Valve overdoing way too many puns/jokes in hero dialogue?

    They just need more quotes for things that happen once in a while and are actually deserving of quotes (using a rune, first blood) and not every 5 seconds or after every god damn death. Try setting the kill/death quotes to play only 10% of the time instead of 100 freaking %. The sound effects are pretty good and most of the special event quotes are good, they just get drowned in the irritating and repetitive kill/death quotes.

    Now we need a techies quote where he says his character identity is honestly not Pun Laden.

                So it seems like we could used a On/Off switch for those additional lines. Means heros will stop saying those puns when you turn it off. But the lines on-command such as "On the move." will still be spoken as usual.

                  DOTA2 is taking a lot of the things from Team Fortress 2 that made it a successful game. Humorous personalities is one of those things. Deal with it.

                    Not all the heroes pun it up.

                    they so should have done:

                    LET ME AXE YOU A QUESTION!

                    There is an achievement with that title in L4D2, it would have been a nice touch. Hint Hint Valve.

                      I'm a bit skeptical. I think Weaver's lines are okay, but maybe that's because he's my favourite character ^^ Tiny's lines are really annoying though. Just look at this list. http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/Tiny_responses
                      Lina's lines are a bit silly too. http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/Lina_responses
                      Doesn't really bother me unless I get killed by the same hero 10 times a game and I have to listen to all of those puns. I think the other heroes are okay though. Especially Lifestealer, his lines fit in with his lore, most of them are about his "master". I also like how Spectre's voice is impossible to understand, it makes her more "mysterious".

                        no problem at all since if you don't like them you can mute the captions.

                          Gotta agree with Earthshaker. God his lines are just so cheesy and annoying.

                          "There may be alot of earth. But there is only one... EARTHSHAKERRR..." (WTF???)

                          And he goes shake, shake and shake and pretty much everything he says has shake in it. O god I hate him and hate him even more coz every start of the game its his silly face I see during the Hero selection! It reminds me of this cheesy lines again. Valve must do something bout his awful lines.
