If this particular idea has been thrown around already or is already present in-game, forgive me, but I haven’t seen or found such. If mods believe this belongs into some other already existing thread on the subject as a whole, feel free to move it.
Anyway, what I’m here to ramble about :
I’ve been thinking of some idea for this type of emote where your character basically calls out from support to others if you use it. Imagine this, you’re playing one of your CQC classes, or just a class not best suited to handling multiple big enemies, and the game decides that two Boomshot Scions come your way and you throw your first flash at the first one, but the other shows up shortly afterwards and your second flash either misses, gets eaten by the void or only stuns one of both. Naturally, you’re not going to charge either down unless you have an EMBAR at hand or are an Infiltrator with Cloak and position yourself in a way to get both in one go. Or you have a desire to get yourself killed by them.
So what do you do? Well, certainly there is a point to be made that you can use a mic, but I don’t think most people do with randoms especially, and stopping to type in text chat when said Boomshot Scions may decide to move up on you also isn’t the greatest idea(and people may have it turned off or it simply is not working for them). So I thought having this type of emote or whatever you wanna call it could be a potentially rather useful addition for quick callout that you need help, if TC even bothered to put it in at this point. And, as I alluded to in the beginning paragraph, if it doesn’t already exist. This is also just an example situation, you can of course apply the same to a Bastion shielded Warden charging down your lane while the shield bot is hiding somewhere out of sight and you’re not a class that really benefits from keeping a Boomshot around, and many others situations.
Thoughts? And yes, people may still not pay attention but sometimes they actually do.
