Thanks for trying to help me snag an achievement or two, Ryom. Alas, my self-imposed "thirty minutes for lunch" was NOT enough time to get warmed up, or to get multiple tries in. :D

I'm new to Overwatch, and I think I picked a great month to dive in. Junkenstien's Revenge is a lot of fun, and the extra loot boxes are really nice.

I'm Strangething#11387 if you want to play along.

I'm really hating Junkenstein right now. Trying to do no damage runs is so frustrating.

At least I haven't run into any more leavers- I insta-report those anyway- but it's really really hard if your dps aren't at the top of their game.

And you're Zenyatta stuck guarding the gate from the errant tires.

Though, could be worse. I could be Zenyatta camping the left side because our DPS is excdedingly terrible and is sticking to the door.

I had a game where the DPS seemed really disinterested in guarding the gate, leaving it to me-Brig alone, and Brig can't do that! She can only do light cleanup and lacks the burst damage to handle undamaged shocktired reliably.

Only sticking to the door isn't great, but I've seen people stick to the upper left to wrack up kills and never come down- like, two people up there, leaving the other two to handle everything else.

Friendly Torbjorn needs blue lava. I don't care if it looks stupid, other ultimates are color coded so you know instantly if they will hurt you or not.
-Dragonstrike: blue = ok, red = it hurts!
-Blizzard: blue = safe, red = run away!
-Meteor Strike: blue targeting ring = sucks to be you, red targeting ring = dodge!

I could go on but you get the point. Meanwhile Torb's ultimate comes in orange and... a slightly redder shade of orange :( If I turn around and see that the floor has suddenly become lava I need to know instantly if the ground is safe to walk on or if it will kill me. Give me blue lava!

They seem pretty distinct to me.

That said, have you tried messing around with the color blindness settings? I know it allows you to change allied/enemy colors, perhaps it interacts with the new molten core too.

I'm quite happy with the color settings for everything else, I don't want to put a color filter on the entire rest of the game just to fix Blizzard's mistake.

Because it is a mistake. UI elements in a shooter need to be really clear and distinct to communicate a whole lot of information in a very short amount of time.
