It's very easy to know who's cheering, especially if it's happening frequently as you said; Just look around to see whose dogs/troops are reacting to it.
You can turn it off any time you want from client options (Options => CnCNet => Play sound when a game is hosted). It's always off for me.
Or you can mute/lower client volume (Options => Audio => Client Volume).
Problem is, I mainly play on Near or Far so it can be typically be very difficult to figure out who it is amongst seven players as to who's doing it. By the third game, I could finally narrow it down given the frequent roster changes between games on 8 player maps. Maybe admins can look into disabling cheers in the game lobby. It would also be nice to have an option to mute lobby sounds during a game, which would be enabled by default.
Yeah. That option is still available in game (Tab => Taunts), but yeah, it doesn't work for cheering.
It's possible to mute cheering/lower cheering volume from sound options (Esc => Game Controls => Sound => Sound Volume), but that would also affect all unit sounds.
