Just played philadelphia map, actually i just look at it and forfeit the game ( yeah you can accuse me of point dumping on this one ), could not see a thing.

Please be aware that almost 10% of the population is colorblind. Is it that hard to NOT put a blue region next to a purple ( or whatever color looks like blue ), same thing for brown and green, yellow and green etc ...


We care about colorblind people.
Said that it's not easy to find the right colors for every type of colorblind vision. Actually we use tools to test how a map can be seen by a colorblind user. Unfortunately we don't have a real proof of a successful test till the community don't play the map. Only in that momnet we're sure that there's no real colorblind issue.
Now, it seems we have a problem here and I make sure to point RB0 here.
For now i have to ask to you a thing: since for us is not possible to see what you see, please give me a precise description of the issues you have with this map (e.g. "Cant' see the difference between the color of South Philly and Center City"). More accurate you are, a better map we can give to you.
Last thing, remember that the final result should please also the other 90% of world population, just we need to find a compromise that works with everyone ;)
