Ummm though im a bit worried at the end when he says "these updates/downloadable content will take place over the next year or so afterwards.." Hope that was really vague and the "next year or so" means a lot longer than a year. If you want this game to be successful and competitve we need more than a year of balance updates...like wc3/sc2 (2 most competitive rts games).
Well, I think the "next year or so" mostly refers to downloadable content like new maps and Demigods. Balance/bugfix patches usually aren't included when they talk about DLC, or in my experience at least.
I think his voice is normal
@Soccer194: please stop whining. Some of us check this subforum more often than General Discussion because it is easier to tell if the information is actually new or if it is a repeat, and there is also less junk to sort through.
