I agree that after being used to seeing it a certain way for a long time, it was initially jarring. That being said, if you look at it from the point of view of visually connecting blackspace exploration to regeneration, when tiles are wasted the new animation of tiles shattering into dust instead of turning into flying orbs really conveys the waste aspect. As a visual method of instruction as well as a reminder that exploration is being wasted, I think it's a big step forward.
