    It is almost impossible to tell the color difference sometimes, esp with wails and other specials

    The game allows you to set fixed colors for both teams if you have trouble telling them apart

    Well, this escalated quickly. I totally agree. The new color combination is almost unplayable, especially when it comes to things like splat bombs where telling the difference very quickly is crucial. Heck, even players are almost undistinguishable in this combination. I'd never thought that the color lock combination would come in handy at some point. Glad it's there now...

    Nintendo should fix this asap. I liked the color variation in Splatoon until now. Being limited to blue and orange is a letdown.

    How new is this color combo? I haven't seen it yet, is there an example someone can show me? Like a game screenshot or something, so I can see the colors? I'm at work now, so I can't look it up myself, darn Internet Usage Agreement

    I've never seen this problem myself. I mean sure I've seen purple and pink colors, but they're normally contrasted by something like Purple/Orange or Pink/Blue.

    I find myself treading through enemy ink without realizing it, so yes this combo needs to be removed or fixed up a bit so it's possible to distinguish the two.

    This was in Ranked last night, not in Regular Battles.

    And yes, it's hard to tell the difference, and I don't want to do color lock because that takes some of the charm away from the game. Make the purple darker and the pink lighter, like...

    The top would be the current and the bottom would be something better, see how the bottom is much easier to tell apart? For bombs and stuff it's already kinda hard to tell which is which and when I was watching a YouTuber play last night, I absolutely couldn't tell what color a Splat Bomb was.

    Yes, the bottom is much easier to tell apart, but depending on how the developers texture the ink itself it could be a hole different story.
    Right now it's a combination of color shades and textures that makes it hard to distinguish the colors.

    It's limited to squad battles only at the moment I think.

    it's actually pretty ridiculous

    on some maps it's not so bad (flounder mainly), but on maps with shadowed areas like mackerel it's actually unplayable. wails, splats, suctions, enemy players... you can tell them apart sometimes but it actually takes some thought, which is just dumb

    Yep. Entire squad turned on color lock after 2 games with it. I don't know what they were smoking and hopefully they change it quickly. Previous squad battle colors have been around since the update so we'd probably be stuck color locked with this one till the next splatfest.

    +1 in favor of this being a bad color combo

    Actually takes a second in some cases to remember which shade you are even, bleh

    Anyone got a screenshot of it?

    Edit: I can get a basic understanding from these images though.

    perhaps I'm the only one (and that's totally possible) but I don't mind the combination. yes they "should" make them easier to tell them apart, its silly so many people are having trouble, but I personally haven't had a huge problem with it in any of the battles that I've had with the two colors

    I haven't played this colour, but here's the first video I could find that shows it off (starting at 54:14):


    These are also the NA Splatfest colours, so good luck Americans trying to tell these apart in even worse lighting conditions lol.
