Discord, some hours ago, decided to notify all global emote server owners that they'll basically be losing their global emotes. So far so good.
On the long list of features none asked for, yet still got implemented or removed from discord, this is another one of those.
Although I can somewhat understand the reasoning of global emotes being hard to maintain because of the broken integration, there was no other issue mentioned in the DM.
That said, even tho their most probably is a financial aspect behind the decision, yet still has not been mentioned to be existing, I wonder if there can be anything done to actually fix that "maintaining issue", while still giving the communities that built around of GW-Global-Emotes years ago the emotes they paid for - in the first place.
GW-Emote Clones directly trough discord itself.
That shouldn't be too much of an issue, fixing all of the mentioned problems, yet still allowing people to use global emotes.
X Global Emote slots at maximum boost level.
Literally. Discord earns so much money out of boosts, considering how popular they are. Give something actually beneficial in return, something everyone can profit of.
There's a lot of things connected with this topic. None asked for a removal of global emotes, none (probably) would complain if there would be such a solution - as I mentioned above.
While I understand that discord doesn't owe anyone anything and the deal between gamewisp and discord has ended long time ago, still, global emotes are a thing a lot, if not most of the average discord consumers like & profit from.
It's most obvious that this is also related to a somewhat financial aspect. But please, for once, listen to the backlash A LOT of people are giving right now - because literally the majority of people profited from it.
