  • Reimplement the ability to use custom announcers.

    I am never playing this game again and am actively dissuading all of my gaming peers from playing it until it is possible to use custom announcers again. This game is, and I mean this 100% sincerely, trash without the NBA Jam announcer. Thanks.

            Any word on whether this feature that is integral to my enjoying the game is going to be reimplemented?

              God I hope not. If you require NBA announcers in order to enjoy dota then you should really just consider playing NBA2k13 or something.

                Dude, calm down... It's just a custom announcer pack... It never affects the gameplay! I mean, I don't like it too, but, I deal with it...
                Please don't propagate that Dota 2 is crap just because you don't like a small feature.

                    Its not the end of the world as long as Valve don`t create nifty feature just to take it away later.Its incredibly annoying and they are already doing it.
                    Why not allow as to keep those features not for online but offline Lan games at least,through some tool like Skyrim Nexus.
                    I`m really sad I had to miss Diretide just because I had work and deadlines. Things that proof successful or entertaining but won`t be part of the game(patch) or are just going be taken out should at least be an option for some people to still have.
                    Dota1 I could always choose what updated version with what features at a LAN we wanted to play,why not anymore?

                    IMO Valve are wasting their time to perfect the game by concentrating on small features that won`t impact the game as much if it`s present or not.
                    It can be looked at later!

                      Why would Valve do that? Do they just hate us customizers? If that's the case then just say so, I'll never play again. I'd love to know. This game is horrible with the standard announcers IMO.

                        Hahahha, that video was actually pretty funny. I understand I like a very minimal announcer too, i hate the unreal type voice been listening to it for like 15 years.

The Acorn helmet is actually VERY fitting since it's natural shape is used. Also it is used for it's quality to withstand blows.
                        Wow, amazing insight.

                          Well there was an ability to force the use of the files by editing the VPK directly with the sounds/scripts.

                          What is strange about the whole thing is that valve has done nothing to stop people doing custom (only viewable by you) hats in tf2. Custom announcers are really no different to this. Sure someone might be able to use a buy-able announcer without paying for it...I REALLY doubt that was even a slim majority of overall people who used custom announcers.

                          Rather sad really and the lack of communication by valve on this change only makes it worse

                              look in the comment by MaZ to this http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfile...s/?id=74498851 . There's a method to supposedly make it work by packing it directly into the *.pak file. I used the patcher in that file to try out flex animations for cosmetics because there is no other way to do it. I wouldn't use it without confirmation that this isn't a bannable offense. I don't play matchmaking games with modified .pak files but to test stuff I have to use custom lobbies because there's no LAN client, so I guess it should work in matchmaking too.
