I agree, I really don't like this new layout at all.

I have 7 countries, Silver Edge 1-7, that start with the same letters, and it is impossible to disinguish them when fast-switching because the page lists them all as Silver Edg.... With all the clutter on the page I wish they had given us like 5 more letters so we could see our country names. The same is true in the Cash market actually, but it is slightly less annoying there.

Also it takes more web page loads, clicks, etc to get around. I think the extra complexity will really be a turn-off for new players who are less aware of the game features.

While we're on the subject, the newspaper background ../images don't load about half the time, leaving black text against black background. I have to right-click those, view image, reload, click back just to be able to read the newspaper. This has been moderately annoying for awhile.

I have to wonder why these guys are spending time redesigning a web page layout to work less well and look more ugly, and making weapons changes that seem to have no impact in the game (twice as powerful and half as many -- they said it ends up being the same for end-users --- then why are they doing it then?).

Instead of wasting time on these things I wish they would do something worthwhile like increasing across-the-board attack limits and making weapons of mass destruction more realistic.
