  • [SUGGESTION] Themed Narration of Lore

    Something I hope to do is read the lore of every hero. But it's a little tedious, seeing as there are so many heroes. What would be wicked, and facilitate this for everyone, is to present this upon character selection (or on the Learn page). After you've selected a character the game will play back a narration of the hero's lore, to help you really sink into that hero just prior to playing a round with him or her. Using mystical voices, or voices from their heritage/region recounting the lore of the hero along with themed music from their land. Valve would be bumping up the standard of a free to play gaming if they introduced something like this into DOTA 2. Truly.

    way too obtrusive and impractical to play a backstory sound file every single time a hero is chosen.

      It would be tedious for those quickly checking a hero's skill on the learn tab to hear the narration, perhaps separate the lore from the stats (like it was during the initial learn page before it got changed into browser format) and have the lore narrated when you select the lore section of the learn tab.

      I, for one, welcome our new Russian overlords.
