So then the question is why? Why is it that certain people can, at a glance and in the heat of combat, be able to register whether someone is the adversary and certain others can’t? What is keeping them from ever learning? Again, is it color-blindness?
The fact remains that it is possible and I’m testifying that I personally was able to tell immediately without so much as 15 minutes of playing the beta. Others have claimed the same. So then why is it that I can be immediately aware and others can’t. All I know is that I find it extremely easy, natural, and intuitive given the colors TBS has designated to either team.
If someone comes out and says that they are unable to react to a weapon that has a .8 second windup do you change it? What they’re saying could be 100% true, maybe they can’t react. But then you have others that say they can easily react. They say just practice a bit more and get used to it, you’ll learn it soon enough. Do you think TBS given feedback on both sides should change the windup? I kind of feel like this is a similar situation where it is proven humanly possible to easily distinguish a few basic color schemes from one another but there are some that say they can’t.
I couldn’t tell you why some people have more trouble than others. I won’t speak for them.
Like I said in my previous post, I don’t really have trouble with it. Nonetheless I would rather eliminate any possibility of error given the choice. I feel that disabling customisation would reduce the possibility of mistaking friend/foe whilst with customisation the possibility of mistaking is marginally increased. It’s marginal, but there you go.
(I’m not saying you do but…) If you want to argue that being able to determine friend/foe at a glance through the ‘adversity’ of customisation is a particular skill that should be rewarded then that’s another argument. I don’t think TB wants that to be the case, and I can’t say I would find it particularly fun either.
Why do you care why people want the option if you don’t mind?! You saying “I don’t mind anyway but… you’re wrong!” is the only reason this topic isn’t finished with.
