Bioware changed the sounds when you hit someone, the "hurt" noises are very different now.

Please do not change the "uuaaahhh" from Annihilation female marauders

Agree,

If this was on purpose its extremely annoying and kind of pointless, lets just hope its a bug for now.

That's like when they changed Slinger's guns sound from "BANG BANG BANG" to "pew pew pew"....I still miss my gunz sound.

I'm not crazy about the sith warrior pain sounds; sounds like the guy's got some serious stomach problems.

I think it sounds as if he is constipated but that's just me and I'm a bit weird

Yeah, it is a bit annoying. Maybe if there was some variety, but my knight sounds like he is being given a colonoscopy every time he moans.

Yes, I would have to say it had definitely gotten a bit excessive. Not sure why it was amplified as it was, but IMO that is not the way to improve combat in the game.

Restore the changes made to animations for PVPs sake....that would go a LONG way IMO toward improving the flow and appearance of combat in this game.

It's not just how they sound, but how often they make those sounds. It used to be that your character didn't make hurt sounds unless they got crit hardcore. Now it's like if you throw a pebble at my warrior, he's got unbearable diarrhea.

There was a short time before this, where I think some classes(at least the male trooper) were making the hurt sounds that NPC enemies normally make. I know this because I heard them when fighting nothing but animal mobs.

Former way...

hit [silent] hit [silent] hit [silent] hit [silent] crit [arrgh]

Current way...

hit [arrgh] hit [ugh] hit [oof] hit [ack]

IMO its almost as funny as watching mobs fly away before I knock them back. That's the most amusing and foolish change IMO...looks like a bad stunt move from a B rate martial arts movie.

I would assume that either this is a bug or someone is hitting themselves in the head with a brick again.

They changed them to derive from the gun's sounds themselves. But, to be honest, I still haven't found the gun I like the sound of, and old sounds, I did like better as well.
