I think this is the right thread to mention this. I don't want to make yet another thread complaining, but I can't help but notice something.
The old soundtrack was really good. The tracks were high-action, military-themed to just the right degree. There were enough of them that it didn't got old listening to them, especially when distracted by battle and all the great sounds that were present there. The ambience of the hangar was also good. It all created the right kind of atmosphere that fits this game perfectly.
Now all of this is apparently gone?
Replaced by a single, gloomy track that plays over and over in the hangar, and replaces (or so it seems, maybe I just can't hear it) the ambience of the hangar. The tracks that used to play when you selected your ship made me feel like it was all about to kick off, as it should do!
This new one just feels like a dynamic extention of the looped hangar track. I have nothing more to say of it really.
And finally the sounds. I must admit I DO like the new sounds of the Akula Vector dreadnoughts main cannons, but that is only when I am lucky enough to hear them.
The rest of them are too bassy, as others have suggested, and sound bugs are abundant. Bugs however will be fixed, but ditching a perfectly good soundtrack serves no purpose imo.
I don't want to keep complaining. I love this game functionally, and I really don't want it to die. I want it to have good steam reviews, because for gameplay reasons it deserves to have! But why are they doing these things? What is the motive behind it all?
