  • Am I the only one who thought the taunts in AoC were actually quite irritating? :|



  • @TheNarrator:

    Am I the only one who thought the taunts in AoC were actually quite irritating? :|

    Yes! lol.

    “MOVE!”



  • @smokey:

    “MOVE!”

    That is the objective of a “taunt” so mission accomplished



  • Well, a taunt isn’t all that irritating, it’s just that they were so horribly spammed in AoC that the humour in them was completely replaced by irritation for me. They were no longer funny, and really started breaking the atmosphere. The problem was that there was no reason to not taunt all the time.

    I’d suggest that taunts get an animation which freezes your character in place while taunting for about a second. Not too long, but enough to stop mindless spamming of taunts so people will use them when it’s appropriate, like after completing an objective, after killing an enemy or just before engaging into combat.

    You mean like Unreal tournament “taunts” where the char “air humps” and such ?



  • @Dussan:

    It doesn’t necessarily include air humps :P. That would look ridiculous. But, I don’t know, your character raising his arm, or clashing his sword and shield together, or whatever. The animation doesn’t matter all that much, the idea is that you can’t move for a second when you taunt, so it’s less attractive to spam taunts all the time.



  • Lol, just make some of the more basic taunts without an animation.

    I love saying “No !” to the guys chasing me when I have the battlegrounds bridge board right before stabbing their eye out. I do a lot of in-combat taunting, so Im not sure it’s a good idea to make them animated. Also, archers looking for easy taunting targets?

    It’s not as if you’d be frozen in place long enough for an archer to actively target you. It would probably take less long than it would for an archer to nock and draw an arrow. I could live with simple taunts still being without movement penalty, but then again, nothing guarantees that these won’t be spammed, so I’d prefer if every taunt had a short stun.



  • A good longbowman/crossbowman doesnt really need more than one second to adjust his shot…

    Even a crus/hk with their throwables would find it a lovely easy target.



  • maybe a moving animation like how the crusader salutes with his sword on the aoc launch video or that guy on the alpha trailer could pull his helmet visor down with a nod?



  • @-Slash-:

    Well, I think that’s a fairly reasonable risk to take if you want to taunt. I’m not against taunts, but they were spammed so horribly in AoC that I really prefer to see their use reduced, and this is a perfect way to discourage tauntspam without punishing it so hard that it won’t be used anymore.

    Besides, suddenly adjusting your aim with a bow should result in a temporary drop in accuracy (wider ‘crosshair’, only without the crosshair), in my opinion. But that’s not really related to the topic.

    @Campin:

    The animation is optional to me, the temporary immobility is what the suggestion is about.



  • @TheNarrator:

    the temporary immobility is what the suggestion is about.

    nah i’m meaning you could still move whilst saluting oor whatever, but yeh ur right hearging we need archers for a whole game gets boring eventually so forcing SOME taunts to force immobility would be useful
