I really miss the giggle so Im glad we are bringing it back, hope yall enjoy it as well!

Cheers!

**** they answered.... Even though I would have loved for answers to so many other posts out there, it is really refreshing to know that they do somewhat pay attention and listen to the community...

Any chance sorcerers or snipers get some sort of attack like this?

Great news. The laugh is win. You just have these two posts so I'm thinking BW recently allotted you hours to roam the forums? (if so we appreciate it). Either way we hope to see more of you Alex. Its been feeling like we're discussing some of this stuff in a vacuum even when the majority can see fixes needs to happen, we can't even get a sense that you guys are on the same page. Can we expect to be seeing BW responses on a weekly basis? Biweekly? Obviously you won't answer every or even most questions, but just knowing that the occasional thread actually gets read is huge.

Okay, but will the sound play on the clients of nearby players? It is pretty infuriating being killed by an operative who surprises you from stealth, and then get laughed at when he gets the killing blow.

Otherwise, I want my Guardian to play a laugh sound when he gets killing blows too.
A classic sig that should not be lost:

I have been lurking the forums since they were created, I just never had the opportunity to post until now... I'm sure I will regret the decision at some point

Just kidding! I'm looking forward to responding to as many topics as I am able to but I cannot guarantee any type of quota for me or my fellow devs of course. I know its not as satisfying/comforting as having a golden yellow response but trust that we are lurking, reading and noting suggestions even if we don't give the thread a response.

Keep up the discussions! Cheers!

The complaint before the giggle was taken away was that everyone heard it.

It'll be great to have it back but if everyone hears the giggle again ...

This time, please just have it so only the person who gets the UH can hear it.

This is even better than forcing other people to disable something they have nothing to do with.

Only the first one? Sadface.

Still, better than nothing. I missed my Agent laughing as he probed people

it's an audible cue when uh procs. it would normally come before a killing blow...unless you die to blaster whip?

anyway, I'm pretty happy with the answer. it only makes the audio when the proc actually means something. quick response too. I think maybe they're only allowed to comment on "good news"?
