    Beta Battle Suggestions

    Let's hear your feedback! Welcome to step one of the beta battle system. Before you post, please take a look at the list below of known issues still being worked on:

    - Mobile play has not been optimized, and will not be until we are getting ready to leave beta. This means we will not be working on any mobile-specific issues with the battle system until after we have finished working through all the bugs found on the desktop version of the site.

    - The Tutorial button will not have a guide written until after we have finalized changes to the battle system based on your feedback.

    Okay, now that that's out of the way, let's get to the feedback! What do you like so far? What do you dislike? What are you looking forward to? What makes you concerned for future battle updates?

    I feel like going into a new battle from one that just ended should be a smidge easier. Like maybe a button on the ended battle screen that says "new battle" and a popup asks you if you want to use the same setup or a new one.

    Just one minor thing right now
    What about if the "End battle" button takes you to the main arena page again? Right now it just refreshes the battle page and if you want to battle again you have to so al the clicks back (battle, battle snalrs, hope arena, visit this arena, start battle.

    Yes, I would agree on the “easier way to go to a new battle” format

    Good idea! I'll definitely add that in the next update.

    -peeks head in-
    oh gosh i always hate giving suggestions but uh....

    My suggestion I guess just has to do with the tedious process of having to keep clicking confirm? I get why it's there, the button itself makes sense! I just um...Could there be like a key on the keyboard that also links to confirm? Honestly I'd also love the actions to be keyed but that might not be really necessary...

    There's just so much clicking which is more of a problem when you only have two battle options and there's less strategy at the moment. But I can also see it being tedious later on. Having to click to confirm I got attacked? Can I just space bar it?

    I don't mind confirming my own attacks. I suspect this will feel better when I have more kith and items to wrangle.

    I'm finding confirming enemy attacks tedious. Maybe there will be a reason for it later....? But with what info I have now: I'm not sure how possible it would be, but if the "Enemy1 has used StrategyA!" box could just appear as a status box (maybe with a distinct border) below the arena and above where I make my choice for my actions?I think that would improve the flow of combat for me.

    [@MagpieM] I like this idea. It would be especially tedious if in the future we fight multiple enemies at a time and have multiple confirm boxes for what they do.

    I'm a bit too fried to write full sentences so bullet points wrt enemy turns:

    - Would be nice if they were faster
    - Would prefer them to not be easily skippable
    - I feel like pressing a key would take the same amount of time as clicking confirm, but think keyboard controls would be useful for avoiding too much clicking for wrist

    - Putting "what the enemy did" below the arena and above selecting moves would, IMO, push the selecting moves down too low and might not let the arena and moves be on screen at the same time depending on screen size (I can only barely fit both on my smaller monitor without needing to zoom out)

    - It could work to have a dismissable message of some kind, and then an extra tab of "battle history" where you can see every move that has happened?

    - Actually I'd love that last point just in general, because even with the confirmation you can still forget what moves have been done. Might make testing easier too, potentially? Or help with continuing a battle after a break.

    Could see that being hard to store, but would be a nice addition IMO!

    A suggestion: could it be possible to make the chosen Kith not default to our current active Kith? Have it be separated or have it memorized our last selection?

    The "You Won"/"You Lost" page does not look streamlined, with the solid block of color in the battlefield image and the stark white with a small centered image below. Could you overlay the "You Won/Lost" image onto the battlefield?
