Why did developers decide in PINK stars?

Who's the weirdo that decided on pink stars when developing btw? Why not red white and blue? Or opal(shiny black color? Or even tie dyed stars if I must say so myself, I think those should be the next level up after all pinko's...or even a bloody red to show their time in battle would be better than pink stars, heck, even a skull and crossbones would get the point more across than the "pinko's"
Guts & Glory, not always in that order.

    They just generated a random hex code. Don't read too much into it.

    But, hey. If they do want us to stop calling them "pinkies" maybe @afroponix is onto something...

    It was the only color they hadn't nerfed yet and research showed people would be more willing to chase pink stars with more time and money than any other color.

    I like the pink. Think a lot of guys (and girls) may like the pink too ;)

    Factoid: pink was originally a clothing color for a men's clothing line.

    And it'll actually just be a grey star, but called "black"

    What's wrong with pink? I like the bright colour. Black, grey..seriously? Isn't the game dull enough? So many maps are so dark you can barely see. Red, blue...those colours might not come out very clear and sharp. Bright green and maybe sky blue would show up well

    @ Teeceezy, can you please verify that adding more pink stars will not increase our challenge RSL difficulty after update? I certainly hope not, i dont care if it raises scavenge, but challenge is a different story. :)

    Cool, I'm not the only one who think this is a horrible colour which damages the atmosphere of the game.

    I like pink as well but it just not fits here!

    The stars from 1-5 are kinda silver... why not make it golden, bronze or any other metallic colour tone.

    Pink is ridiculous and changing the colour is just several seconds of work.

    Depends how much one reads into it I guess...

    White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity. It is considered to be the color of perfection.

    White means safety, purity, and cleanliness. As opposed to black, white usually has a positive connotation. White can represent a successful beginning. In heraldry, white depicts faith and purity.


    Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.

    Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags.


    The colors Red and White combined make the color Pink.

    So reading into it one could say Pink would be balance.

    Her name is an irony, not sure if it's her given name, intentional irony or not?

    Pink is traditionally a soft, associated feminine color... And she's not really those things. Lol. Good singer tho.

    Could be intentional. Always loved her from the start and her badassness. But yes, “traditionally” it is indeed soft and feminine. Blue doesn’t have to be masc nowadays though. Nor does pink have to be fem. But anywho... I wouldn’t be mad at pink skull and crossbones. Lol

    Actually...

    'In fact, pink was even considered to be a masculine color. In old catalogs and books, pink was the color for little boys, said Leatrice Eiseman, a color expert and executive director of the Pantone Color Institute.

    "It was related to the mother color of red, which was ardent and passionate and more active, more aggressive. Even though you reduce the shade level, it was a color that was associated with boys," Eiseman said.'

    So it's more of a recent tradition and might as well change (again).
