Hi Crytek! I just wanted to give you some feedback about your new forums and roadmap
- Nice design. I always preferred the grey and darker ones (example Photoshop)
- Now it feels more acessible - good job!
Also I waited for the updates of the roadmap and I can say that I´m quite excited!
I´m so much looking forward to the new material editor. I hope you have a stall at Gamescon this year so that I can meet some of you in person (and maybe play HUNT?) :)
Keep going guys!

P.S: Bought Ryse. It still looks better than most (AAA) games in 2016/17

Yes but the grey font color on dark grey background is painful.

I have one question to the accounts informations, why there were not migrated?

It's a fresh start with a fresh forum. Everyone starts with 0 posts. I used to have 153xx posts. But i'm fine with it. Forum is much better now. If you click your current avatar you will see Posts and Joined date, allthough it's based on the new forum, not the old.

Just wanted ask about this 'fresh start', where is all game threads? and Art threads? and no likes for posts? I think is all good thing no more likeability contests which emerged from social media the whole 'like' system is become part global control + suppression good job going in different direction more concentration on content rather than popularity..

I like the new forum too. It's just every page load takes 5-6 seconds.
I checked the console, and the first response takes usually 5sec, than loading the stylesheets / pictures / scripts are from cache/under a a few ms. So loading the forum board, and navigating to a topic takes at least 15sec. It really throws back the experience :( Wonder if it's just me or .. ? (Yes, every other website loads fast).

Thanks for the tip lavizh, the old content still has some useful information that is relevant to current CryEngine releases :)
