  • Tusk's voicework

    ...is god awful.

    Could you guys not find a Nordic person to do it properly instead of this forced accent?

    The hero is fun as hell, but his voice makes me want to punch out my eardrums.

    It was bad enough with WELCOMEA TOA THEA GREEEVALINGA.....

    The accent is what makes the hero awesome for me. I love the voicework. Just wait some time, you will get used to it.

      No.

      Some of his lines are decent, but some sound similar to a forced Italian accent.

            Everyone's a critic. No one's ever satisfied. Sorry they didn't find a true Nordic voice actor for your free game.

                Im just here to let them know it sounds terrible, artificial and extremely forced.

                Whats the matter? Cant take criticism?

                  His voicework is one of my favorites so far... Even if you don't like it you can't really say its AWFUL? You're just being an ass.

                    Hadn't played a game with Tusk yet, just now did. Even worse than the greeviling. It's so forced it's unbelievable. I'm honestly surprised Valve thought that was the right route to go with tusk's voice. And for the people who think we are simply hating on the voice actor, I have nothing against the guy. The accent is just so fake that it doesn't sound natural at all.

                      And where are you from sir? I think your accent sounds a bit sketchy to me.

                        Lay off the cynicism, would you. Tusk is mindblowingly weird, the least to be said. I don't know who came up with that voice, but seriously, putting one glock of an emphasis on the end of every single word was probably a bit too much.
                        Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

                          Oh god yes. Please rework the voiceover. The voice and accentuation don't fit Tusk at all, let alone fit Dota. Greeviling was god-awful, don't make it even worse by putting it in the game permamently, please.

                            see the problem here is that you're assuming he's supposed to be nordic, even though he comes from a fantasy universe.

                            that's just the way people from his made-up region talk. he's not emulating an accent from any of our nationalities because those don't exist in the world of dota.

                              Are you kidding? the voice is amazing, I do admit that sometimes it feels too forced and thick but the accent itself is great, and so was the greeviling announcer, I'm only not gonna buy the tusk announcer because I already have the bastion one and one announcer is enough for me.
