    WTF Blizzard @ PvP Announcer

    Granted I don't PvP but seriously who decided on the PvP Announcer voices?! They sound like cheesy American sporting commentators... Kinda near impossible to take serious

    As long as the option to turn them off remains, I don't care.

    i like it, brings alot more atmosphere into battlegrounds and shows that its actually a war against 2 factions not just a place to kill people

    as long as theres no "killing blow, double kill, killing spree! I AM BATMAN" type announcements its allll goooood :P

    I can't even believe they would do a thing like that. I feel like we're being trolled really.

    I find it funny that the announcers all quite fit their battleground.

    I don't see what is wrong with them. The accent is annoying, but for an American game, what can you expect?

    It also is a reminder of what is going on! The warnings in-game can easily be missed if you're mid-combat or focused on something else. I welcome them, but they're a tad annoying.

    When I seen it, the 1st thing that went through my mind was "Lets play Huttball!"

    I like the idea, but I would prefer an announcer for each faction and related to the battleground. A dwarf and an orc for Alterac instead of a human for both, for example.

    Wow, they've actually added commentators to the battlegrounds?

    Now that's something I gotta find a YouTube video of some day.

    Same. Although Huttball in an arena set as a spectator sport, it doesn't fit wow at all.

    That is something we don't need, i hope they go back on that decision or at least give us the option to turn the voice off.

    I hope they have the dota announcements (which to my knowledge are Quake 3 announcements)

    Godlike!
    Rampage!

    I'd like this, actually. Would need a lot of work on the voice actors, though.

    I would loathe it! If there was an option to turn it off, I would, and if there wasn't, I probably wouldn't PvP.

    No matter what, it literally cannot be worse than these announcers.

    New Signature in development. Legion Windwalker is a garbage class that I no longer wish to play.
    Blackrock Foundry was probably the best part of WOD, but that's really just a blackhanded compliment.

    That's probably what they are supposed to be? There are many areas in the game where we don't take each other toooooo seriously....
