I would like some voices like "for the republic", "die jedi!", "I have the force".

I love the new combat vocalizations. As someone said in another thread:

Especially in this game, where each class has a different voice, it adds more variety to all my alts, and adds to the distinctiveness of each.

But it makes me a bit apprehensive that there was no patch note or fanfare for such a cool addition...as if they're not particularly proud of it (though they should be) and it might get suddenly removed with just as little notice.

Yeah, some battle cries along the lines of the classic KotOR "The Force fights with me!", "Down you go!" and of course, "Just...DIE, already!" would be sweet. Both for companions and player characters.

So yeah, I don't find them the least bit excessive myself. But, I'd support a toggle for people who'd rather turn them off.

Companions already have battle cries, like "Feel my Force!", "You're going down!", "Hah! I gotcha!", "Now you're dumb, ugly, and dead!", etc. But a character being able to have a battle cry (maybe one time per battle, only when you initiate the fight) would be awesome. Especially if they were distinct–troopers had "For the Republic!" or "Havoc Squad! Attack!" or something; Jedi had "For the Jedi!" and "The Force fights with me!" as a Bastila throwback, and so on.

Oh yeah, that's true.

Yeah, definitely. Personally I'd prefer a bit more randomness than just the start of the fight, and maybe they'd fire more than once during long fights, or not at all sometimes.

But yeah, since there would be the different actor for each class anyway, class-specific lines would be the way to go.

Hey! That's a great idea, with the character battlecries. I made a thread on Suggestion Box. If you like it, leave a supportive comment, maybe we'll get a chance to pass this idea.

Hi there folks!

We're interested in getting some additional information about the changes you're referring to with regards to sound effects in combat. If you've noticed this, please post here to tell us as much of the following as possible:

- Which planet or area are you in when you notice the sound changes?
- What enemies are you in combat with?
- Does this occur in PvP as well as PvE?
- Is your experience similar to or different than what LordArtemis describes below?

We appreciate your info, and we'll post a follow up for you when there's some definitive information around what's going on here.

so this was not intentional? I wondered.

I cannot vouch for other areas, as I've been hanging out on Oricon recently, other than operations and flashpoints (in which I'm often too distracted to pay attention to pain sounds) but on Oricon its kinda disturbing.

mainly noticed it on my jugg, though that's probably because on my other 55ves - companion is the one getting hit majority of the time

Apparently not...I was afraid of that. Seems like that's pretty good grounds to think it'll be removed, and it was my favorite new thing in a while. I still hope they'll add an option for it...

- Planet: Taris on the Republic side, Balmorra on the Imperial side. (And those are the only planets I've been on since 2.4.)
- Enemies: All, as far as I can tell.
- I don't PvP, so I'm not sure about there.
- My experience is different from what LordArtemis described in a couple respects:
-- Before 2.4, I never noticed the combat vocalizations. Not rarely, not only for critical hits, but never.
-- Currently, it doesn't seem like they happen with EVERY hit. Maybe 1/3 - 1/2 the time.

Oh well, I guess I'll enjoy them while they last...but it would be cool to have them stay as an option at least.

I have definitely noticed combat sounds sounds being changed, in almost every case, though I'd have to go back and really pay attention today to what I'm actually hearing.

I've always noticed combat sounds in the past, though, and in my experience it's always been more often than just crits, so I wouldn't be surprised if people has kind of started to block sounds out, but once they changed, they started noticing them again.
