Again, why is this the fault of the UI design? How fast things load isn't a function of the UI, is it?

It sure as shit is. Good UI is RESPONSIVE. If your UI doesn't have to load thumbnails, it's gonna be faster.

I totally agree that UI needs to be responsive. And my guess is that it's not responsive because it ties into a live game. It takes time to load not because it has to load a thumbnail image or even a guardian, it takes time because it has to ping a server to figure out what thumbnails and equipment on a guardian it has to load. They should have some sort of caching that is done locally to store what you "currently have"

I don't know though because I don't know how their system works.
