are you also waiting for the voice over in the nel living story?

Since they announced that the new LS chapter would be without voice over until the voice actors could return to the studios I was bummed.
I mean I totally get it but I don't feel like playing the story when I know in the future I can get the voice over.
I think I'll wait until they do put the voice over in or just use a teleport to friend to get in the map without the story.
What is your view about this topic? I'm interested to know what other people think.

    I normally only do the story once. When they update the episode to include voice overs, I'll probably go back and do the story again on a second character. But I see no reason to wait, as the achievements etc will be much easier to complete when the map is heavily populated (as it is now) then trying to do it in 3 months.

    I play without sound a lot of the time anyway, so I'm used to doing stories without voice acting. I normally make a special effort to have time to play when I can have the sound on for new releases, but then I'll repeat it without sound later on. So I'm not worried about it, although it is weird having all the other sound and no voice acting.

    I will definitely make sure to play it again once the voice acting is back in though, even if I don't have a character at that point in the story at the right time.

    Personally I'm waiting...trying to forget the update has even dropped! However its probably easier for me as I have one character who is the Commander and no other, and I don't really pay attention to achievements unless they're fun/can be solo'd anyway. I'm also not playing much these days so its not so in my face that I'm missing out.

    I had one character go through just to have something compare later. I also missed a couple story achievements, so I can finish those when the voice acting is added. Getting into the map doing the stuff is worth it so get in on that. There's time gated collections and some event achievements are already looking harder to complete as time passes.

    Nope, not waiting, I've played through on my main and I'll go through again when they add the voice acting. There's so much great ambient dialog on the map that I've noticed, that should be great to experience too.

    I'm looking forward to experiencing the voiced version but it could be a long, long way away. It cos be a few more episodes down the line, being realistic.

    Go through the story in a party with everyone taking a part and reading aloud aloud in Discord or Teamspeak. LOT of fun!

    Yep. I'm waiting.

    I play without sound anyway (well, no voices, effects barely on, Winamp cranked up). As for the talking scenes - I am still looking for a skip button. If anything... I would be more inclined to do it now ha ha B)

    I played through it on the episode's launch and I'll do so again when the voices are in.
    My earliest estimate: next year.
