    Waving, bowing, prostrating (falling onto the floor with both legs and bringing your head to your knees), praising the sun (hands up in a V), and one-leg kneeling (praying) are friendly or signs of respect. Just about everything else is a taunt.

    Edited to add praise the sun.

    prostration you could think of though as a taunt too I'd say, depends when it gets used.

    As does a wave, if its after death it starts approaching taunt, but any time before its fine.
    "Well what is it!", "Shrug", "Look skyward","Point down" are the worst taunts imo.

    When someone's waving after he killed me I really never know if he's taunting or just means it like "farewell" or something... but I rather tend to see it as a taunt, I don't know...

    Just bow. Can't go wrong with it. Anything else leaves room for imagination, minus those that are certainly an insult.

    My favorite imaginative taunt is 'proper bow' while facing away from them, a 'Kiss my a**' sort of thing.

    its a facepalm, a sort of exasperated 'god what a n00b." gesture.

    The biggest insult gesture imo is bowing after you just 3v1 gang banged some one, as if saying "good duel" or bowing after chain back stabbing.

    What I hate is how they do the Well? What is It? Or the point down or up after 3v1.

    I would only use the point upward if the killing blow was with a BKGS heavy attakc that launches them into the air, it's just too good of a chance at humor to resist.
    The prostration seems like a taunt too, if they do it where you died, its like they are mocking you.

    The japanese see the prostration as apologising though.

    I've used Prostration before when some one was incredible and I win out of luck or something. I usually send them a message too if it says they speak English on their profile.

    I have to agree with you guys, nothing, and I mean nothing, pisses me off more than everyone bowing after a 3v1 insta-gangbang. Just for them to act like they have one shred of honor is infuriating to me. It's so damn ironic that it's not even funny. Just lame.

    Ya I hate when they use "well what is it" after you fight a 3v1 and lose.

    How is that relevant? he was talking about bowing after a gangbang, not "well what is it?" silly I honestly don't care if gang bangers do "rude" gestures after i die, its expected. But if they bow, or use prostration (to me it kinda looks like they're falling on their knees laughing and saying "holy *** that was so easy!!") i will lose my **** :evil:

    i take the bow as a compliment only if i killed at least 1. otherwise i camp near boss with an orb and hope for another chance. though, to be fair, most every gesture angers me in any mostly one-sided situation. bows after 30 sec 1v1 fights which ended in me being mauled are just as irritating.

    If its 1on1 I see it as being polite. Unless you prefer looking skyward.

    no. its just that any loss on my part is shameful and any gesture on their part only makes me feel worse, hence irritation. i don't blame them, i'm irritated with myself.
