can't relate to people finding "no gesture before the duel" irritating, personally.
in hopes of not coming off as elitist:
I think that's a bit of an "inexperienced" player's mindset.
I was like that when I first started to pvp, bowing before every single duel. but in reality you can commit to that only for so long. too many (unaware?) chuggers, toxic players, players who think it's redundant and a waste of time, etc. so that you'll end up thinking of it as redundant yourself eventually.
this absolutely doesn't apply to gesturing post-duel though. e.g. I'll always bow if I thought the duel was great and I wouldn't have minded a rematch, or curl up if I accidentally killed a player who wanted to stop and I didn't realize they had no ToD or something. what's actually irritating is when you give your all against a person whom you (in worst case) kinda admire and he just points down/throws poop at you
