v1.5 Art of Treason - Feature Spotlight: UX Improvements
« on: November 11, 2016, 05:38:38 PM »
This is a feature preview for the upcoming patch, v1.5 Art of Treason. The update overview can be found here.



Hey family, I'm back with more hot news!

The second major feature within v1.5 Art of Treason is UX improvements. Now, this one is hard to summarize because many members of the team have tweaked many Armello nobs in terms of user interface. I'm going to show a few of the major changes but please note that you'll find unmentioned adjustments littered through the game.

Pact Communications
Now that we have several cards with player linking effects, we've categorised and systemised their function as Pacts. As such, we've bolstered the clarity and communication of Pacts in general. First of all, here's a shiny new animation that will occur whenever a pact is initiated.


Also, next to your portrait, the heroes that you have pacts with are listed with the relevant effects.


Dawn Summary / Tab Screen
The tab screen has been upgraded to show The King's health and Rot, along with all information directly relevant to victory conditions for all heroes, including Rot.



As always, there's more to come! We're only just warming up.


Cheers,

<3 Darcy & the LoG team!

I wonder what BLUE prestige numbers mean?

Are they just to highlight your own prestige?

Sad to see card hand backs aren't in the Tab as well.

For all that is holy, I pray the UI suggestion I put forth in May is included!  To whom and what must I sacrifice to make this happen?   ;D

The pact improvement is much appreciated. Some games become a tangled mess of agreements and pacts, and having to page through everyone's character screens to sort it out wasn't always practical. I look forward to being able to remember at a glance who I'm (temporarily) allied with.

Sadly, my prays weren't answered.   :'(

A blue number indicates a buffed stat in some way, such as Bark Skin or Feathered Helm would turn your Body/Prestige blue respectively until the effect wears off.
