Would love CCP if you guys added a noise for various fleet broadcasts like the shield/armor/hull warnings Big smile

I agree, there should be an audible warning whenever there is a fleet broadcast. There have been a number of times when i've missed a broadcast because i wasn't sat staring blindly into the fleet window watching for broadcasts.

Also I'd say that they could also make the visual cues for broadcasts easier to see. For my eyes most of the broadcast icons seem too small. They could do to be a bit larger.

Just my thoughts

I'd have a love/hate relationship with this I think. On one hand, I DO really like my Oneiros and Augororororor's. On the other hand, fleet comms can get REALLY chaotic sometimes, even with the most disciplined fleets. Do I want another noise in there making it so I can't hear 'align out?' Do I want another way for that guy to annoy the ENTIRE fleet by spamming 'need armor?'



However, if there was also a toggle option, then THIS could be a VERY useful tool. On a similar note, I know we can toggle/select what broadcasts we see and don't see, but could we color code cap/armor/shield? That'd help the visual quite a bit.

The NPE IS a big deal

Yup, fleet broadcasts can be easily missed in the heat of battle. Any kind of audible prompt to check the fleet broadcast window would be useful.
