No BF3 Color Grading Removal

A follow-up post from DICE senior programmer Mikael Kalms says he must retract his recent statement that an option to turn off color grading would be included in the next client patch for Battlefield 3 (thanks Joao). Here's the reasoning:
After discussing this further with my colleagues, we have decided to not implement this feature. This is the studio’s take on this matter, and I support this decision:

"As a studio, it is extremely important for us at DICE to have a unique identity in our games, not only from a gameplay perspective, but visually as well. While we appreciate that some players might want a slightly different look to the game, we are proud of the visual identity of Battlefield 3 and do not wish to change it."

I apologize for getting anybody’s hopes up, and if you have any further questions on this subject, I will refer back to the above statement.

The blue tint stuff never bothered me as much as other people but having the option to turn it off doesn't seem like a big deal either. It is a really bad precedent to tell the community you're doing something then go back on it, especially when you're an EA subsidiary. Unfortunately this is the only FPS franchise around other than Call of Duty these days.

Exactly, as far as DICE going back on their former claims. I was looking forward to the official blue tint removal personally, as my vision isn't the greatest, and appears to only be getting worse with age. BF3 is hardly the easiest game to see enemies in; poor choice by DICE to stick with the washed out blue look.

I'm almost at my limit for getting crappy gun drops in BL2, was seriously considering a full on return to BF3 until they decided to drop their plans to remove the blue tint... anybody been using the unofficial tint mods for awhile now, and remained unbanned on official servers?
