@  dr3ad : (01 November 2019 - 10:26 PM)

We updated to 8.2.5 as we had some issues due to Blizzcon today removing 8.2.0 version from their content delivery network and hence half of people getting "Streaming error". We will post new 8.2.5 Wow.exe in couple of minutes, you just need to drag it into your existing RPHTiny/_retail_ folder.

So for the longest time, we had emotes like /nod, /shrug, /no and the like only doing their animations without flooding the chatbox with stuff like 'X nods.'

 

Why was this reverted to the way it's done on retail?  Please tell me this isn't intended.

Yes, that's the point of this question.

 

Why did you fix it when it I saw very few complaints about it (if any at all)?

 

Edit: Thinking more on it, it just seems like a misallocation of time when there are other, and considerably more requested features to fix.

It was likely an easy fix, and there were a few complaints, but we stopped complaining after Dread partially fixed the emote system to allow us to /e <stuff>. If it's fixed wholly now, that's jolly good. I imagine Dread figured out how to fix it while working on the WoD stuff we're upgrading to, and decided to apply it as there's presumably still some time until we upgrade.

If someone wants to spam chat he will do it nontheless. Either way, I'll make it non-spammable.

To be honest yeah the ability of chatting itself is the ability to spam chat. Even the ability of /e is the ability to spam chat. They can just make a macro. I don't see any reason to limit the ability to emote - if you do that, you might as well place a cooldown on talking as well, and you can see how ridiculous that is.

Why not simply revert the fix of /nod showing 'x nods.'?

 

Surely that'd be easier than coding some sort of spam-prevention?

 

Of course, in moments after-post this edit I feel I should put a specific statement:

 

I am using /nod as an example.

I don't see anyone else wanting it to be reverted other than you.

You can always filter /e in your chat log in order not to see it.

I was offering examples of things that are perhaps more important (to some) than /nod getting its emote text back.

 

However, as I have no power to offer anything else, I'm dropping the matter.  Feel free to lock the thread.

To begin with, you do not even know ANY fact in reality how or why it's been fixed. So shut your filthy mouth up bitch, like you know anything.

I personally appreciate the / emotes being fixed, its really nice and kind of adds to the mood for quick and easy use of emoting, so you can do things like /eyebrow for "You raise your eyebrow suspiciously" instead of needing to type it out in a more detailed emote, theres nothing WRONG with it.

 

I've never seen someone ever spam or take abusive advantage of these commands, I think you're harping on nothing tbh, let Dread do his stuff, hes only after our best interest.

 

I doubt he enabled it thinking "Haha, people can spam this now, this'll ruin everyone's day! Hahahaha!" He more than likely was thinking it would be of use and more convenient for us and along the lines of "this would be something nice for the server"

 

Honestly Dread's outburst was justified, you're kinda just ragging on him like a spoiled kid not getting the exact color of Iphone they want for christmas at the moment, man.

Why is spam a concern for emotes? I don't understand the problem; if someone wanted to spam there's a million other ways to do it than spamming /nod or another emote.

So instead of, say, fixing quoting on the forums, or say... Weapon sheaths.  You decide to do something pointless that nobody was asking for.

 

I asked and so did others, but we were patient and stopped when we knew that Dread was aware of the issue.

 

Doing /nod without an emote is stupid, you know why? Most people are watching the chat for what's happening (like emotes) not the animations of the character in front of them.

You know how many times I've seen a conversation sit in awkward silence and then suddenly the embarrassing moment when one mentions to the other that they emoted a response- And said person just didn't see it?

 

And a lot of non-english speaking(as a first language I mean) players especially rely on the easier emotes like /eye or /eyebrow etc to help them keep up with the flow of RP.

 

 

 

So shut yer trap nub, and stop complaining about shit that's so utterly pointless. "Oh, something got fixed QQ"

Announce is the worst fucking spam, more-so than ANY emote or talking aspect. Why not complain about that?

Because you can toggle it. Same like fucking /emotes.

By the way, it's "Raises eyebrow inquisitively", Kenyon.

And I emote spam without any of those.

 

Macro

/e breathes in

/e breathes out

 

 

Yeah, I'll show you fucking spam mate- People can testify to it.
