    Skins

    To be, or not to be, that is the question.

    What I was talking about was the focusing of a character if you happen to stand out in the crowd. For instance, all your teammates have default or bland types of skins, and you have a highly vibrant skin. You will a center of attention, or at least will be helped by that. I noticed that myself, and now try to blend in with my teammates, but the thing is, when to do it and when to not. For example, if we have a crit hunter, with a vibrant skin, I want to be the non-focused guardian that isn't readily seen, so that I can run in, do the CC, and then it's too late for that enemy. That seems to be true, because of psychology. Like bright red skins, highly vibrant multicolored skins, they're a focus of attention, and we can't help it.

    they will pay attention to the ares who has max cdr and runs blink.

    they don't have a choice when I can just pop in front of them and chain them into oblivion

    So you mean to tell me that you honestly believe if I'm Terra with the volcanic looking skin, the other team will ignore my softer, more damaging teammates because they have default skins?

    I think you're confusing people with magpies

    Exactly. Depending on the character(s), what to do and what not to do.

    This statement contradicts the premise of your initial argument.

    If its dependent on which characters are there, then their choice of skin has zero impact as you initially insinuated.

    RonanTheGreat What? That was my original intention, even if you saw it or not. Does psychology not exist?

    I've noticed that some players focus on whoever stands out the most in terms of colors. And I have been on the receiving end of that focus especially when I play Aphrodite (and way more attention when I use her Afro-Dite or Diva skins). Luckily for me, her Kiss-Love Birds-Back Off! combo can do really good damage especially during mid to late game. Not to mention her passive helps with the extra protections. Although it's not happy ending half the time.

    But it's not only the skin that makes you a target. It's also the god you chose and the way you play the game.
