Why do members of the O'Leary Gang and other street cats talk like an American (Greaser?) when they are in a place inspired by the United Kingdom? Especially since all the more "civil" characters talk like the stereotypical "proper" Brit?

I'm not really sure, but I think the O'Leary gang are supposed to have New York accents, but I think some of them might be fake, which is why they sound weird. Personally, I rather like it.

Just stay ALL the way to one side, behind the line (depending on which side your standing. The line will be to the right of your wizard if you are in the left. Line will be to the left if you are on the right.) as for the ramps, again stay ALL ALL ALL the way to the side. You can even try to walk on it if there's an enemy, but I don't recommend you do that with faster mobs such as the clockworks, or if you are inexperienced. Good luck I hope this helped, be patient

It is funny though, since just looking at the reply, I can discern the general complaint that you were replying to!

I don't see a problem with the different accents. I suppose they wanted to distinguish the O'Leary gang (cats) from the good guys (dogs), so they gave them Brooklyn accents. Personally, MB is one of my favorite worlds to play, so I can overlook something like this. It's way better than George Lucas giving the bad guys in the Star Wars movies stereotypical British accents.

I guess that makes sense.
