Hey folks what's up!
I have some things to discuss about Gotham Divided and it's current state of atmosphere in the map itself, since I pointed this out yesterday on the official IC channel, thought it'd be better to make a forum post about this now that I'm laying in bed with a bit of a fever.
Hopefully I can word this out correctly, if there's anything badly worded such as type-o's or mistakes here, let me know!
I've been thinking about Gotham Divided lots, I am a fan of tri-map lanes and can't wait for more improvement to happen as in the QnA was said that GD was their number 1 focus competitively.
Also I love atmosphere in any game, if it's done right (example: Journey) it could look a-mazing.
The theme atmosphere for Gotham Heights is destruction, so I understand Turbine went for the dark-grainy look. After the Orbital Cannon capture points gets destroyed, the atmosphere/colour would look more darker/burgundy which is totally great and looks very interactive.
Looking at Coast City, looks very warm and inviting and eye-friendly. There is no "destruction" going on except for the Doomsday device, which looks badass with the bright yellow.
Since GD has no "Destruction" going on, it has the same grainy-atmosphere that GH has. This can be very confusing for champions who have the color like Blue Beetle. The bright blue is very destracting from the darkish look that GD has.
I would love to discuss some possible stuff and changing the colour scheme a bit on the map itself, it would look great since IC is pretty detailed itself.
