Quoted from Maurice:
During the second and third Arkenstone mode, but especially during botfa the callout "stage 1 complete" is heard at the same time as Azog speak his "orc language encouragements" to his troops. These callouts from Azog from one stage to the next make botfa a great experience and, according to me, this is ruined by the new "stage 1, stage 2, stage 3 completed" phrases.
These phrases go well with "into the fire" since no character speaks during the end of a stage. But during botfa it's annoying and not necessary, since Azog already introduces the next stages in a great way.
Solution: delete the "stage 1, 2, 3 callouts during barrel escape and botfa. If I remember correctly the callouts also overwhelm the "superjackpot" callouts during the Arkenstone modes.
Anybody please correct me if I'm wrong.
I get your point, although I wouldn't say BOFA is "ruined". There are a couple of cases where the narrator call out stomps on the Azog speech. I will adjust the timing of that.
I don't understand why you suggest removing the call outs from Barrel Escape, since there is no other speech except for grunts at each stage completion.
The "Stage X Complete" call outs replaced the "Super Jackpot" speech, which is no longer used during Arkenstone modes.
