    I disagree with whoever thinks Windrunner's voice suck, its great, it sounds playful, confident of her abilities, and yet shows her naivety and youth.
    "Strong" woman voice is Lina. "Ladylike" voice is Death Prophet. "Seductress" is QOP. "Royalty/Majestic" is POTM. And "Bimbo" voice is CM.
    Puck also deserves a mention, because its voice is "playfully sinister" while Broodmother's voice is "insectile motherly" and Spectre's voice is "otherwordly".

    Overall, a great diversity.
    I like this post...except that CM need not be a bimbo.

Also forgive me but from a Lore point of view she is a hero and irregardless of her personality she shouldnt be weak in character. Realistically anyone who is weak willed generally will not be found in combat. Granted I havent seen how they plan to do their lore in the first place and I can see some potential problems already with character lore but they just need to be mindful that its not necessarily that we want all of our women to be strong but moreso have confidence in their abilities.
    Agreed.

    I agree that WCIII was better. PotM, er, Mirana has the best lines from a female warrior this side of Jaheria (NATURE! TAKE THE LIFE SHE GAAAAVE!!!!) from Baldur's Gate II. "Warriors of the night...ASSEMBLE *ROAR!*" gives me chills to this day. Back when people played WCIII and most would go AM as a first hero, I still went PotM....

    But I don't mind the diversity of DotA 2. I have not played PotM in DotA 2, but so far, all the voices fit. Check back again when Mort, TA, and Luna get into the game.
    I don't think "Strong, independent woman with nothing to lose!!!! Fear my power!!!!" equates to "a diverse array", it's just as bland as humanly possible. Like Silencer's voice, but with less noise puns.

    I'm sorry but her voice is awesome, don't change it, especially not her orgasm sounds when injured. If anything, add more lines for her and it's cool.

    I have no qualms with her voice in the slightest

    However, when she dies, as one does as CM, you hear 'You only live, ice'

    This is the most painfully bad pun I have ever heard and I will pay Valve money to have it removed

    Just like a good portion of the early heroes CM is missing a great deal of lines, but no where in any of her lines does she give the effect that she's some kind of 'pornstar'. You're acting fatuous over the voice and tone of the character and openly claim that all female characters are designed to look attractive when this simply isn't true.


    Your original post contains no information other than "THIS HERO NEEDS TO HAVE CONVICTION. CONVICTION. CONVICTION." You use that word so much it might as well be a buzzword, it's almost if you don't even know what conviction is.

    Read any of the lines, none come across in the way you described Crystal Maiden, in general I believe you just have something against the hero's tone.


    Oh on an added note, inexperienced isn't the same thing as ditsy, not everyone can be a generic hardcore warrior.

    I suppose you're right--minus the slander.

    I guess I did make a thread earlier saying Chen sounded annoyingly pious. And although this post is somewhat misguided and very old I still would say there is valid intent. The high pitched dialogue is often used in video games for poor representation of females and maybe that is enough reason to change it. Though, I defenetely don't hold as strong of an opinion as I did. It still bothers me and I much prefer Blizzards voice acting.
