  • Versus Screen drumming noise is crap. Please make it stop!

    Generally the music in Dota is excellent. In fact it's one of the things I like most about the game.

    There is however one glaring incongruity. The 'versus screen' that appears before the map loads that shows the two teams is accompanied by this dreadful loud dissonant drumming that is completely at odds with the haunting refined melody of the main theme and instead sounds like a focus group inspired advert for African tribal unity by Nike.

    It's absolutely shocking on so many levels. It's loud, cheesy and totally out of place.

    It spoils the mood of the game so much that I have to remove my headphones and look away when it plays.

    Is there any way to replace it?
