While the new lighting has definitely made some stages look better, it seems many of the dark outdoor stages have lost much their distinctive ambiance. They even look less like nighttime stages anymore and more like bland dawn.
Riptor’s stage, for example, has lost the purple/bluish hue that made it foreboding, while Spinal’s stage is missing greenish glow and vibrancy. They both look washed out.
Some of the nighttime stages like TJ and Cinder’s actually look better, so I’m hoping the new lighting is still WIP.
Also, most of the daytime stages look better, but Thunder’s and one or two others looks too bright.
