Yeah, and what if people pick colours that are too close to each other?

They would be the only ones to see the colors, so there wouldn't be an effect the user couldn't fix.

The fact that a user caused a problem and can fix it will not stop some from complaining bitterly about it.

Please fix blue. If it was consistently associated with a certain position in an 8-player game (e.g. first or last) I'd never sign up for a game at that position. I hate playing dark blue.

Uhm. The third player is always blue.

Also, do the colors really matter that much?

Much agreed, I use color codes because of this.. the worst map I can think of is blue on Europe... practically camouflage.

I wonder if this is something that could be solved with a script. 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?

I think this should be possible, not 100% sure though.

grey and green confusion is worst in my opinion, and should be corrected as soon as possible

Using the colour codes should make green (prefix: g) and grey (prefix: s [for silver or slate, I forget which]) easily distinguishable. The problem being addressed here is that, codes or not, the blue numbers often lack sufficient contrast with the map to be seen.
