i agree with mizerable, the announcer never shuts up now

the cool thing about having an announcer is you only hear it when something cool/important happens =\

personally i liked the owned guy better

Hate the new announcer. It is extremely annoying, it sounds douche-ish, and I had to mute in my second game because I could not take it anymore. It sounds like a mix of the mortal kombat announcer and the previous one.

Also, changing "Owned!" to "Slaughterd!" isn't really an improvement. If anything, increasing the syllables took something tolerable and made it irksome.

The new announcer is TERRIBAD! Just c/p the Unreal Tournament dude because he's strictly the best!

I dont know how to describe it, its too much of something, and too little of something else. I think it sounds too unnatural, like its really obvious that you used some type of voice altering thing.

This. It's just a bit too much. It's almost mockingly "extreme". Look at the TF2 announcer, the announcer is priceless and it's completely unique.
Oh, and please redo Jana's voice.. her voice is embarrassing.

I don't know if it has been sugested already, but what about having multiple announcer options? Why limit it to one? Allow the user to pick what they would prefer.

Agreed! I don't like the new announcer's voice. It isn't my style. I had to turn it off actually cause' I'm not really feeling it. Now, as for a new voice, maybe you should try a woman's voice? Warcraft 3 night elfish?

Having maybe 4 different announcer sounds wouldn't be a bad idea. But so far the 1st announcer is winning =)

I must agree with people, this new voice is very annoying. When I here an inhibitor get taken it kinda reminds me of a robot chicken or family guy( not sure which did it ) parody to speed racer on how they speak really fast. As it has been suggested, the unreal voice or something close to it would be awesome. We all loved it from DotA. And the new announcer is saying to much stuff, like the greeting to the map and how much time till creeps spawn. Change the creeps have spawned to the game has started/begun IMO.
