That's what this game needed. Din't play for a few days, and today while playing i started hearing an ugly sound.

Heck, for a moment i was like my laptop is breaking down or something.

 

Then a couple of games in, it started getting even worse, and i was like what the trucker is going on. And saw a bunch of players type K or F can't remember, and you will honk.

 

To make it worse, you can't even disable it i think. Was looking in the sound setting and found nothing, well except if you play without sound.

You can disable it. Settings main page i think.

And yes, it sounds crap.

Check again. This is what they said:

What You Need to Know

  • The horn will be enabled by default for all players. You can disable it in your game client settings. Once you do this, you won't be able to hear either the horns from other Commanders or your own vehicle's horn.

It's only for a few more days. It was apparently a highly requested feature back in the day. This was simply a homage to it, much like the open chat we had before there again for a week.

 

So... no it won't stick around luckily.

Because of that one Steve that follows you around all game continuously honking. Now if they could just manage to do the same with the map pings...

but we just established that you can disable the horn sounds in under 5 seconds. So imo that argument is invalid.

You code in a feature that is supposed to be just for fun but can turn extremely annoying if people are able to spam it nonstop. As a dev you want people to use that feature because you put time into it but don't want people to be able to troll others with it so you limit the use in the hopes that most users don't feel the need to disable it completely.

This says it all about WG's will to do anything to improve the game. They invest their effort in honking. Seriously.
