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.
