The first thing is we should know what is the purpose of coloring nicknames? If it is only about being cool and showing off your position or just wearing the outfit you like then… who cares ;d just let me use red
But if the purpose of it is more practical… for example the easy and quick way to recognize ppl who can do specific things, then I think it should be reworked from that perspective. Which role is important for others to quickly recognize? I think that only scythes / mentors / admins are essentially important to be spotted quickly. Mystics are irrelevant from the point of view of most players and they already have their own chat tab. Similar with mods. It is not important to see who is mod. But idd it is important to see who can reap, who can help in cube, and who is able of doing unique things like admins can do. Then we only need 3 colors and separate way of saying who is also a mentor. For example:
That way it would be also easy to introduce new players to most important distinction in powers. And help them to spot in chat the one they need at the moment. Also it would be nice to have some counter of online roles when logging into chat like:
online players: orch, orch, orch, orch, orch, orch, orch, orch, orch…
online scythes: orch, orch
online mentors: orch, orch, orch
For me personally it is more important then showing off. For that purpose maybe we can do sth in ladder? Like colors in ladder? or emblems or sth like that?
