This is not a joke and I'll hope to bring it up to anyone.
I've been an avid player since season 0 week 1 and this is the 1st season that I can't truly play. To explain sparkalaphobia, it's the fear of glitter, it may sound odd or laughable but it is uncomfortable to me.
Edit 2: I think some people are overemphasising the phobia. It's not the glitter I'm scared of but the overexposure of light that's the issue. I can stare at a static image no problem, give me a white noise channel and I'm fine, Christmas ornament sure too, but once you flicker a halogen while it rotates, the reflections start to hurt. That's what scares me, the sudden tense sensation rushing behind your skull, the burning image in your eyes, the snapping of your neck from the jerk. Then it hits you, brain.exe gets deleted and you stare into the abyss as if blindness took over. The worse is that with brain.exe dead, your body can forget to breath and you drown in lifelessness until it all comes back. That's what scares me.
The problem are the arrow fetching and the pulsing yellow highlight. Every time there are multiple arrows shimmering (especially in the firing range), I feel uneasy, the pulse gets under my skin and the more arrows there are, the more uncomfortable it becomes. Sometimes to the point I have to force close and cradling myself, because I can feel like an epileptic seizure coming
Can there be an accessibility option to turn ammo matte solid without the pulsing please? Maybe an alternative VFX where it doesn't pulse but a molten transitioning gradient like the gif below or like the Evo shield VFX.
Thank you for reading this.
The main issue is the VFX pattern looks like dotted embossing shimmering through the arrow. One may argue that the VFX has been there on other ammo since season 0 but the difference is their primary colour overpowers/ outshines the ammo box so I don't notice much. The arrow on the other hand have the VFX overwhelm the model.
I also tried all colourblind modes and it doesn't change the VFX or colour for a matter of fact.
Edit 3: I have had no problem with other effects so far, only this due to its slow frequency. Thermite, L-stars, Octane's border stim, Fuse Tactical, Mirage Voyage, are fast dissipating... keep reading on reddit ➡
Recycling used to be done by hand, and knowing the type of plastic helped sorters. Many states even required the "chasing arrows" triangle and still require it today. But now that it's largely done by machine, the symbol just confuses people, because it looks exactly like the recycling symbol. This leads to contaminated (25+%) recycling. But it helps the plastic industry by making people think their waste is getting recycled.
Confused? That's kind of the point.
Rule of thumb - if the number in the triangle ain't #1 or #2, it might be recyclable in a specialized facility, but probably doesn't belong in your recycling bin.
EDIT: This is for the USA. Check your local recycling guidelines, they're online somewhere
Ok so it may have not directly impacted the other shows, but Arrow ending started a wave of bad news for the Arrowverse.
Supergirl and Black Lightning are ending
Three core characters (including Ralph) have left or are going to leave the Flash in season 7(most likely shortening the length of the series)
Legends is just terrible now (ok this one doesn’t really have to do with Arrow ending I just wanted an excuse to call the show bad) (most of the good characters have left this show too)
Green Arrow and The Canaries didn’t get picked up
Batwoman’s main actress leaves the show after 1 season
For me personally, I lost nearly all of my interest in the Arrowverse after Arrow ended. Arrow truly did start something special, but now that it’s gone the Arrowverse is quickly falling apart.
In two years we’ll be lucky to see Superman and Lois and MAYBE Batwoman lol
Say hello to the not-yet-Green Arrow.
Synopsis- Presumed dead for five years before being discovered on a remote Pacific island, billionaire playboy Oliver Queen returns home a changed man.
