    The app also now asks you for tracking permission? (iOS)

    What's that about?

    Lol, this makes tiles a bit 'bouncy' when they fall down the board. Not very useful, but okay.

    To be honest, I'd rather have seen an option to reduce flash effects which is still abundant.

    I've gotten that update asking for tracking permission across apps from many apps today, i think it must be a new OS feature.

    Current issues with the new gameboard:

    1. The new tiles make it hard to see the "suggested match".   The suggested match is so faint or the prominence of the new tiles are too much making it hard to identify the "suggested match" quickly.
    Maybe my memory is foggy, but the new suggested match "look at me" tile moving animation seems more pronounced now.

    It'll take a little getting used to, for sure. But everything does. I won't pass judgement on it (well, not too much) until I've used it a fair amount.
    In fact the only thing I will say is that it's really difficult to adjust to when the board dims on the enemy turn. On the old gameboard, only the background changed, but now the tiles are dimmed as well.

    It is much easier to see on my iPad. I did think the game was supposed to designed for the phone but maybe I’m mistaken about that

    This is really annoying.  I hope they add a setting that would allow this to be turned off.

    For starters increase the transparency of the character symbols on the tiles. It´s a match-3 puzzle game and the human eye can more easily recognize colours than symbols. It's even worse for folks that have sensory issues. 

    At least let us have the option to go back to classic look. You can keep the current layout, just let us toggle the tile colours.

    This. It is also difficult for anyone with eye issues or prone to getting headaches - dimming the board and as dark as it goes, is really hard on my eyes. It makes it difficult to play the game on the regular.  Stop the tiles dimming, and I think it would solve the issue.

    I know we are all sad about the UI, but is anyone else’s after-match rewards that you send to team mates now opening mobile Safari and then presenting a dialog asking if you want to open the link in MPQ? I’m not sure if that’s an OS update or an app update, but it is a new behavior that coincided with this release.

    Yeah.  Did that to me today too.

    Yes, been happening since the update.

    Edit: Since the last mpq update, to be clear.

    Did you maybe not accept the Ad Tracking after the update? That might be related.

    So probably not an intentional nerf per se, I have to imagine it was never intended behavior, but along with this update G4mora's Deadliest Woman no longer treats charged purple tiles as friendly specials for the purposes of insta-kill. Just thought I'd let y'all know if you lean on it for Challenge nodes and don't want a surprise.

    Ouch.  Not that i specifically leaned on it anymore, but this team is one of my 6 Challenge Node killers.  Good tidbit of info to store away.

    Awww. That's disappointing. I had hope for 5 seconds that I could come back and play again with the new UI. But that was one of the major issues which made me sick, so without that change, probably not worth trying. Sigh.

    Another stealth update: when 4* Scorpion was released, Red was his strongest color and Green his 2nd strongest. The damage numbers have now been flipped and Green is now his strongest color, Red 2nd. Matters if you run him with/against characters with powers affecting strongest colors (e.g. 5* Carpool, 4* Valkyrie, 4* Captain Marvel).
