    Also there's an icy breath effect added when the character breathes out along with the wind and snow.

    Hard to see if you have the winter presence shoulders and already snow flakes around you. At least this time this new emote is NOT the reward for the new meta achievement. Whoohoo.

    Praise Joko! And Bangar, we need to talk!

    If it still isn't on a reward track for PvP and/or WvW, nothing has changed and thus it's still not worth any attention.

    I find it a rather lazy design. Out of the countless emote potential they decided to reuse a recent one and add a bit of frosty breath to it. Its really uneventful.

    If it were done when ’tis done, then ’twere well it were done quickly. That but this blow might be the be-all and the end-all—here.

    That's just ANET testing things out in game, rather than using any degree of forward-thinking to determine probably outcomes for their decisions. You'll note that since /rockout, none of the released emotes have appeared in the reward tracks, but could only be earned by completing the meta achievement .

    And that's the problem.
    Anet could easily use them as incentives for people to repopulate PvP a bit.
    There is no meaningful reason behind barricading emotes behind Meta Achievements.
    The people who would grind their brains out to complete that achievement anyway will complete it and nearly everyone else won't complete it.
    And then there also are the people who have strong negative opinions about Arenanet due to this.

    There is not a sliver of an upside for Arenanet to do it, but a big downside for many players.
