Default US GW website

Has anyone else noticed alot of lag and sluggishness from the US website? or is it a problem on my computer. (no other site lags though)


Also, if this has already been brought up elsewhere, please lock it up, or if it's in the wrong place please move. Thanks!

I've noticed a lot of lag too.

Heck, I've noticed a lot of lag everywhere. Its probably my Internet. AT&T sucks...

I have too...

I also went to it for the first time in awhile, and they've changed to more of Selling centered site rather than a hobby site...

sorta depressing

That's funny, it's supposed to be more accessable to sales, but when you click the 'add to cart' button, it never registers...

Well, they made the online store easy to find, and everything else hard to find. Consequently I stopped using the online store. After reading about what Rick Priestly said about White Dwarf, I had a nasty little feeling that the redesign of the U.S. web page is a sort of preemptive retaliation by whoever was trying to "boost sales" by removing hobby content and adding ads. If the Studio is taking back the magazine, GW-US will find somewhere else to be pushy.

I use to use the US sight all the time then it switch over to its new look and I now go to the UK sight. The loss of the hobby aspect and the poor layout really make the US site unappealling.

Yeah, we were discussing this a couple weeks back.

I'd say I kind of like the smooth, modern look, but I don't like the lag or the loss of my beloved hobby articles. I had like, 20 bookmarks that went to various painting tutorials (like the awesome fire one) but then the new US site went up and I lost them all.

I'd stop going to the site if it weren't for the store there being so easy to access...

I think it looks pretty enough, but I agree, I hate the new site. And with the bits service officially dead I have no reason whatsoever to buy from their online store anymore. It wouldn't be so bad if I could at least still find the hobby content, but they either got rid of all of it (save for the crappy painting guides) or it's too damn hard to find as I haven't found it yet (though I can't stand browsing that site for more than a few minutes, too damn SLOW).

I never wanted to buy box sets from War Store simply because I don't like ordering over the phone, but I might just do that. I could be saving gas and getting a discount. Or I could support the local gaming store which really needs it.

Hoe does making a sight laggy m,make it more accessible.It is hard to see other prices on things. And find info on models. Or to see if you will get a good deal with a battleforce takes a half hour.
