Why is it that we lost our upper hand proc laugh? Why do Powertechs still have theres it makes me angry when they laugh at me all the time when they chase u round the map burning you and laughing the whole time either remove the Power tech laugh or bring back my upper hand proc laugh. So I can laugh at them while I heal myself

I have nothing against audio for the proc, but at least make it something other ppl can disable. the scoundrel healer on my first guild was laughing almost non-stop the whole raid. it was annoying as all heck. on the other hand, other pyros/assaults don't bother me one iota (whether I'm on the assault or not).

in short: an audio cue is fine. just...less annoying or something that can be disabled w/o messing up other sounds.

edit: I believe the proc on pyros was knocked back twice, once before I used him and once afterward (I think I picked mine up in 1.2/3; he was just a tank/tactics pve before then). anyway, 6s cd on proc. if the pyro saves his rocketpunch, though, it's almost a guarantee after the cd is up. those numbers are all top of m'head, and I don't care to look it up atm.

Yeah. I know playing pyro spec, it made it a lot easier to know the proc due to the laugh. They need things like that as improvements to a lot of procs for several classes IMO. just make it to where only you hear it for crying out loud. Of all the idiotic things they address, I don't know how they continue to make things worse in so many ways.

Good news everyone! Upper Hand and Tactical Advantage proc laugh/giggle is coming back in 2.0! Your Scoundrel or Operative will now chuckle most heartily when they gain their first UP/TA when they previously had zero. Before we took it out completely the sound was playing every time you gained an UP/TA and was really spamming everyone with their infectious chortles. I really miss the giggle so Im glad we are bringing it back, hope yall enjoy it as well!

Cheers!

could we get some hints as to whether 2.0 is the next patch? or are we going to go through 1.8 and 1.9?
