I don't think the issue with a lack of indicator is the game being too challenging... I think the issue is, it doesn't make sense.
It's like making the puck the same colour as the ice. You, in theory, can have a good idea of where the puck is at all times, but it's unusual, and without any justification as to why it should be the same colour.
Especially when playing multiplayer. I only ever play 4 players.
This is feedback. Do whatever you want with your rom. Just understand not everyone's going to find an adjustment like this to be favourable.
Just remember. It's your rom. Do whatever you want with it. But when you put it in a public setting, it's subject to criticism. This isn't your forum.
