  • Similiar voices among heroes

    I'm sure this has been discussed before but I just feel the need to convey my opinion about some of the voices for the heroes. I really hate it when heroes sound similar especially when you have the same voice actor doing as many as 4 or 6 heroes when they don't even try to sound different. I don't mind having the same VA doing multiple characters if they can fit the bill of giving said hero that individuality but when you start to hear some really obvious similarities and then a complete clone of the accent of an existing hero it just starts to lose that sort of uniqueness when you're playing a certain hero as I've had that issue when playing the original DoTA where some heroes have the same voice sets. Warlock and Necrolyte sounds just about the same disregard the voice filter and now we have Brewmaster who sounds exactly like Lone Druid and Lycanthrope *Because Valve decided to use Nolan North for the past 4 heroes instead of getting somebody else* I would like to at least hope that Valve at least considers my plea as a low priority consideration in the future where they try to make these heroes sound different in some way where you wouldn't be able to notice the similarities among them. Thank you!

      You sure do have a point, but, for chrissake, 108 heroes.

      Also, it is worth saying that while Lycan and Brew sound alike, this similar voice fits both of them equally well. And LD doesn't sound even remotely close to them, as for me.

      Some are unbearably similar, though, I can't let that go. Perhaps the only VAs who actually sounded very different on all the heroes they voiced were John Patrick Lowrie and Gin Hammond. The others always have a dupe.
      Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.
