    The first post in the Art Team Blog has a Zip attached, which will deactivate the Blood in Combat.

    cheers.

    Voted 'yes'...as long as it can be done well, and is race-dependent (Golems/Undead don't bleed, for example, and certain others might have nonred blood depending on lore).

    Wait, I voted "no" because I thought that this was unnecessary work for the team... but on the part of seZereth it's a clear YES!

    Absolutely yes.
    After all, I grew up with the Hokuto no Ken anime.

    I voted no, I usually dislike seeing blood in games I play, aside from thinking there's more important things you guys want to work on, but if you really want to, go for it, even though I don't really want you to
    EDIT: WOuld there be a toggle? Or would that be a waste of time? I'm not really sure

    I voted No, because in this type of strategy games these effects are not realistic. If there was a tactical combat simulation, though, I would have voted yes.

    Voted No, I don't think its necessary. Even many modern FPS are going easy on gore'n'gibs. Too much or badly presented gore just betrays a lack of class.

    Anyways, what kind of blood are we talking here? Little specks that fly around when you hit something, or Diablo blood?

    EDIT: I see its planned to be in patch U, guess I just won't be able to patch further

    I don't really care, and think that there are probably much better uses of the team's time.

    YEAH! BLOOD! And more BOOBS, please! (heavy metal guitars would be awesome too)

    How about a heavy metal civ that would convert enemy female units with awe-inspireing solos?

    As a majority seem in favour of the feature (including the team?), but a significant minority aren't, a graphics toggle doesn't seem out of the question.

    Then everyone's happy. :)

    EDIT: and apparently a BOOBS toggle, too. democracy in action?

    Yes, but it should be a player option (or graphics option if possible). If at all possible that is.

    @ Monkeyfinger:

    The OP being seZereth could have been a clue...?

    I saw that. My interpretation was "this is planned, not finished, and seZereth is asking for feedback whether he should go through with it."

    Answer's no.

    No, if it means additional work, yes if you planed it from the beginning. I do not think it is necessary at all.

    If it can be turned off, sure; my poor laptop is whimpering at the thought of rendering even more pixels...
