Battlefield 3 Dev’s Won’t Ban You for Color Tweaker Mods

Battlefield 3 gameplay designer Gustav Halling previously warned players that they could be banned for using color-tweaking mods, most likely in an effort to preserve the integrity of fair play. Fortunately, the devs have since examined the case and have determined that tweaking colors does not affect game balance in a significant way.

Not only will players not be banned for using color tweaks, but Dice is also including an easier way for players to mess with the colors. EA Dice staffer Mikael Kalms posted:

“There will be a console command for disabling the color grading entirely in the game included with the next PC game client update. We believe that turning it off gives no major competitive advantage/disadvantage.”

If you’re not familiar with BF3′s color filters and what the game looks like without them, check out this video:

That looks like a commercial for anti-depression medication.

I am a little confused. The darker version is with color grading turned off? Does this give a few extra fps? If not, why do people do it?
