Tuna Bandit.3786 Posted November 20, 2019 Share Posted November 20, 2019 Warning: Edited post to make it less hostile and more explanatory as rightfully suggested by some.The new map, has during storyline and during snowstorm an affect on the interface that makes me want to turn off my screen.It makes the game completely and utterly unplayable for me.Arenanet, now that I calmed down, I will ask politely: Why are you deliberately making playing the game impossible?The ice effect is too much, WAY too much. It makes me wanna TP out of the map on the spot.Once you hit half or more of a freezing stack, I cannot see anything anymore, No Enemy tags, no information inworld at all. I can only somewhat see the minimap and chat. That is it.It is as playing with your eyes closed.I have a vision issue and am colorblind.This freezing effect on screen is blinding to me. Even with the screen fully turned down on brightness.From what I hear I am not the only one struggling, so please consider us and put in an option that can tone down or turn off that screen effect, similar to the ability to turn off the shaking of the camera.As suggested, edited in here, one of my follow-up posts:My colorblindness is mostly red/green combinations. But not the only ones.The sensitivity has to do with white/bright light. For example, I cannot read this forum on it's default. Got software that allows me to change over the colors on a browser because default black letters on white is very hard for me. Reversed is much easier.I am one of those using a filter when driving at night, and avoid it if I have to due to blinding lights of opposite traffic.The reason I started this, has to do with the ability to have the option.By no means do I want this to be completely removed. I don't want to mess with the immersiveness when it's enjoyed by so many. And quite honestly, I enjoy it too in other situations.The Dry Top example is a great one, I have no problem with the sandstorm at all. It's not white.Nor do I have any issues with blackening of the edges or the red (despite it being one of the main colors of my issue with colorblindness)We have an option for example that allows us to disable camera shaking to prevent some people from getting motion sick.For those enjoying that form of immersion, nothing changed.So why not with these kind of effects?Option to help some of us, without breaking the game for others. That's all I propose here. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
