I was a BFD Fan from the beginning and own BFD 1, 2, 3 and lots of Expansion Packs and used them on all of my Songs. I had to upgrade to 3 because of AAX.
At first (like so often) i was exited about the new GUI look, but after a while i thought "why all these changes" everything has a new name, is located somewhere else, the BFD2 Presets didn't import right, the Keyset was different and the Mixer was too complicated. I really started missing my old BFD 2, but couldn't use it in Pro Tools 11. Maybe I'm old, but I want a good thing to stay good!
So now, with a sad Eye, i tried something else: Superior Drummer 2. And funny, the good feeling is back again, without ever looking at the Manual, i found everything i need, and now I'm flying again.
So it's bye bye BFD3 for me. Does anyone else have the same experience?

At first I really missed the drum kit images, which were replaced by those blueish outlined drumkit things . . .
. . . but most of the user interface changes are a great improvement in workflow, as "jord" has stated - - it is generally faster to get things done.
The groove section is a vast improvement, very well done, I use this a lot, and really like the updated changes.
From BFD2 to BFD3 the midi mapping went through a huge change, which I cursed out loud many times, but eventually recognized that there are more articulations represented in the new changes, and now I appreciate those changes.
"BFD3 Pop 110bpm JM kit" works in a spectacular way for the pop based songs I'm working on right now.
The Mixer is better, the Effects section is better, resizable VST user interface, kits load faster . . . come on, they've really made some great changes.

I might challenge you on that statement, try loading a cowbell, or other percussion instrument and explain to me how seeing your cowbell as a Cymbal is better than what BFD2 did? (showed it as a cowbell image that is). There needs to be a percussion object/frame.
