    Question Different Announcers?

    I know this is not HoN, but it would be cool to see different Announcers in the future.
    The one that we have now is pretty boring and nothing Special...

    Hints at other announcer voicepacks have already been found in the gamefiles. Nature's Prophet and Juggernaut both are candidates for alternative announcer soundpacks. They will probably end up in the microtransactions store, though.

    Don't forget the Dr. Kleiner one.

    So is anyone else thinking

    Why Juggernaut and natures prophet?

    Dr Kleiner makes 10000% sense, iconic voice to valve and funny on his own right.

    but Jugg and Prophet are pretty much generic by the book heros. their voice actors aren't anything unique and their characters are pretty standard.

    I would think it would be better to have an announcer like say, Invoker, who turns every single map event into a commentary about himself.

    Or Tidehunter, who turns every single event on the map into an insult towards kunkka.

    Or even someone like Ursa, who hates everyone.

    Jakiro? Maybe make it into a two man commentary

    Antimage? Who complains when magic ults are used or used to kill heros


    And if you're just going by voice actor, then Razor, or batrider or Skeleton King or someone else like that should have the role.

    I'm just confused by the choice, but maybe there will be so many more implemented it wont matter.

    You realize that they use those two because that's who they are testing with? Their VAs were probably the only ones available at the time or they just randomly selected those two. Those two are just the testbed heroes for all the shop and other loadout testings. It isn't just going to be those two, they are just testing everything right now to make sure they work and will likely add everyone in there. If you feel they must make puns or certain remarks, put them as suggestions or something. I think it'll be generic overall, though.
    It s also amusing you say that Razor is better than Nature's Prophet, when they are voiced by the same person >_>

    Either way, the choice isn't by reason, but rather circumstances and they continue to use those two to test everything.

    Alongside Kleiner a G-Man announcer would be interesting.

    Hero casters?

    I, for one, welcome our new Russian overlords.

    The characters are completely different though.

    Razor sounds like the perfect saturday morning cartoon villian
