I get the idea of taunts in a PVP game and I have to admit Ronimo's come up with some funny taunts for each nauts.

But after a while they just become aggravating. I've seen people spam taunts FOR THE ENTIRE GAME.

After a while taunts go from a "Get that!" to methodical auditory assault. So how about limiting taunts? Here's a few ideas

Increased taunt cooldown. Make it something like 30 seconds, if not a full minute

Limited number of taunts. You get only say, 6 taunts in a game. After that the taunt button doesn't do squat

Didn't they change muting a while back so that it no longer muted taunts? Or was it that it no longer muted the person in the chat? Some level of functionality was lost and I don't recall if it was ever reverted or not.

If someone is annoying you by spamming taunts, you can either:

  • Deal with it, to be blunt (it is a voice line, not first-degree murder)

  • Mute them so you no longer hear the voice line

Either of those would work.

Increase the time limit on voice commands in general. There is hardly ever a time you're going to need to say "Defend" and "Attack" within 10 seconds of each-other, and those are the only commands that matter.

Better Idea: Mute character voices.

I mean sure, surgically removing your tastebuds because you don't like the taste of spinach is also a solution, but I don't think that's what people would want to do.

I'm pretty sure this person has thought of muting before and wouldn't complain about it here if he actually did it.

What the hell is with this attitude of "just get thicker skin" :chucho:

Being able to mute taunts and other voice commands without muting the chat would be great. There is literally no drawback to it. It's just another customizable feature added into the game.

But the apparent solution for many of you is either to get thicker skin or completely shut off communication with this other person you're playing a game with.

I sincerely don't like that whole attitude and how it's applied here and elsewhere online.
