    Though the original comment is written quite terribly, I agree that it feels somewhat unfitting. That is, it fits him, but not nearly as well as a different voice may have. As the hero I've been greatly anticipating since I got into Dota 2, I was hoping his voice would be something enjoyable to listen to as it is with Timbersaw and Meepo. I expected something a little bit higher pitched and stable - definitely toned down on modulation - to really nail the "angry at everything, complain about everything" attitude he seems he should have. As it is now, he's just another heavily modulated, guttural "kill death kill" character.

    His voice should be something a bit more lively, something that really plays up the whole "internet troll" stereotype he's based on. I can definitely see more sarcasm in his voice helping if he had the staple trolling lines he surprisingly lacks, like "Problem?" and "You mad?" that I expected to hear upon denying a creep or killing a hero. Attempting to compare it to other heroes' voices, I'd say some sort of cross between Huskar, Meepo, Timbersaw, and Sniper would've been in the area.

    I have a keen ear with music and voices, and I had no way of telling that this was voiced by the quite varied and talented Nolan North. Every single one of the heroes he voices have great lines and an entertaining voice to go with them. That is except for Shadow Demon and, now, Troll Warlord. In fact, my first thought after hearing Troll Warlord's voice was that is sounded too similar to Shadow Demon's; turns out my first impressions were correct - it's just an excessively modulated Nolan North. Most voices like this have barely any character feel or personality to them, not including the writing. When I play someone like Shadow Demon, Shadow Fiend, Outworld Devourer, etc., I don't expect to hear much personality or anything - their characters are serious. With someone WHOSE BACKSTORY AND VOICE LINES WERE BASED ON INTERNET TROLLS I had expected something amusing but still bloodthirsty.

      i imagined a voice not like sniper and timbersaw, i imagined troll with a dumb voice, a bit foolish, but still strong to show he is badass
