People will have to flee this disaster to other realms where it might be bad in some ways, but the support, price, and list of games are better.
Disaster? I don't understand. Is it really THAT bad?
Like, come on, dark theme instead of light? Some social integrations? Different layout? Imho, people are too choosy.
Can't argue with the fact that its beta, making it mandatory for everyone is a really strange move. But there is no critical bugs, you can buy, you can download and you can play your games. So if you can't live with this and 2.0 is foking crap for you, you hate it and hate GOG for doing this - not using it is a best option.
Yes it IS. Have you not heard peoples issues truly? Do I need to regurgitate what you can read about yourself? naw man, not going to list them all because I'll miss or forget some and anything I do list you just put your Hey, its ok with me answer.
If I truly had to debate this with you, I'd have to first update Galaxy again to Beta, so that I could pour over the issues. I got enough of a taste of them when I opted in (before the force happened). I gave it about a week of a trial. Some things I found to actually be there, but were obnoxiously hard to get too. I finally said to myself, I understand this is Beta, but when I can't find my games that I purchase, then its a no go. When I can't get to the store page to write a review or get to the games forum...
And I understand, that some people have found a work around where you can go thru menus to sticky a link somewhere on the Social UI, but really?
And then I found I couldn't revert! I had to forum dive and find out how to get back! Now... This was months and months ago. I think it wasn't long after GBeta came out. Lately, it started popping up things and forcing me to go GBeta. So I went on the forums to see wth, and found that all my issues from months ago?? Hadn't changed one damn bit. Not a single thing had been addressed as far as I could tell.
So yeah, it stinks real bad.
finally, to Regurgitate just my experience, even though I said I wouldn't for reasons stated:
When I had GBeta, I tried my tags, my sorts, couldn't list my games, social crap was EVERYWHERE cluttering up the UI with no option to get rid of the useless space grabbers. I remember not seeing links on my game that the current Galaxy has like settings or Store/Forum, game BACKUP/Goodies or such. I understand you like what functionality it does have beinging hard to find. That you like allot of the functionality of G1.x not being there at all. You like not being able to sort by purchase date, sorting such as it does have not saving between sessions, (this is from memory. You being GBeta pro, might know better). But not me. Some things might be there, like I said, I'd have to actually download the crappy thing again to find all its faults again. It didn't have an easy menu System for sure and was Social Butterlfy Cluttered and functionality was just too bad for me to use.
