what is this terribly annoying sound that was introduced to arenas with s3?

sounds like the ploinking of capturing points in C&H, but it ploinks like crazy in arena combat now!


Is there any way to turn it off?

I noticed the same thing, the game is almost unplayable with the sound on now.
In the audio options, turn off the interface volume, this will fix it..

I just thought I was hearing other people spamming abilities (maybe mashing buttons for abilities that aren't ready yet).

I hear it frequently if other players are around, PvP or Fleet Action or DSE.

I think it's people spamming Full Impulse or maybe Rebalance Shields. Reason I say that, I was paying close attention to when the sounds started and stopped while fighting alongside a bunch of folks in the Borg DSEs. After combat, I'd hear it non-stop until Red Alert went away, then it was replaced by people Full Impulsing to the next group.

So I'm gonna go with "I can hear other people's interface noises sometimes." It's only a lightly-investigated guess, though.

By the way, love the topic title.
