So yesterday I thought about a way to increase the emotes from 4 to 16 and the post got really high on Reddit. Today I made a simple infographic with some UI ideas for this advanced emote system. I'm not saying is the best, only way to enhance communication on Destiny... it's just my small contribution on this topic, because we definitely need more communication. ;) [b]Types of emotes[/b] We're going to need at least 2/3 different typologies of emotes: 1. Long animations in third person view, viewable by the player (like the current ones). 2. Short animations in first person, viewable by the player, with audio cues (similar to the one in Battlefield when you spot someone and you see your hand pointing). 3. No animations viewable by the player (only the other players can see your gesture), audio feedback. Actually 2/3 could be the same type. Basically, type 1 actions are intended to be used in low danger situations, for entertainment, while type 2/3 are more tactic and don't require switching to third person view. [i]Note:[/i] I'm not saying, in any way, that this should replace voice chat. [b]Last Edit:[/b] I believe it's already too late for Bungie to implement a feature like this (or a commo rose) but the message for Bungie is very clear: people WANT more ways to communicate with other guardians. We want an easier way to voice chat with friends and also more emotes to interact with strangers. It wouldn't be that impossible for Bungie to work on these features and add them to a future DLC (2015?). Please Bungie, consider this topic! As a compromise, a first step could be add (as many people commented) a simple 8 emotes system, adding a double tap + direction on top of the system in place right now. Double tapping the dpad is definitely not that weird
