I fail to understand how it's annoying. No one is forcing you to scroll sideways to see it. No one is forcing you to use it either. You can just scroll down and use BOB like always.

Yeah I noticed that, and didn't like it.

My only suggestion is to move the spoils back to where they were originally. Cards are important (Especially in escalating games) and should be easily seen without scrolling. It's also a little difficult to match the players to the spoils in the current format.

I personally liked it the way it was, this new update causes my screen to bounce up and down every time I take a turn.

Why even change the spoils or card indicators that we have been using for years now? The only thing this change would accomplish, especially by putting them on the end of your new horizontal info table, is to make everyone have to scroll further to the right to see them. Vertical scrolling is far better than horizontal.

But we don't want vertical scrolling for each attack right? Considering that even small maps are quite large these days, and we still have many users on 1024x768 resolution, getting a good layout is tricky.

Should the player listing & stats be above the map or below instead? Or is there a completely different solution?

I'd love to hear what you think.


Below I think is better. Many of us use bob, and that is where bob puts it, so we are used to seeing it there. Also, for those who don't like change, it wouldn't disrupt what you see when you first open the page. I would rather see the map when I first open the game, and then have the choice to scroll down to the stats if that is something that I want to look at.

That's the point. It does what BOB does. Anyone using Internet Explorer did not have the option of using BOB and lackattack wanted to make the statistics used by Firefox users available to those who use other browsers. It's a fair thing to do since there are so many people who use BOB already. It makes sense to provide that information to everyone, not just the people who choose to use a particular browser.

If you want to use BOB nobody is going to stop you, you can scroll down, use BOB and no harm is done. After you've played your turns for the next few days using BOB instead of the new information to the right of the map you aren't going to care that it is there, I can almost guarantee it.

Update to the most recent version of BOB and the problem should resolve itself.

i find it annoying that i have to scroll horizontally to see the number of cards.. i dont have much time to spend on here.. and having to do that waste times.. having it below would be better.. also on a speed game that would suck...

The columns of info are quite irregular...

Couldn't the spaces between the columns be reduced and aligned better.
And maybe put the spoils back to the left of the Player name.
That would help clean it up quite a bit...

the spoils are a matter of getting used to... nothing bad about putting them at the end.
but yeah some structure in the table would be nice

Please put the spoils back next to the names where they were before, or else make them the first column in the stats. It's not such a big deal to have to scroll to see the rest of the stats, but the spoils are important, especially for escalating. Being able to see them and the map at the same time is a huge plus.

I'd also vote for vertical scrolling over horizontal--maybe keep the names + spoils up where they were, and put the stats section below the game log? It's much, much easier to only have to scroll in one direction.
