[AoWWb-31] Make recruitment popup more friendly

Postby e_i_pi » Sat Aug 09, 2014 12:07 pm

The recruitment popup is a little dry at the moment, and the following observations have been made by players:
Whitebalance wrote:I found a game to join. Started choosing land aso, but I didn't see Accept. So it took quite a time and different games to understand what I was doing wrong.


Whitebalance wrote:When starrting a game I can't choose where to start the game on map, but I have to select under the fractions menu bar. I would like to choose spot from map that I see, by clicking on the spot..


So, the popup needs to be a bit friendlier aesthetically, replace the Accept button with some massive shield icon thingy I suppose, and also come up with a clicky maps function so that users can select empires by clicking on the map. That last part will be a little difficult, the first part will be dealt with during the new site layout migration.

I had this problem too. I think a fix of simply listing the territory name you will drop with alongside the Kingdom name would make it a lot easier for new players.
ex. Almoravid Dynasty (Tamesna)
or
Byzantine Greece (Hellas)

Also yeah, the accept button isn't very clear.

Yea, I think some massive square shield icon button thing would work for the accept.

Also, while trying to make it so you can click on a place on the map to choose a starting spot, I think what Ultra suggested was a good idea (change the names of places to what they appear as on the map or vice versa). Either as an alternative or in the mean time.

Alright, I'll have a good think about this one and get back to you guys with a solid idea that will work with existing code. Feel free to keep discussing the topic, this is a really important one, as it's a "first impressions" thing for the site, so it has to be right.

Clicking on an empire in the pop-up now joins as that empire. Still need to have a function to minimise / maximise the pop-up and select via the map instead
