    Hello Christine. I have some idea for UI using force power. Playing sorc I often notice that it is uncomfortablet to look at the UI lower right corner to check the force I'm using. It would be a nice to have a small icon hint in the crosshair area, which said that the power is in the hands.

    For example

    Can we make the difference between vehicle types more pronounced in map icons? Can be tricky to see which vehicle it is just by icon alone.

    Edit: made a "feature request" ticket (felt like work :OrkGoff:)

    Hi, I just started last week and I love this game ! However, I don't like much playing CSM vs LSM (or vice versa :)) because it is too hard to distinguish one faction from the other on the battlefield, especially from a far range ! So either i just think "ok this line of fire is too good" and risk TK, either I refrain, don't take the risk and then get shot at ! It's really annoying !!
    Please, please, please... Could you allow for a "color tag mode" ? Something which could be activated in the graphics menu (to not bother those who do not have my problem).
    Something like a "bright red" halo around the enemy marine, or a big red dot above enemy marine head ? It could be a tickbox, which would be quick to activate or deactivate in the settings menu when the battle begins (we could therefore activate it when marines vs marines battlematching occurs, then deactivate when any other faction matchmaking comes after).
    Something quick to implement, ugly if need be, which is optional so ppl don't get upset (and Gork -or is it Mork ?- knows they get upset, in this community, for so little...)

    Keep up the good work !
  6. CSM are usually the ones with horns on the helmets (not always though). In the meantime you could make use of the "spot" function. So when you spot an enemy or a group of enemies they get clearly marked by a target symbol over their head. It could not only help you but also your allies, which also see the target symbol and get the enemies appear on their mini case of they get dealt with shortly after you also get a spot assist XP bonus. Only drawback is that it doesn't always trigger so I usually spam the spot button until you hear and see a response.

    @Brother Nemiel: Nah I don't want to have to press a button to recognise my enemies from my teammates. But that "spot" is really handy though, for lots of other stuff, indeed. And i guess you're right, we should focus on helmet to spot differences.
    But we should have an easier way though. Is it not at all an issue for you ?

    This is a nice idea. I'll pass it on.

    Totally agree with this.

    I'm not sure what you mean... isn't that how it works now? Is this a bug?
  10. Nope not an issue at all. But I am a 40k veteran since 20 years. I know the more playful shapes of Chaos Armor versus the more plain shapes of loyal Space Marine armor by heart.

    Keep an eye on the mini map as all allies are shown there in case you are not sure. A rule of thumb is to check the colors. Bright colors are usually LSM (bright red, light blue, yellow, except the Dark Angels Green might be easy to confuse in the dark, but they have bright red squad markings on their right shoulder pad). Purple glows and vfx are usually chaos. And of course the silhouette as mentioned above.
    Next to horns the backpack is the most characteristic difference
