Banners Event: Just out of curiosity...


Recommended Posts

The Halloween Banners event: Just out of curiosity, how do our colorblind players adapt to this?  4 colors, randomly place on the map, and folks shouting out in chat the destinations based on color.  I've heard that elsewhere different shade/grayscale is sometimes used, but these four colors appear the same shade, and there's no prominent background patterns like stripes or dots.  Of course, we'd probably not think to be yelling out "green polkadot" either.

Good question! Coordination is key during this event, colorblindness withstanding. I'd recommend asking for a set of /loc coordinates tied to a bind using /thumbtack x z y if attempting to coordinate.

I just follow the people on my team, and since my wife is on that team she tells me.

On torch our league leader has someone designated as incan teleport for each color.  We spread out initially between the 4 to make the banners vulnerable and then accept teleport to each of the banners. 

 

If its helpful they are always in the same order on the compass.  From left to right its...

 

Red --> Blue --> Green --> Purple

 

And you can click them on the compass to get a nav pointer to their location.
