Voice chat
 
Seeing that this is an MMO will there be an in game voice chat?

SOE pulled this with EQ2 I know you could just use Ventrillo or Teamspeak but I have found the in game VC's get the people talking that are less computer literate and cant figure out those 3rd party VC's

This would be an awesome add-in especially from an RTS stand point..

Voice chat isn't as necessary in RTS games because control is discrete and not continuous. I don't need to hold down the forward key to keep a unit moving, I just need to give it an order to move. As a result, there is almost always an opening to quickly type a message with little ramification.

depends on how much attention you need to devote

this seems like a game where you will have thousands of units to control. more units might demand more attention and more APM = less time to chat

I agree. I have never been one for voice chat. It reminds me too much of Xbox.

Totally disagree; it takes way less attention to type than to talk.

physically, you can voicechat and issue commands to your units at the same time

having a chatbox pop up reduces you to typing and not giving any unit orders while you do it

I don't know about you, but it takes me under a second to type what I want to say. Typically there are breaks, even in a major battle, where you can afford to send a message.

Personally, I actually find it takes a lot of focus to talk in the middle of a battle, and I basically can't micromanage while talking. Alternately, typing takes relatively little focus and I can express myself quickly and in a manner that does not disrupt the flow of gameplay.

For my part, I certainly wouldn't use voice chat if conventional text chat was available.

I personally think voice chat would be a good addition, if it doesn't wreck the game.

This is another unimportant feature that, to be added, would require less time spent on gameplay.

If not voice chat but will there be a mass ingame text chat ?
