Do you like this?  I do thus far...but just tried it only in co-op.  Think it will help with collisions?

I haven't used it yet but I don't it will help with collisions. I think it is not a good idea to add. I can imagine the spam of it being annoying.

I don't think we're banking on it necessarily improving gameplay (avoiding collisions) but more add some flavor for the holiday season.

Well I like the idea, and Radar_X pass on my thanks for coming up with it. And a way turn off if we want too, I hope it stays after the holiday seasons.

Well in the 1 match I played all were honking at first but then the novelty wore off and it stopped. We shall see.

Probably gonna use it for a day for the novelty and then turn it off via the options.

The Iwaki has some techno buzz, then ho ho ho...

I haven't been in game to try out the horn as of yet.  But I have a feeling that this is going to drive everybody up the wall eventually.  We are probably going to see Rant posts on the forums sooner or later regarding these now honk able horns in game.  If the new button to press for the horn is H, what happened to the ship information that this use to bring up?

I still get the ship information when I press H so I haven't figured out how to sound the horn. Can someone help me out here?

It's the N key by default, not H.

My Edinburgh sounded like a giant dose of Santa flatulence. I then thought back to the video - could we really nuke ourselves from tooting our own horn too much? Kinda like the "too much - go blind" sayings? Hmm... requires some investigation.

After I blast someone I can toot my horn at them for added salt.

Consider how obnoxious we find the 'short boat Captains' that constantly spam chat messages all game long. You'd think they would also tire of hitting that function key, but nope, 10 minutes in they're still hammering away.

 

I see the horns quickly becoming as obnoxious, the only saving grace being we can turn them off. When can we turn off Chat messeges? Can we get a button for that too?

I had no idea what I was hearing at first. I guess I sort of expected a blaring klaxon warning.  However, those subtle wails and "ho ho ho's" sort of added to the holiday ambiance of my matches this morning.

I just wish they'd shrink down some of the unneeded UI things so they aren't in the way of playing, especially when in scope mode.

IIRC, you are limited on how many time you can use it in a brief period.  I don't anticipate much spamming.

I like the horns. Not to be a Scrooge but I could do without the hohoho nonsense after every horn. 

 

I like the different notes- overall it's okay. Like someone else said a bunch of people blast the horn at the beginning and then it tapers off.

There's a cooldown for the horn if i read correct on the patch notes.
