Please give us server side and client side ability to turn off DLC. Personally I hate them and the barbarians, ugh… having issues telling them apart, and Santa barbarian… ugh… so much fail… IT only matters to those that buy it. The rest of us really dont care to see the crap.
Wrong. It matters a lot
The most important point of DLC in a multiplayer game, the only real reason to use it as opposed to clientside mods, is that you can FORCE other players to see it too. They have to look at your shiny awesome armor and superb sword of slaying as you stab them with it.
If you couldn’t force your victims (and allies) to see your gear, there’d be little point in having cosmetic gear at all.
if these things cause problems with telling teams apart, that’s something developers should fix. but an option to disable them is not likely to happen, and implementing it would negatively impact sales.
