Best part is that there were a few threads during the flight by color blind people that said the system wasnt as helpful as red and blue, wish they would just let you have RvB as an option.This seems false, point me to these threads where colorblind people said this
- here is one
- here is another
- here is a guy saying he found a color that works "alright" but would rather outlines not be there
took all of two seconds to search "outline colorblind", the outline system is intended to sell microtransactions and is using the color blind reason as an excuse. there are so many more ways they could have done this to help color blind people without getting rid of team colors
from what i have seen (note i am not color blind so this may be false when it comes to how color blind colors change) the reason why red vs blue is nice is because "Yellow-blue colourblind people see RvB as Red vs Cyan. Green-red colourblind people see RvB as Gold vs Blue. Only people with monochromatic blindness (full colourblindness) can't see RvB at all" so no matter what there was still a difference and for monochromatic folks they could have made a "heightened contrast" mode where it lets them change how dark and light the team colors were.
also the argument that "it lets me show off my spartan" makes no sense because no one is going to look at your coating, they will see outline shoot till dead and move on. no one wants the be the dude that costed his team the game because he was staring at dead bodies all match. they will wait till after or before match lobby where your colors would have been on display anyways..
