You may have noticed a change in colors on smash.gg and how they appear on matches. This change is most apparent on the Match Dashboard but is also reflected on Bracket Pages, Event Pages, the Player Dashboard, and other locations around the site.
For a deeper explanation of the colors we've chosen, read below.
When looking at Tournaments, Events, and Matches we recognized that there are three main states to represent: upcoming, in-progress, and finished. Of those three states, the two that require more immediate attention are upcoming and in-progress, so we wanted to grant those ones more visual weight to be able to draw your attention to them better. Based on that, the general rules we've established are:
Blue: Used to represent things that are upcoming
Green: Used to represent something in progress
Grey: Used to represent something completed
Red: Used to represent something that requires immediate attention (such as a moderator request), or errors
Yellow: Used to represent something that requires attention, but not as harsh or immediate as red (such as when a match has been called)
