Sword and Bored: Dye job

Sometimes I question the artistic prowess of some MMO designers, especially in games where the original artists have moved on to other projects. Many times, I’ve jumped back in to a game after a year or so after its launch, and I’ll question whether the current team did anything other than just reuse old assets for new content. I don’t think any MMO is immune to bad post-launch design.

It looks like the artist’s intern might need to find a new career in Mo’s MMO…

I remember reading about that, yes. As your pictures above show, Sutherland’s color-blindness routinely had him mistaking pink for grey, and vice-versa, because he was attempting to second-guess what he was seeing.
Evidently, the secret came out officially only after he died? He was the boss, after all. :-)

Thanks for the pics!

Cheers,

mysecretid You don’t need entire department to be color-blind, just their boss.
For example: Hal Sutherland, director of the animated Star Trek back in the 70s, was color-blind. Apparently, nobody noticed until the show aired.

Ill have to give it to World of Warcraft. The amount of armor combinations is staggering.
