i was one of the people and i dont think it is the visibility, its the lack of use of this feature in the past players could get used to, it was a problem with the time it was postet (few minutes pre DT) no one had a chance to see it and plan arround, it was the lack of ingame notifications for all who are logged in, and it is the problem of missed important informations while people dont see the tiles because they dont have the launcher window wide enough to see all 6 tiles and the first 2 are clutered with advertisung instead of informations, and a lot just start the client and see the launcher only for few seconds
today we saw a almost 24h pre information for extendet DT so no one can miss it because he dosent pay attention thats wonderfull!
last days and today we saw in the notifications the return of cklickable links… also 10 out of 10 great job!
this all is how it should be! this should be all days all month and all years standard information practise in direct contanct to the players who just use CCPs launcher and client and dont be on social media or monitor active news website and stuff…(or now the “secret” eve forum)
and now i would like to see the last 20% CCP allways is missing to make the feature the got great
red is international a warning sign who goes down to our bloodcolor, green a sign of all ist wonderfull because nature is green, blue is the sky…
come on i dont ask for something totaly not known, and the colorcoding would also give all who see it 2 informations even if the dont read it: if the banner is active something is happening or important to knoa (dont overdue it in using it CCP! it should be a rare thing so it gets the attention)
and the colorcoding gives you instant knowlege about the importance of the information)
and all together if it is used alleays in this way and constantly used if someone needs to know the players will get used to it and teach each other how to read it… next layer of information are the tiles who link to website or forum
p.s.: you could also use other colors for more coding like: white for future feature devblogs, public fleet announcements, devfleets and streams, (nothing you have to be worried about your gameplay today or tomorrow or you have to know abut important changes like patchnotes, maybee use it for fixed important known issues after a patchday
