Glowing Borders

Hey everyone,

The permanent open borders in cf3 definitely decreased the amount of camping in the game. And it's a good idea that markers were introduced at the borders of the field, it gives the player more control, since it is easier to see where your snake will emerge when "entering" a border.

However I feel like even more controllability could be given to the player by displaying a slight glow in the color of your snake at the point of the border where your snake is about to emerge. This glow would obviously only be displayed whenever your snake is close to a border. It is furthermore only visible to you and not to other players.

Its therefore just a measure to increase controllability, which, I think is the essence of this game: easy to understand, easy to control, impossible to master.

What do you think?

Well I think if it's visible to you then it should be visible for others too, it's less complicated and more fair. But I like the idea!

I don't see how it would be less complicated and more fair then, since it is the same for everyone, but yes, we could also think about making it visible for everyone.

Two things come to mind though:

1. Surprise attacks through the border become harder, since your opponent gets a warning.

2. It might be confusing if too many glowing spots are displayed at the same time.

In the same way that it gets harder because they get a warning, it gets easier for the attacker if you know where you are coming through the wall and they don't. That's why I mentioned it. I guess it doesn't matter which way it works.

Top idea though! I really like it :D
