It seems like every-time I play this game, I struggle ALOT with picking out whats going on around me. It’s so hard to explain, and I have never had this problem with other games.
I have Aspergers Syndrome. I have very sensitive senses. Sometimes one sense gets mentally dulled out if I am trying to focus on another sense, the most common combo is when I’m listening to someone speak, I’m not focusing on my visuals, I am focusing on hearing. I am not making eye contact with the one who is speaking with me because of this, and thus they think I’m not listening lol.
I do pride myself with having amazing vision and awareness, but something with this game just makes my visual processing have a BSOD.
Friends probably can recall how PISSED I got on the Tempest maps, and the final boss’ over-colourful arena. I could not pick out/focus on ANYTHING. It was just one over stimulating colour combo that drowned everything out. The spells and effects too are very bright and flashy that the whole thing became ones visual mess to me.
As an Artist, I love the bold leap at the over-saturated and complementary colour schemes they went with. BUT AS A GAMER, I HAAAATE IT.
It’s rough with minion waves too. When both waves have an over-shield I am just… WHAT ONES ARE ON OUR TEAM AGAIN? Even learning the maps is rough because man… lol…
And that example of how my other senses dull when I am trying to focus mainly on one sense? The game’s visuals can be so overpowering that I can’t hear my friends on the mic. Ops points have been derped because of that lol.
The curiousity is just eating at me if anyone else has the same over-stimulation with the visuals…
