Is this a Battlepas?
looks good blizz, now how about the rest of the UI?
can we get a befor and after pic to see how it looked before?
That would be hilarious and sad lol.
Nah it's not a battle pass because battlepasses have that second tier of stuff that you can only get by paying for them.
Not too keen on the design. It's too "modern" and simple. Large amounts of wasted space on all sides with minor fluff in said space, which looks fairly shallow. I mean, it's not like we're going to be staring at this UI for extended periods anyway, but even the island expedition table looked better. It also does look like an exceedingly simple battle pass design, despite not actually being said bad game design. I don't remember what the previous design was, but I know they can do better than this.
I'm just going to appreciate the added UI rather than argue or complain. Thank you Blizz, this was needed.
The AP acquisition curve was also aggressively shaped through the AK mechanism. While there was not a hard cap, the exponential nature of the AK multiplier meant it was very difficult to get either far ahead or far behind of where the developers planned you to be.I'm not familiar with all the Renown mechanisms so I will accept your assertion that it is even more heavily managed than AP was, but it still sounds more similar than different to me.
