    Yes, I honestly wanted Gyro to have "They came from... behind!" as a death response. The rest... Oh, yerp, some of the memories still whine within me.

    And yes, Techies will officially be ruined if they don't scream "Do not run, we are your friends!" when suiciding.
    Wasn't techies global quote for suicide "We come in peace!"?

      I have to confess, I've got no idea since my version wasn't the English one. But as far as I'm concerned, they did say "Do not run, we are your friends!" in my language.
      Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

        The only lines they can't simply use are the lines directly related to WC3.
        I still don't think that it's the phrases that is the issue at hand, it's the soundfiles with the original sound actors. Those are all copyrighted files, and as I mentioned in my previous post, I doubt neither the community n'or Valve would be very satisfied creating new soundfiles with the same phrases which differentiate enough from the original so that they may not call for an infringement lawsuit.

            I liked how the "F" and horse snort went together. I hope he remains a grumpy old man.

                    I've played dota for years, and I do have some attachment to the Warcraft 3 voicework. But that's just the thing -- it's all Warcraft 3 voicework. Its existence is Dota 1 is really just an accessory, being a custom map and all. I can't say, "I sure did like Nevermore's VA" because I just think, "I sure did like the Dreadlord's VA" you know?

                    Valve/Icefrog now have the opportunity to make heroes appear and speak however they please. Given that opportunity, do you really think they'd just copy stuff from Warcraft 3? I certainly wouldn't. I'd want to make something unique and memorable in and of itself, not resort to simple references.

                    Even then, it's not like they threw everything out the window. Invoker, for example, is still pretty much a blood elf -- he even sounds like one. Pudge still says "fresh meat", and Spectre is incomprehensible.

                      You are pretty clearly mistaken since they remade Ahh Fresh Meat which has been an iconic Blizzard sound bite that's been in almost all of their games since Diablo 1. If any of this was an issue at all that would not have been possible. I think your understanding of infringement law and the motivations of the parties involved is flawed. Also, we can see who is posting by your poster name on the side bar.
