    TF2 Classes Based on Nationalities?

    After seeing the Heavy Weapons video and hearing him with the thick Russian accent, I wouldn't be surprised if Valve also made the voices of each class to have their each special accent of a location or group. Some others become obvious. Consult the TF2 wallpaper to see just what I mean...
