Our new look has arrived! This has been rolled out to 20% of our players so far to ensure everything is working smoothly.
We’re excited to share this for a couple of reasons:
Accessibility. We’ve gotten feedback about our site being difficult to read, and our new version has larger text and improved color contrast.
It was time for a fresher, cleaner look! The improved design should also help with some of the lag time players sometimes had on the Dashboard and Lobby pages.
We’d love to get your thoughts on this new design now that it has launched. They will be shared with our design and product teams. Please be specific and constructive with your feedback and suggestions – it’s a lot easier for the team to make any potential changes if we know what you like/dislike about a new feature.
Hi, I personally am not a fan of this proposed layout, the font is too large, everything is larger than before and makes the screen look untidy, the way it has been for years is absolutely fine, cozy on the eyes, this new layout is unfortunately the opposite. It feels like the whole screen is zoomed in making everything look big and clumsy.
This part irritates me more than anything:
1.3M what? Minutes? Mice? Men? Why not just keep the exact number of chips like it was before? Nice and easy to read and understand, instead of condensing it into a shortcut. Strong dislike from me I’m afraid.
Change the green to raw sienna as in the 7 card stud table - this would look much better with the navy and fuschia and easier on the eyes I think. Also, can’t see the logout in the drop down menu. And, not a big thing, but why is the friend leaderboard static now?
I agree with most of the negative comments,logout buried,lobby looks cluttered,font to large,and the red checkmark in boxes is hard to see for me.
I appreciate the effort but i rally dislike most of it…maybe you should have polled members on what they want???
Oh and lobby still jumps around for me and I HATE THAT!
Oh Lordy, I hate to be negative, and I wrote to replay immediately to get help. I was in a Royal tournament doing fantastic until the final 2. I had around 70,000 chips to his 19,000 or so. Suddenly my screen froze. By the end of the game, I had restarted 3-4 times only being able to call or bet a few times. It sat me out every hand. It was very frustrating watching him steal all my chips while I was helpless. It is play chips, but who doesn’t want to win after playing such a great game. It doesn’t happen everyday for me. I gave the hand # where it started to go bad. 967434152 It was down hill from there. As for the look, I agree with what all my friends above said. I love a good change. I know you will try to get it right after working so hard on it. Thanks for letting us voice our opinions. Also, I was the only playing the tournament with the new look, so they thought I was crazy when I asked them how they liked it. lmao My biggest concern is that I have 2 tournaments later today which I would hate to freeze up in. @4 and 9:30. Please help.
Looks like a big cartoon lol and same problems at tournament just now. Got frozen, a hand ended after turn card (2 of us all in) as I guess I won because BOOM, I was at a different table with more chips lmao:).
Thanks for that info @Sue13! The issues you mentioned shouldn’t be related to the new design. I see you submitted a support ticket about this (thank you!) so we’ll get back to you there and see what we can do to help.
I and I’m sure a few others here would just like to ask…
Is this change only a temporary trial, or is it changed permanently? Because we never had any upcoming warning prior to this. If it’s staying, I am seriously put off visiting the website because I just cannot stand how it looks now.
One more unnecessary issue:
The friends names that are supposedly Online are exactly the same color and font as the ones who are supposedly Offline. Why make it so bland and hard to read? For those who have many more Online friends at one time, it would be frustrating trying to look through the list working out who is on and who is off.
Hey bill8888, I found that if I zoom out to 80% on my browser, it’s a little more tolerable and the menu works fine, although it’s just putting a small patch over a large rust hole, only a temporary fix.
