    His screenshots don't really prove his own point either. We are much, much better at detection motion than fine background details. And in arena shooters no one ever stands without moving because of the map control elements. So situations like his screenshots, where you'd have to look for a small 3d char that takes some effort to be distinguished from the wall never happen. Screenshots are static. In game, that character would be moving, which is highly triggering our reptilian brain and making it feel very, very distinct from the wall.

    Just like how you might never notice a small spider that's chilling out on your wall, but you ALWAYS notice things like flies constantly moving around.

    If you need character silhouettes because you feel it's an effort to distinguish players in games like Quake 3, you've got brain damage buddy, get it checked out because not being able to lock onto moving objects is the exception, not the norm. Alternatively you could just kill yourself or at least avoid reproducing as you're clearly a defective individual.

    That's why it's been played for such a long time with almost no detail textures and super visible models.
    And not like I put a screenshot of a spot where you sometimes sit waiting for that armor or delaying the timer. Someone sitting in that spot NEVER happens.

    Got it, another guy that shot some bots or played some ffa and "knows" Q3 or action fps in general.

    Wow, you're such a cyber athlete. If you need ""high visibility" garbage to play well then you are a shitter and should consider suicide.

    Original UT actually had very high visibility when it came to characters. Many player models had stripes of color over them which were almost toxic compared to backgrounds on map. Maps in UT had fairly drab palettes or dim lighting. When you were dueling against someone with your shock rifle or some other weapon it was easy to see them. Remember those white skinned dudes and gals with flashy armor?
    In team matches, there were red and blue teams, and everyone had bright spots of their team color over their uniforms.
    One other thing was that 99% of weapons in UT were projectile based or had some tracing effect, and/or splash damage, so aside from sniper rifle you could just shoot into enemy direction and hit, and it was easy to trace enemy when he shot weapons with these effects.

    ...it doesn't make Overwatch visual style less shit however. These cartoony blizzard dolls over pastoral cartoony landscapes, I'd love to twist their little necks and see them snap.
    They could probably get better visibility by putting cartoony characters over more realistic and darker levels instead of making them fight in blooming sakura gardens.

    I just want to cum on her biceps. It's what got me interested in the game in the first place, too bad they decided to charge a fortune for it.

    Indeed. It's specially ridiculous considering the other Blizzard stuff has adjusted prices.

    Legacy of the Void - $39.99 -> R$99.90
    Legion - $49.99 -> R$129.00
    Overwatch - $59.99 -> R$249.99

    w0t

    it does lend credibility to the theory that they want to milk this retail as much as possible then go F2P.

    Hardly. This is a feature they came up with to patch up bad design.

    The trailer doesn't even make sense because the heroes are fighting... each other... not any generic bad guys.
