seriously in Open Beta the Loading Screens were rough but much more apropriate... seeing a Transporterbeam while beaming, seeing a Warp picture while warping... a Turboliftdoor while ...turbolifting.
Why those ugly random Loadingscreens now... at all?
Yes, I don't understand why they changed this as well. Seeing a transporter pad or beam while beaming down, a turbolift when loading a new level of a station or a ship, etc. definitely kept you in the game more than just randomly seeing a picture of DS9 as you beam down to a planet...
If these load screens are all just jpgs why can't there be folder call /images or /pictures that will let us use screen shots from our games. I would much rather see my crew and ship then some random scar face chick with a bazooka.
Like they always say. It's the little things that make a difference and this little thing with crappy load screens also bothers me.
