And have people abuse it online until they get a level 3.
No thank you
Who would let someone taunt over 60 times in one match anyway? I like the idea, encourages taunting instead of T-bagging.
Interesting idea. I like taunts contributing more than animation but granting AP would undermine those characters that have passive AP generating moves, like Toro, and Parapa. Instead, how about taunting yields more BP or RP if you win. It wouldn't change the game play any and it makes sense. If you spend time to taunt you're either willfully giving up AP gain, giving your opponent an opportunity to strike or just killed all your enemies. In any case you're establishing yourself as better than others, hence the more you do the bigger your reward if you win.
It would also provide incentive to use the taunts instead of those asinine victory squats people love to do.
I have no problem with this idea. 10 AP isn't a lot, but it could be epic if it was the AP you needed to get a level 3. It would encourage it safely since people who spam taunts would get steamrolled by someone like me who would love a huge window of opportunity for them getting a puny 10 AP.
