Hi folks. ^^
I was chatting with some of my buddies in a blitzkrieg match and we got on this topic.
I got the idea because some friends got me to try "Team Fortress 2"
and this game has the official Steam/Valve app's chat where you can chat with anyone in your game.
(to the mods: I hope posting this gamename does not violate the rules,
I just wanted to post a valid example of a game with this feature)
If you could use the microphone to team chat at the press of a button...or use it to 'all chat' like the NF text chat does...that would be cool
I know we have teamspeak and vent, but these are set up by fleets,
and because of this, they aren't able to be used effectively except for fleet battles and harbour assaults.
I envision an optional voice feature (you can turn it off if it's making you lag too much ^^)
so that players can communicate better.
I think I'd personally love to hear some of my NF friends talk...
It would feel more personal and I could imagine who I'm talking to.
Why don't we just make it so that the mic chat could use the same options as the text chat,
i.e. whisper, all/team/fleet chat, reply, /number (ex.110) etc.
Perhaps these commands could be added:
/C for text chat ... /V for voice chat
Please weigh in on this for me. I've had a number of people who said they'd support this.
I also want to stress the fact that this should be optional to avoid lag.
If somebody's PC can't handle it they should be able to just type " /T "
to get back to text chat and F10 to turn the voice option off.
Thanks for your time,
