The wah-wah-wah sound of the Sad Trombone Emote should be made the sound that plays whenever your character dies
I got the Sad Trombone emote with some of my Bright Dust when it was available a few weeks ago. Maybe I'm childish, but it's going to take a long time before that emote gets old.
I started using when the boss dies at the end of a strike, but it occurred to me how funny it would be if you could toggle on a sound that plays whenever your character died (Fallout 4 and other games have failure sounds, so it's not a new thing).
Of course, it would be something only you could hear. Imagine a Control match with sad trombone playing every few seconds - that would drive players nuts quite quickly. However, having a sound clue when a Guardian is down in a strike or raid might actually be useful given that it can be easy to miss the onscreen clue if things are too hectic.
Obviously, I'm just mostly joking here. I think this game doesn't have enough comedy or silliness in it, with emotes being one of the few sources, and is way too packed with characters slow-talking about doom, higher purposes, duty, etc, in so on in solemn voices. A good laugh now and then wouldn't hurt.
It'd get annoying for [i]every single death.[/i]
It'd be funny if it only played during REALLY painful deaths like losing a critical duel in a Trials match, dying and going back to orbit in Grandmasters or if you die in a raid with no tokens remaining.
