Glad to know I wasn't the only one that jumped a bit when it happened.

The most annoying thing is that you can't turn it off, at all.

When they first added that in beta i think I crapped myself when it went off. I wear headphones and it was insanely loud.
Like Voodoo said, I was ready for it and it scared the beejeepers out of me and I think I'm a little deaf now.

Wonder if it's possible to find out the path to the soundfile and replace it with a.. ehm.. quieter one?

oh, i was thinking there was some cool incame little sideways Triangle thingy that you see on VCRs... oh I mean bluray players :P lol. I dont ever see the launcher... not because I dont like it, because its jsut easier to pin wow client to my taskbar, that way the pinnned launcher and the active wow window dont both show up, giving me 2 wow symbols

Alternatively, instead of pinning it to your taskbar, you can pin it to your Start menu.

A blue poster went on record today saying, "Yeah, it's not supposed to be that loud, sorry. We'll fix it."

Re: Press play................GONG!!!!!!!
I jumped out of my chair yesterday when I hit the Play button to check on something in the game. This isn't an intended heart-rate check and we're looking to get it fixed in an upcoming patch.
