I have to agree. The game brings a lot of new features but the core isn't quite there, I really hope they reconsider and balance it to be more like the previous game. Since it's a beta I will play until release and then decide.
I couldn't see the icon for the commander so I had to use the map to look in the right direction before I could see the white tinted icon.
Add it to the options menu, so you can change the colors of all icons to what you want, this is also good for people with color vision deficiencies.
I managed to get better AA by overriding the settings in engine.ini
