Dissapointing Voice

Hello,

I've been playing DotA for years now, and I absolutely love it!

So, naturally, when I heard about League of Legends, I salivated like a hungry dog.

I played LoL Beta for the first time last night, and I was very impressed.

But there are some things about the game that, in my mind, don't live up to the epicness of DotA. And the first thing that I noted was the complete and total lameness of the voice for kills in LoL.

I especially can't stand when the weak voice says "owned" every time somone dies (even if it's not a double kill).

Now what's a badass voice? All of the sounds from DotA are amazing, and when compared to the weak voice in LoL, it's embarrasing.

I know it sounds knit-picky, but there's something about acheiving an ultra kill (and espeically a monster kill) in DotA that just gives me goosebumps.

Don't believe me? Check out this short Youtube video of a player achieving an ultra kill in DotA, and try and tell me the voice doesn't sound 10 times cooler than the voice in LoL.

I beg of you folks on the LoL development team to consider getting a different voice for LoL (or using the same voices from DotA--yes they're that good!).

Furthermore, I would insist consideration of not having the voice make a sound every single time a player is slain (it gets excessive, really excessive).

I personally find UT announcer sounds annoying -- I mean, he's fine in UT, but reusing him everywhere is tiresome -- so I'm glad LoL's are a bit different.

I sincerely doubt they will.
And that makes me happy.
It's time for something new, which is why we're here in the first place.

I don't want to hear some announcer from UT or another old game, if its gonna change, it should be original work.

Remember this is a retail game now, not a mod like DOTA was.

I hate the voice in HON, sounds like a fighting game such as Killer Instinct, really hope this game doesn't change the voice to be like that.

It could use improvement, but I want originality since this is n original game now.

i wouldnt mind for a new voice just as long as its not so dull like this guy and he dosn't say the same thing eveyrtime somwon dies. They should use the same things in dota like double kill, triple kill etc but a different voice or somthing. just not ownd ownd ownd ownd ownd.
