This is my first here on this board. And I want to be honest from the very start.
I'm not gonna kiss butt by saying I like the design of this boards. Why not? Because I don't like it. I was so happy that there was community for Battlegrounds like there is for aok.heavengames.com
for Age of Kings and aom.heavengames.com
for the upcoming Age of Mythology. But when I came here ... I was a bit dissapointed.
It looks awfull ... there I said it.
Technicly I like it. I like it that you can give your message an icon. I like it that I can add smileys with this cute menu to the left
I just don't like the look. Just because Star Wars was an old movie doesn't have to mean a site about it has to be black and white (it isn't even that old ... it's shot in color).
And just because Battleground doesn't have a good logo doesn't have to mean you'll have to have an equally boring header for a Forum.
Just take a look at boards.theforce.net
, the Forums of TheForce.Net. It has that nice header with all those Jedi masters and nice colored boards.
We're talking Battlegrounds here. One of the most wanted games. Which will be good to watch too. 6 totally different civs each with their own look and feel. It's based on the most diverse battles in the Star Wars timeline, battles on plains, snow, forrest, dessert, swamps, asteroids, space platforms will give you an even more diverse decor than Age of Kings did. And after a good game you come here and find out that you don't need that fancy color-monitor of yours, cause a black-and-white one will do just as fine.
Pfew ... did I type all this? Don't get me wrong. I'm not flaming anyone, I'm not gonna kiss butt. I appreciate it very much that there is a site like this (just bookmarked it ... I don't bookmark a lot) ... but I dó have the right to complain ... do I?
That said ...
