  • Love the Accents!

    I really like Pudge's Irish accent or Death Prophet's sexy Frenchie one
    Not to forget - Lycan and his Russian accent.

    Nothing in particular to say here.. just GJ Valve

    Oh. By Accents. Don't import Asian/Indian or African accents haha Did I sound racist ?? lol
    But I gotta say the Irish one on Pudge is pretty good lol I wouldnt mind a hero with a British Accent like armadon in HoN

    Lone Druid has a thick Scottish accent. I like that one too.

    Also, I'm not sure if Axe is British, but some of his lines sound like they are (the "sir" ones). It's hard for me to place his accent.

      Phantom Lancer sounds British enough to me. Such a gentleman's voice. And Ogre Magi's heads are also British.

      And Axe is definately not British, while Pudge is definitely Australian (he says "Thanks meat, i mean mate").

      I do like the diversity of the accents and the voicework in general. The actors are doing such a good job.

        It's Welsh, actually. But yes, It's truly fantastic. I just adore it. Juggernaut's faux Japanese is cool too.

          Lycan isn't Russian, he is closer to Spanish. Pudge is a very thick Cockney.

          My favorite would be Juggernaut, too.
          Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

            There's no way Lone Druid is Welsh. I live in the UK and I know a Scottish and Welsh accent well...

            Apparently it's done by an American in any case.

              LYCAN IS RUSSIAN! It's pretty obvious....... I haven't paid close attention to Axe but def. worth looking into it

                  Uhm, I believe I should know a little better. Though they might have had that in mind, but he doesn't mispronounce vowels the same way a Russian would.

                      It is the same with Death prophet sometimes she sounds SUPER French (when she takes regeneration rune) - other than that you have to pay closer attention.
                      Overall - they made accents understandable which is great! For instance with Lycan, take a Russian dude, put him in a English speaking country. Wait 10 years and you get Lycan's voice hahah

                        Techies (or at least one of them) with Demoman's exaggerated Scottish accent would be gold.

                          Enjoyed this, but one thing...

                          Pudge is definitely not Irish. His accent is old Cockney, but it is understandable if you don't live in the UK and/or don't have many encounters with these accents. I'm not sure about Death Prophet or Lycan though - I don't really play them - but whenever I hear them, French and Russian do spring to mind...
                          I'm not entirely sure about them though, I just wanted to say that Pudge isn't Irish.

                          Also, it was nice to see a post about the DotA 2 heroes' accents, because not many people seem to recognise how much effort Valve and everyone at his company has put into making them

                            Death Prophet just sounds.. european. I call her EuroTrash anyway. French a bit, yes, i'd agree.
                            Pudge, i dunno, i don't like in uk, i have no idea. Brits would know.
                            Lycan... not russian, not even a little bit. Did you ever really hear russians?
                            Lycan is more like oldschool romanian. Romania from East Europe. Which would make some sense lorewise. I mean, Listen to Gary Oldman's acting as Dracula.
                            You will know what i mean.
                            But it is a gimmick of a slav language, that's certain. Sadly, most people connect slav languages to russians only.
                            And no, im not from Romania, i just live nearby.
