I've tested positive for colorblindness on every test I've ever taken but I must be some strange type because I've never noticed it affect me in everyday life. I have no problem telling the difference between the friendly and enemy health bars for some reason.

This is huge for everyone that does have a problem, though. And this is just further evidence that Riot knows the right way to run their business.

Thank you... OMG been waiting for this forever. In group battles especially, it's just a wash and I can't tell who is who.

Being chromatically colorblind and having been playinig games for umpteen years, colorblind modes are interesting to see evolve.

I remember Ultima tried it, and it only changed your character... that made it okay to solo, but other than that... not so hot.

Everquest had one, and it only changed the way that the items showed up in your inventory.

WoW, like Everquest, only wrote out "epic" and "uncommon" when you mousover the item on your character/in your inventory. I remember reading something a ways back that they were going to implement a colorblind mode that effects gameplay, but I've yet to see that...

This is one of the first steps I've seen to show both enemy and ally gameplay effects change with activation of "colorblind" mode, with possibly the first being WoW stating what they were doing, but I've yet to see it in-game.

Seeing only shades of grey, only drastic effects count, which is basically what I see with the blue, dark, and yellow, light, used from RIOT, here, so thank you, in advance, for doing something to actually help me play this game.

The only thing I can add, or hope that you do, change the healthbars... the colors you use are the same to me, and probably others... if the friendly one was darker, and the enemy one lighter, it'd make the world of difference. It makes it quite hard to tell the difference from a toon wiht the same skin being enemy or friend, when 2 are on the map.


Anywho, thanks for the steps you've taken, thusfar.
