Girl Gamer Shows Me Why I Suck At PvP (Colour Blindness)

I am SOOOOOO wanting to cry now. This girl seriously prods buttock. I wish I was 1/10 as good. It's those golden gun kills... Oh and I know for sure why I suck... I can't see red right, so the radar is useless to me. COME ON BUNGIE, COLOR BLIND OPTION! [b]Edit: Changed title as it was misleading.[/b] If you want to see if you are also suffering from colour blindness then you can take a quick online test. http://www.color-blindness.com/ishihara_cvd_test/ishihara_cvd_test.html?iframe=true&width=500&height=428

  • That chick was using an autorifle 90% of the time. In this game, those things are laser cannons and all you need to do is jump and strafe while mag dumping and you'll killed half of the enemy team before you need to reload. There's a better test for color deficiency and blindness. Takes longer, but it's more detailed.

    • Shouldn't the title simply be "other gamer shows me why I suck at PvP"? The fact that its a girl playing isn't really relevant. 52 kills is 52 kills.

        • What a babbling hole.... honestly if you didnt know any of that information from previous video game experience.... where have you been... that being said.. she rekt'd... is really good.. and so on... just unbearable to listen to... Now onto the point of the thread.... it is without any hesitation that i say they allow for a radar adjustment... few other things affected by this is when you are hit the screen rings in red....either blocking radar visually (might be intentional) and or for those with color blindness can cause confusion.... I'm not color blind but I have audio visual sensory issues... also known as Synesthetic or Synethesia ..... certain tones cause visual stimuli which can affect things... also seeing things in patterns.... so any differentiation will help me.... I've purchased Gunnar amber tinted glasses... it helps a lot by the way... with reds and warm colors when I play... also reducing headaches from other issues.. not an ad.. just an offer

              • That gal just reinforced why the auto-rifle was juuust a bit too accurate for the bullets it spat out. She was good, but it's still that weapon folks have been complaining about it for a while.

                  • Why does everyone reply avoiding the point of the thread lmao. As a non color blind i agree the radar should have options coded in for other shades, it doesnt seem like a difficult thing to have an option setting for it offering the inside as red green white blue to help as many people be on a level field as possible.

                    • Color Blind Option: I would rather have it where players can simply customize all their HUD colors to their desire. Want a red HP bar that goes white when your low? Sure! Want a green radar with purple enemy dots? Sure!

                      I'm fortunate enough to only have partial red/green color blindness but +1 Honestly feel like the radar should have been blue. Blue colorblind is much rarer.

                      • I took the test and it seems my color-blindness is pretty much non-existent. I only had trouble with the ones that didn't look like numbers and looked more like a jumbled mess. The lines were pretty easy and the other numbers were easy as well. Anyone notice a few of the numbers were impossible to make out?

                            • OK... For those of you who do not know how to read or can read but not comprehend the reason for me posting this ISN'T anything to do with girls being better than boys... it's the fact that I came across a girl who was kicking ass and then she explained that the radar in the game glows to show which direction the enemy is coming from which was why she was doing so well. Unfortunately, those with red/green colour blindness (Deuteranopia) cannot see red very well and hence the darned thing is VERY hard to read. For example... see the image above. Can you see the red pencil (and yes, there is a red pencil there). That is what I see when what normal people see is this... http://www.colourblindawareness.org/wp-content/themes/outreach/images/slider/whatIs/pencils.jpg Trying to identify anything red can be a right pain in the backside. Which is why the last line of my original post shouts out to Bungie to give us a colour blind option.

                                  I just want to point something out for all the people crying over gender specifics here. Women (and I say this as a guy) are generally better shots than men are. Take a look at history if you will. Annie Oakley for one, was the best shot in her time. Another example is The Vietcong who used women as snipers during the Vietnam war (a shining cinematic example of this is the final segment of Stanley Kubrick's "Full Metal Jacket"), and the Russian army who used them in WWII. Women have a whole lot more going on than men do that give them an advantage when it comes to firing a gun. I'm not talking sharpshooting per se, simply point, aim & shoot reflexes, concentration, focus & mental capacity. A woman isn't thinking the way a man is. Us guys tend to think waaaaay too technically and cloud ourselves from the fundamentals. We just tend to overthink everything. Plus, there's that whole EGO thing (looking at all you KDR whores with that one) which will almost always -blam!- you up when you're more worried about how well you're doing it as opposed to just doing it. The majority of girls who play FPS games (as well as those who fire real guns) just have a calmness about them that all the shooting fundamentals are natural to them. Then add to that the fact that most women are perfectionists AND the added incentive of proving men wrong and well...there you go. I'm pretty sure someone like Ms5000Watts (one of the female gamers on YouTube who plays Destiny and is notoriously accurate) could probably fire a pistol or rifle with the same accuracy, not withstanding the obvious physical deficiencies women have compare to men (ie, can she lift a rifle up & hold it properly, etc.) FPS games of course erase those factors and just brings it down to it's base level of "who's a better shot?" And 1v1 if a elite male and female FPS player squared off, I'd put my money on the girl. TL;DR- Girls focus more and think less when it comes to fundamental tasks than guys, which is why they generally melt face in FPS games more than their male counterparts. Women historically have been used as sharpshooters in real warfare as well, with extremely effective results.
