This is possible, if you have BOB.
Go into a game, click on MAP OPTIONS, CIRCLE WHITNESS (each click makes the circles behind the armies 10% whiter)

Let everyone choose the colors of the various 8 slots in a game in their control panel. Offer a color palette for those that aren't as technically aware, and have a text input field that will accept a hex color code as an input (like #AA0000 for Dark Red).

If I recall correctly, once upon a time, scripts like BOB took control of the writing or rewriting of the troop numbers (in the early days, this was how colour codes were provided, before they were added to the site). At that time, there were offset options to line up the text with the map. More recently, a site update changed how the troop numbers are presented, and such overwriting was dropped. Could it be restored, so that blue numbers could be written in a more legible colour scheme?
