  • Suggestion to get Ellen Mclain to voice Legion Commander

    If you didn't get Legion Commander voiced yet, I'd like to suggest Ellen. Out of the female voice actors, she has the least amount of roles and would bring some much needed diversity to the female voice pool. I'm not disparaging the skill of the other voice actors, but their vocal range is limited (not everyone can be Nolan North), so some of the female heroes sound similar. IMO her voice work is the best, (Broodmother and Prophet are exceptional), so I'm a little biased, but I do believe she would bring in a little more variety.

    If Legion Commander is already voiced then I can only hope and/or suggest the voice is different from the other heroes. You could apply some filters or whatnot to make the voice stand out, as in the case of Medusa. Again, I don't mean to knock the skills of the voice actors, but a few of the heroes sound very similar
    For example:
    - Puck, Windrunner, and somewhat Lina
    - Naga Siren, Queen of Pain, Templar Assassin
    - Mirana, Enchantress, somewhat Drow

    I believe Phantom Assassin and Crystal Maiden also have some modifications; CM seems to have a more pronounced echo, Phantom Assassin has something making the voice slightly hoarse. These make the voices more unique.

    This isn't limited to female heroes by the way, I believe you guys made a mistake giving so many roles to Sam Mowry. Yes his voice is good, but his range is limited and his heroes sound very similar to each other. Around 10 heroes are left, make them unique.


    TL;DR - Make Legion Commander's voice unique, don't make it similar to other heroes. Get Ellen to do the voice, she's awesome and only voiced two heroes.

    Not to mention her characters have been heavily filtered, so a human hero wouldn't require much effort on her part to separate from her others.

      I honestly want her voice to be burly, steroid enhanced and filled with hubris. I'm glad we're getting a female strength hero though

          Just because she is a female warrior doesn't mean she has to be overtly masculine. That kind of reinforces stereotypes.

              Indeed, it is one of the reasons why I suggested her. Both Prophet and Broodmother are heavily filtered, so I think her natural unfiltered voice would be sufficiently different from all the other voices in the game.

              I don't think giving her manly features just because she's a strength hero is a good idea. It doesn't really fit into the skillset nor the provided lore. Arrogance could work, but that all depends on how valve decides to shape her personality. The only thing I saw mentioned was Cyborgmatt labeling her as a "racist lady", so it is possible her personality is the same as Garithos from warcraft 3 (Tresdin's unit model and voice)

              It doesn't look like she does any voice work. Also Ellen has already worked with Valve before, so it would be easier to get her back on board.

                i just mentioned her because her character in soiaf seemed to have significant influence on how they set up this hero.
