I had this idea in a dream before sleeping. Instead of having a taunt at one person, you should make it an AoE. Preferably one as big as Dark Lady's ultimate. Of course, you wouldn't be able to do this in the very beginning. You'd need to taunt at least say, 10 people, to increase from 1 person to a small AoE. Possibly 300-400. And every X amount of successful Taunts, it increases the AoE / Range / Decreases the cool down. Now, you may be wondering, why? Well, because so far, a Taunt only gives you "Smackdown." What if you get a Hat Trick? What if you get a Quad Kill? The Taunt is limited, and not as fun as it CAN be. I want to be able to Taunt 5 people at 3,000 range with Behemoth, in a 1,000 AoE. While they're in Tempest's ult. Run in there. Portal key in. And Ult. And get an Annihilation. And have a unique phrase. So, that's about it.
Here's a nice clean list for you.
1. Increased Taunt range and Taunt AoE
2. Taunt Levels / Leveling up [Based on amount of successful Taunts]
3. Different exclamations per X amount of kills, i.e.
- 1 kill. Smackdown !
- 2 kills. Double Smackdown!
- 3 kills. TR-TR-TR-TR-TRIPLE SMACKDOWN!
- 4 kills. Q-Q-Q-QUAD SMACKDOWN!
- 5 kills. SMACKDOWN PARTY!
4. And perhaps maybe even a list of phrases to even CHOOSE from, based on number of kills? And it can be listed in options. For instance, the options would look something like this.
1 kill: [Smackdown] [Humiliation] [Owned] [SMACK!]
2 kills: [Double Smackdown!] [SMACK SMACK!]
3 kills: [Triple Smackdown!] [SMACK SMACK SMACK!]
And Etc. Meaning you can choose which will be activated when you get said amount of kills. That would be a glorious day.
Dialogue is subject to change. Of course.
You need to make pre-ordering kind of a big deal, S2.

I also suggest that no one participate in this vote unless they have a Golden Shield. There will be obvious biases if not.
Very good. I like the whole AOE and range increase.
Adding on to your taunt suggestions:
It would be nice to have some kind of options section for taunts.
You would unlock different kinds of taunts depending on how many kills you have/games you played.
At first you have the basic smackdown...regardless of how many people you kill
At 50 games you can do a "double smackdown"
At 100 games you can do a "triple smackdown"
At 150 ... "quadtriple smackdown"
At 200 ... "Holllllly Sh*****t"
At 300 + you start incrementally getting different options for each tier of smackdown.
For example, at 500 games you'll get "humiliation" which will be an alternative taunt for a single smackdown kill.
Ultimately, each player will have unique taunts set up for each type of kill (single/double/triple/etc.).
This way, each match will have some variety in the taunts and non-shield players could even look forward to seeing what kind of taunts they'll hear.
I like it only because of the fact that I think it'll put more of a fun factor in the game. Besides Ive only ever seen one smackdown and it was in a replay.
"I had this idea in a dream before sleeping"
Can I just ask, how does one have a dream BEFORE sleeping?
Were you just thinking in your bed?
I want this implemented. The other day I got an anihilation and I was only able to taunt the first guy. It would have been so much better to hear something in addition to simply SMACKDOWN.
Yes, i would like to see SOMETHING BIG done to show the fact i pre-purchased to show it off like a jackass every single game. They might not enjoy it so much, but i would.
And as for it being "Dull and empty", what exactly do you mean. Care to explain? Because it seems like you could say that about anything to be honest. When you say "empty" do you mean not a lot of thought was put into it? Because this suggestion has never been made before. And dull, as in "not fun" ? That's all fine and what not since that's your opinion, but you can't honestly tell me that hearing SMACKDOWN ANNIHILATION is as fun as just hearing SMACKDOWN. Unless you barely use your taunt. Then in which case, why are you even commenting on this suggestion? This should only be looked at by people who actually USE the taunt feature and enjoy it. If I never use chronos and don't care for him, then should I go into a chronos suggestion thread and say that it's "Dull and empty"? No, I should ignore the chronos suggestion thread, and if not, then I should at least not put my opinion towards it. I'm looking at your taunt stats right now, and you barely use them lol. No wonder you aren't for this idea.

danielvutran, I'm thinking the reason he wrote that comment is because of his post on a the same topic: http://forums.heroesofnewerth.com/sh...ad.php?t=96786
...you should add color to make it less dull???
Both of these threads are good suggestions and are worthy of up votes.
It's understandable that he chooses to down vote this one and up vote his. However, Es`Chuck, you should realize that the more up votes this GENRE gets, the more likely it is to spark some kind of change. Irregardless of whether you like the exact taunt changes, you're being hypocritical by taking the same idea and making another thread on it (Yes, this thread preceded your own).
[DBD]Syrdust, THANK YOU!!
How do you view how many times someone has used taunt?
