Every good hero needs a battlecry. What's your favorite?


I think I'd have to go with this, even though it is a bit long:
"The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides of the inequities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he who in the name of charity and goodwill shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and a finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger for those who attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee." (From pulp fiction)

But it's a little hard to say that all right in the middle of a fight, so my second favorite is:

"My life for Aiur" (the protoss battlecry in starcraft)

Well, it's hard to go wrong with Spooooon!

Though personally I'd tend to go with something tricksy, like "Here, let me help!" or "I'll save you!" just to throw the enemies off. While they're trying to figure out whether I'm friend or foe, I'll be cleaving them in half.

Huh. That seems like a neat idea for a profile option, actually. It could get worked into combat every once in a while.

Your opponent shouts %yourbattlecry% in a high-pitched parody of your voice. "How pathetic."

I think I'm a bit confused. Is that assuming you've already shouted your battlecry, and the opponent has heard it and is trying to pretend to be on your side? Or steal it?

It could be a fun account option, just as flavor, I do agree.

Yeah, I was thinking of that in terms of a boss, say, who already knew about you, and was making fun of you.

I'd probably go with "Van Cleef pay big for your heads!"
