Urban Rivals : a new design for a new website ! – Part 2 -

Friday 26/07/2013, 11:36

Hey everybody,

First, thank you for your feedback on the first version of the new site project. Our goal is to rejuvenate the current website, make it clearer and easier to use, and above all make you enjoy it. This is why we need your feedback, positive or negative, so don't hesitate to tell us what you think.

We just released a new version of the website containing modifications developed according to your feedback and the survey.

You can check it directly here : beta.urban-rivals.com

Here follows what we modified on this version :

Homepage :
- you didn't like the new home page, and that the game was located on the home page as you felt like we forced you to play
-> the home page is now more like the current website's, with news, staff events, rankings, missions and friend infos

- you didn't like the menu's colors as it looked too childish
-> we put the same colors than the current website's menu

Game page :
- you didn't like to see the game on the homepage
-> the game has now its own page. You can access the game by clicking on the PLAY button

Design and pictures :
- you didn't like the background and its black gradient, as well as several design elements
-> we created a new background, brought color to stick with UR's style

Collection :
- you didn't like that both collections (pro and normal) didn't work the same way
-> both views of the collection, list and cards, are homogeneous. The selection zone is the same, and can be used to sell on the Market, create auctions and create a deck. We are optimizing it so that it will display a lot faster.

- you like the album and having the missing cards' verso displayed
-> we are pleased to see you like it :)

- you thought the album was missing some informations about missing characters
-> we added their Market price and a "purchase" link to access directly to its sales on the Market. A "details" link is also present to go to the corresponding character page

We also corrected (and we still are) bugs you found.

Thank you again to help us improve Urban Rivals' website ! :)

Background for " Play " sucks it dose not fit with the game... needs more color and stuff.

Market and auction looks greate.

Auction system needs similiar display system to the Market. When hoovering over certain card it should display the cards stats, easier than copy the name and opening new page to check them

I still like the current version better, but just to point something out ... keep the red writing for links and other things like thread titles, player names etc. ... that dark-orange-ish is less visible.

The credit is too expensive on the Facebook why??????? :confused:

I dont understand why the "Urban rivals logo" has to be so dominant and in middle of the screen?

That is - after first look - simply waste of space that contributes nothing.

Some extremely valid points, and his analysis is spot on. The design 100% needs a rethink.

I completely understand the amount of work that went into this, I'm currently learning web design as part of my Open University course, but going forward with the current layout would be a huge mistake.

Please rethink it!
