I say go with the order that lancehoch posted, it makes the most sense if the dropdowns do in fact have to change.

I can do that if people really find it better.

that would seem a bit more intuitive, and you have to keep the sentence or it would truly confuse not only new players, but old guys like myself...-0

ahhh, i hate that the # of fortifications is the last dropdown! for the first 2 games of mine that this was implemented in, i hit end fortification because i thought i was hitting end attack....i know this was my mistake....and it only happened twice....but fortifications were MUCH better when the number of armies was listed first.

Why is the amount box now on the right? So unnecessary! I have to retrain my hands, but for what purpose?!?

I came here to find out why such a crazy change was made.

Looks like a good idea got turned into a bad implimentation. Surely the order hasn't been dictated because of analysis of our thought structure, but so that the quantity of troops doesn't change after being the first thing selected, then a territory with less troops on it being selected. "Um, huh? I mean... oh yeah! It was after analysing the way we think... yeah, that's right, yep."

I agree with all the people saying it's frustrating, and with all the ideas to improve it - like Quantity: x... or Move x troops from x to x (had to throw that in there)... or Reinforce from: x Troops: x Reinforce to: x

Since we're suggesting how to rearrange the boxes, I'll add my suggestion in.

Put it back in the order it used to be.

I always think "Fortify # From X to Y" when I'm fortifying. It makes the most sense to me.

Any way to just run a poll of premium members to gauge their preference? My problem is that the change is causing mistakes...and mistakes in forting are costly. Even if the new way is occasionally convenient...not sure its worth the cost.

Also...the change has rendered fortifying impossible in opera mini for me. Worked before, but the number dropdown doesn't work now.

So...front page poll?

Why just premium? The other players have opinions too. Personally I hate having the number at the end.

Appears to be a dead topic anyway. Nothing against non-paying members, but people could flood votes with fake players. Premium is paying for it. But I'm assuming no response means "live with it."

I don't think a poll will be run, but we are reading the responses to the topic.

Yup. Still have problems with the new order. I think of the amount of troops I want to move from THERE to THERE and dial that in, then I look at what the territory names are and dial those in.

If you can't stand the new order, it can be allieviated a bit by doing it in the order you want, regardless of the order presented on the screen.

Poll has been created: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=77983

I suspect more people like the change than don't like an aspect of the change, but it's always good to see these things in black and white so we know. If the majority like it, then I'll just quietly accept it and work around it - fair enough.

No worries, I expected there would be tons of votes from people who like the changes, and few from people who don't. The results are really surprising me.

I think Lack will need to put some thought into this change, looks like it's more unpopular than previously thought.

I'm actually more surprised by the lack of votes in total. I think it could still be swayed either way.
