I was doing some KOTH with some friends last night, and I realized at one point that i was just shooting at shadows, not really able to tell who is who… we were on Bunker, fighting over the dropshot/GL spawn ring…
I would not tell friend or foe, it was just shadows moving around…
that really got me down…
one of the reason I loved GoW4 was that it was so easy and obvious to tell who were friends and who were enemies. I’m slightly color blind , and I hate any color based systems (you know, if there is a small red dot over a player he is enemy if there is a small green dot they are a friendly, etc)… GoW4 was so great… Even maps like Impact Dark, where some characters were hard to spot, I could still easily tell, once I saw / detected them, what they were…
In Gears 5, I don’t have that feeling anymore… Everything blends together… between each other, into the background…
Does anyone else have that feeling too?
For me it’s just the process of ageing, My reflexes are slower than they were; I tire more quickly from sports; in winter I sometimes wake with bad lower back pain; I’d walk past clubs and not even be offered an entry flyer anymore… Gears man, it’s a young man’s game now.
Thankfully I don’t have this issue but I can see why it happens.
I spam tac com all the time (it’s a subconscious thing at this point) and so I’m able to immediately tell if someone’s an enemy if I see someone moving and they’re not on tac com. Basically I ALWAYS know where my teammates are so by process of elimination I’m able to tell if someone’s an enemy or not.
I’ve had this happen. Not that often and sometimes I just lose people in a shotgun fight.

Yes I have to spot a lot but I still get taken by surprise sometimes. At least they changed the Terminator character as that one was the most troublesome.
I’ve definitely found that at times certain character skins are harder to see against a darker background. The terminator for sure. So I switched to darker skins myself.
Yeah, darker characters and skins seem to give a bit of an advantage in this game. I can’t see nothing on Canals
