Does anyone else feel the tone between VO lines is super inconsistent? Compare "Here i come to save the day... or wreck it!", "Plan? I don't need a plan.", and "Sometimes you gotta make a door."
5 different tones in 3 lines, "Here i come to save the day" feels really flat, and i almost swear some of these lines were read by a different voice actor.
To be specific, the following are the lines I have a problem with:
"I'm doing this my way."
Let's get crackin'."
"Plan? I don't need a plan."
"Let's get to the fun part!"
"If you hit a wall, hit it hard!"
Some of the jokes feel a bit off as well, though less so.
I get what you're saying OP, but it's not just tone, that's a confusing term.
For example, "Punch First, ask questions while punching" has no rise at the end of it. She sounds like she's saying that for the sake of saying it, and she says it recklessly as if she doesn't get why that's a bad thing, which is cool.
On the other hand, "Plan? I don't need a plan." sounds more like she's TELLING someone this. It sounds like she's shrugging when she says "I don't need a plan." This isn't the reckless tone she has in other quotes. It doesn't sound like she's having fun in a fight, it sounds like she's telling someone "I just don't need a plan. Sorry."
To give a good example, if she had said it while going low on the "need" instead of high, there would be a huge difference in her intent. Something that made her sound like she would scoff at the sound of a plan, instead of just rejecting it casually, would be completely different, yes.
Basically, some of them sound like she's calm and casually being a destructive person, and some of them sound like she's reckless and enjoys being reckless and destructive. I don't know which direction Riot wants, but having both in there does sound a bit confusing, yes.
