Please can we have an British accent telling us 'this tank has had it' or any of the other commentary we get during the game rather than an American accent. This is the European server so there is no need for 'American', they've got a whole server to themselves without encroaching onto ours. The Germans have a German, the Russians a Russian and so on, so please give us someone British.

Much appreciated 'Old Boy'

+1 the only time we should hear yankenese is when local languages are selected and playing an American tank

I have similar request. Make default crew sound use female english voice if you have female commander. Playing chinesse tank with female commander and default voice set gives me male english. I want female english. The only way to hear female voice is to switch to "commander" in sound settings, but then she speaks chinesse only..

If we're British we want to hear British, I don't think I want to hear Inspector Clouseu or that bloke from 'Allo Allo' if I'm driving around in an AMX...........actually scrub round that. I probably would. Being told my 'tink as ad eet' might be a laugh.

As a fellow Brit, I thought the national voice sounded quite ok, although I must admit I'd prefer to have Mr B. The Gentleman Rhymer doing the voices if pressed :)

Osn't the voice for the british tanks already kind of british? There's a mod that lets you set any nations voice as the standard voice for the crewchatter.

Set national voices on, problem solved!

Also game is more enjoyable, IMO. :)

Except for the swedish girl : she says "ricochet" when you don t make any damage ... as if it was a most wonderful news for you.

WG don't have to do much work either. Just steal them from Console as they have had it since the UK tree came. And added even more voices in a recent update. And there you can set the voices to male or female, and change them to English female, even if they are in a Russian tank. On each tank individually. So you can have some French tanks with Chinese, and some with Japanese female or male crew if you want to. As crew customization is what the update had a focus on.

But in settings when the commanders voice is set, it goes to German in a tiger, Swedish in a Kranvagan etc. All I want is that the default voice is not American but British

But what is british accent ? I got the strong feeling that from town to town the accent is different.

So we could as well hear american, as it is more understandable and since they took control of the langage.

I'd love WoT voiced over with more quality and with ACTUAL accents. The current ones sound boring and they'd be a nice addition to the new HD maps.

It's gonna feel funny - voiceover quality is gonna be down low and the graphics are going to look awesome.

The only voices I feel are great are the Russians and the german and american FEMALE voices.

And yes, I'm speaking in plural, because I find most of the voices really annoying - especially the French and the Brits.

 

There's just no feel of action to them, they are SO damn boring.

Spoiler

Learn from these guys :P

I just do the voices myself. Sordid perversion voices. Trollop roles of the tongue nicely.

Or just use a voicemod and be done with it.

I can highly recommend the official GUP Nishi Kinuyo voicemod for no apparent reason whatsoever. :girl:

Since most of the British army is Scottish anyway

I find the US spellings more offensive. At leat the voices can be set to each nations (love the Japanese 'Ny-su shot!').

Things like 'Armor' really wind me up as it's just a copy and paste of the NA server presumably.

I also miss the British commander saying 'The turret's knackered, we'll have to hand crank it!' - used to make me chuckle. Maybe some snowflake complained about the word 'knackered' but I haven't heard it in a while.

Antoine de Caunes should do the default as we all share the EU server.
A bit of Eurotrash style maybe even Jean-Paul Gaultier might get in on the action.

They are asking Jacod Rees-Mogg to do the voice-over :)  British phlegm at its extreme.
