  • Elder Titan too mild. Especially Echo Stomp.

    The voices when he casts spell are too subdued. Echo Stomp sounds like "Echo.......stomp" when it should be more like "ECHO STOMP!!!!!" to couple with the explosive nature of the hero and his abilities.

    Have to admit, he always sounds the same. And due to the filters and the surrounding noise, you're not sure if what you just heard was a kill line or you just leveled up. A bit of a problem here.
    Heroes this user should seriously reconsider ever picking again.

      He sounds like he's really bored. All the time.
      In fact, he sounds like he's got a stuffy nose for most of his lines.

        Perfectly sums it up really.

          Agree completely. There's really no variation in delivery. The anger, laughter, sadness, resignation... all delivered in the same manner, and any variation there is in the delivery is lost in all the reverb and flitering.

          I could understand if the goal here was to make him sound old and tired and resigned, since that is sort of in sync with his lore. But he doesn't sound like that either... it just sounds like he's saying the words.

            Indeed, the filter choice is one of the weirdest yet. For someone of his posture, I expected something similar to Treant of Earthshaker. Instead, they tried to make him sound "otherwordly" and as a result, it sounds like he's at the end of a long hallway. There's no power behind his voice, which is the case with the 2 afromentioned heroes.

            Additionally, Jim French is a talented guy, but during this recording he was either out of form or steered in the wrong direction. As above posters noted, everything ET says has the same, monotone vibe. Some may argue that it fits, but I think that's backwards. A tragic character with a background like that should be booming with emotions.

            Overall, I think this one is actually below standard and I fear that just slapping a better filter won't cut it, but I also doubt he'll get revoiced .

              I just hope whatever they could do to them doesn't involve in ruining his calm attitude. That is something unique about him

                i havent had the chance to extensively listen to him yet so i might be wrong but are you sure that the break between echo and stomp isn't supposed to mimic the echo-theme of the hero?

                edit: ok, i just listened to it on dota2wiki and it is really underwhelming.

                sounds as if he was running out of breath between both words already. which is a good idea given his bovine heritage but it's still seems a bit too tired and joyless.

                his lore could account for most of it but i still feel that the mixture isnt quite right.

                  the pause between the words is ok but the "ECHO" part should sound like he's charging up an attack and the "STOMP" should have more power to it. especially since the cast animation is really quite good

                      He is meant to sound mournful and somber for a reason.
                      His voice could use clarity, but the tone is right.

                        Well, it's just that it gets boring after some time. You can hardly tell if what you heard was an attack, deny, move or kill line unless you take the time to figure out what was just said, and that's about 0.4 seconds of precious time.

                        By the way, his voice fits the older version much more than the newer one. Maybe it'll be refiltered.

                            Echo....... stomp...(!)

                            I have to agree, it's quite underwhelming hearing it.. I'd like more attitude and power to him.

                              So much this ! That guy is hating himself for what he has done, so he is pretty uninterested in life !
