    I was skeptical at first, but the Unity version has quickly grown on me.

    Yes, it has a lot of bugs and is far from perfect, but here are the key points:
    - It's back in the browser where it belongs
    - It supports Mac & Linux
    - It's fully playable, tons of players are already over level 20 after only a few days
    - When the server is not under a huge stress it loads the game a lot faster than the Flash Client
    - You can adjust the text size to your own preference

    For me the pros by far outweigh the cons. I think they should fix the most critical bugs and then roll it out. The critical bugs being:
    - The crashes and out of memory issues
    - The zooming
    - The questbook & level-up related problems
    - The invisible text
    - The barracks sync issues
    - Can't see who's online

    The other stuff is not so bad and can be fixed over time. It's not like the Flash version is perfect, it has plenty of bugs and issues of its own.

    Instead of putting more work into the dead Flash version all effort should be on improving the Unity version.

    Correct, it's just font setting option (could be "Arial" or "Times New Roman", no matter).

    It really does not matter who invented it and why, it is still inappropriate. It is displayed by BB - therefor it reflects back on BB and how they see a group of people who has a disability.
    If for some reason support feels the need to edit what I wrote, please delete entire post instead, dont put words into my mouth that I never said.

    Let me see if I get this right. BB are using a font specifially created to make it easier for dyslectics to read, and you are offended by that?

    Are you serious?

    I hope it's because of its fancy look maybe

    As for me, stacking windows are a very handy feature – for example, I don’t have to leave TO, to check messages or build something.
    Also, it's not like that all windows stack up, seems to stack only windows of different type: clicking on different workplaces will replace the last workplace window with the newly selected one, which I like as well.
    But since I do understand that in some cases it can be annoying, or that some want it to work as in the Flash version,
    I think it would be good to make it an option, where by default the windows would not stack;-)

    Most windows should have the pin option to sticky it to stay open. But the default option should be to close all other windows when opening an important window, like the build menu for instance.
