Night time is to dark

So if you sit in any room with any sun it is basically impossible to see even with gamma/contrast all the way up

That's the point.... You need a light source such as a lantern to see in the dark.

Darkness should be dark, not a blue filter over a completely bright game world. That goes for both night and indoors.

Edit: Also check your monitor settings. A lot of people have their contrast and/or saturation levels way, way too high. Just use the calibration tool in Windows (you still have to use your monitor controls, but the tool helps)

I don't agree. 

However maybe the lantern could spread the light a little tiny bit more... but that's just an opinion

The night is darker than alone in the dark.

Lantern wont suffice, i would prefer a moon or stars giving off more light source.

It isn't really dark so far, your monitor isn't set to a high enough brightness

Knew this was gonna happen after Daum made night time darker after the alpha feedback.  I feel that the alpha feedback didn't capture the general opinion very well, just the small group that was dedicated enough to get a key.

From my brief experience with the darker night, I feel like it hurts Melee characters way more than ranged.

HAve people who are seeing too dark nights/interiors checked their monitor settings?

Contrast or saturation don't HAVE to be at 100%, which is probably causing the issue.

Yes, it's like i have to play with the colour filters every time the weather changes to get decent lighting..... so annoying.

Even filter is played the lighting still looks meh...

It might just be monitor as others have said with contrast and saturation, I have been able to see fine in the game when I played the game. If its the sun that should be able to be blocked off easily enough.

I personally like how dark the night is.

Seriously? You're moaning about having to change colour filters? This is one of the few games that have dynamic weather systems, any games that used to have them got it taken away due to people crying about not being able to see, stop ruining this shit for people who actually want dynamic weather, who want it difficult to see because stormy weather isn't a walk in the park, because if I can train in the middle of the night, pitch black, with the wind and rain howling around me, that's how I want to bloody well train.

I agree completely. I can definetly see what they were trying to do with the night time and its a good concept. And i have to say its pretty cool that mobs are stronger and give more xp in the night. Its nice to have change of pace from other mmos once in a while. However given the fact that the night lasts just as long as day ( dhaaa i know right?) this means half of the time you will be playing you will have problems seeing where the hell you're going or what you're doing. And thats not fun. They could have implemented this system for example just in some areas, or make like a season based weather, with winter being the darkest. I just don't think it will be fun playing half the game not seeing where you're going. Cool concept but will probably get old real fast. And yes before you say anything, i did purchase a lantern, makes little to no difference imo.

I 100% agree with this, cmon guys you want a mmo like any other, then there are many other mmo's out there you can play, this adds something good and new to the world and makes it a bit harder, everyone usually complains about every mmo, its to much the same its to much like other mmo's but when there is finally change then you complain its to different and to hard. I LOVE  the night its something new and it makes it harder unlike every other EASY mmo there is out there. So please stop complaining

Why not make light level dependant on moon phase?

I personally love the idea of total darkness because of the possibilities it gives. Sieges would become more about tactics if done at night time with defenders able to flank under darkness or attackers sneaking a small force behind enemy lines :-D and its just different to add a different atmosphere to the whole game.

 

Big thumbs up from me!

I don't mind the darkness you can always adjust your brightness but the lanterns could give out more light and instead of a red flare

+1 to the lanterns giving more light.

It is fine that the nights are dark, but the area lightened up by the lantern should be a lot wider in my opinion. We should be able to see what's in a couple of meters around us, not just if that's an actual ground that we are standing at.

The darkness at the moment is kind not fair for the Melee classes (I am not playing one, so it's not that I want an improvement for myself), as they just can't see where are they getting hit from if the attacker is a ranged class.

Night time is not a bit too dark it is far too dark.
There should definitely be an option for players who want to have it brighter.

+1 to more light from lanterns.

 

I like that nighttime is dark.  Maybe it could be that a cloudless, starry night could be somewhat visible, but cloudy (or stormy--that was FUN) makes it extra dark.  But I definitely feel like the lanterns didn't have enough of an effect.  As is, I can see myself fine, and whatever I'm in melee with pretty well, and anything else is basically gone.

 

Edit & suggestion: By sheer coincidence I was making a second character when the stormy night was tested, so I was effectively blind during the intro until I was allowed into my mailbox.  Could maybe put something for lighting where you begin?  (This was on a ranger, in case other classes have a more well-lit start)
