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,

schlag sweetleaf hugmonster Really do wonder what they had to bribe him with to get into that costume…

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.

Some of the best dyes are on the CE and authentication vendors. Also nailed some good ones off the cantina meeting awards. All essentially free. Finger of shame.

I wish it was some old school WoW style trolling. However, I am afraid it is not!

Thanks for another strip!

Your comic, and your commentary, make me think of SWTOR. 
My friends and I have often remarked about the hideous color schemes which populate that game. I mean, rust orange paired with bright lime green? You don’t need to be a fashionista type to know that’s fugly.

We’ve come to the conclusion that someone working in the SWTOR costume-creation department in a senior position actually hates Star Wars fans — or Star Wars itself  — and is doing it all on purpose.

Either that, or the entire costume department is profoundly color-blind, which seems statistically unlikely. :-)

See Also.  I’m counting on you for a good one, Schwag.  Maybe with a droid?

And many of those “great looks” aren’t free, either!  A combo I frequently see piling up on the broker is blue and green.  Because this.
