    Crystal Maiden Voice is awful

    Fierce females are being traded for fragile, clumsy sweethearts.

    Rylai once spoke with conviction, not artificiality. Her high pitch 'telephone voice' is flimsy and irritating.

    I want to compare WC3 voice acting to Valve's.

    Dryad, playful in nature. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_GpjsaI4H04
    Sorcerer. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B8NOJ...eature=related
    Priestess of the Moon. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=16a0R...eature=related

    Notice they all speak with conviction. Now lets compare:

    Crystal Maiden. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9NJX0L2vtr4


    Tell me this does not sound artificial and stereotypically complimentary to female intelligence. Compare with Dryad. "Healing Power" http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...su81p-Hg#t=25s


    Please change.

    I agree with you. I honestly felt like they just ripped half the audio from a porno.

    I agree with you.The voice need to conviction. And, when listening to CM's voice, it seems that this is the porn.

    I actually quite like CM's voice. Windrunner even more so, I hope they don't dare touch Windrunner.

    I think it's interesting that there was little concern making every female character a dollish supermodel, but when it comes to voice acting every single female hero has to convey a strong personality brimming with conviction. Seems like us nerds have a very clear stereotype of what women we find attractive. Guess it's not even the worst find that the dependent and docile types aren't en vogue.

    I actually think the voice acting of Dota 2 female heroes conveys a broader range of personalities than WC3. I think that is a good thing, because it adds to the very unique feel of play most Dota heros have. Sure chances are it would take slightly more to find CM personable in real life, but her voice or percieved character imho adds a lot in-game. It's just awesome if you play her and she taunts the opponents as bitchy as she is and it is enraging if she is the opponent and she taunts you.

    can't really agree here. mostly all of the voices are great. only complaints i even have about ANY of the voice acting is that i have no idea what spectre is saying unless she's laughing and warlock and necrolyte sound pretty much the same.

    She's not bad. She just exagerates a bit with the character, making it sound a bit too much (orgasm).
