It's look like cheap photoshop from Ongame client. In reality, if they would make it fast, stable, and added waitlists it's fine for me.

Awful design. They should give us the option to use the "old" client, just in case we don't want to be treated like fish who table-select by chosing the best looking female pictured next to the table.

Re: PokerStars 7: The All-New Desktop Client

Really truly awful i hope this is a joke. Why all the shiny? It's so distracting and tacky.

They have crammed so much stuff in to the interface it's just too much going on at once. And not to mention that because so much has to fit in there no single interface element is particularly usable (all those list boxes where you'll be scrolling for days both horizontally and vertically to see everything... and thats if they have horizontal scrollbars... just look at that buy-in range box! useless!).

Re: PokerStars 7: The All-New Desktop Client

could a stars rep please confirm that we will still be able to use the old set up as well?

(i think its probably been tailored to be best for new players, which is good, but older players would probably be better served not having to make the switch imo)

I would need to play with it first (which I can't do right now, FML USA), but it looks like it would be helpful when choosing tables.

Re: PokerStars 7: The All-New Desktop Client

I think that if the people who scream no are using the original orange skin, they should be disqualified by the conversation.

The design is sleek enough, I don't see anything that's disqualifying. I would like to play with it first to have.... you know.... an opinion that isn't out of my ass.

I don't think people realize how messy and newbie unfriendly the old(current) client is for new players.

Re: PokerStars 7: The All-New Desktop Client

LOL they got rid of the traditional, expected, "there in every program" menu structure in favour of some dumbed down clicky buttons to the right. This has to be a fake... how can they be SO stupid. This is word and the "ribbon" all over again.

Except the ribbon was actually fine once you got used to everything being in a new place, i just can't imagine this being nice to use *ever*.

Re: PokerStars 7: The All-New Desktop Client

To me it looks like a reskin of the FTP client with a dynamic table viewer.

I'm not particularly worried about the layout as long as it can be maximised.

Wonder if there any under the hood improvements.
