Nah... People need to stop wining and except change and play the game. This
game has been through the ringer and needs to be completed the way Thomas
wants to make it and if people don't like it then they don't have to play
it. You can't make everybody happy and I know that Tom has already said that
the game already isn't what he wanted it to be because people don't like one
thing or another and he is trying to make them happy.  I say just make the
game as you like and get it done.

Maybe release the Beta 18 sounds as a separate sound pack? That way those
who wanted it could have it while those who, like me, are happy with the
newer sounds, could stick with those. It's the sae idea that was discussed
with regard to speech packs with different voices.
We are the Knights who saaaaay...Ni!
