Not sure if other people use Journal the same way I do. I have quite a few pilots who keep a string of various types of missions open. I’ll log in, hit Alt-J for the journal, and get an efficient list of which missions are open, how long they have until they time out, and which Agent offered them.
Looks like this (thanks to @Sarah_Olson for the tip on using /open journal in chat):
With this I can quickly see which missions might be useful for me today, which ones need to be reset/rerolled, which ones I should finish before the timer runs out. and exactly which Agent I need to click on to Accept, Complete or reset a mission.
Now when I Alt-J, that small, efficient, informative window is replaced by this:
This ungodly abomination takes up about 800% more screen space, shows me only two current missions (unless I expand it to take up the entire screen), and displays no useable information. I only get the name of the mission - no timer, no status, no agent name.
Hopefully someone can update me on this, but in fact with the new window I apparently can’t locate the “expires on date XXXX” anywhere at all. And to find out which agent is offering it, I have to click and scroll and click on each gigantic, useless name box.
This is the sort of utterly brainless, “change for the sake of change only” that CCP has been cranking out for years now. I can only assume that CCP has zero interest in or knowledge of how players actually interact with their game, and so they’re simply spinning their wheels churning out bloated useless junk to justify keeping their names on the payroll.
That’s a bit harsh, even for me, but it’s becoming increasingly difficult to make any sort of sense of the trash “improvements” CCP is making.
