Well apart from fielding Mogami in order to master the glorious ninja concealment of 10.5km on the heavy cruiser (Atago has 10.4 with the concealment mod as well), there were times multiple announcers started booming their status reports such as "main turret critically damaged!" and "unable to maneuver!" as I was hit in the stern several times when I was running away, I gotta ask this:

 

What's the last thing you'd ever want to hear in the heat of battle getting there?

 

That is all.

 

EDIT: lol I missed that one. thanks Eurobeat.

The ringing citadel sound when you get smacked by a BB takes the cake for me. :D

I just realised lol. Watching half your hp disappear and have that ringing afterwards just makes you despair sometimes. :popcorn:

 your anguishing scream as you mag det during the first minutes of the engagement 

 

Followed by the sounds of flipped tables and a loud string of profanities until you eventually just sit there staring at the screen contemplating the meaning of life.

You forgot the island collision alarm..

And if you happen to get beached, it gets louder and apparently alerted the whole enemy team to F3 spam directly at your ship

the new sound effect before announcing the broken modules is annoying af.

it's so severe that my div-mate once thought his soundcard is broken and restarted his PC.

 

seriously, does anyone know how to disable it? like, is it on a sound file and can we just simply delete it.

 

other than that, turret blown up is always a nightmare..

Too bad i cant vote 3 times cause:

Main turret blown up is the last thing you want to hear in a Russian DD

118dft_zpska8skmpn.jpg

(yes, that guy parked his DD in the safest spot before the game ends and just left)

 

 

Getting detonated in the first 5 minutes of the game, well its obvious its not good for your repair bills if you're playing tier 8's above (especially in a DD or BB) Any tiers below that, i congratulate the guy who fired me and said: thanks for the flags (sometimes high tiers if i deserved to be killed instantly)

 

Landmass Collision Alarm, because if you tunneled vision so hard, you're paying the repairs as the price of not being attentive due to overexcitement on engaging a particular ship, and the tables are turned and you're done (most cases)

You are a destroyer, you exist to picket alert the team against aircraft. You are not a Russian DD which has a surprising AA suite for a ship of its size.

Worst sound?

The time for team battles is approaching and your all geared up for it when the wife says

" I need the computer tonight for my Uni assignment"

As someone who does suffer from ringing in the ears, that heavy damage sound effect is annoying at times.

The landmass collision alarm can also be very annoying. Sometimes I will purposefully crash so I don't get a torpedo sandwich.
