Why does Chaos Bolt look worse than before?

Warlock
The new particle graphics of the spell look good but the way it travels is just awful. The tail end of the spell is so stiff that if the enemy strafes left or right quickly the end of the bolt jerks one way or the other without a fluid curve like it used to.

Example of how bad it is now: https://i.imgur.com/0DoSmsq.gif

Also with the new graphic it looks like the tail starts too close to the caster (like they're blasting themselves in the face with the afterburn.) and doesn't "grow" properly. Just some input from a once avid Destro main.
you're making me tear up watching the old chaosbolt. I want it back dang it.

lol, you and me both.
Don't get me wrong, I like almost all of the new warlock effects, but new Chaos Bolt and Demon Bolt are so damned ugly.
man...reminds me of WoD beta when charred remians + fire and brimstone chaos bolt sent an individual chaos bolt to every single enemy it was going to hit, it was great.

Charre Remains was a cancer playstyle

I actually like the new chaos bolt. I prefer the the one that we had in MoP with mini chaos bolts circle around the Main chaos bolt like electrons. however, i always wonder why the dragon in a warlock spell, something was wrong with that.

we're definitely gonna have to agree to disagree on that one, friend. I definitely preferred having a reaction based playstyle over basically set rotations. legion/bfa warlocks just feel meh.
Charred Remains was the go to PvP talent. Was nice having a reliable self heal that wasn't drain life
Ive never paid attention but god that curve is gonna bug me forever, thanks bro
It also took like 3 seconds to hit something 30 yards away. I like speedy CB.
GLYPH FOR OLD CHAOS BOLT OR RIOTTTTT
Yes old chaos bolt was way better instead of this green flash.

I apologize my dear Haunter, (nice to see you posting again) but you are objectively incorrect.
I don't play destro but I like the new chaos bolt. Feels more chaos and less dragon
