Who asked for the old 'crack of the bat' sound?

SDS

Ummm, hello, SDS?
Surprised I haven't seen more on this topic...
One of the nicest new features has been nerfed. A good/good should not sound hollow like MLB19. Who asked for this?
Legit, the 'crack of the bat' audio was going to keep me playing all year alone. Now that it sounds a lot more like MLB19, what's the point?
You guys swung and missed on this one. Let's hope your next patch brings it back.

SDS

No... the new sounds were on perfect/perfect, not good/good.

SDS

They were a lot more prevalent pre-patch.
Are you saying you prefer the old, hollow sound instead?

What are you talking about? I didn't say anything about preferences, only talking your statement here "A good/good should not sound hollow like MLB19. Who asked for this?"
A good/good never had a new sound. Only perfect/perfect does and it still has the new sound.

Good squared has a lesser version of the perfect perfect sound but I’ve never gotten the loud sound in good good. Don’t want it then cause when I fly out I’ll be pissed lol

Good good never had the sound. You’re just getting less good squared up because they increased difficulty of hitting.

A good/good most certainly had a 'new' crack of the bat sound. Even weak hits had them. It's why it stood out to me so much post patch...

I hadn’t noticed, but it could also be a bug since there have been a few of those.

Here's a good/good homerun. It's hard to pickup all the audio because of the music, crowd and streamer talking but there is a 'trueness' to the crack of the bat pre-patch on almost all hits.
I play with no crowd noise on a nice sound system, this year's bat audio was the first things I noticed since Beta and something I've been wanting for a long time. The old hollow sound was getting stale - this year they NAILED it. But something changed this last patch.

They still are. I hit a perfect/perfect today and it made the crack noise.

Nobody is disputing the perfect/perfect hits. Those SLAP.
Maybe I am not making myself clear.
Tomdawg explains it above, there is a lesser version of the new crack of the bat audio.
It seems, imo, they've reverted back to a worse version, a sort of hollow sound instead.
I can't be the only one to notice this...

O sorry i understand now. My bad

SDS

The good/ok sounds like it’s off the end. Good/good seems to have a few sounds.

SDS

I love hearing the crack of the bat on my good/okay fly outs on perfect pci placement

Then you can come back next AB and put the PCI on the ball the exact same way and it goes from good/okay to not good/good, not good/squared up, but perfect. It makes no sense.
