  • [Request] Make First Blood/ Killing Streak announcement OPTIONAL

    Lets continue this here.

    I am not requesting the devs to remove it or to change it in any way. I would like Valve to ADD an option so that people who dislike the feature can disable it (a simple console command would be enough). Reasons why we think it should be optional
    • redundancy (you get notified 3 times already when a kill is scored)
    • it's distracting (it might not be to you but to some it is)
    • it's out of place (doesnt fit the gamestyle IMO)
    • takes too much space (your field of vision is pretty small already, this notification makes it even worse)

    Again, I dont want it to be removed. So please dont reply with stuff like "I like it, keep it". Adding an option to disable it would make both sides happy and at the same time not harm anyone, unless it's a lot of work for the developers in which case I would understand if Valve refuses to implement an option like this (clarification by a developer needed if thats the case, not a betaplayer who is ASSUMING that a lot of coding is neccessary)

    Link to old thread


    The request concers the announcement in the yellow box. The announcement in the green box, the fact that you can see someone died in the red one, and you hear the announcer telling you what happened, makes this new notification pretty redundant.

    On top of that it blocks too much space, of which we dont have enough already.
