the alpha client looks cool but at the same time intimidating to new players.
i don't know it just looks so compact in my opinion.
the thing i like about the current client is, its just simple, nothing fancy.
but the alpha client..
it looks way to complicated.
im not saying it doesnt look good, for the most part is looks great but it just looks so intimidating for new players to pick up and use.
At the end of the day all that matters is gameplay though.
