  • Nature's prophet, new voice actor?

    I've noticed with the cosmetic item voice files for Nature's prophet, that the voice is almost ENTIRELY different than his normal voice. Did they get someone else to do the acting? This lack of consistency is completely staggering to my ears.

    for example compare

    and this

    What happened, did NP get a batch of bad tangoes in his throat? As long as the devs see this and hear a very valid complaint I'll be satisfied.

    It's just deeper pitched. Similarly, Sven's new lines don't have the bucket head filter.

    They'll be touched up later.

      Probably voice-filters are missing (see Sven) and the VA forgot how to talk like NP.

        It turns out that matching voicework from sessions conducted years apart is nontrivial, even with the same actors doing their best to directly match the work from their original session. The differences are exacerbated by the fact that we have heard the heroes say these lines over and over and over again and they are embedded in our minds. We know exactly how they're supposed to sound. But the actors might never have heard these lines since the day they recorded them. They are reprising a role they played for maybe an hour, close to two years ago. We're doing what we can to match the original voices, it's WIP, but there are some issues of drift that seem fairly intractable.
