Color Coding

  1. Helpful

  2. Nah, that's just silly

    Couple of things I run into quite an awful lot and I've heard others with the same problem.

    When in the jobs tab I am constantly hitting the recruit link or joining a raid boss thinking it's a regular boss when in a rush for that little extra xp to level up.

    We also kill our eyes in BA (yeah I know it's completely different now anyway)

    We see Faction Enemy in an orange/red
    we see Faction Member in a bluish

    Could we maybe use some of the color coding in these links to help our brains catch it is something different?
    Like Recruit in green
    Regular boss in the orange
    raid boss in blue

    or some such?

    And in b.a. perhaps the lines could be in a lighter gray vs the black. So we don't have to take so much time looking for where we were?

    10 From me, it's been mentioned several times, don't think had own thread though. Should be for all games.

    A wonderful idea and seems simple enough. The only thing might be what color goes where...I am in agreement with the above.

    I think we can squeak this one in :)

    Placing it in "under review" for now; we'll play around with a few UI options and get back to you guys.

    Yes, I discussed simply adding in different colors, but we are worried about legibility, especially across a wide array of devices and monitors. We'll make it very obvious what type of link is what, though.

    i actually like this idea a lot, which means that it probably won't happen.

    I like this idea, too. Most colors seem to have a good contrast on a black background. I would think this wouldn't be too much of a problem on all devices, although I only play from a computer, not a phone or a tablet, so I can't say for sure.

    HAHAHA gogolak.

    I much prefer to glance and go. Stopping to read is a pain in the rear when it's same thing different names.

    Hoping we will see something soon.

    Even if readibilty is an issue, could just code the [recruit] or [boss] or [rb]

    Could use colors that you already use for enemies and factions.

    That being said.....I've played on just about every device you can play on. Colors have never been an issue. Generally speaking we learn quickly what is what so we attack when we see red. stop when we see green or blue etc.

    Basically yeah we are Pavlo's dog. you've got us well trained.

    Game is dead since everyone dumping every iota of stuff into rb's so stalking forums ;)

    you guessed it. Hit the delay in the game so I'm all over the forums for something to do.

    Added 2 more folks by accident. Any word on a simple color code?

    My guess would be in a year or two, so it's right around the corner.
