    The buff designs look exactly like the buffs in the photograph. I’d say it looks real. How do you get these sort of things? I’m always amazed!

  • Tiaan

    Someone usually create the Buffs based on what they see on the season preview.They do,however,slightly differ from the original buffs

  • Trintex

    Also, is that a pink buff next to the Vanua buff? Is that the merge buff or maybe a Bayon buff or what? Pink would be a disappointing merge color since they are already using red and purple.

    • Martin Holmes

      It’s the Bayon buff from S31.

        Thank goodness. Thank you for the clarification!

    I like the fact that it’s more of a non-traditional colour mix (red and purple) just like teal and pink were in Second Chances. More of this, survivor – I’m tired of seasons where the buffs are red/yellow/blue with a Black or Green merge buff. So predictable. The early seasons used to mix up colours so much more, and I prefer it by far.

  • Trintex

    So were these buffs early concept designs? I could have sworn they were real when I saw the picture of the physical buffs but the official designs prove these buffs to be inaccurate. ???

    • Martin Holmes

      Maybe just fan-made designs.
