Just noticed that you've got red and green beams for friendly and enemy beacons.

As some of your fanbase has already expressed that colorblindness is an issue, is there any way to add some other type of indicator. Since I noticed that they're red and green, clearly it's not for me.

I was just curious if you've got some sort of plan in mind for this. Maybe R&G aren't the final colors, or alternate symbols (an exclamation mark ring around beacons that aren't yours), something to consider.

Thanks! Dominion looks awesome, and I'd hate to see the RG colorblind people struggle through this awesome game mode!

YES I can't tell the diff between red and green PLEASE make a colorblind option to switch to white and black or blue and red, something that is easily definable.

On the minimap I noticed that team-controlled points were green circles, and enemy controlled points were red hexagons.

they should make sure to have other visual cues to tell the difference between friendly and enemy besides colors

This is a good way on the actual map too. A full circle light border = yours, a hexagon light border = theirs.

That is a good way to distinguish. If the tower you're near has lines, bad. if it's rounded, good!

Excellent spot there, I missed that completely.

Easily solved by the aforementioned shapes around friendly/enemy controlled bases. Also, if the base has enemies and no allies you can safely assume that its not yours and you should gtfo before you melt in their hands. Not to mention the fog of war will cloud out anything that isn't under your control.

Just a quick question about red/green colorblind. How do you drive?

I might be wrong...but I think you can always see all the capture points and everything in that outer ring.

That just seems a bit confusing to me at least. Has it ever caused any problems or is the positions of the lights enough of a notification?
