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.
OMG guild wars would be nuts and trying to counter act there moves would be a pain in the arse 5 on 5 id love to see the kid who thinks he could type all that up then exspect everyone to read However i will re emphassis my point I DONT THINK they need voice chat in the game Key words NEED get TS or ventrilo stop being cheap / Lazy. allthough alota games have it now it usually sucks and you cant hear the other guy so really you need vent or TS anyway :x
