Traversing the Reikland can be a bit hectic now and then and you don’t always have the time to look at the chat when someone on your team is communicating through the Social Wheel.
Therefore, I propose having the character you are playing as actually say the thing you select.
This can be anything from Bardin saying “This is the path, Dawri.” when selecting “Come Here!”, to Kerillian passive-aggresively saying “No, of course I don’t need help. Idiots.” when selecting “Help!”.
The thing that was selected will still be shown in the chat in case you missed what they said over the screams of the ratmen. There will also be a cooldown (around 10 - 15 seconds give or take) between voicelines to prevent spam.
Voicelines triggered through the Social Wheel will also have less priority than other voicelines, and will be cut off early if you tag something or a horde is incoming (just to give a few examples).
New voicelines for the characters might need to be recorded, though I distinctly recall the characters already having voicelines similar to those in the Social Wheel, just with hitherto no way to manually activate them.
As an added bonus, my absolute favourite part about the game is hearing the Ubersreik 5 (4? Doesn’t matter) interact with each other, so just the tiniest extra voiceline here and there makes the experience all the more enjoyable.
Though, this is all just my own opinion. Would any of you guys be for or against having the characters say what you select in the Social Wheel?
- Yes, let them speak their mind.
- No, can’t stand them talking.
(Also, this is my first topic on the forums, so feel free to tell me if the poll got messed up or I posted in the wrong place or whatever.)
