  • Anti-Mage and Necrolyte sound exactly the same.

    AM: http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/Anti-Mage_responses

    Necrolyte: http://www.dota2wiki.com/wiki/Necrolyte_responses

    They've done a good job with most of the heroes sounding distinct, but these two heroes pretty much have exactly the same voice. Is there some way that Valve could re-record one of them?

    Or give Necrolyte some filters.
    Please, just call me buny.

      I can see what you mean. I think AM should sound a bit more nasally since hes more uppity about his opinions. Necrolyte's calm grandeur works really well for him I think.

        Wow. It DOES really sound familiar. Maybe distort Necro's voice just a little bit. Just a little, not too much and it'll be good to go.

          you just noticed this now? lina/windrunner/puck also sound exactly the same, just like huskar/skeleton king and ursa/spirit breaker

          there's no difference at all, same voice

            Huskar/Skeleton King I can see, but I don't think Lina at all sounds like Windrunner or Puck. Nor do I think Ursa and Spirit Breaker sound that alike.

            I'm fine with characters sounding similar, it's just that these two seem to literally have the same voice. I know that they have the same voice actor and all, but it's like he voicing the same character with different phrases. As was suggested earlier, I feel one of them (Necrolyte would be the obvious choice) would benefit greatly by some type of added filtering effect to the voice.

              They dont have many voice actors to cover each and every hero uniquely. So it was expected that they sound similar at one point or another.

                    for some reason it doesnt bother me, maybe because they should sounds the same, they're both pretty manly. the other heroes (Venomancer, Faceless Void) Dave Fennoy voiced sounds different.
                    Sam A. Mowry has done a lot of voice acting (6 heroes and shopkeeper) as well, but antimage and necrolyte sounds way too familliar, i think some filters on necrolyte would do the work (remember how they changed enigmas voice?).

                      Venomancer, Faceless Void
                      Okay, those weren't good examples, as the two actually do sound similar. Now Batrider, that's different.


                      And, in fact, I think I did suggest adding filters to a couple of heroes before. But, whatever, I'll have to agree - Necrolyte is a better candidate out of the two.
                      Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

                          Eh... Windrunner and Puck suffer from this far more than Anti-mage/Necrolyte.
                          There's intonation shifts with these two, and except when he's showing heavy emotions (Check laughter and Rival lines) I can tell who is talking.
                          But in Puck's and Windrunner's case... Well, Puck is like Windrunner mimicking G-man's way of speaking.

                            Also most Heroes voiced by Tony Todd (Viper, Dragon Knight, Stalker) sound very familiar because of his, how to say it, ehm...dominant "t"

                            Listen for that T, it's so sexy but...so recognizable

                            And Runner/Puck=almost identical.

                            Also:
                            David Scully=Best voice actor, that guy voices Sand King, Sven, Juggernaut, Bane, Dazzle and none of them sounds familiar at all.

                              Almost. Weaver and Bane are quite similar. If we're going with this topic, then it's John Patrick Lowrie, he's Shaker, Doom, Seer, Apparition, Nevermore and Pudge. Each and every one of them is unique.
