Is there any way for us to mod back in the old voice files? After 600+ games with Janna, her voice was something that was unique to her character, and a change is just heartbreaking.

new voice is kinda boring. sounds much younger now so i guess that fits her a little more.

What the... Her old voice wasn't grating like Kat's used to be, in fact I particularly liked Janna's voice... RAAAGE (ノ `Д)ノ ~┻━┻

j/k, The new voice suits Chinese Janna quite well (I switched all my icons with their art so it works out alright), but the old voice suits the original Janna much, much more. I can certainly get used to it, but I will forever miss my old Janna :/.

Ya'll should have made a thread with a poll to see if the community wanted her voice changed or not. I'm sure most would have voted no, and you wouldn't have had to pay for a new voice over...Just feels like an unnecessary use of money really.

Given that Janna was like, the #1 pick for all the threads asking which voice people hated the most, and no one bothered defending her (like they did the #2 pick, Veigar), I daresay people would vote yes.

Janna's new VO is much more mature and appropriate for the continued evolution of this software. She is now tolerable and I don't mind playing her. Much like the Katarina VO, thank you from the bottom of my heart.

I wish Veigar could be changed as well, I personally can't stand how he sounds, but I believe that he has some fans.
