I avoid playing Kruber because he sounds like such an idiot. He has nothing witty to say. Ok, once in a while I hear a clever comment from him iirc. And his ‘time to go hunting’ is a thrill to hear next to me. But that’s the thing–most of the other players have many phrases and sounds that give me a thrill or a laugh or some kind of good feeling. I enjoy their personality. As it is, Krub is just Saltz’s boring slave. I feel like a bum when I play him and he talks.
The voice acting in the game is phenomenal. All great sounding voices, even Krub. All the other classes have so much character and wit. I even love Kerillian’s persona–when we beat Rasknitt and she says ‘it was worth it’ it’s a beautiful moment. Saltz’s creepy humor is so fun to play, his little sounds make me laugh out loud, I’m constantly enjoying him. It’s truly brilliant. And so on.
So the point is Fatshark should put some thought into making Kruber cooler. Phase in some more thoughtful lines. He’s just a stupid sports fan currently and I’m bored and embarassed to “be” him. “Kruber, always faithful”… you know who has dignity in that exchange.
