Bug that could be a cool feature

So when I tried to join an empty server, the UI disappeared and I got this

Just a blank version of the main menu screen with one of my guys. The camera was freely enabled so that I can move it around and look at the guy from all angles like so:

While this is probably just a weird little quirky bug, I think it'd be an awesome idea for an actual loading screen once the game is released. Think about... you load into a 64-man battle, and it takes a few seconds. Instead of a generic spinning pommel phallus or whatever the fuck kind of loading icon would inevitably be placed there, imagine that the picture of your avatar from the main menu zooms out so he/she's in the center of the frame. They pull a badass pose and stand that way until the server loads in, upon which the camera rapidly zooms in on the avatar, flashes to white, and then you get the usual class and team-picking stuff. If you'd like, they can stand in a pre-rendered image of the map you're loading into, and in the corner it could say 'preparing to fight for Grad' or something.

Yes, no?

Nice find, squire! I second this idea, even though it comes from a lowborn.

I'm a little nervous about the pose idea though, could come off too cheesy.
