Modal Screen Suggestion
 
When you get disconnected or enter the wrong login information, you're taken to a screen with a single modal window explaining what happened.

Problem:
It takes way too long to leave the screen.

If you get kicked offline during an STF or other vital situation, the last thing you want to do is look at a useless screen for the many seconds it stays up. This is even worse if, like me, you have a complex password that you typo.

If you leave a Cube wondering around or are responsible for stopping probes in KASE, these are very long, very painful seconds just stopping you from getting back into the game quickly.

Suggestion:
a) Cut the page change time by about half, or
b) Allow key presses to prompt an immediate screen change

P.S. I know this sounds like nitpicking but if you're having a bad connection and don't want to let your team down, this is a seriously annoying thing.

completely agree, takes entirely too long to change and display just a message box saying essentially 'oops'
