  • Hero's no longer say anything upon being picked.

    Prior to the card system when you picked a hero they would say their name. For me this doesnt happen anymore. Is it just me? Bring it back

    +1, I've observed the same.

      I too noticed it for a long time and have no idea why would they disable such a nice feature...

        ever since I joined (circa nov last year) each time a hero spawns the screen freezes and nothing is played, with the new system I can at least hear a line from my own hero on spawn

 my Rubick said "Grrrrraaand Magus" when the game starts. Or do you mean that a hero should have an immediate response after you click "Pick" button (and the game is not started yet)?
          Remember, remember the 1st of November

            Think he means when you click the pick button,
            And yes why has this been removed?

              In my case , its not that hero no longer say anything upon being picked. But they say a different lines when they were picked (like they used respawn voice lines when they were picked)


              • #8
                This really ought to be placed back in.

                  Has anyone of you tried verifying the game cache? Because this problem has been around for very, very long, and KrisK himself said that verifying should fix it; and so it did for me.
                  Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.


                  Visit the Dota 2 Lore Megathread. Renovation ongoing.

                    I am not experiencing this, maybe it's only on some heroes? or try verifying your game cache.

                      It's a quirk with the card-picking system. When you select a hero, you don't actually "pick" them, until you press the Play button when the game is ready. Things like the heroes saying their names only happens when they are picked, which isn't really happening now.

                      This also has a side effect of not having them show up in the replay hero-picking screen. It feels like the card system is kinda hack-y with stuff like this not working.
