  • Abbadon Voice

    Ok guys, seriously, this needs to change.

    At the moment, he sounds pretty much identical to Elder Titan.

    Was his voice rushed? I'm sure the voice actor is very talented, but it sounds like valve just added the exact same filter effect from TC onto LoA.

    I think it would be much better if he was given a more unique voice.
    LoA should have more of a mysterious voice like Enigma, due to his model and lore.

    I don't really like TC's voice either, but that's another topic. My problem is with 2 heroes sounding way too similar to each other.
    The filter effect is very similar to how some "musicians" use autotune because they think it sounds amazing, but in reality you feel like breaking something every time you hear it.

    Anyway, who's with me?

    Heres an example of the two voices:
    Elder Titan

    Sounds good in game for me. Don't care about comparing these one-liners tbh

      I can't actually understand most of his lines. His voice is too garbled and quiet. I don't care that he sounds similar to Elder Titan but at least his voice should be redone with less filters and more volume.

        agreed, can hardly hear what he says and sounds like he's mumbling than talking, abbadon has the worst voice acting of all heroes in my opinion with titan being the second

          I can understand him just fine and think his acting is great for the sort of character he is.

          He also sounds nothing like Elder Titan.

            They sound completely different, I think you need to clean your ears or something. But that said, it doesn't mean that his voice couldn't use some tweaking. Maybe try different filters.

              He is the first hero in Dota 2 that i couldn't understand. I doubt that there's something wrong with my hearing. Usually i can more or less hear him mumble some garbled half chewed phrases but when combat music plays - almost nothing.

                I really felt just kinda depressingly disappointed with this one. I wanted to like it or hate it, instead I just couldn't decide what is this voice work was supposed to be.
                I think his speech is really bland acting with thousand of filters over it. That's pretty much what latest heroes sound like overall.
                Just compare this shit to the original heroes like Axe or Windrunner, it's really uninspired piece of work. Use the actors to do the work, not the software, please.

                  The major problem with Abaddon's voice is that it is hard to hear. Just look at him! He is scary, majestic knight with power to control life and death! Lord of Avernus! Loads of awesomeness! But his mumbling, inaudible voice ruined it! I think his voice should be bit louder and clear. I was actually expecting voice like Alucard in Hellsing. So the current voice acting is bit disappointing.

                    in the test client it's a lot better now. They removed a filter or 7 from him and I think upped the pitch a bit. It's a lot more easy to understand.
