  • Hero-to-hero specific taunts in the Dota Store

    The more I play the more I've come to relish the unique responses when a hero calls out another hero's name after they kill them (or are killed by them). They add an interactive and dynamic aspect to the game that generic responses lack. "Whatever that was, was scarcely worth my notice" pretty much sums up how I feel about most of the kill dialogue.

    I hate to bring it up, but to make something like this economically viable (voice actors and sound mixing is expensive), you could have sound packs available in the store. While I wouldn't buy a green hat, I would definitely buy a pack of 20 new lines of speech for my favorite hero for something like $2.99.

    Plans for this may already be in the works, though. I know you guys are making taunts to sell in the store. So, I guess what I'm advocating for are hero-to-hero specific taunts. There are plenty of other threads in the forum that advocate for similar sound bytes as well.

    Great idea!

      While I hate to feel entitled, dialogue lines feel like something that should come with the game. I would be all for paid taunt animations and lines (which are coming), but the rival lines already being in the game makes them feel really special. So few games have the kind of unique triggered dialogue like this.

        I would buy new lines for heroes as well. Would be nice when I kill someone or get killed and they hear a totaly new line.

        They could sell new taunts, Rival and dialogue sounds and whatnot all for like $5 and bundles with a few new lines of every category for $10.
