    I came across this today.
    It's a petition for a patch to MW2 putting in a colour blind option.
    Currently, the only way to tell the teams apart is by a coloured name above someone's head. Green for friendly, red for enemy. 9% of males are red-green colour blind, so you can see how this may be a problem.
    I'm not colour blind myself but one of good friends is.

    Sign it anyway and make that 9% of the population enjoy a great game! :D

    I think it'd be better for them to return the game, demand a refund, and buy a better game.

    Like TF2.

    Aren't mods supposed to set a good example by not being jackasses?

    this petition is useless

    why would IW care about their fanbase

    however hopefully some day it will be normal to add in a colorblind option

    Gah I can't make it out Pseudo.

    I'm colour blind, not sure about color blind thought.

    EDIT: TF2 has a colour blind mode, as does L4D/2

    he has a point though. mw2 is terrible. but i like the idea of making it color-blind friendly.

    the game itself is fine, the bugs/lack of support is what killed it for me.

    I tend to have colorblind mode switched on in most competative games anyway. I find that it speeds up my reaction time when I don't have to process the slight differences.

    I'm not supposed to see anything, and I can't make out any of the 6 plates, except the 25 one, which is as clear as day.

    Though I don't have red-green, I have trouble distinguishing blue-purple-light pink, and yellow-light green.

    Mods are people too!

    There are a few of the staff who need to watch what they say so that not to give us a bad image...
    .
    ..

    Return the game and get a real fps like q3a or ravenshield.. days before "modern day FPS" had rechargeable shields and the ability to sniper with a m60, spam nades and dolphin dive. lawlz-kills lawlz-kills...

    :O

    heh =p
