    I wanted to create my own announcer just to use for myself and some friends, but I guess now that's impossible to do. I don't know exactly how to work with .pak files. I was going off older instructions on how to create an announcer. But now you can't do that anymore apparently.

    Has anyone figured out how make an announcer pack? Or is it impossible now?

      While funny, I really don't see how this is "integral" to anyone's gameplay experience. I'm all for supporting it in an offline mode or private lobbies at some point down the line, but...yeah. I can definitely see why they removed it.

        I think they removed it so more people would buy announcers, I mean why buy an announcer when you just import the same one? Who needs to share anyways?

            Can we at least get a comment by a dev if the .pak editing method of changing announcers is frowned upon or not?
