I must I find everything so tiny - the fonts, the exploration map, the market...
Which makes everything feels very cluttered since I feel like there's a lot of colors and sizes and fonts all over the place---

All those screens are with 100% zoom it's so small

I get the revamping, it's nice after all those years but really... Adjust the size a little bite please?

Edit: really? 2 manaas to "close the dialog"?? Come on.

Not to be *that* person, but is there any way to return to the older layout?

Tbh, I rarely play for the story; I enjoy the exploration, egg hatching, and dress up aspects. Not seeing my companion and avatar together, esp the cute background special companions come with, kind of defeats the reason I play.

I do really like that the exploration just ends automatically instead of us clicking a button. All we do now is click to explore again.

Ugh, if I knew this was dropping today, I would have blown all my Maana yesterday. Guess I'm not finishing the story any time soon

I'm not feeling the new design for the site. It's confusing and overall kinda gives me a headache. The old one seemed a lot more compact & smart. I had trouble finding the forum too.

//Edit: As someone has said before, this new design is clearly not meant for computer users. Completely agree

I hate the new design. Nothing was wrong with the old one. As they say, "If it's not broke don't fix it!"

You took away the six hour wait to play the mini game?

Oh and let me guess... the amount of maana to finish and episode has been raised like MCL. It's going to cost a fortune to finish an episode?

What's the point of having backgrounds if it was taken away from us?


I agree we don't need a new website UI, just upgraded graphics to reflect A New Era.

It seems like it will be 2 maana per dialog. While right now I am happy with this idea, I hope it doesn't mean each episode will start costing 5,000+ maana.

Neo, the background is still on your profile, or at least it still should be. What don't you see?

Well... I like the new outfits (too bad they removed so many good hair colours...) and the fact we don't have to wait 6 hours so that we can play the minigames again. I also like that the inventory and closet are not hidden in the profile page anymore.
But that's pretty much it. Everything else... Not a fan.

The new layout is horrible to use on PC. It really feels like it was designed more for mobile/tablet users, and I'm not digging that. The top bar (with the links for the episodes, minigames etc.) gets in a way when I try to scroll down. It should stay up where it belongs and disappear when I scroll down.
Everything looks messy (and so small! or huge), and for some reason squeezed together (but with a lot of empty space around it), and therefore feels restless and just a bad layout design.

I don't like the placement of the avatar and buyable products on the shop. It's not balanced. If I scroll down, my avatar practically looses her head, so it's more difficult to see the differences between different colour options. And if I don't scroll down, some parts are hidden anyway.

This is what I mean:

Spoiler Click to display


I'm not fan of this (the annoying top bar is there as well, making everything even worse). Also the other scroll bar for different colour options is sooo annoying. I have the same problem when I change the clothes for my avatar. Also the pictures jump up and down on their own, when I click between different clothes etc. This "jumping" happens in mini-games and pretty much everywhere else as well. It is so annoying.

The scroll bars in general are horrible. So fast and jumpy.

The minigame windows are small, and focusing on the games is more difficult for me because of that (and that darn top bar gets in the way again!! Especially in the Lava Bomb, I accidentally click the crystals and therefore kick myself out of the game). And as I said earlier before, they jump at the beginning which distracts me.

Tbh I can barely stand the new design. It actually makes me want to leave the whole game... I don't care for the New Era, so if you ruin the rest of the site for me (especially companion explorations, which are now so annoying to do with such a small and messy map), I don't have a reason to stay.

I really wish I could write my opinion in Finnish, because explaining some things in English is so hard. But whatever, I hope Beemoov (and the others reading this) understand what I mean.

Tl;dr: The new layout sucks.

It probably will cost 5,000 or more per episode. It increased on MLC while decreasing the amount of APS we got.

I found the background with our guardian and pet. It took a while for me to get back to the forum and delete that part.

The spin-offs taking Maana now is terrible considering they cost the premium currency to buy in the first place. It's possible it's a glitch though-- the event episodes from using the rings in MCL were accidentally costing AP after they first made the change so it could be a similar situation here.

Like others have said, not fond of the layout at all. The best way I can describe it is it feels like a sensory overload and it's just... not an enjoyable time.

The background, especially if blurred, should really be darker all around-- it genuinely kind of hurts to look at along with everything else.

I mentioned it when ANE was first announced that I'm disappointed they are once again removing routes (not to mention the only Elf from a fantasy otome game is a very odd choice??), but Beemoov just does not care and it's disappointing.

I'm just expecting more of the same things without any changes and a dark tone and I'm really not here for it /static/img/forum/smilies/hmm.png

Well I normally spent between 3,000 and 6,000 depending on the length of the episode, so I will be part of the minority that actually likes that it is controlled now, at least until I see it in action.

