is anyone getting all the coloured death spam messages? When albs kill mids/hibs, its red.. so no problem

But when mids or hibs kill albs, its grey... isn't it supposed to be blue or green?

edit: appearantly hib death msg also works, so only midgard dth msg is bugged (in albion at least)

Yup, and yes it seems to be bugged

There's also no way of changing the colours

Well i always thought that the new deathspam would be like -green name- was just killed by -red name-! for example, but apparently to my group last night, it was supposed to be the way it is now, so dunno /shrug.

You can change the colour of it. Right click on the top chat box. The box that gives you the death spam etc.

noticed yesterday that when hibs killed ppl it was green and albs killing ppl was red. So its only mids killing ppl that is grey now. Maybe thats the way its supposed to be. Its quite cool actually seeing which realm is getting the spam.. kinda helps to know where they may be too.

It was in some patch notes a while ago, Midgard had blue death spam but because it was the same colour as the one you get when casting spells (i think) it was changed to grey. GOA just gave us the grey version right away, it's not a bug, it's intended.

what kind of crap (pardon my french :)) is this??

so what if it looks like a spell being cast?
i never changed the original colours afaik, so i also get a green msg when a spell expires (dark green) or when loot drops (light green)

and i get red msgs when someone (or me) yells for help, when i get hit or when i die

but blue... oh no, blue has to be unique :s

fact is, that in my case (but i've also talked this over with other ppl) the grey colour just is unnoticable between all the msgs appearing on my screen

- We now, by default, display RvR combat deaths in the color of the realm scoring the kill.

Example:

(green text) Bob was just killed by Hibchar!
(blue text) Bob was just killed by Midchar!
(red text) Bob was just killed by Albion Keep Lord!
however ignoring the blue for mid thing , i have noticed that when bob was killed by a viking archer or a (insert hib PK mage here) the colour of the spam was in the colour of the realm Bob was from. so if Bob was mid it would be grey , if Hib then green. if thats as intended then nerf Alb Keep Lord killing poor alby Bob

My idea of coloured deathspam is whatever type of note I'm buying a round with. It determines the amount of braincells will be going the way of the dodo :)
