Dynamic Taunts

This is where all random discussion about AotZ goes. If it doesn't feel like it fits anywhere else but is still related to the map, this is the place to post it.

Dynamic Taunts

Would the taunts say something about the assister as well? Like if Scamp killed Arke, assisted by Janise "THE BIG TREE IS DOWN THANK YOU REDDY LADY!"

The more dynamic they are, the more impossible they are to code in order to make dynamic. That's all I'll say.

So right now it's a combination of two strings, I guess.

Right now they aren't even in the map. The reasoning is because I'm not sure how complicated I even want them to be.

Well...

Picture a 15 vs 15 map. Like, 15 heroes. For every kill possible, every hero would need 15 different taunts. Unless I'm failing at math, that's about 500 taunts to create.

Now add the fact that you could team with 1 other person. That's what, 25000 taunts possible? lolololol.

Now try 2 assists!

So it's ok.

I know that it's easy to do, but it's a pain in the ass to create once you have more than 5 heroes per side.
