It’s been four weeks since the new emote system launched in Oceania for testing, and tomorrow, it’s going global, according to the official patch notes.
Finally, every player in every region can throw shade at allies, laugh off their own mistakes, and trash talk their enemies in new and creative ways. Well, not that many ways—there’s only going to be 19 emotes available to buy right when the system ships tomorrow, not including the “Thumbs up” emote every player will receive for free or the Worlds emotes.
Granted, 19 emotes should be plenty for a while. Some players will spam “Clean” nearly every time they die or miraculously pull off a cool kill without killing themselves in the process, but there is plenty of space for creative freedom with 18 other emotes.
For example, you can flash the “Does not compute” emote rather than spam pinging your ally when they dive a tower at level two.
Another solid option is showing off the “Catch me if you can” emote while you’re escaping by the skin of your teeth, rather than typing “[email protected]” into all chat. Or, you can do both. We don’t judge.
After buying emotes from the new emote tab of the in-client shop, you can go to your collection to equip them to your emote wheel. If you get sick of, or tilted by, your enemy’s emotes, you can mute them from the interface menu within the in-game options.
All emotes will cost 350 RP when they first ship, but will bump up to their normal price of 450 RP on Nov. 7 when the season ends.
