Traffic lights are clear enough to differentiate the red and green in my experience. Riot's red and green on the other hand....

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!
The capture points shoot at you (Unless you're channeling to capture) if they're unfriendly to you

You shouldn't be handicapped because you are colorblind though...

Where did the Red post go?

On another note. 5 bucks down for the poor colorblind folks getting screwed again. Sucks for my buddy but its gonna be funny watching him retreat to a enemy tower.

Riot's red and green are not made to be specifically visible, they are often made with gloss/prettiness in mind. I am personally color blind partially, it is certainly an aspect of LoL that I wish had an option for a quick fix.

I agree 100% with you bro in the same boat, may i suggest to any Riot staff out there reading this, that they should consider a blue(good) and red(bad)? like in the stradegy games like old age of empires. or for those that see only black and white a black and white option?

I think they such include graphical changes as well, maybe making the Green & Red "objectives" differentiate from each other. Making either or, look sinister and evil while the other one looks peaceful and heavenly.

On the minimap at least, red/green points also have different shapes. At the very least you will always be able to look at the minimap to know which type it is.
