Space Battles Headaches?

After playing the new space battle mode on both the PTR and live servers I start getting headaches after two games and have to quite playing for a bit.  Does anyone else have physical problems playing in the space battle mode?  Headaches, eye strain, nausea? I don't have this problem in regular matches.

Don't get me wrong I love the mode and ships, I just can't physically play it as much as I want to.

It's the grid line with no background contrast that's making you nauseous. So when your ship moves at speed, the map's grind line looks like a mess of shifting patterns. Aim your camera at the horizon.

Either that or being proper training for space battles.

I played two after the patch and felt very disoriented- worse than usual.

I tried it once last night again and same thing.

It doesn't bother most I guess- our loss. Oh well.

Some humans have their souls weighted down by gravity. They need to be liberated.

What is this you speak of? Are there economic benefits that differ from regular battles?

Sort of.  You get normal rewards plus whatever flags you equip, but the commanders are already 19 points so any commander exp you earn is automatically turned into Elite EXP.

Haven’t noticed anything; but like one player suggested, I’m always watching the minimap and horizon; so maybe I just haven’t noticed anything...

I recommend drinking more alcohol while playing; works for me. Also, sorry to hear people are having issues playing.

I played this in test and didn't like it much - it made me dizzy.  But, I kinda just forced myself through it (free elite commander's exp) and now it doesn't bother me at all.  I think you can just adjust to it.

try to make small adjustments to your resolution or screen settings for this. some games will do the same to me, i feel at the improper resolution/screendistance etc, it can play havoc with optic input, for anyone. You might ask your optician or optometrist with a consult, they might be able to troubleshoot it for you, considerations made based on your possible corrective lenses, natural eye curvature/lens shape, and distance you sit from the screen.

I haven't felt ill or got a headache from space battles at all so far but I only play 6-10 games a night anyways so that could be it.

No headaches or other physical symptoms but I have other issues seeing if ships are going in front of rocks/islands.

Yep.  Similar feeling in space games (Battlestar Galactica Online, Elite Dangerous), where there is no up or down.   A little disorienting at first, but you get used to it.

My problem is the transparent water, with some of my shots aimed at the bottom of the hull, rather than the waterline.

The only thing that cause me headaches is the aiming. God you can't properly aim at broadside because of the space aspect .
