Now before you say that Valve cant since people will mshoot each other, what if, now what if, the red team has randomized skin textures or each class can have 1 skin only like scout is only Red, but medic is only Blu and so forth

I find it quite sad that the majority of TF2 players don't even realise that there are comics, movies, and a whole freaking story to the TF2-verse that would put most story focused games of today to shame.

Honestly, what other game has crazy middled-aged mercenaries, secret global empires, magician room mates, giant possessed eyes, undead horseless headless horsemen, Australians are the most technological advanced people, Tom Jones, America being the worst invention of George Washington, Abraham Lincon inventing the stairs, throwing piss at people is a professional martial arts technique known as "Jarate", the Loch Ness Monster, and other such nonsense.

Anyway, here's a link to the comics if anyone is finding themselves with nothing to do.

It would be a moot point to say that players would get confused while playing, and shoot the others on your team. I've got to admit, I have once gone half a match trying to hit the people on my team. In regular modes.   
   
Besides, RED team is so much better than BLU.

It was the plan, but the Valve playtester are more stupid than a retarded ape with a 10" knife in between it's eyes, so ofcourse they got confused and started shooting eachother instead of the robots. Thats why its Red VS Blue.

And this is why video game skill should never be equated to actual combat ability.

i think they could have solved this by creating a new texture skin and a new 'team' with a bright vibrant colour (purple or green)/dull quiet colour (brown or grey)
this would easily distinguish attackers and defenders

almost 3 years MvM has been out

If you see a robot you shoot it

August 2012. Barely a year and a half.
But yeah, pretty much that. And I also remember reading that there was an issue with sentries identifying objectives. Don't know if I'm right.

RED versions of all of the robots (besides the Tank and Sentry Buster) can be found in the game files. Originally, Valve had planned for players to play as both BLU and RED team, as seen in the Mann Vs. Machine trailer. It proved too confusing in play tests however, and was inevitably removed.

Problem: I don't know the exacts, but I do know that one team is red and the other is blue.

Solution: While RED is defending bases/luring robots into traps, BLU is introduced as the playable characters in an offense based MVM game mode.

Reverse MvM: You play as a group of BLU mercenaries trying to run the bomb through a heavily guarded robot factory to stop production. It's played like an MMO dungeon, you enter a new room, clear it of robots, take a rest, then move on. However, you fail by having the entire team die at once, as there must always be a bomb carrier.
#39 - anon (02/19/2014) [-]
One team is red.
The other team blue.
But when machines start attacking
No one cares about hue.

The mercs hired by RED and BLU are fighting Gray Mann

gotta stay color consistent
User avatar #54 to #18 - psykobear (02/19/2014) [-]
Actually they were all hired by Mann Co. No more teams.
User avatar #55 to #54 - garymotherfingoak ONLINE (02/19/2014) [-]
Lorewise, you're right. they're rounding up all the mercs that dissipated after gray mann took over Mann Co.
User avatar #43 to #18 - Thundergod ONLINE (02/19/2014) [-]
Then make them Purple team.

on second thought thatd be pretty dank

probably would be part of an april fools thing though

It's because TF2 has been around for so long, you've become accustomed to searching for the opposing color, which could be Red or Blue. And Gray was never a color for the teams so I could definitely see people getting confused in the middle of a match.
#21 to #20 - gorbax (02/18/2014) [-]
Yep. In the closed beta testing of MvM they initially had both Blu and Red characters, and all off the beta testers missed the object of the mission and tried to kill the other coloured characters.

only cause they're dumbasses
User avatar #35 to #21 - doctorprofessornv (02/19/2014) [-]
How the **** did they get confused? "players, you're objective is to kill the grey robots". If you can't differentiate your targets in a battle just because you are 'accustomed' to a certain way, I would say you are a poor tactician. Just my thoughts.
#172 to #35 - gorbax (02/20/2014) [-]
I don't know, my bet is that they weren't actually retarded and knew they had to kill robots, but that they also thought there were player enemies. It doesn't sound that weird at all
#32 - tragicrhapsody ONLINE (02/19/2014) [-]
Half the time in regular games, I forget which team I'm on and shoot my teammates anyways. If 			*******		 robots are around I won't be confused.

Hmm, looks not that bad.    
Moonshine, you say? But I don't like moonshine, may because I've never tasted a good one.   
What else is worth drinking?
