    Default I'd like to see funny death announements in warfronts.

    I know things have gotten pretty tense with the nerf threads so lets try and ease the tension a bit. What kinda of funny death announcement would you like to see?

    I vote "is a backpeddlers" upon death when a player dies do to back peddling instead of kiting.

    LOL ^^^^^^ this right here. If I had a plat for every bunnyhopping death I've had I'd be the richest Motherf***er in Telara.

    I think Face planter would be a good one to. Someone that dies multiple times in a row without getting any kills or being a savior.

    Sometimes the warfront announcement system gets hacked by the storm legion or the annoucer herself is hostaged by the endless and Matron Verosa takes over the 1MC.

    She'd go

    'Player x' died!
    'Player x' died again! followed by a maniacal laugh.
    'Player x' is fail!

    And if you don't move for about 40 sec she'd announce you're afk.
    She'd also make a lot of misleading and sometimes outright lie announcement such as "Big Inc - Dex!"

    Someone falling to their death would be funny.

    "X has slipped off a cliff and broke their pelvis!"

    I back peddle sometimes, im also guilty of keyboard turning. As long as im having fun, i honestly cant say i care if people call me bad for it. Its a habit from another game which i cannot break.

    As far as announcements, i'd like to see 'xxxxx got hit by the pain train' when dieing after hits from 4 or more players at once. Or 'xxxx got trolled' when the fall damage buff in Library fails.

    There are some rare situations where backpedaling is necessary but keyboard turning? Its never good. Likewise I have 90% of my skills bound but there are a few I use regularly that I have to click for my own sanity (and not just the ground target ones).

    As for death announcements?

    "XXX was telefragged!" (when you die during the act of teleporting/warping) this seems to happen to me alot since I use my riftstalker warp to get out of situations and it always looks hilarious when you die during the act of it.

    I mouse turn on the run using alternate keybinds for a limited number of skills. My left hand is damaged and lacks dexterity since an accident so i struggle to hit lots of different keys with it sometimes. Tends to be worse when its cold and since im in England....

    This is actually a great idea!

    That backpeddling one had me laughing irl. It's funny coz it's true!

    I think it would be awesome, especially someone like me falling from height, 3/4 dead only to cark it with the message "Thamuz has cratered!" ala Quake.

    Now that would be good for a giggle, surely.

    Its not that bad, More an inconvenience than anything else. Just fine motor skills are kinda crap due to nerve damage. They were severed and repaired but never gonna be perfect.

    Heh, wonder if you are who i think you are... RG?
