That was just a normal PvP trailer, I think they had white eyes for Bots or it was just a design choice, but like Blue in FFA the White might confuse some players at first in the heat of battle whether or not he’s a friendly. Probably a balancing choice why they stuck with Blue LEDs for the Onyx Guard.
Onyx Guards always had blue LEDs and eyes from their initial design in 3 either bots or human players alike. I figured the white was to signify no team. Maybe they made them red for FFA for the exact reason you said about confusion, however, if someone gets confused about ally or enemy in FFA they should probably just stop playing online altogether lol
Like I said it happens. Call me crazy but when your adrenaline is pumping and you’re used to having teams, having said teammates appear in blue or white would be confusing and act as a neutral agent in the mind to confuse players and lead to frustration.
Yes but the new Onyx Guards are a redesign.
True, however, I seriously doubt they were considering keeping the eyes and lights white. There is already a lot of backlash regarding their current design, lack of unique voice lines, and reusing the COG soldier voice instead of the more bad ■■■ voice from 3 that if they had white lights fans would be even more enraged than they are now
No my point was that maybe the White Lights were considered to be apart of the design but was scrapped, such as other elements that’ve come out in marketing but the Devs have recently come to say were false, (Like the MK2 Lancer in Carmine Trailer, Booshka).
