also a step back.

    There’s a good reason that EVERY SINGLE COMMENT about the new update is how much they hate the new UI. It’s inferior to the previous version in many ways and superior in very few. Its problems are both aesthetic and functional and such a dramatic backwards step that it’s truly astonishing that it’s been signed off and rolled out like this.

    I speak for my hole guild.
    This update is absolutely horrible.
    You have no overview about anything especially at the gameplay.
    I became headaches when i try to find out the stats on my troops!
    No overiew about the world map, about the rewards at the and of the battle, about rewards from any tasks – there is no end!
    So come on guys pull out your backup and bring the old version back to servers.
    Don’t change a working system.

    I came here just to echo the feelings I’ve read a million times today already: a big part of Gem’s charm was its fantastical, even goofy at times look. The fact that every card was exactly that – a virtual card – made collecting them and looking at them all the more attractive. Now the UI looks just like the latest Apple product was released: boring, not fitting the style of the game and, worse of all, hard to connect with during actual battles.

    It’s not rare for new UIs and menus to get criticized and eventually just accepted, but in this case, I’m afraid a lot of players are just straight up leaving the game for a while – as is my case. Not to mention me and others are immediately stopping spending more money on it, which I did before out of a true desire to help the developers keep it up and rewarding them.

    TL DR; please give at least an option to keep the old UI for older players – we want our troop cards, not our troop images/squares.

    I hate the design function , loss of trait filters , game play has been altered and when ppl start seeing how you’ve tried to cause color matching combos from happening it is causing a player from getting a benifit to now giving ai’s to get multiple combos in one turn . Leading to more games with lopsided outcomes against a player from taking color bar sets away

    Playing on Android…The new ‘update’ for the UI…I’m very sorry for all the time you must have spent creating it….for who knows what reason…it’s so horribly ugly…I never thought I would find myself posting a complaint.

    The previous UI and card frame styles were very colorful and cartoon like. Everything matched, everything was thematic. Now everything is disjointed and ugly and flat and uninteresting and hard to read.

    Even the main game board somehow has this translucent background that makes seeing the gems a nightmare.

    Please add a way to switch to classic UI or just admit a mistake and revert the look entirely. Nobody needs to see this. Ever.

    If this was how the game had looked originally, I never would have started playing.

    What were you thinking?

    Often we disagree with new release because we are used with the previous one, but in this case, it’s not an upgrade but a regression. If you try to write somethink write on write don’t be surprise with the result : you don’t see anythink. Idem with the list of what we get after a fight, previously it was easy to see in only one screen, but no we have to go left and right to see all.
    Please go back and cancel this release.

    2 – Kingdom stars are depicted backwards (blue vs gold stars)
    3 – Font colors are difficult to see when over banner for team
    4 – Gem match trait nerf – too powerful and affects life gain, gold gain, damage dealing etc for too many troops

      I had trouble pilliaging in the dungeon on iOS. I’ve found this workaround. Close the app. Re-launch it. Tap Games. I see a black “Choose a Game” tab. Tap the X to close it. Tap Games again, and you should see the Dungeon and others this time. Click Pillage, and you should be able to fight. After you win or lose, you will have to force quite the app again and repeat the above steps. So buggy.

    A few design change suggestions that might make the new UI more user friendly.

    Put the amount of coins instead of the percentage back into the task menu. It is annoying working out if I have enough GP to complete a task or not.

    Add some sort of indicator to the class list in the hero section that lets you know which classes are complete and which need traiting. It is frustrating going through the list trying to remember what you still need.

    Bring back the sort by activity filter in the guild roster.

    Add a sort by trait stones required to the troop section.

    These changes will only make the game more playable. They won’t stop the new format looking like crap but we cant have everything.

    I personally don’t like the new UI because it is kinda clunky, and just plain awkward to navigate. I think a compromise where we have the old UI back with some of the positive aspects of the new update. Also, nerf the creatures that need to be needed (looking at you Queen Mab), and leave others alone.

    That sure is one pretty site you have there. Can I ask you a very simple question? What kind of fertilizer do you use to make it grow so wonderfully?
