New commands?
Valve, you think you can ever add some official new commands with the real voice of the characters?
Here is my idea.
Follow me command.
Come here command.
Take cover command.
Open fire command.
Wait here command.
Heal him command. Like telling a medic to heal a heavy instead of you, the character would actually say Heal that heavy!
Use this command. For heavy when he drops a sandvich for a team mate, or when an engineer has a dispenser for a needy team mate, or even when you see a health or ammo pack.

I am more then willing to open my chat and talk with my own typing to tell a team mate something, like this sandvich is for you, or you should heal that soldier instead of me.
However, in the midst of combat, or if enemies are closing in, you can't take time to open the chat box up, and not everyone likes to use mincrophones. People also sometimes can't hear the microphone, like if they have volume low, they are deaf or have bad hearing, the sound effects of tf2 are too loud, etc.

Tell me what you think of my idea everyone.

Adding more voice commands would be overkill. We've got 30 of them already.

I feel like they'd be helpful, but I don't know if there's enough keys on a keyboard to fit everything. There's already 3 keys entirely devoted to voice commands. (assuming we're making this usable with the default keyboard layout)

Not bad actually, It would give me something to actually say instead of just spamming X+5

Remember the good old speak console command in TFC? If you wrote it, it was spoken by the announcer and heard by all. I'm sure its vocabulary has grown some in TF2 but different voices would be needed. This approach at least eliminates the need to modify the voice menu.

What about P, O, and L?

For new vocal combacts there might be:
1. I'm burning
uh, I don't have any other ideas

Not really.
I think the pyro, spy and engineer could use some more variations in its voice commands though.
