Weekly BF

I wish there was a "good game" mechanic.

There are a couple threads live now regarding taunting, and it reminds me of something I wish could be easily integrated into the existing game mechanics.
Generally speaking, I don't taunt and I find it pretty juvenile. The one exception I make is sometimes on Cavalry engagements; I made level 50 cavalry early on in the game release, and I think I'm pretty good at it. So it's sooooo annoying how Cav vs Cav is such a crap shoot; when you go head to head it's often a circling dogfight just like an air fight, and when two cavalry swords swing you can pretty much just roll the dice as to whether the level 50 or the level 0 rider will die.
So after I've engaged another experienced rider, pulled out all my tricks and come up the winner, I will occasionally drop the loser a medpack.
But the thing is: I DON'T ALWAYS MEAN IT AS A TAUNT. Sometimes, after an intense duel, it's kind of a show of respect. I won this one, but here's a salute.
And if I remember correctly, chivalry was still kind of a "thing" in WWI. I *think* it was the old movie Blue Max, where they were burying a KIA pilot, and the enemy pilot flew over the funeral, and instead of firing he dropped a bouquet in respect?
I know I'm just daydreaming, but wouldn't it be cool if when you dropped an ammo or health on an enemy you've killed, their game would render a bouquet, or a sword, or some other sign of respect? Who knows? Might even cut down on some of the taunting.
Yes, yes. I know. Will never happen. But a kid can dream.

    I guarantee that every person you dropped a med pack on thought it was a taunt.

    probably. But the vast majority probably never saw it either, since Cav can't be revived and it takes a few seconds to ride back to the scene of the crime.

    Good idea. Some kind of honorable salute. Maybe a proper burial and a few words. lol.

    I usually toss a med pack after tbagging so they clean up

    More keys to toggle would be welcome, if it's on the commo rose...

    You can always take your shovel and hit the ground beside your enemy's corpse, so he thinks you are digging a grave for him.

    I'm sure that would work.

    I believe one quick knee next to the corpse would send that signal.

    That can be seen as an incomplete teabagging. Like, you were about to dip but then your brain died.

    I like that. "I hurt you my man, I hurt you. Let me fix it".

    I think the 'sexy man pose' could be a bit of a salute.

    I agree though, I wish here was a way to signal an enemy player that you respect them and the fight you just had.

    And you know they're insta-skipping so if you do it quick he may see it.

    If we ever adopt emoticons like that "other game," we should get a genuine salute.

    If I win a melee fight even though I feel like I shouldn't have, I'll commrose a "Sorry." However, that's about the most you can do.

    Chivalry, the term comes from Chevalier (Cavalier) which in turn comes from Cheval (horse).

    Unsurprisingly this suggestion comes from a Cavalry player.
