    Question Warfront Accolade Voice Overs - Huh?

    Just saw a server announcement about a PTS event today where they will be testing Chronicles of Ascension and ... Warfront Accolade Voice Overs...

    As if the accolades didn't already sound like they came right out of Unreal Tournament...now they will have voice overs too? As in, an announcer yelling the title of the accolade in a "cool" way?

    This sounds...like a joke.

    If we must have voice overs announcing the accolades, I hope that it is at least a cool, calm, collected female voice and not some xtreme, awesome, 90's male voice.

    FINISH HIM!!

    In all seriousness, I agree. MMOs are not the place for this kind of system. Leave 'kill streaks' and the like to FPSs or fighting games.

    You already know some guy is going to hire the Unreal Tournament announcer for his addon, after he gets the bright idea to have "First Blood" be voiced.

    Don't take that small victory away from him.

    I'm kinda ashamed to admit it, but if Trion got Michael Buffer's trademark "Let's get ready to rumble!!!!" to start the matches.... I be totally okay with that.

    I like over-the-top announcements in a WF type setting.

    They could always give the option to turn it off, because I know many of you would despise that. Options Trion, options.

    I absolutely love the idea of halo/UT like voice overs. Makes it much more rewarding and fun!

    Tend to agree, I dont mind the voice overs as long as they arent run again and again.

    For them to go off once in a wf is one thing, to have a voice shout the same thing over and over every 15 seconds is dumb.

    If only they got George Ledoux to do the voicing. He's the one that played Duncan Fisher in MechWarrior 4: Mercenaries. He also aided with his voice talent to replay the character in MechWarrior: Living Legends, Crysis Wars Overhaul mod.

    I keep thinking of Unreal Tournament when I hear about these Accolades. Did anyone hop on test to check it out? I can only hope it's not gonna sound cheesy.

    Wait, how is this an issue again? Because it's similar to a non-MMO game? Give me a break.

    Eh. Just remember, in PvP there's 4 viable archtypes... DPS/Heals/Supports and Flag Runners. Only 1 of those gets kills. So Heroes of Newerth styled announcer driven Hat Tricks, Genocides and Serial Killing stuff only glorifies one of those, and the last thing the average pug needs is more qualification to go out Ramboing and playing like an idiot trying to get kills while all the others in the warfront doing the important jobs are even more unsung than before.

    Now, make some for Healers and Support, and some for people who cap/carry the flags... and I think it would rock.

    LOL that is fking awsome, I always felt the voice for kills in UT where amazing and a good way to keep the blood pumping. But the option to have a female voice would be a nice option to, for those that don't want the extreme voice.

    That vid is awsome.
