1) The broadcast type filter drop-down doesn't remember it's last setting defaulting to 'all' every time it's opened. This is very annoying as the vast majority of the time you just want to see broadcast history, not random stupid events like loot logging or fleet members joining.

2) The new broadcast layout is terrible, and doesn't show any information like the old one did, such as the person broadcasting, which makes it very hard to tell if the broadcast comes from the FC, or just some random idiot. Also IMO dropping the graphic for what kind of broadcast was a step backwards for usability as well.

TL;DR: Add back some of the old functionality to the broadcast history list-box.

Funnier is the fact I don't remember anyone having anything against the previous broadcast window. The changes are the worst you could have come up with.

The new broadcast window shows less information in a less clear way, I *seriously* want to know WHAT THE **** where you guys thinking?

**Sarcasm Initiated**

The new Broadcast Tap is just plain awesome when you need to activate Broadcast History in a hurry.

It's so much faster than the old one, (Which was very broken and needed to be replaced), so its a very welcome change.

Maybe you could put in a Non-Removable dialog box for initiating Warp?

"This action might bring you into danger, are you sure you want to proceed ?".

That way more people would die to faulty game mechanics.

**Sarcasm Off**

Take that silly change away.

This has been fixed internally and will be deployed in a later patch.

Why are you guys fixing things that aren't broken in the first place? The old broadcast window was just fine, the new one is terrible.

What about the rest? As a logi pilot the recent changes were amazing (right click lock, shift unlock ect ect.) but this is a step backwards. Please revert what you did.

CCP d00derz...you need to run some of these concepts past actual players before you waste time coding and implementing them.

Please revert to the old broadcast window!

this was a horrible "fix". The old broadcast window worked fine and had lots of information clearly available, you somehow managed remove it all

CCP should have a public execution of whoever came up with this "fix"

I'm fine with the filter, but what I don't like is the removal of the columns.

What would be perfect is:
Time | Broadcaster | Action | Target
Examples:
11:17 | Alan | Need Armor! | <blank>
11:18 | Mr. FC | Target | EnemyPilot (Hurricane)
11:19 | NinjaLooter | Looted | 10MN MicroWarpDrive II

Especially targeting is practically impossible now - any random person can spam broadcasts and no one can tell who did it or what the target is. It's impossible to match up the target the FC is calling on comms with the broadcasts, which has lead to extremely muddled damage.

Can you revert to the old format, but still keep your drop-down? Thanks.

Looking into this.

I like the new language of "target so-and-so" and "so-and-so needs rep" but the whole thing of having the name of who is doing the broadcast and the icon to sorta signify the broadcast is definitely needed.

It is a terrible change. Please revert to the old broadcast window please.

Also remember to post after you've done looking so we don't have to wait for a few months to know what is happening.

Urge to reactivate my many dropped with this (and other things) and this acc is running out too.

Hope ccp changes it back to it's old glory.

There should be some kind of poll after such changes, whether you like it or not.

The true question is: why are poor design changes being executed on existing and working features?

Stated another way, who the **** is running the show and allowing this **** to pass the conceptual planning stage?
