I’ve wonder if there is a shortcut definition to each emote animate the players can all relate to or use for those who choose to not chat during games. I wonder if there is a general consensus of what each one the community uses each one for.
Example, I use the following emotes for the following reasons:
Opps = 1) When I made a mistake, 2) When my hand hits on the board (on the flop) after I fold a weak hand, 3) When a player “repeated” drags out the time clock for every hand, 4) When I want to say, WTF.
Applause = 1) When a player makes a good bet or play, 2) When a player calls my bluff, 3) When I player folds to my strong winning hand/bet, 4) When a player had a good hand 5) General overall “good job”.
Celebrate = 1) When that actions on the table is entertaining to watch, 2) When I dodged a bullet and avoided losing all my chips.
Happy Dance = 1) When I folded my hand against a winning hand, 2) When I believe I made a good call or fold.
Magic Trick = 1) When a player doesn’t have a winning hand and finally hits on the river despite the odds stack against the player based on bets from other players. 2) When a player doesn’t have a winning hand (on the flop) but still wins with running turn and river (magic trick).
Air Boxing = I particularly don’t use it, but I believe people you it as 1) To say, “It’s On!” or “Bring it!”
Throat Slit = I think people use this when they are pissed off. Or want to pay a player back. Quite frankly, poor choice of emote if politeness is what game developers want.
Finger Gun = 1) When I knock out/bust multiple players at once.
Wave = 1) When I accept defeat and saying “bye”. 2) When I am done playing in casual games and about to leave. 3) I think people use it when a player they want to lose bust-out. It is a way to say “Bye, Felicia” or something of that matter.
I don’t use “Table Bounce” or “Chip Flip”. Not sure what that says or represents. My use is best guess if and when I use it.
Any idea of what other use it for? It may shed some light on what others are trying to say.
