Thread: *Bad*: Radiance "on" state is a slow blinking. Blinking is for attention, not state.

    i disagree with OP, i like it as is, blinking does not mean "attention" and its not blinking, its radiating, funny thing for an item called "radiance" to radiate.

    The only thing its "doing" is distracting.

    Agree with OP. Maybe keep this animation to loop once or twice when the item is created, but no need to keep it there.

    it's a cool touch, and i dont think it will distract players anymore after maybe 2 weeks.

    nah.radiance looks cool now.dont really understand why it become such a distracting thing though. at least i didnt felt so. although i do felt disturbed with certain items which are dark,weird looking,ugly and...sorry,i'll post it in the relevant thread.

    anyway, i do sure hope valve can leave it as it is. kinda like the new effect on the radiance icon now. or maybe valve can just put an option to disable item animation like potrait animation option so all parties can be happy and be done with this

    I'm pretty certain I'm not alone at all here. If someone blinks it should only be for a moment to get attention, not blink non stop.
    Same for me. Atleast give us a way to turn animation of items off.

    i dont think "i have diagnosed myself with some obscure condition" is a valid reason for why valve should change it

    The only thing that should blink (if any) is Divine Rapier, gem, and Aegis. If valve is going to make Radiance blink these should too.
