Please consider changing the color on the in game league chat to something besides RED. No one can read it, and it's important information pertaining to the game. Should be an easy fix. Change it to bright orange if you like. Just dump that deep dark lights out red. 


Thank you.

I can read it fine, and haven't heard of anyone else having problems.  Maybe there's something wrong with your screen contrast.

Look. You ask the PLAYERS to give THEIR opinions and I gave mine. I also spoke with ten others while the Beacon exchange was going on in our Teamspeak and NONE of us can read it. So it is a valid issue. Stop putting down the suggestions we give to make the game easier and better for US. You are a moderator, and can pass the information along for us. I am a player that spends money on this game and would like to be able to see the information about beacons in the chat without squinting. And I am sure that if I and my ten league mates who all agreed that we can't read the information, then many many others can't either. Just pass along the request as you should do for us. Thanks in advance.

Ohhh, while we are talking colours. There is a significant number of (predominantly male) people with red/green problems, but if you actually dig into that you might find that actual trouble can be yellow/green. Beacon map colours on predominantly green background colours less than optimal. (Can discern, need to concentrate, headache inducing. Not making that up.)

Actually that's not my job, my job is to enforce forum rules.  Mods don't have any more access to the game developers than anyone else does.   If you wish to make a suggestion you should do so in the suggestions thread, that is where the developers look for player suggestions.

Sorry if you have misunderstood but the CMs have meeting with the Devs and we pass specific feedback from us to the Devs via CMs. I hope it is clear now on the access part and also the part that is highlighted in Bio's post above that all of us have equal access to Devs.

I think this thread refers to Embassy News shown in chat, not League chat specifically.

I always have problems trying to read it so often switch it off
Choosing a different colour would make the game more user friendly





I would also like to see a different option to switch off beacon upgrades, but leave beacon attacks visible

Why use different colours in chat to those shown within the embassy?

So typical that OTHER games do not have such severe problems - http://prntscr.com/dwdw17

Thank you. 
What color do you think would be convenient for everyone?

Theres nothing wrong with the League Chat, it is white and easily read. The Regional Chat is in red and can be difficult to read at times. I would suggest yellow as a better option.

i think it looks so good in Red, color of blood, keeps the sharks to come out. I think color is appropriate as per the activity. Maybe having a different color for upgrade would help.

Have no problem reading the red chat. 

Can't figure what issues you guys are having but like someone said already, maybe adjust your screen options.

Nice to see such an important issue get such a positive and immediate CM response 

Everyone has a right to an opinion. No one has a right to their opinion being respected by other if it can't be backed up with rational and logic explanation

The illegible red chat is only shown on selected embassy news items (marked as Council)

Normal chat from all players is always shown in white - regional and league chat are identical

Use the cog wheel to switch off the spam
