Fall of Cybertron-What happened to the colors?

So today, I decided to play Fall of Cybertron on Xbox 360, which needed to download an update. The only problem is, the multiplayer create a character colors are SCREWED UP. They have scrapped the original colors that shipped with the game, and replaced them with colors that makes it impossible to make certain characters such as Megatron and Starscream, while others such as Soundwave (thank Primus), Optimus Prime, and Shockwave can still be made in the multiplayer. Does anyone know why High Moon decided to pull this stunt, and if it will be fixed? (DLC or update maybe?)

Okay, this is terrible. I can no longer make my characters look the way I wanted. They removed the options that let my Infiltrator look like Hot Rod and Ultra Magnus look like... well, Ultra Magnus. Argh. These new options suck. Why oh why couldn't they just let us pick the primary and secondary colors of each part? I can kind of understand limiting some colors to each faction, but this is just stupidly limiting. :BANG_HEAD:

yep, a little disappointed. it is a bit of an improvement from the last game, but still, I'd like to be able to make a red and yellow autobot, or maybe a yellow and purple (or dark blue) one. Choice of primary and secondary colours would be pretty awesome too. I suppose I can understand why they don't let you make the custom characters appear as the feature characters, but...bah!

This makes no sense. Why is it so hard to just let us choose each color individually? Why do we only get to choose from a limited set of two predetermined colors? In most cases you have to settle for a color combination which ruins the whole design-a-character that you want aspect.

I hope they do that for all the characters, honestly. You're making a character, you're not making Soundwave or Starscream. Be original.

No, what you should be complaining about is how it can be impossible to quickly id an ally or enemy visually. Without seperating parts by bot/con like they did in the first game, to many of the color schemes look similar.

And why can't we apply color to specific parts?

I don't know about others, but I always use the most saturated versions of the color combos anyway, leaving the washed out options untouched. It would be great if those were replaced with other color combos.

It seems the issue was fixed with the release of the Dinobot DLC, but it is now back to the inferior color choices. What is going on here?

I really don't like the color choices/combos they got on this game... they should of given us more solid colors! I don't know how we can be "original" if we don't have colors to choose from in order to make it our own design... but whatever, hopefully they'll fix this issue...

I dont think it's an issue, I think it's a choice. And I can tell how annoying that would be...
