Is the color vibrancy update to the game's graphics engine still on track for the next big update planned for next month? I'm really looking forward to what the development team has planned for that, but in the latest insider, I heard nothing about it for 2.3 or 2.4. Can you clarify that for me? Thanks!

This is a good question. Also, will this have any negative impacts on us players that play this on a veritable toaster oven?

I would assume it is on track for 2.3. There are videos and image comparisons out there with the changes from the PTS

Hopefully this is a great indicator, but I'm sure the list of "what happens on PTS" vs. "what makes it into the game" is still slightly varied. Clarification on this would be great

The most important thing is will it affect performance? Engine is already a major resource hog, dont need to get worse.

Honestly, I can't think of anything (at least not this big) that was on the PTS and did not make it live (unless they said it would not, like NiM TfB and the instant 55 terminal)

It's still in the PTS patch notes for 2.3 - what don't you understand about that?

Here's the note:
All warfare is based on deception If his forces are united, separate them If you are far from the enemy, make him believe you are near A leader leads by example not by force

This is indeed still on track for 2.3! It is very near zero impact in terms of effect on performance but to protect those playing on less beefy machines like your toaster oven (there's nothing wrong with toaster ovens!) this feature will be off if the graphics quality preset is set to Low or Very Low.

Good to know, thank you! On the plus side, while I'm doing FP's and OP's I can simultaneously cook a Totino's pizza.
