I would like to waste my time on playing the game instead of managing silly features (hitting moving targets to see if they're worth to loot) or wait for animations to play out only to be presented with a notice that this one's a no go. Glad you at least agree with me on the second point. Oh, wait. You agree to not care. Oh, wait, both 1 and 2 pretty much boil down to the same. I don't get you.
if message saying that "network is under heavy load from an unknown hacker" is clear to you, then I envy you. To me it says that (some) network is under heavy load. Maybe the game's server is full, maybe there's a problem with my internet connection, or maybe the game is under maintenance. I'm glad you were presented with every possible message when you started playing, so you clearly knew that there's a different message for maintenance first time you've seen this one; I wasn't so lucky and I have not seen a message about maintenance yet. After playing for few days this message is now obvious to me too. What's different between us is: I try to see beyond point of my nose and understand that since the message confused me, it will confuse many others. But sure, "I know what it means, so I don't care about rest of the world" is also a valid point view.
Again, don't care either way. And legal's response about stealth countering this "problem", if one may call it that, pretty much solves it anyway.
1) 2) For 1, it doesn't bother me in my opinion, so for myself I don't really care whether there's an animation or not. For 2, I do think it will make a difference since it will reduce abit of time wasted and actually keeping you on the screen where you click, not returning you to home everytime. For you 1 and 2 are the same, for me it's not.
3) "network is under heavy load from an unknown hacker". If the pop up only told me "network is under heavy load" then I would assume either maybe this is the notification I get when I'm being hacked, or the server is full. I'm not presented with every possible message, but when I got those messages, it becomes clear from the text itself, no confusion whatsoever that would make me post a thread to suggest making them simpler. Either my common sense is too high or you're just trolling. Because the messages are really self-explanatory... and sure, "I don't know what it means, so I'm sure many others also don't understand them", which also a valid point, yes.
