Default 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.

Does this mean that combat is going to be slower then Starcraft where you need a high APM and good macro and micro to succecced? If so how much slower do you think it willl be? Also what are you considering the average a person can type per min?

I think there are more important things to work on. Even if you have never been on a ts server you can "learn" it quick how to get on it. In addition there are Games wich have a voicechat but the players don't use it because they have their ts or ventrillo, so it would be wasted time to develop it.
