    I'm getting these weird, misplaced snow tiles in the 2D client.

    Also, not sure why, but plain old grass isn't snow.

    There have been serious issues with the atlas in classic client since they made it KR-ready. Lots of glitches, even the new expansion areas are choppy and unrefined. I'd like to say that didn't follow into the EC but since they downgraded the graphics from KR there have been similar glitches in the landscape; not as bad as classic but still very poor.

    Can you pass through those erroneous floating tiles or do they block?

    And they also do the old T2A Beta Mob-Over Smear... meaning as you pass in front of it, it leaves an image of your character in the improperly drawn black-space that the client isn't expecting. Which, as I recall, causes memory issues with the client... at least it did back in T2A Beta when some of the textures hadn't been properly instructed to stretch.

    They block because they blocked last time they used it when they weren't just floating boxes. It won't be any more troublesome than the last time we had snow... it just looks bad.

    I remember quite distinctly the small mining spots that dot the landscape being blocking from the snow... I remember all the complaining from the PvPers that kept running into them.

    No, they changed the graphic or the underlying drawing mechanism.

    The snow is set as replacement tiles for standard terrain tiles - so "little tree" becomes "snow tree" and "mid-sized rock" becomes "snow pile".

    Anyway, this broken terrain is definitely new.

    Ditto. I never saw these at ALL the past times we've had snow. Definately something new.

    This isn't even remotely the same code they used last year to turn Britannia into a winter wonderland.. Last year the tree canopies were white, as were the majority of the rest of the flora (or they were replaced by snow mounds).

    This is just lazy coding. And while I prefer the EC.. OMG.. Snow looks awful, and every bit of green flora clashes horribly.

    While I want winter snow, this is a case of do it right or don't do it at all.
