And it glitches too.


If you're going to add this kind of thing, at least make it fit the activated item.

Per usual it was probably a very un-tested thing, and just thrown in there with bugs. Par for the course.

Of all the things the game needs, this was not one of them.

I'm not sure why they changed it, the previous effect was well-liked, it was that interaction (gear) icon that people hated.
The fire replaces the gear, that's it as far as I can tell. I haven't decided if I really like the fire, but I didn't like the gear, so this is probably an improvement in my books.

Personally, I don't think either are needed - just the shimmering effect of the object itself (which is still there) was enough for me.

People did ask to get rid of the gear thing though, which they did with this change, and replaced it with something...a little less obtrusive? Maybe? It's a step anyway.

The Gear Icon was a bit too "make things obvious for noobs."

The fire is just all wrong for a scifi MMO.

That's why I pretend it is the Ferengi trying to beam the console off the station.

Stupid function given stupid explanation.

Anyone else thinking it's ugly? What happened to the nice subtle one that we had when the game launched? And the slightly less subtle one we only just had....

At least make it an option, right now it is really distracting!

Ok i don't like it for consoles, i much prefer to have the yellow glow without the icon or the beams of light/flames.. you have to be absolutly blind as hell to miss any of the versions we have gone through.
