    It's all too much, the volume on some of them is too loud but the overall spam of noises is what's really bothering me.
    It was fine when there was a sound for changing tabs and pressing find match.

    At least bring back an option to have the choice to enable/disable what kind of sounds you want.
    Actions in the UI need audio feedback to give weight.

    To me it makes the UI feel more like it's doing something.

    If you feel like that I guess they're good, I however look at the screen most of the time and sometimes I listen to music and it's really annoying having every click make a noise.
    An option to disable them would fix it

    They need to be less special-effects-y. I preferred the old sounds.

    I'd prefer a really faint click/water droplet noise than the steel door closing sound that they have now.

    I liked the old ones fine. These would probably be okay, but they're WAY too loud. Also, many of them consist of multiple accents within a single play or have a very discernible echo, which defeats the purpose of these types of sound effects. They exist as feedback for hovering over or clicking a UI object. If it creates "multiple sounds", that sort of throws off the purpose.

    perhaps a new 'UI volume' slider in the audio options? I think that would help...

    the sound effects shouldn't be removed.. they make it richer like whole milk, rather than skim milk. Still dota2 isn't creme yet :[

    Maybe we can get an interface volume slider next patch... it was requested in some threads.

    I agree, they are too BOOM! I preferred the more subtle menu button sounds.
