Agreed. The one sound that caught my ear as way better is the new JA Destroyer.
Sounds like Space Battleship PWNAGE.
Everything else that changed is a step backwards.
AC's are worse. with the possible exception of the Oberon one...the new sound is a bit more fitting...but it needs more POWER to be worthy.
TC's are worse. the attack beam sounds weak...the old one had BITE.
Akula Destroyer sounds worse. I can't even remember what it sounds like now. too unmemorable.
Did they do anything to the Oberon Destroyer? Let me know, can't quite remember if it changed.
I've mentioned this before in another Thread I made, and the devs liked my critique; saying that they could possibly change it in the future...that was a few months before steam launch though...
Sound Mixing improved with the latest hot fixing.
I haven't noticed a problem yet with the near miss incoming fire sounds...so can't comment.
