Well I to go directly to
https://screeps.com/ when I login to my web browser. That is what is saved as one of my most visited sites. I would click on docs if I need to see the API, status if stuff was broken, or click on world if I needed to go into the game.
Regardless if it is a landing page, a homepage, or an art project it is used as a portal to multiple sources of information for multiple people. For some that functionality has been impaired by the recent changes. Going to
https://screeps.com/a/ would indeed still get me the info I need, but I do not always want to load into the game world. It takes longer to load(much longer if "units" are displayed), and I highly doubt it will actually load if the servers are having an issue.
This game requires MANY resources to properly play that are outside of the actual game client and world, having a proper portal to access those resources would be greatly appreciated.