Personally I feel that the redesign of the website is not as good as the old set up. It looks like a start up website, especially with the way the market is now big buttons with a small image. The old design was easy to navigate, it was clear what all the buttons did and it was easy to use through a phone. Now I have to super zoom in to click on anything.

Edit: also just looked at the new hair styles and my teal color isn’t there along without 2/3 of the usual colors. So I guess we’re just going to have the same hair color options that we have in MCL now. All my wigs are teal, if I can’t have that option anymore I’m gonna be upset because that’s not my guardian anymore.

I wa going to write a really really long post with everything I hate from the new interface, but seeing so many people have already written them (and I'm feeling really tired) I won't bother.

For a company who is proud of how much time they've invested in the interface, it feels they haven't even tried it out before giving it to us (like most of the times). It's totally uncorfortable to use, and that without all the bugs that have been appearing. I'm fed up with the hanging crystal, that just gets in the way and is too bright. The blurry bg is getting me nauseus like many other people (I'm short-sighted and having that blurry in the distance bg is making me dizzy since my brain is trying to focus and make it less blurry, but at the same time there are nitid images, wich doesn't make sense for my brain). It's a pain to try to change your outfit and to see the items in the shop, a pain to read all those black letter on top of dark colors and a pain to read anything since everything is so small. Everything feels like they designed the app and then just copy-pasted it for the browser vesion, and I hate it.

The overall layout is messy. The page structure varies with every page which is a bad choice for website design, for probably most people. Sometimes the main elements are in the middle of the page, sometimes on the side, which is weird. They should be in the middle all the time.

The fonts are tiny. I liked the navigation bar before as it had the icons as well and now with only text it's hard to find what I’m looking for... I hope it's just about getting used to the new layout

The background is too bright with all the greenness. I know it changes with the events but there should be an option to change it to something darker right now, similar way than there's different profile backgrounds.

Also where is the button that leads to forum? Why it's not in the main menu? I had to type it to the url bar.

There's something I like tho, like the new outfits and the new (fewer) options for hair colors. Though some colors are missing that I quite often use like silver. Now it's a dark gray. Anyway, I might be able to cope with that if there continues to be purely black hair color (and clothing colors) instead of the weird bluish black.

Is it just me or is the current library layout a nightmare?

i have NO idea what event illustrations i have, i just know i have 36 (that i'll probably be too lazy to click through).

the new UI just looks like it was slapped together without consideration.

You'll have to manually switch to The Origins (Eldarya icon at the top left corner) and then go to the libraby if you wish to see your previous illustrations

I think Maeris means that you can't view all illustrations on the same page like before. You must filter through each one individually to get to the one you want.

Sigh... I didn't get to play the episode I wanted before New Era dropped... I don't feel ready at all... too soon BM too soon...

Can I also complain about the new layout? I'm not overly fond of it... It's very catered towards mobile users which I most definitely am not (and from what I've read the same goes for tons of players) This is discrimination!!

Can't we at least get the option of whether we want the old or new layout?

Edit: After playing around on it a little some of the changes aren't too bad I guess but I still don't really like the new companion page or closet and the sizing on my screen for the minigames is not so great...

Now for some positives...

I rather like the new outfits. They're so pretty although I sigh at the maana I'll have to spend in order to own them orz Lol maybe I'll just buy clothes instead of finishing episodes XD

I also appreciate that we no longer have to wait to play the rounds of minigames, it certainly is more convenient.

It's also pretty cool that we can play the first ep of New Era for free and as for how maana will be drained when trying to play ordinary episodes... I'll reserve my judgement for now...

I don't mind the design, is obviously aiming at mobile users, but I think could have some adjustments (I'm pretty sure that if people push about it, changes would be done because it's been like that in the past).

My only only complaint on the layout is the market, I like it better how it was before, is kind of difficult  to check on stuff right now.

We now spend 2 maana per dialogue but we can move freely ... I was trying to finish ep 14 on FR and sadly I got stuck in a part were I don't need to move that much but is dialogue heavy, now I want to see how easy I get away with it.

Ok, so after playing the site using my computer for a bit, I don't think the UI is that bad. It takes some getting used to, but it's not nearly as bad as trying to access it through the Chrome app on my phone.

Also, I noticed that we can play 3 rounds of each mini-game every 12 hours (unless it's telling me that it's available again at midnight, which is likely the case. I'll try again tomorrow morning). I don't know if that's a bug or not, but it's nice nonetheless!

I believe it's resetting at midnight. I played it a couple of hours ago and then the countdown was over 13h

The changes to the website are...a lot. There are some things I think work well, but others I definitely prefer how they were before, like the market and the companion page. The closet bothers me because every time you click on an item, it scrolls back up and it's just a little irritating. It'll take some getting used to but I'm not sold on all this yet. The site was perfectly fine before. I am glad about not having to wait for mini-games. I'm not upset at the changes, I'm just not sure about them yet.
