Hey, friends.

Super quick. We heard you on the new sound effect introduced in yesterday's patch and we're disabling it as of tomorrow's downtime while we take a second look at it's purpose and design.

Thanks for the feedback. And for anyone who really likes the new effect - you have until tomorrow to record it.

Why not a configurable option?

Thank you!

If I can offer a suggestion, it would be that the prominence of the sound should be inversely proportional to the frequency with which it is played. You would not play the hull alarm every time your ship was hit! It would drive you to insanity.

Consider that there is already a perfectly good explosion.

Sounds good. Cool

On a more serious note, thanks for doing this. Was pure torture in a pve environment.

I don't have a problem with an OPTIONAL notification of a kill, but not the gong, please not the gong :)

i would prefer to change the gong to somehing more simpler sush beep , splash , or gunshot
or simply attach the gong to sound settings so we can turn it off or keep it on, or just control volume so we can do it little silence . as for the entire gong the sound is OK. but we should have option to turn it off removing entire feature because of player outcry is kinda stupid choice.

Can you just make it optional until you change it to something different? I loved this effect, and so did some others, made PVE feel a lot more cool. CCPLS

Thx for listening.

Please consider to put toggle for at least "cosmetic" features in the future.

We should be able to choose what we want to hear/see at least for the things that does not affect even ground for PVE or PVP or every activity in the game.

Hey, I like the Gong...

I treat it like the old "Gong" show. "Nice try, thanks for playing..." (gong!)

Just need to queue up some old fashioned T Rex

It has to go in its entirety. The cross, the red flashy thing.... just bring back the old effect. It was ok!
