Something that is a serious issue - this map is literally unplayable for people with colourblindness like me. Or at least, the sort of colour blindness I have, which is red-green colour deficiency. Can't even make out most skillshots over the blindingly bright snow. And thus, I guess I will not be playing League of Legends until this is durastically changed/removed : /

ALSO nobody's mentioned that you can't read the chat box well. White on white? Derp?

I doubt riot plans for "colorblind" people, seeing as how they arent a super large portion of the player base.

And the chat box has an opaque filter via a small slider to make it white/black DERP.

You know that eight percent of men have colour-blindness, right? That's a pretty ****ing huge minority. As seen by the fact that there are several colour-blind mods for this game for the ****ty team colour choices, and other online games have a colour-blind mode. And I don't NEED any of these, because my colour-blindness is incredibly mild. Which is why it's shockingly disorienting to play this map, it's just WAY too bright, and all one colour.

That said, black is... not optimal, imo. I don't feel I should have to compensate for this dumb seasonal map. Make it optional if it has to stay unchanged.

EDIT: Oh wait, you meant the backdrop? Jesus that's useless. Pass.

Backdrop helps me see the white text on the white snow. And I dont mean to offend but I doubt they were thinking "The 8% of colorblind people might have a problem with this temporary map"

If you want to play but cant on the winter you can play custom games, dominion, twisted treeline. At least until they fix the map for the 8%.

Actually just looking at the forums I'm 100% confident Riot will deal with this by the next patch, so yeah, not too worried. I'll just wait it out.

I have a sneaking suspicion you are correct. You, sir, have assassinated my optimism.

the brightness of the map is often
it makes so many champ skins pop
its not like the map comes up so often as to actually be an issue

This is a problem that quite a few people are having and it depends greatly on the sensitivity of your eyes, not adjust any in game or computer screen setting, I HAVE TRIED THEM ALL.

Here are links to similar threads about the same issue, we all need to support each other in order to have some type of resolution.
