Own ship explosion sound

   Is there any hope that WG will change the volume of your own ship explosion back down where it used to be?  This is such a childish thing.  The  game goes along fine until  "KABOOM". Then I get yelled at by everyone in the house to "Turn the ^&*#%  sound down" and I can't blame them. It's way beyond necessity. I tried headphones, but mine are studio quality and it actually hurts when this happens.  Now, as an adult, I pretty much know what my ship explodes.  I don't need to be deafened when it does. This is a kiddy need thing.  Kids have a need to have this.  They think overdone graphics and firecrackers in your ears are cool.  

This needs to be turned back a notch or at least give us a slider control for own ship explosions. Does anyone agree?

Sincerely,

RockChunker

Go back to the headphones....

Also, the volume compensation checkbox in the in-game Audio section...

@RockChunker If you have the volume turned up enough to draw complaints from others and such that headphones hurt! Turn down the volume! Simple! My work here is done.

ok, the volume compensation checkbox did NOT affect JUST the own ship explosions.  It kind of affected some others too.

I'm talking about just the "Own Ship Explosions" as I stated, not the whole volume level. And no, your work was not done.

Did you not read the part about studio quality headphones?  These are quite capable of hurting your ears when some punk DEV thinks its funny to insert a 20Db gain for 1 second.

You need to wait till you have a full HP detonation.

You'll probably be able to sue for hearing loss then.

I detonated a full hp  Prinz Eugen a while back, right after the new effects happened (shooting with an Amagi at like 18.5 km), guy said it knocked him out his chair.

The sound sliders could be a whole lot better.

You either get deafening citadel hit sounds and ship explosions, or you get nothing.

Too many things linked to that one slider.

I want ambient sounds, but I don't want deafening roars when I die or give or receive a citadel hit.

This isn't hard.

There’s not one specifically that says that, it could be that this sound of your ship blowing up is in one of the game sounds..or not  sorry do not know which one, I don’t pay much attention to the sound of my ship blowing up cause I’m usually saying ..OH SHlT!!!!
