This is a semi-serious thread, and must NOT be viewed as a priority to the devs, because we all hate lagging out, right?

A duel animation is animation dedicated to a specific unit killing another specific unit, showing off that you have Chaos, that your character won, and catching the eyes of the other player (and yours). An example is the Juggerknight killing a Swordswrath. The Jug slashes his axe down on the Swordswrath's head, lifts him up, and slams him down onto the earth, impaling himself on his sword.

(1) Shadowrath VS Spearton - Shadowrath win

The Shadowrath jabs his staff on the Spearton's pressure point, making him immobile for a split second, and cloaks. He uncloaks behind the Spearton, guts him, and tosses him aside.

Another idea is a bunch of cloak/uncloak stuff where he kicks around the poor Spearton till he falls.

(2) Juggerknight VS Spearton - Juggerknight win

You know how the Spearton kill Juggy thing begins, right? They shield bash each other and the Spearton jumps up and stabs him through the neck. Well it starts out by bashing each other, but this time Mr. Jug jumps up, and slams his axe down so had it sticks the Spearton into the ground, where Jug has to pull the axe out from his head to keep fighting.

(3) Swordswrath VS Crawler - Swordswrath win

The lil' sword guy swings his arm under hand, bringing the point up the crawler's belly, and swipes his blade, so that the crawler flies into the ground.

(4) Shadowrath VS Swordswrath - Shadowrath win

The Shadowrath jabs his pole up into the Swordwrath's neck, where he is left hand, and is stabbed by the ninja's sword, and then is flipped around (the ninja is flipping the staff in front of him in a circular motion, as if blocking invisible bullets or something) until he falls onto the ground.

That's it! Feel free to post your own.

NO. Please. Duel animations are OP enough. Who would win? 1 archer and a spearton vs 5 swords? spearton and archer (if you have gold membership) because of that dumb move where the spearton kills sword, its invincible. Archer still deals damage. Unfair.

Make the 5 swords go after the archer first.

The current bug with the units becoming immortal while the animation is going off, is being looked at. There is a problem though, if they don't become immortal, then they die with the other unit, as soon as the animation is done.

I agree with Tecness. Making the unit vulnerable while doing the finisher move is highly unfair. Let's have a JuggerKnight finishing a swordwrath. The juggerknight will be slaughtered by other units while he can't defend himself because he's too busy throwing his axe at the swordwrath's face.

Did any of you read the part where I explicitly state IF NOT FOR FUN ONLY? Heck, it's even in the title! And these were just some fun ideas, but in competitive play I find animations distracting. This is far from a priority, this should be actually somewhere near redesigning fonts in the to-do list.

I see your point. But, with the only one animation of spear vs sword, it's making quite a ruckus like others say

I didn't say make them be able to be hit while in animation. I want there to be NO animation (at least for ranked battles, because sometimes those animations change the tides of the battle, ex 10 swords with rage vs 1 spearton (this guy has membership) and 3 archidons... Swords can chase archidons in this case, but they can kite, and once the spearton is done he'll just attack the sword without being attacked, but the point is, what if someone forgot to set the swords on archidons, or just a-moved and went to the bathroom XD)
