Hey Tankers,

Let us know what you think of the new Personal Mission changes!  You can find the full list at the top of this post.

The new interface is a massive pain to navigate. There's no easy way to tell which missions you haven't completed with honors with a quick glance. I'd rather have functionality over form.

 

Also, no changes to HT-12-3? By far the most cancerous mission I have ever attempted.

as mentioned:

UI is absolute trash, just like the Mission UI.

Long term players get the shaft on camo already purchased.

The missions interface was terrible, and this one might even be worse.

 

EDIT:  Just watched the video and at the 45 second mark, it says the old interface felt a lot like book keeping.  Yeah, that's exactly what we needed to do with it.

I like the way you did the new interface. Gives a more atmospheric setting. Just a little plus.

 

The set up on the board is nice visually. Scrolling through it was a bit laggy for me this morning when I went from heavies to TD's, etc. but I can deal with it.  

 

Had a little difficulty telling which missions I was missing having honors on as well...just as someone else mentioned. 

 

Like the special camo you gave out but was disappointed I was not reimbursed for the camo previously purchased for those vehicles.

I rather like it more, it's a big shift so it takes some getting used to. But now not only can we view upcoming missions for a set, but we also have a theme which makes it seem war related. Also the addition of the CAMPAIGN tab is much appreciated.

 

The double check-marks with circle is a decent way to diversify completed and completed with honors. 

 

The only thing I'd like to see different is a different way to see a mission completed with orders, as the small icon is easy to miss. Maybe make the missions yellow or something?

Also, new PM UI is terrible. In past at least I could filter which missions I need to get better at; now I have to carefully look only for one check mark regions.

 

Also, those "orders" - why they cannot be used on completed missions in order to trigger them as "completed with honors"? What are players who already have 260 to do with them?

 

Did the two of you somehow not notice circles or something?

 

 

On the note of 260, why should people who have the 260 get some magical thing in addition? They have the main reward for the missions sets, which is the tank. Completion of all things with honors nets the same thing as it always did. A medal.

Click on the Campaign tab or the little ribbon in the garage like you previously could.

I shouldn't have to notice circles. I should have a nice, comprehensive list of everything I have done with and without honors. The new personal mission UI is just unnecessary clutter.

The new UI is clutter.  I much preferred the spreadsheet like UI, as it was quicker and easier to filter by completion status.

I am also not a big fan of the way the secondary requirements on some of the X-15 missions were made considerably more difficult, but that may just be selfishness speaking.

I rather like it, and it seems rather well received. It's also comprehensive as all of a type is displayed at once, and is easy and rather fast to navigate classes as well. 

 

It's in a nice grid, the circles stand out so filters are redundant, especially as all the missions for a vehicle class are displayed at once in larger font for the numbers. The old UI was harder to read with smaller font.

Also, is it just me, or is it hard to tell the difference in the various badges at a galnce?  Particularly the 1st and 2nd class for each stage.

Woudln't be it good that you can "boost" a mission you've already completed without honors with and order to act like it was completed with honor? IDK, it just seems that the changes have gone for worse.

So, several people are reporting that they are unable to reclaim orders that were automatically applied during the changeover. Nor are they getting an order for the mission they just completed with honors.

See this thread as an example:

http://forum.worldof...cade-by-wgming/


I can say, however, that a mission going from uncompleted to completed with honors does work and grant an order post change, as I just competed HT-15-3, and received an order.

I'd also like to take this opportunity to complain about the pop up when I entered the campaign UI asking me to spend orders on LT-15-3 to get the T-55a.

The fact that orders cant be released when results are improved is egregious and unacceptable.  The fact that WG is not calling this a bug, and is rejecting people's tickets should be embarrassing.  I have a hard time believing that the intent all along was to short-change some users on their orders based on when they completed the mission.

 

Please fix this so people who did the missions before the patch are able to get the same rewards as those who complete them after.
