Recently with the latest patch update I have been finding it more difficult to switch channels in game and identify them correctly, before due to the colour I could tell in the corner of my eye what channel I was on, now I have to try and figure out what my squad mates are saying.
As you can imagine I am playing mostly on Desert maps where the pastel coloured writing is incredibly difficult to see (especially early morning where the in-game sun shines right on the writing) due to the mods and game modes I play I hardly ever sit around so changing channels, admining the server, commanding people and in general trying to read what people have put has become very difficult in the midst of a fire fight.
If I was playing DayZ all the time I could understand the need to not have obtrusive writing as its all about the experience, but for me leading 50 people around a battlefield I need communications to be clear and concise.
I am also man enough to admit that I talked on global for about 10 minutes about our tactics before someone on the opposite team was kind enough to say shut up
Im not asking for the writing to be reverted as I know DayZ is now your main income, what I am asking for is the ability for the user to change the colour of the writing themselves easily either mission based or from the options control panel.
Otherwise for me im going to have to revert to teamspeak which I really do not want to do as I enjoy using your ingame von, for its PvP aspects it really does bring in a massive difference as I can hear enemies talking nearby and its better for communications between grunts, squads and commanders (respectively direct, group and command), and it removes the need for a third party client which would just increase the difficulty of players joining the server.
