      In my view, the heroes simply talk a bit too often. I get sick of hearing endless puns about heroes' names, sure, but mostly because the heroes apparently can't stop talking to themselves. It's non-stop chatter, and they don't really have a lot to talk about.

      I'd really like to cut down the frequency of the chatter... but I don't think there's a significant problem with what they are saying.

        Very obvious solution:

        Put hero dialog as a scale bar in options, so that you can choose between hero dialog options "never - rarely - sometimes - often - always".

          That would be the best thing they can make so far, right now.
          Too lazy to write something with any sense. That's why i spam this here: My DevianArt account, my YouTube Channel, and my Steam Account.

            I agree, there are too many puns, not in number of puns, but in frequency.
            A hero having a 10% chance of saying a catchphrase is ok, 40% or more is not.
            Solution: add more serious phrases.

                  Yes, yes and yes.

                  Since Valve succeeded so much with TF2, they are turning all their games into horseplays. I'm quite fed up with it. Some jokes, irony or sarcasm is really nice, also because they're made by Valve, ofc; but c'mon, this looks like a Circus.

                  Even most puns are quite nice and funny and most of the hero's personality is actually brilliant (didn't expect less from Valve ♥), I think this is too much.
                  SUMO (Summing up my opinion) the thing would be -50% joking +20% seriousness

                  Anyhow, I bet in CS:GO there will be some stupid voice-lines as well...

                    Being honest and all, what you're talking about is what Dota got over by this time. Hurricanes of puns were made first, and right now we have actual personalities shipping down. In fact, I don't think that Lancer has a single joke, if you don't count his Meepo comment.

                    The items, on the other hand... We shouldn't worry much until the game is finally released - the ones that are in the game hardly resemble those from TF2. Though they are giving the fans some space via the workshop, so anything can be corrupted.
                    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

                    • Nature's Prophet has the best puns, and I chuckled the other day when I heard Sand King make a pun. Keep up the good work, Valve!

                      • I love the voicing and the dialogue all the characters use, dota 2 is very well done and very innovative towards the character development and animations continue the good work!

                        • i love the audio work from valve.
                          10 minutes for every hero shows the passion of the designer team and also if you did not like the voice just turn it off where is the problem ?

                          • More personality is always better. It's fine for me.

                                Wtf man? Some guy thinks there are too many silly jokes in an otherwise serious game, and you take that to mean he is "forever alone"?

                                Besides, no one is saying they don't like the hero's interacting with each other. So it seems you've completely missed the point.
