I'm not sure exactly what WoW Insider was trying to get accomplished with the new redesign. The old design was cluttered and messy on the sides, but at least it was easy to read. This new web 2.0 or whatever garbage they have going on this the stories and comments is impossible to read and focus. This reminds me of what happens when they fire the web designer and the web programmer picks whatever template she thinks look nice. No joke I used to visit wow insider 5-6 times a day to read the latest stories. Since the redesign I barely could bring myself to visit the site today, I doubt that I will keep WoW Insider on my daily rotation any longer.As for the new features, I always came here for one thing: Story content. If I wanted to blog I'll take it to a real blog. if I wanted to track what people were doing I'd use twitter. I don't need all these duplicate features, I just want some good WoW news. So, as such I'd never use any of these "new features".TL;DR: The site is pretty, and now, pretty useless.
