i think the ping noise is very annoying and should be changed to anything less annoying. anyone agree?

If it wasn't annoying you wouldn't notice it

there should at least be a volume control for the ping and a cap on how many times the noise can go off in a given time. mass ping is awful, especially when it is that loud and annoying.

I agree. There should be a separate volume for pings however I can see how that may interfere with performance and communication if half your team doesn't have their ping volume audible at all.

But a cap is definitely in order. I think Riot uses FMOD for their audio middleware and I'm not sure if it has that functionality built in, but Wwise does and its a good thing

There needs to be an option for the ping to turn it off or down. Sometimes people abuse it which in turn makes the game experience awfull. I've almost left games before because of the rediculous pinging of the map over and over and over. I beg you, please add some type of mute button next to the mini map.

I hunted down this forum and then this thread just because of my hatred of the ping sound. An argument of it being necessary for me to respond is invalid since I start to ignore pings after the third consecutive PINGPINGPING.
If I could find the file I needed to delete, I would. You would think I was the worst team member ever but I would be mindlessly running around having the time of my life, ignoring these stupid pings.
If anything, put a delay on it. For starters, one ping per second is too often. The current system encourages throwing pings on the minimap and can cause confusion or frustration (I yell furiously in ventrilo).

To respond to myself quickly- You mad? Yep. This sound is honestly BAD enough to make me post about it here. Give me a way to adjust it and I will. i.e. A volume slider (labeled LOUD-ASS PING VOLUME *TrollFace*) similar to the music and ambiance in games.

An addition to my previous rant.
Consider people who do not speak the same language as 3/5 of the team.
I don't understand their chat, so instead they spam the map, which I begin to ignore or prioritize less frequently. This of course leads to a messy game :<

End rant... Possibly.
