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.
If they do this, then I want the BH laugh changed as well.

the bh laugh is like 3 or 4 times less frequent though. that said, make them all disable-able on the client side.

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

Cheers!
Thank You but NO!!
So i'm gonna giggle only when 1st TA is gained?? and then nothing??? So how do i keep track of the rest of TAs?!
Leave it as it is i dont care, but keep the sound same any time i gain TA. It's like i have too little things to watch as OP?? So i'll watch for one more...?
- or do i understand that you remove sound for TA exept the 1st one?

Nice. That way it will finally be discernable again. It would be great if some of the other professions' proc effects would also receive some more discernable audio feedback as well.

Sounds like a good compromise. I always liked the chuckle, but having two healing operatives running around giggling every time TA procced was just too much.

THANK YOU!!!
Can we have the old Quick Shot sound back too? The new one sounds like a whimper, and the old one was bang.

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"?
You also proc an UH every time you kill someone.

when UH procs twice before being consumed, you only giggle once. as opposed to the past where there would be 2 separate giggles. thus, the second giggle only served to annoy everyone around you (if not you yourself).

edit: I only really noticed this on healers in 1.1. the melee didn't bother me so much. but then...I died quicker back then.

THIS!!!

If it is a killing blow. I WANT A LAUGH. I don't care if I have 0,1,2, 99 stacks of TA. I want a laugh.

**** am I dreaming? Not only did someone make a thread about this (I could kiss you) but a dev responded and said the giggle is returning in 2.0?!

I can't tell you how furious I was when the giggle was taken out, but those damn overpowered pyros got to keep THEIR giggle! Now we have a beacon of hope, or something like that.
