I am a colorblind gamer. I often have a difficult time distinguishing between a team mate and the enemy team since both red and blue have a similar value to me. Because of this I often betray my team mates on accident. So I thought it would be a great idea if 343 could create a playlist for colorblind gamers that had two totally different teams: WHITES vs BLACKS.
Simple idea really. You’ve got a white team and a black team. No room for confusion with such a huge contrast in colors unlike red and blue, which look very similar to somebody like me. I mean, sometimes I can tell the difference, but the value in Reach is confusing.
If I am on the white team and I see a black person stealing my warthog, I wouldn’t hesitate to shoot him, whereas in regular red vs blue, it would take ma few seconds to tell who is who, then I either end up betraying my team mate, or getting run over by the enemy. If I am on the black team, and I see a white dude carrying the flag, I would shoot him instantly, no more hesitation!
Or sometimes I will be driving a warthog and I will try to pick up somebody who I think is a team mate, only to be hijacked. If I am on the white team, I will definitly not stop for any black players and hopefully I will run them over. Same thing goes if I am on the black team. If I am on the black team, I will be able to tell that the white person in the vehicle is on the other team then I can hijack it. I think this would be a great thing to do for us colorblind gamers Bungie! What do you guys think?
