While we're on this topic; we should allow players to customize their colours. Correct me if I'm wrong but which kind of fucking RTS at this point doesn't have a freaking colour customization?

A game with twelve players is pretty much just going to lag and be awful anyway.

And the pink doesn't look THAT bad. It's doom-pink. :P

Bulljive. I think team-colored Twilight Archons are fuckin' gold. Now while the pink one needs some tuning, I don't see why we can't have purple, blue, red, green, teal, or hell...brown? Okay, brown seems odd. Hmm...maybe it won't work for all colors.

Fuck it, who cares? I just don't want to see the TA as blue or red, since those were the original Archons. I mean, it should be some sort of lovely amalgamation, correct? Purple it is!!!

Obama has won. The seas of change are flooding the streets- a deluge of possibility, a monsoon of opportunity, a literal tsunami of inspiration. We're talking hope. And the only thing left to do is to put on some swimming trunks, maybe a pair of goggles, and just riiiide the wave...

And a major pox on that bastard Jeph Loeb. Everything you touch dies.

Yeah. Lol. As long as it isn't the scary neon pink, I can stand it to some extent.

I just don't want to see a bunch of enormous bright pink psionic beings being used by someone who likes to uses Archons too much.... Bright neon pink everywhere would be... scary. XD

I want pink archons.

I want my enemy to take it easy, think I'm a pansy...

Then I will crush his base with my pink army and laugh in his face...

there is that side of it, yes...

anyway, don't get me wrong - it is not the end of the world- I will *not* stabb my own eyes and sue Blizz for damages if zealots get pink psi blades, but c'mon it can be done better.

As I said many times... I dont want team colored psi, pylons and Archons.

It makes the game too colorful and less dark/deep like SC1. Bright and rainbow happy colors are for Warcraft franchise. This is Starcraft.

Cut the Tempest model. Make a new one that resembles our beloved Carrier!
Zealot's Psi-Blades, Pylons and Archons must be BLUEISH-WHITE!
Don't use team color there please.

No way in hell I will command pink Archons. I`d rather change my name to Lulu and go around the corner giving special favors to people for money.

lol.

I will play Devil's Advocte for a moment. Cartoon graphics and vibrant colours, such as pink, compliment eachother. Therefore, pink naturally examplifies StarCraft II's marketing pedigree. In conclusion, PINK GOGO.

Then I advise you to gouge your eyes out cause the thing is at the moment StarCraft 2's graphics is essentially a carbon copy of WarCraft. Bright, happy and cartoony. It'll take some time for the graphics to have a revamp so I suggest you find a way to preserve your eyes while your at it.

This is a really old video. I'd at least wait to see if they are still using the team-coloured psi with the zerg update next week before panicking.

Even if they stick with it, they might find a different way to colour the archons.

Personally I don't mind the way this looks, though.

So re-model it so it is thick enough.

First off I don't see your reasoning behind a 12 player game lagging really bad. In WC3 people would hold 12 play FFA and those would never lag. And the armies in those games were huge, so it would be comparable to SC2 easily.

Second off, relating towards the color pink. You would be surprised at how many times you are given the color pink in random matchmaking. I swear out of 10 games I would play in a day. I would get pink at least twice and purp at least 3. (The two I hated the most, might I add). But my point is that pink will be randomly selected, just like the rest.

EDIT: I got another beef with the protoss aesthetics. The pylons crystal, it is incredibly dull! The crystal in SC is really pointed and gives it a more i don't know.. cool feeling. But this new one with how dull it looks, just makes the pylons look like crap. But that is just my opinion.

So wait.

Do you not like the pink because it looks bad, or because it's 'effeminate' and you don't want to look like a 'pansy' a 'fag' or a 'wimp'?

Then you must be extremely lucky. Games with even 8 people would lag like crazy for me...

Purple was extremely common, but uh... it was supposed to, it looks great, deep and mysterious (well I think it does anyway). In most 2v2 I'd generally get the first four, Red/Blue/Teal/Purple... and then rarely the other four... uh... yellow, orange, pink and green. Never brown, light blue, dark green or gray. Or at least not that I can remember. The only 'common' colour I didn't like was the yellow and the teal. Both were pretty ghastly and blinding.

It is not because pink is a femanine color. It is because pink looked stupid on any race besides Human in WC3.

And in regard to the occurance of colors in WC3. Red/Blue for me VERY seldom came up. I remember, because whenever I would get red or blue I would be astonished that I finally got a normal color...
