Nope. It wasn't a good thing. Over the years we have encountered a ton of players who have no clue how to equip their items.
What?! Are you serious?? I never realized it was something that complicated. LOL Understood but still I'm afraid the change in this update won't serve the purpose.
Now it looks even more sophisticated! Besides, do you really expect those who had no clue how to equip their items in that simple previous layout, would go in setting, carefully look around the menus and switch to the advanced mode? It was puzzling even for some old guys here including myself. Right after the update, I had to start a round (by coincidence, it happened to be my 2nd round of VT LOL) with an unwanted hybrid and a wrong driver as I got confused by the new look and layout. LOL Silly me, I know.
I believe a short tutorial video on how to edit equipment much like Leadbetter's how-to-hit would've got the job done.
But I know you guys are trying different things to make the game better and we all appreciate it. Cheers.
