  • Sniper's Voice

    No disrespect to his voice actor but he sounds so annoying. It's likely intentional, but wasn't he more manly and dwarf-like in the old DotA? Now he sounds like a weird immature old coot. I mean, he says stuff like "What a dumdum!"

    It's kinda sad because he has a cool name and cool background story. I think the voice doesn't fit him at all. I find it hard to respect his character at all at this point.

    Yeah he should have more like: 420 BLAZE IT FAGGOTS HEADSHOT MLG PRO NOSCOOPS360 things to say. It would feel more like cal of doty then btw my fav geam.

      all the dwarves (Keen) in this game have similar (but still very different) voices. All higher pitch, kind of fast talking and almost... "nerdy" I guess? I like it, it gives a more unified feel to their race versus Axe/Disruptor/Warlock which you can't really even tell are the same race.

        I guess that's a good point. I just wish he sounded a bit more fitting to his story. He seems more like a cartoon character now, and not really as clever as most other characters for some reason. His lines make me not want to use him if given a choice, and if he's trying to be the enemy side's main carry I make it a point to try to kill him first (as is a normal strategy anyway, but I do it with much pleasure and bloodlust).

        Viper is an annoying trash talker too but his lines fit him very well. "You twitch like a snake-bitten mouse."

            The only line I really hate is "What a dumdum!" I don't know if I should feel insulted or not, because I mean come on... Who says that for trash talking? He could've said "Take that, you big meanie!" or something and it would have the same gravity to me. Then again, with his voice it sounds a bit more condescending. Mission accomplished?

                I can nullify any argument against sniper's lines with this: http://www.dota2wiki.com/images/7/76/Snip_rare_02.mp3

                  The only thing I have against sniper's VA is that he has almost no lines for items...
                  I think his voice should be calmer, right now he sounds like a trigger happy kid who just got a rifle, but as someone said it, all dwarves have higher pitched voices, so there isn't much to do
                  why are you still playing ranked?

                    Well that's what he is. He is exiled because some kind of rite of passage went wrong, and young men are those who generally undergo trials.

                      Oh thanks for that info. I guess that makes more sense and is kinda clever. That was my gripe about it, because almost everybody else has clever lines and puns for stuff when they kill, so it felt kinda stupid that Sniper said something I thought was so childish.

                      Yeah I think that's what pisses me off the most. But I guess we'll have to live with it.

                      I think my anger against his voice and lines has been softened a bit by this thread. Thanks, internet!

                        In today's issue of "WTF Just Happened," the DOTA 2 dev forums help calm down a user by responding rationally and respectfully.

                          I like his voice but I'd be lying if I said it didn't get a little annoying now and again.

                            Its kinda meant to be condescending. Since magic or pure strength/ability is the defining trait for most heroes and others, the keen have devised their own way to beat the others with their sheer intellect. Causing them to be considered jackasses by everyone else, and disliked and thought weak for their denial of the original ways of power.
