Hi everyone,

You can now test our new Emote Window on PTS! This new window improves accessibility to emotes with new features such as: Grouping unlocked emotes, an indicator as to whether an emote loops, and more.

Let us know your thoughts below.

Since we're improving emote usage, any chance of adding an "unlock all from collections" for Emotes and other items in collections?

Isn't there already an option for emotes to claim them all?

Isn't that what the new window is for on the PTS? Group unlocking.

Nope. Which is why it is very tiresome to claim all the Emotes for a new character.

I can't figure out how to preview an emote. Example on the PTS I do not have the cartel market emotes but left/right click the cartel emotes opens the cartel, so does CTRL+LEFTCLICK.

I like the infinity symbol for looping a lot very smart.

Could there be a symbol for "does not actually emote anything" like "/oor" Out of Resources? I know you added additional emotes to some of those old no-animation emotes a while ago that was cool.


Looking forward to cataloging the emotes!

Seeing this feedback form fans too:
  • Way to auto-unlock all the emotes you've unlcokeed for all characters in collections instead of one by one in collections window
  • Way to put emotes on bars like toys/abilities (I know this is probably a hard one)

Looks like emotes can only target players now, and no longer NPCs like on live. When I target an NPC, it says e.g. "You wave at everyone." instead of "You wave at Medical Droid."
I hope this is not intended; using emotes on NPCs, companions, pets etc. is very important for both PvE and RP.

Other than that, the emote window looks fine; I dislike that I now have to click multiple times and the submenus no longer open on hover like before.

Most importantly, please remove emotes that are not obtainable. By adding a bar "X/X Unlocked", you imply that all the emotes in that list are unlockable.
This issues already exists with the old emote window but it never was much of a problem; now that you have added the completion bar, it neerds to be addressed. Please remove the emotes that have never been released.

The interface is a little big IMO, but the concept seems solid. I like the additional information of whether or not the emote loops as well, its quite useful.
