make it twice as fast, thereby reducing friction for new users and expediting the
onboarding process.

the logo will navigate back to the landing page for better navigational consistency.

expand the guild membership form to collect necessary information for guild-specific XP

Players Page:

functionalities and a more comprehensive profile view.

Player and Guild match in formatting, improving consistency.

profile usernames and display names, enhancing clarity.

issues related to Hasura.

  1. How We Should Proceed:

PRs, preferably with the help of Sero and Dysbulic.

specced and developed.

UX design - July & August

  • Finished the design for “unify playbooks, paths & houses”
  • Unify Player, Guild and Patron signup pages
  • Various (implementation support, etc.)

1. Finished the design for “unify playbooks, paths & houses”

This ended up being a fairly simple design (Figma link) from a visual standpoint, once we aligned on all details.

2. Unify Player, Guild and Patron signup pages

This was huge. I started mapping out all the journey paths for the signup already in May & June (FigJam link). During July & August we’ve done a complete overhaul of the signup pages:

  • @peth streamlined the content for all pages :pray:
  • we explored possible ways of transitioning from the last section of the landing page to the signup step
  • designed the above-mentioned transition
  • designed a completely new unified signup page, bearing the distinct MG look & feel
  • designed interactions for the page
  • designed both desktop and mobile versions
  • produced prototypes with every new iteration of the design, gathered feedback, and went on to iterate forward

What I listed above are just the final results. On the way we’ve had many discussions, and many of the smaller parts had to be designed from scratch – e.g. guild tiers, both for desktop and then for mobile.

Here are a few demos


I wrote this report retroactively, from memory, some time after the contribution period has ended. As a result, I have probably missed adding some details. Moving forward, I will do much better in keeping track of all the work I’ve done and report it in a timely fashion :blush:

Happy to hear any feedback. Thank you in advance!
