The circle around you in Team

Dafuq is this? I mean, everybody can recognize hot/ coool colour, so for what is this piece of sh*t? Its really annoying and i havent met anybody who likes it.  The worst part of it is a switch.. u cant recognize your colour quickly enough, cause there is this ***** circle! U cant even go rightly through gaps, because the circle obstructs. Remove it please, or at least make it adjustable in settings.

Lol, I am sorry We will make it much smaller. It was more or less a test to see if it was easier to find your team mates. What do others think of it?

i agree with Marty

Like i said, everybody i have met is complaining about it. Im usually playing yellow and when there is a switch, i always think im orange, because u cant recognize yellow from orange so quickly. Try to do it youself as yellow. Its rly hard. Same with blue/light blue.. I think there is no need to make any feature for recgnizing a team. Everybody watches colours anyways.

I have got the solution but it is maybe hard to make:

ur own line is just normal ( without the circle ) and youre teammates got the circle,

Shortly: All players see their own normal line but they see the teammates with circle. ( like u see youre buttons at start of round but u dont see the other players their controls )

complaining about something what made the game worse is being a kid. Logic.  Before calling someone a kid, go improve your skills please, 1200 rank is really bad.  Btw Wargasm is so mature name and referring to your picture, you are a virgin.

I still think you are the guy who is really bad, since you whine that the cause of death in a team game is this little circle. I have to say that i don't have any problems with going trough gaps with this circle.

So ur basicaly saying, that u cant recognize colors and playing with circle is better than without it right? Ur probably only one who likes it. The circle makes game more chaotic and confused. And thats opinion of most players ive met in games. Even a lot of high ranked players dont like it.

Thank you all for sharing your opinions about the test we did with showing team colours better.

Salietje came up with a suggestion that is very interesting, whereby only your teammates gain such a circle so you can recognise them.

Don't talk bullshit, i never said anything about not recognizing colors. Also, who said high ranked players their opinion count more then an average player of 1000 points? I believe it's helping alot to recognize your team for new players and for skilled players when they don't concentrate enough on their team colors. This circle makes it a lot easier for your brains ;)

I'm not a fan of the current circles either (on every player). It's especially annoying with the color change power up and even more so when you're one of the greens which are already hard to distinguish without the circles.

However the suggestion of adding the circle only to your teammates (and not yourself) is very good. It'll only mark the 'good guys' and not disturb your own gameplay.

There was a test while back where the tails had the teamcolor (only the heads still in the player's color) which i liked. Maybe that approach can be improved by making the tails a color <i>between</i> the team color and the player's color? Should be possible to calculate some kind of arithmetic middle.

Regardless of what option(s) you implement, it would be nice if each player could choose what he wants to see individually.

€: and please stop the cockfight guys, you're only embarassing yourselves.

It's called a discussion, so don't try to be the smart and mature guy who knows everything.

 

Just make the enemy team 1 color in the eyes of your team, so you still see your own team as how you see it now. 

Let's say team cool is blue and team hot is shown red. This will be better then those rings, since this will be a lot easier to differentiate the teams. It will fix the colorblind problem too!

yeah, so your team is red, yellow, pink, orange. and the other team is all blue.

This is a topic related bug I noticed so I guess this doesn't deserve a new tread (beside, I haven't searched the forums thorough enough to be certain it hasn't been posted before).

Some boni I pick up (not sure which, or a combo of which. I'll hopefully notice next time I play which are causing it) make the ' team-indicator' disappear and just fill that space up with my own snakes colour, making my snake's head bigger than the line it acutally makes. Don't know if anyone else has noticed this, and if it's just me
