Wish you could choose a color setup depending on the team you land on. I keep forgetting whether I’m red or blue now.

Not to mention having teammates with red dyes while being in blue team is kinda annoying.

But overall, nice change

Apologies, this feature wasn’t suppose to go out in today’s patch. This was intended to come out with the next patch along with a UI drop down to change how you want team colors to work. The new default setting is WvW style coloring (enemy only has team colors), but you will also be able to make everyone, or nobody team-colored. There will also be UI changes to reinforce what team you’re currently on, so hold tight, apologies again!

Awesome stuffz Evan, like this a lot. Since the old (old-new? current?) system just renders dyes useless for PvP players! A bit funny though that something like this just “happened” to get in with the patch, kind of wonders how much of a stress you guys are under.
Hey, atleast now you know that it works! Let’s just hope that the UI implementations work smoothly as well

While we are talking about these “smaller” tweaks to the system that the community are requesting, could we please “happen” to get a new glory point reward system as well? Would be much appreciated by all team/support players out there!

Please tell them NOT to hotfix it though. We can tolerate the minor confusion until the patch comes with a UI update.

No worries, it’s not tough to check which team you’re on and it’s a welcome addition to the fashion show aspect of PvP.

Gonna agree with people wanting you to leave it in. It will just be too kitten horrible to have to go back to the ugly team colors after experiencing this change.
And the whole “confusion” with what team you are on must be trolling..For crying out loud, you have huge banners at your spawn colored in your team color. Throw one eye at those when you enter the game/spawn and just dedicate 1 brain cell to remember it, done!

When can we expect the option to recolor? It’s not really enjoyable to play hot-join now. Anyone who says to just remember your flag color at start clearly doesn’t play enough hot-join games. Games are short, and with auto balance you’re never one specific color for much time, so keeping track of this is extremely annoying, especially for people who care about objectives.

I’m disappointed that this won’t be hot fixed.

I agree with Shaolin, in the heat of battle I have difficulty keeping track of something as simple as which color team I’m currently on (which does change), and have been having a hard time getting used to using the scoreboard to do so.

I would have preferred the development team prioritized bug fixes such as the loading screen hang after respawn in spvp. This affects game-play for some of us, and while it’s only my opinion, I value game-play over fashion in combat.

This totally threw me off during the first sPvP game I played after the patch, since I had no idea going into it that anything was changed.

In part because my own armor was dyed blue, I spent a significant portion of the game thinking I was on blue when I was on red. Then I capped a contested point and it turned red and I couldn’t figure out what was going on. I thought it must be some bug or something. It made me feel pretty stupid.

im with shaolin and ant.

at least give us a option to turn the old colour system on for tournaments, i couldnt care less about colours on tournaments, anything that confuse you even for split of second is a major thing.

having red guys play on blue team and blue guys on red team is just strange.

this are the things that make me wonder about how serious are arenanet pvp team. change colours really? with so many and many things to change/improve why are you losing your time with this?

tournaments guys will still mainly use the old colour system (if is available) , this is mainly to please hot join guys.

as it is now is just confused and pretty useless, if i could choose previous what colour scheme mny team have that will be great. for example:

i enter tournament and my team already choose a colour set for red team and blue team, so if we will be blue team we going use blue/white/xxx colour and if we go red we will use red/white/xxxx.

couldnt care less about this change, for me is a negative change as it is now, with improvements in future im sure will be great now my team will just spend time to completly paint ar,our before each tournament match

1. Look at the banners at the spawn.
2. Look at spawn cap color when you cap it.
3. Attack the red names plates, not the green ones.
4. Play an FPS for a couple hours.
5. If you for some reason go back to spawn without dying in Hot Join guess what? Your color probably changed due to autobalance. Repeat step(s) 1 (through 5 if need be).

There are TWO colors in PvP and more than one way to tell what color you are. It isn’t Rocket Surgery to try and figure out what color you and your team is. Quit making it complicated.

If people have a hard time determining which team they are on, they must really have a hard time reading opponent spells and dodging attacks. Honestly… it is pretty kittening easy to know what team you’re on.

One thing I have learned in MMOs is that when anything is nerfed, there will always be people who complain about it. I’ve even seen some people explicitly make the ludicrous claim that nothing should ever be nerfed. Now, anyway, class balance really has anything to do with this topic. I’m sure there are plenty of threads about it elsewhere.

I really don’t want to go off-topic here, but ya, I saw many people in the SWTOR forums stating “Bioware says they will never nerf classes for PvP reasons and that’s how it should be. Balance should never be tweaked, only learned to be dealt with.” First, I don’t know if Bioware ever actually vomited out that sentence, but players thinking that was a good idea really amuse me.

What I would like is an option to always make the enemy team the same color. It shouldn’t be Red vs Blue—it should be Us vs Them, and Them is always Red (or some other color). We’re already seeing different things from the enemy in WvW, so it shouldn’t be any problem. In WvW, we should also have a consistent color for our server and two consistent colors for the enemy servers. Having to re-learn how to read the map every week is an annoyance, especially when you’re red, because enemy player names are still red, and that causes cognitive dissonance.

It’s always been that way for me. I play on Linux so the graphics can act weird with colors.

If I dyed my armor, unless I zoomed in completely, the old dye would still appear until I load. The same applied to my sPvP team colors where I’d only see them when zoomed in.
