  • I personally dislike the distortion on Rubicks Dialog, what do you all think of it?

    I love the writing of Rubick's Dialog, and his delivery, but to me it is spoiled by the distortion effected placed on it. It loses some of the somewhat naive charm he has. I think ether the distortion needs to be reworked, or simply dropped.

    Also, it makes him sound a bit to much like Razor.

    I find it a bit too high-pitched, I expected something more among the lines of SD or Enigma. I believe that it should be hardened a bit, it really looks... too fitting to his I-Am-On-Crack animations.
    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

      He kind of sounds like Stephen Fry to me.

      It's okay, but a little strong - making some lines more difficult to discern.

        It's the same problem I have with Silencer.

        He sounds like he's talking into a plastic barrel.

            The voice actor Barry Dennen delivers the lines a bit too similarly as the rest of the heros he has voice acted. Rubick's, Chaos Knight's and Phantom Lancer's lines are all delivered by the same tone, Chaos Knight being a bit more different since there is a hint of accent. Their main difference seems to be just the effects, I am sure that Dennen is a good voice actor but the characters sound just a bit too similar imo

              Well, for my opinion, Rubick must have less distortion in his voice. Well look at his naive face
              Or even he's probably must be some kind of an insane or something )) Just look on his twitched animation) yes, I know - he's Grand Magus. But he's genious could be of insanity )

                ye some lines sound really odd with his distortion (if thats the correct term for it).

                also he seems to change his tune in some lines. has this something to do with his lore or was the va just bored?

                  For me he sounds perfect. There is some uniqueness in his voice.

                    Perhaps he's a schizophrenic?

                      Maybe he does sound a little too similar to other heroes, but the grain of insanity, his shaky animations and unique model design blends into coolest character in DotA2. (At least for me)
