  • ADDING LATIN PHRASES OR SOME LANGUAGES SUITABLE FOR HEROES

    Well, I have noticed that most of the heroes (or all of them) have english language.
    In the classic WC3 DotA, most of the Heroes speaks Latin which for me makes them more "Authentic".
    I know Dota2 created so much add on and Humour to the Heroes Sound Effects which are fun.

    Imagine Invoker doing incantations using Latin, just like Wizards in Harry Potter when casting spells.
    Doom Bringer with weird satanic chanting, Shadow Shaman in troll accent.

    Also does anyone noticed Night Stalker's BATMAN voice?

    Most of the stuff you suggest is already in the game.

    Shadow shaman makes weird chanting sounds.

    Shadow Demon says some demonic shit once in a while.

    It has been confirmed by a dev in a recent post that Doombringer is getting new lines for rivalry with other demon heroes, like shadow demon, where he will speak demonic shit.

    Skeleton King say C'est la Vie, Peasant!

    I'm sure there are others in there too.

      He says "Take a knee, peasant!". This is coming from the subtitles, by the way, not personal interpretation.

        How is everyone missing Warlock out when this topic comes up? He's got the baddest move lines in the game.
        Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

          tbh, I still think that those lines were supposed to be his lines for Shadow word, because he has like hundreds of move lines, but none for Shadow Word currently. And his gibberish would fit Shadow Word quiet well.
          Please, just call me buny.

            Latin? Could that even be more trite?

              All the better for us to understand what they're saying.

              Nope.

              He does: he recites Wex, Quas and Exort from time to time.

              There's no such thing as a troll 'accent'. I'm also not fond of chants because they're hardly memorable - case in point Warlock as mentioned a couple posts earlier.

                Oh wow, how disappointing. Cest la vie was much deeper philosophically

                I get it though, he is a king and he is asking them to kneel.

                har di har har I need to get my hearing checked.

                  I hope you realise that Cest la vie is French not Latin. Also to answer the question no thanks. Although the evil part of me does take some pleasure in people thinking French is a demonic language.....*runs*

                    I know it's French. Shadow shaman chanting is also not latin, french or demonic. They were examples. How did my example of non english stuff in the game turn to Cest la vie becoming latin(?) and then french becoming a demonic language?

                      Because OP felt that Latin is the only language that would define a character's "Authenticity", and you felt like the characters you gave are authentic, which are against everyone's current thought-processes.

                      In other words people secretly want to have Latin lines to, and hate the fact you stated some lines that aren't even Latin anyway but claim they are authentic.

                        I feel like having a few lines in other languages, gibberish or not, is cool and all, but not all that much is necessary.

                        Also, Nightstalker's voice is decidedly that of the Half-Life 2 Vortigaunt, who was defining cool way before Batman Begins (they share voice actors).
