Why did Gametrailers ruin their website?

Not that I visited it much before but God damn I just went there now and it looks like liquid ****. The damn videos take forever to buffer now and dip in and out of HD and 280p wtf.
Why would they design their website to run worse?

No one knows. Maybe a motivational speaker convinced them that pointless change is good.

It was near perfect as it was before. At least compared to the butchering they did to it. I used to visit a lot. Now not so much.

Did you change your video settings from Streaming to Progressive and then HD? It'll force HD all the time if you do that. Videos run fine for me other than that. Only thing I don't like about the new site is you don't get that big list of all the videos in release order on the front page anymore. It was so convenient.

its not only their main site that's ass. they had broken forums for the longest time and when they finally fix them, they got rid of factions that were the main reason alot of regulars went there. terrible site now

It's the videos that insist I've already watched them that annoy me, it just jumps to the replay button every time I try playing them.

I stopped visiting it once it stopped letting me easily download videos in Safari.

That and all the ads.

I only ever went there to download Angry Video Game Nerd videos and now since he's stopped making videos, more or less I've really no reason to go there.
If they won't sell it to you, it isn't piracy.
