It is weird to be honest, and i am not sure that in a good way.
Besides the huge waiting/loading times between pages and several errors displayed sometimes after posting messages or simply loading pages, i think i can get used to it but it might take some time.
Offtopic forum page looks bad.
Well... the new visual is good. But I'm nt sure if the platform they are using is good. This is a big community and I think the forum system they used before gave more flexibility to the site... But you have to wait to see the results as the site is not done yet.
I like the visuals, but the front page seems a bit cluttered and its still too dependant on Flash.
The website is a bit weird, but its certainly something new and I can get used to the new layout. I like the old MyCrysis forum topic link though, instead of the new giant boxes. I think an anti spam is necessary for the topics. We also still need polls, editing, and more. :)
I'm thankful Crytek got the site working over the weekend and I expect more improvements to be made this week. :)
From the 'Site Performance issues' thread:
Thank you for checking out the new MyCrysis site, our official launch is tomorrow and we are currently in the process of transferring our site to a live environment so you may experience some performance issues during this time.[/quote]
So loading times should get better soon...
The new site is great, really fits in with the whole Crysis theme. There are a few little things that need work on, but I'm sure the MyCrysis team know about them.
It's an interesting experience although I do have a couple questions/concerns about it.
The first being the loading times; is it because of my connection speed or is it something on their end.
The second being the layout of the forum threads. If this site explodes in popularity and a lot of people start posting I believe that it could become bothersome since the thread topics tend to take up quite a large amount of space which will quickly bump other threads off the first page.
