classic rae had the best lines in the game
all they had to do as keep her voice the same, but they felt the need to ruin it with a filter that isn't even character-appropriate

why the hell does every character need a filter or annoying verbal tic

I havent the skin yet, but normal Rae has the most annoying lines of them all.

But perhaps that is not the fault of the lines themselves, but due to fact that Rae mains are the absolutely worst taunt spammers in the game. I SEEEE YOUUUUU!!! YOU RE NOT EVEN WORTH IT!!! X100 during the match.

normal rae is freaking great
she's the exact type of overzealous cheesiness that i like in a character and other than chucho nobody else feels like they do the same thing nearly as well

i don't even mind her meme taunt because she says it with such a great inflection and so much earnestness

The filter is pretty strange. It makes her sound robotic or like a computer AI, not really human. I'd expect that more from her Bionic skin.

Well, I think default Rae also uses a filter. She speaks through some sort of radio or walkie talkie-like device. They could've done that for Soulhuntress, but it might sound weird since her voicelines don't have a military theme.

I am glad this is more tame than I thought.

why are her boobs so much bigger though

I know this was earlier in the topic but I felt like addressing it.

Her chest is, actually, really large. They just covered it up almost entirely in her scarf (conveniently shaped to do so). If you look at her beta artwork it's disturbingly prominent, but it's the exact same body, they just tried to make her a bit more modest looking. I imagine this skin is going the opposite way for...Some reason. Actually the biggest change body-wise is her hips and calf which are either massively wider or her armor plates are quite thick; which I would hope she decided to do as compensation considering she decided to go the route of "Expose my vital organs with my chest, armored exactly in a way to kill me".

As far as I know, we've only seen one of her voicelines so far, from that trailer? Honestly, I didn't mind the filter at all. But whatever, I know a lot really dislike them.

Sex sells.

That is literally the only reason.

I honestly don't mind the filter. Then again, I never minded Loninator's either so clearly that sort of thing just doesn't matter to me. Good to know I'll be the only one not affected by a taunt-spamming team of Soulhuntress Rae, Loninator, and...who else has a filter people don't like? E.S.C Rocco? Abyssal Swiggins?

is abyssal swiggins really a filter as much as it's mangling voice lines into literal nonsense
i can accept sentry having a filter, even if it gets grating after a while, because he's a robot and for some reason robots in media always have filters (though clunk sounds nothing like sentry)

Abyssal Swiggins is just base Swigs voicelines reversed then the tone deepened, so not really voice filter.

That is exactly what a filter is.
