Why did they change the module tab to the equipment tab?

This lay out sucks and does not provide enough information!

Is there a way to change it back?!

It got lukewarm to negative reviews during PTS. 

I posted a thread here in General almost begging people to get on PTS and comment on the changes. Most of the response I got to that thread was "LOL PTS" and "PTS SUCKS" and "WHO CARES?"

Yes, because WG is famously receptive to feedback, particularly as of late.

The impression I constantly get with them is "if we spent decent amount of manhours writing code for something, we'll shove it into the game, period"

A lot of the text labels have been removed.  The names of the ships before and after in the tech tree were removed. 

This is on top of a LOT of wasted space, the image of the ship and port being entirely hidden behind the spread out interface, worse icons for the modules, and a massive unnecessary generic icon for the ship itself, with a name and a little "view" thing to look at the ship... but you can't change anything while you're looking at the ship.

Biggest issue on my end is in the Port view, you can't see your ship XP anymore. You HAVE to click the equipment tab to see your ship XP which is a rather unusual and probably overlooked change (i hope!)

To be entirely honest, I would have liked them to just shove the upgrades tab under the consumables tab and call it a day. This is still a rather wonky way to lay out this information but maybe it will become familiar with time.

oh, that one is a bit annoying. they probably thought "hey, you can only spend ship xp in the equipment section, lets remove it from normal so that there is less clutter."

Just hover over the captain. It shows the ship XP.

It's annoying but it's still there.

Sure, but now I have to click the equipment tab to see how much XP I have. Hopefully the at least bring back the ability to see Ship XP in port itself.

Yes, the module icons are particularly difficult to decipher. I think they might have sliced off too much from the module section to only add it to the Upgrades and Consumables section but can't do anything now.

If you move your Xp and the skills your captain has in a pop-up.

It feels like I have lost info on the Equipment tab, not sure yet, still trying to figure out just what they accomplished with the change.  I don't see any new info, just bigger icons with no labels.

Remain vociferous with complaints about WG decisions.

They have a history of responding favorably to players' concerns regarding game issues.

They will be on changing this back in no time.

It's trash. WG is trying to make the PC version more like the console peasant version.

Apparently everything requires a mouse to pause over it to get a popup.  This has the effect of slowing everything down, while you move your mouse over stuff trying to land on what you are looking for.

A:  C'mon man,  don't be THAT guy.  People can game on whatever they want.  B:  They are already working on that.  They are using the console versions as a litmus test to see what people will go for.  That's why the Odin has a paid for element,  they found out on consoles they could get away with that.  Ya'll better cross your fingers that's the extent of it,  because the console version is an absolute mess of Wargaming trying to squeeze every last cent out of players.

This is just stupid. You have to mouse over the Captain to find the XP on your ship? Who thought it was a good idea to ADD a movement to get information that was present without effort in a previous version?

Why do they keep making changes nobody asked for or needed, while neglecting changes lots of people have asked for....

WG: I have altered the deal, pray I don't alter it any further

Hey, someone got paid a lot of money to mess up fix your interface like that.  The sad thing is a year from now (or when a new manager takes over) they will probably change it again.  It's called fixing what isn't broken.  :fish_glass:

It boggles my mind how one track minded they are, some things aren't good changes but because "the majority of the playerbase has not complained we don't think we will change." Having a small popup in game to ask about how you feel with the new changes would great, that way every player who logs in has a chance to do it, instead of expecting feedback from the minority of players who use the forums. But then, I'd expect them to just say "Well, we put so much time into this, would be a shame to remove it..."

It took them three years just to get a DEMOUNT ALL SIGNALS button. I've been asking for a button to turn off emblems and patches, since they are taunts when they appear after you are dead, or even a transparent patch I could use so I don't taunt other players with that. A simple transparent patch, can't get it. 

Other people have asked for other stuff. But WG is always giving us things nobody asked for or needed. Like that change to the XP.

I pointed out in PTS  that the equipment tab lacked text information and was a downgrade from the previous tab and so did several others, but thats about the extent of it. Oh well...
