  • Why invoker hasn't any killing a Rival replicas???

    Really ,why??? In my view this hero can say so many waspish phrases to other hero when he kills them ,to Rubick for example...

    Several of the heroes haven't had a second update for their responses, Invoker is one of them.

      No it's not because of that. It's because he doesn't acknowledge any one else on the battlefield as they're beneath him. The devs have stated this before. If he got rival lines, it'd ruin his character.

      What would be awesome though, is if they gave him more general kill lines and perhaps specific kill lines. Such as killing with sun strike or cold snap.

        They could give him lines depending on whether he killed strength, intelligence or agility heroes I think.

          Correct answer. He doesn't think anyone's good enough to be called his rival.

            dont expect rival lines for invoker. his VA recorded for one hero and they used all the package time from the film actors guild on all his current responses.

              Exactly. This is also heavily hinted in Skywrath Mage's rival lines for him:

              Rival: "I think you will remember me now, eh?"

              Ally: "If you will deign to notice me, Invoker, I believe we can learn from each other."
              "Invoker, do not pretend you have forgotten me, eh?"

              So no, he is not going to get ally or rival lines. Never.

                About sums it up.

                Also, as Vladhood mentioned, the other reason is when recording his lines, they hit the limit on the amount of voicework they're allowed to do in one session, due to Invoker having additional lines for his spells compared to other heroes at the time.

                  They probably update it in time.
                  They added Rival lines with some update's so its just time.
                  Still waiting for More Rivalry lines for AA :/

Recording sessions have interesting limitations and requirements (such as those imposed by the actor's guild, for instance), so we sometimes have to make decisions regarding what aspects of each character to focus on. We have continued to add more (and more useful) speech categories; but our restraints have not changed, so we end up optimizing for what we hope will be the most entertaining/valuable lines on a per-hero basis. That said, we still thought it was the right thing for Invoker not to recognize rivals, and turned it into a feature of his personality.
