By UI I mean 'the blue stuff on-screen while playing the game.' Map. HUD. Target pips. FoF. Things that help us navigate and assess targets.
"I need healing."
WHO? Who needs healing? If you're partially obscured by a flower, I can't do s--- because the marker won't render and even if it did, it shows up for like 2 seconds and disappears before I can find it.
"We need to regroup."
Again, where? Not only can I not see a marker, but I can't see the people in my own squad! I have to physically aim at every single ship, waiting until their nameplate decides to render. It can take up to 5 seconds per ship. I can't look at the map because squadmates aren't shown and only a small arc of the map even has player pips at all.
Tl;Dr: Navigation and command/awareness in this game is and has been a nightmare. And despite being unusable, it was somehow made worse with the update to the map design. Please, please re-allocate funds from the "make the front-end menu shinier" budget to the "let me actually find my own squadmates with a competent HUD" slush fund.
