POLL: Remove BB Reload Horn

Remove The New BB Reload Sound Yes or No?  

160 members have voted

  1. 1. Should WG remove the new reload sound that is used on Battleships?

    • Yes - please remove it asap
    • No - I like it
    • Don't care - I am deaf/indiffferent
    • Keep it - it is so annoying it will reduce BB numbers in MM

So Sub Octavian says they will only consider removing this god awful new BB gun reload horn sound if the demand is there. So I am doing a poll to show the demand is there...

Is it really that bad?

Maybe my sound settings are that odd but I find it barely noticeable, im too busy getting ready and aiming my guns pre-reload to pay attention.

Yeah it really, REALLY bothers me. It is like nails scraping across a chalk board to me. I play mostly BB now too so I hear it over and over and over. I have a really good sound setup on my PC with surround sound speakers so it really is noticeable and it just grates on my nerves to no end. The really annoying part is I can't do anything about it other than shut sound of completely which is bad as you can miss the torp warning noise if you are occupied in a brawl or facing multiple ships. 

I am going to post on Aslains and beg someone to do a mod to disable it. Clearly, from Sub's comments and attitudes this will be like the patches and WG wont budge no matter the outcry so they are here to stay. It literally makes the game almost unplayable for me. I know many won't understand that but it really irritates me.

I've only heard the Richelieu and Dunkerque reload noise, and it's just quiet bell noise, about the same as the telegraph sound effect when you switch speed.

This, it is low level sound that informs you that your guns are ready to fire without looking downwards to the bottom of the screen. It seems that people go out of their way to find things to complain about.

Oh come on...Americans can do much better than a silly buzzer. Use the buzzer for the ARP ships (or a little girl giggling). For American ships we should have a manly man sound. Like the sound you make after someone says "pull my finger". Aka the sound you make when someone says "let 'er rip". The sound you make when you have had way too many beans and weenies. Catch my drift? The sound you hear right after you see grandpa tilt 30 degrees to port or starboard. LOL. If anyone thinks I am loving this post...I AM. :Smile_teethhappy:

Option for "Toggle On/Off"

I didn't add that because Sub's response indicated they can't have everything be a player option (too much for their game client). I am trying to show at least most people don't want this sound which is what he said would "maybe" get them to remove it. Not holding my breath as they are really stubborn about things they come up with that they believe they know better then we do what we want.

It didn't really seem very necessary to me. I could already hear when my guns reloaded, so I didn't really need a little bell to tell me too. Eh, I don't really mind it.

According to the poll, the majority actually either likes it, or it doesn't bother them one way or the other.... personally, I'm completely indifferent to it.

I only notice it maybe 1/4 - 1/3 of the time; usually I am intent on my target and it barely registers.  AFAIK it has historical precedent - as each gun was loaded in the turret a bell would ring in the fire control center to let the gunnery officer know that the guns were ready to fire.  I guess either leave it or make it optional if it really bothers people.  The new horn steam effect, though... that needs to go.  It looks awful.  But that's another thread.

Actually the majority dislike it at 41% while only 30% like it. 25% are indifferent so you can just as easily say they would be as happy if it goes as if it stays.

Probably couldn't care less if it stays or goes, but there already was a 'click' sound that let you know your turret reloaded.

Feels kind of redundant.

I personally like it. The soft "ding" heralds death.
