OMG New homepage design



As you've might already have noticed we've upgraded our home page design again. There are several reasons for this.

- The old one was too top image heavy, meaning people with lower resolutions had to scroll down to start seeing the content, which is an inconvenience.
- More room! With 2 columns now we have more space to play with.
- Drawing the player in. There was no suck in power on the last layout, the emphasis was put on the login table. Now it's centered around that PLAY NOW button, which will be hard to resist.
- To able to screen a screen-wide header image
- Easily show off in game features

Of course there will be negative reviews about this layout, but that doesn't matter as you only have to see it when you login! The homepage is primarily for attracting new players. The more you use this new homepage, the more it grows on you. We've been playing around with it for at least a week and I really prefer it.  Its already proven to be a success with better conversion rates from new potential players.  Might make some more tweaks here and there but that top header is awesome and is here to stay!

I hope you're all enjoying the cheap plasma & using it at the new plasma shop? Yum Yum.

Take care,
Ash

P.S if you cannot see the new layout yet, clear you cache.

Im using FF btw.

Yup, log in needs fixing! I have to click the alternative button, cos it doesn't log in after 5 seconds. Not a big problem but annoying nonetheless.

Looks good, I guess I'll just have to get used to typing in the side instead of the center, but hey, it looks awesome. :)

Erzas Midget Koala-Fishie said...

Sorry for double post: but tried both Email address and ID. Neither worked.

Guildythewicked said...

OuP said...

Should you not be focusing more on making the game better and not the home page? :P

Great new look. Very sharp and impressive... Love the quote by Anti... but shouldn't it be 'heart and soul' not "heart and sole" :P

Katani_Blackheart [Aquena] said...

Well done Ash it looks great and i like how you can see how many people are online and how many new people have signed up. Love it!!

Legion White Tiger said...

Um... You just made us look like all the others... I hope that was your intent... It seems to me that we've lost something unique... yet again?

Anonymous said...

Good ridance to Dark's awful artwork.

Legion White Tiger said...

Where did your USP go? You're losing it boy... LOL ;)

DarkAsh said...

Thanks guys. Ive put the old layout back on the login screen, i'll see whats causing the encoding error.

Jenny Graleksi (404152) said...

It's very well done, I like it...I saw it when I went on earlier, it was awesome xD

Legion White Tiger said...

Hate the new layout... sorry but I do.

Ekkie said...

I couldn't find how to login D: I prefer the old one. D:

The new homepage looks awesome Ash :D If I wasn't already a member, I soooo would have joined up :p

Boudica_Iceni_Queen said...

Very nice Ash ... it most definitely "pops" as they say. =) I shall miss Dark's artwork ... I loved it! :D I've also had some issues with login so hope the bugs are gone soon! Well done as always Ash!

Dark August Night said...

... I made this one too. ^_~

Princess Marisa Asrai said...

It's really good... XD

I personally like it, but I've noticed that since its advent, I can no longer use "kill lists" I've created. I keep getting the message "server not available..." etc. Of course, this might not have to do with the change you've made, but it's started only since.

ClickClack said...

I wish my testimonial said it was from me, not from Anti. It was a marginal-at-best witticism coming from me...now it just makes Anti look like a bad speller. :d

I dont know if that has been posted before, but if you want to attract more players you should add some pictures to desing

Anonymous said...

This is so much better. It was so bad before it was an embarrassment to send out to friends and other gamers so I didn't do it. I will now send it out so the number of players will increase with this.

hey new page is awesome but u should make it easier to login with ID.hope u give some look at my comment.

Anonymous said...

Can you at least make the login button large enough for my cursor? Thanks.

†Lady Isobel Gray† said...

LOOOVE IT!!! It's awesome, Ash! Kudos to you! =]

Anonymous said...

I have a suggestion for the new homepage.. change the security log in page (where it logs you out automatically) to match it so they're more consistent :) Other than that it looks really good!

Raim said...

Love it, Ash.

Ekkie said...

Noo, Now you've changed the idle logout page too?

It was far easier to just type in your ID and go again, now I have to find out how to sign in with it. D:

Also, The refresh centre won't work for me, unless I tell it to auto refresh every second.
