This is a serious forum? It's a place to have fun and talk video games. I love the emotes, they are hilarious and great. I am amazed what people choose to get upset about sometimes. Like someone said, they are just emotes.
I agree that they should either be removed or downsized. Whenever I'm trying to hold a conversation in the chatbox and one of those monstrosities bumps my message halfway down, they become nothing more than an annoyance.
When I think of the vast amount of complaints that were made of the Dr Who emotes and the other non Zelda ones for not being Zelda relates emotes little over a year and a half ago. I am not at all surprised to see more complaints of these.
However the extra large size does make them a bit more obnoxious than usual.
