I noticed some modifications to the battle interface in the last update.
Big improvement: visibility of the amount of shield and armour a monster has left. Thank you, this is very helpful!
Not much of an improvement: all monsters seem to get a muscle spasm from excitement when it's finally their turn to do something. I could do with less animations, not more. In PVP I need to finish my battles quickly before I get attacked myself. Seeing my Reptie twerk before doing something is not helping. :)
