Sounds horrific. Please, for the love of my ears, make it less noisy. It sounds like Edward Scissorhands attempting to clap.

I really do NOT like the new sound effects for new Katarina's auto-attacks. Please change them back to the "sharp" clanging knife sounds she had before.

I absolutely agree with this. Her Q is the biggest offender. The other sounds I may not like but are tolerable, but the new metallic clinking sound on her Q is not at all. I will mute my game if there is a Kat in it until I can find where to replace the sound.

For reference

The new sound for Kat's Q, and sometimes her autos, has a very grating and annoying metallic clink sound. Even her shunpo sound is bad, though it's tolerable. Maybe it's just me or these and the other few vids I watched, but otherwise the pitch of this sound should be looked at. If I have to play with a Kat and her Q sounds like the first vid, I'm muting the game.

Hey guys,

Thanks for bringing your feedback to the audio forums. For some context, stuff that goes up on PBE is not always final assets/fully mixed, which I believe might be part of the issue here. We made adjustments to her last week, and I'm not sure they have been reflected in what you guys are seeing there.

We'll try and see if there are more tweaks necessary tweaks we can fit in on our end. That said, if you guys are having similar issues at launch definitely let us know and so we can make sure we have all your feedback!

So they comment on the new sounds, but not her balance? Good job, Riot. Ask us for PBE feedback and don't listen to the most important part...

Look at the rioter. What could he have to offer in terms of balance discussion? He's a sound guy. So he commented on a sound problem.

BURN HIM ON A STAKE!

The only thing I dislike about her audio is one of her taunts or jokes, not sure which. Something about living a little, while you can.

The "while you can" part sounds really off and I very much dislike it. It's too manly? Almost as if she's got too much testosterone in her system.
