Bribing Jon...Battle Cry? (in General)


dnnx June 8 2005 11:18 PM EDT

This Battle Cry thing is still annoying, only one of my minions cries it and not always. I know others feel the same or worse.


Im thinking that since next month is the change month, and since Jon has avoided giving a timetable on fixing it, we can start collecting funds now to bribe Jon into fixing it.[If it is fixable]

Ok, So Who is with me?

some of my battle cries dont work either but it doesnt really bother me anymore. It would be nice to have them but it wouldn't bother me much if we didn't either.

Jason Bourne June 9 2005 1:06 AM EDT

i would love to have mine. i dont care if he yells it everytime one of them dies wether he kills them or not, in fact that would be cool. i just want him to yell it :D

count me in...

QBsutekh137 June 9 2005 1:14 AM EDT

I'll put in if we can get the exclamation points knocked off the end. *smile*

Starseed^Lure June 9 2005 4:52 AM EDT

Excellent point, Chet.
I can't remember who said it, but "2, 4, 6, 8, it's our right to punctuate!"

I'd like to see these fixed right.

sssimmo June 9 2005 5:16 AM EDT

You are quoting "salt3d"
he said that in CB1 i think...

sssimmo June 9 2005 5:24 AM EDT

hehe nope, he said it a couple o' months ago...

salt3d June 9 2005 6:31 AM EDT

SL, that comment was funny only because I used a semicolon.

I've never used battle cries, so from that point of view it doesn't bother me whether they are fixed. I am, however, very pedantic when it comes to punctuation and grammar. ;)

sssimmo June 9 2005 6:35 AM EDT

ha! try living with him!

AdminJonathan June 9 2005 9:08 AM EDT

every time this comes up I say, "show me a reproducible case" and it gets very quiet. :-|

[EG] Almuric June 9 2005 9:34 AM EDT

This is a fight between me and Bartlett. The only one that killed themselves was Mrs. Landingham. Everyone else, Yozan killed. Not once did he utter his battle-cry. And this is just an example. He never yells his battle cry. Naeve, when he kills someone with his dinky little FB, he gets to yell his battle-cry, but never poor Yozan. Poor, poor Yozan. Sad, he is.

sssimmo June 9 2005 9:37 AM EDT

maybe he was born a mute...and can only use sign language?

AdminG Beee June 9 2005 10:02 AM EDT

Most likely not relevant but all the folks complaining about their battle cries not working have some form of punctuation involved.
SoulCalibur and Dnnx both have cries with (!) in them and Almuric has a (,) My cries seem to work when and how they are supposed to and have no punctuation.

PS. Desperado, your battle cries don't work because you don't have any :)

[EG] Almuric June 9 2005 10:10 AM EDT

Just changed it to have no punctuation. Still doesn't work. And Naeve's cry also has a comma and it works when he kills someone.

QBsutekh137 June 9 2005 10:13 AM EDT

I have a period in mine and it works all the time:

Max cries "Chet. Always a pleasure!"

AdminG Beee June 9 2005 10:17 AM EDT

Oh well, it was worth a shot. At least I solved the problem for Desperado though :D

csraven June 9 2005 11:11 AM EDT

first off, that post with an entire battle listed was a waste... im sure you could of gotten your point across without using that... aside from that, is the battle-cry really that important? it doesnt do anything for your team, and it doesnt exactly bring me any satisfaction wether or not my minion uses it...

i would probably be just as happy without it... besides, it would be a little redundent if your minion shouted "my feet smell" or whatever else you put in, every time he made an attack... battle stat sheets would go on forever if that were the case...

so why bribe him to do anything with it?

Phaete June 9 2005 11:58 AM EDT

I can reproduce the absence of a battle cry in at least 20% of my fights vs. Goldminer or toons

It's always my fighter behind my mage that remains silent when he finishes off a half burned opponent.

dnnx June 9 2005 12:22 PM EDT

FYI
Battlecries are supposed to cried only when you defeat a minion, not everytime you attack.

This is what happens, no battlecries, I even tried with no punctuation, and moving them around:
U dont hink I have seen a Battle cry form the tank since Feb.

csraven June 9 2005 12:31 PM EDT

thank you for explaining that the cry only happens when you defeat an enemy... i didn't know that... so yes something needs to be fixed... but again does it really cause a problem?

QBsutekh137 June 9 2005 12:59 PM EDT

No, csraven, it is not a big deal. But Jon has created such a perfect game that the only thing we have left to lament are the little things. *smile*

dnnx June 9 2005 1:04 PM EDT

What he said, it si the only thing that is obviously broken, and has been for some time.
So we are just trying to help Jon perfect the game.

For all we know, this might the reason the N00bs are not sticking around :)

Starseed^Lure June 9 2005 1:44 PM EDT

I think that this is most *obviously* why the noobs aren't sticking around. O.o

spydah June 9 2005 6:44 PM EDT

Reproducable?

So, I kill someone, I get to yell, right?

Spid has never, not once EVER yelled out his battle cry. Feel free to log in and fight anyone on my list, as much as you would like, it won't happen. Or, if you prefer, I'll just copy/paste as many battles as you would like in here.

Obviously this is to Jon :p
