Thanx for the heads up Bacon. Fair warning, people have been banned for chatspamming before.

good, bad, I'm the guy with the gun.

I use their sounds to find the monsters. Chat spam suppresses the monster sounds. Also it unfailingly boring to listen to.

People who use their mic should be aware that a lot of people have "text-to-speech" turned on so they don't have to read every messege that's typed. This works out great for me until someone tries to talk while a typed messege is being voiced. They should be aware that WE CANT HEAR YOU.

I find unnecessary talking and typeing to be very annoying. If it doesn't have to do with the game at hand, i.e. "Hey, I saw a great movie last night" or "We're going on vacation in a few weeks to blah, blah, blah", then it should be kept to an extreame minimum.

Okay, okay. I admit that I do have a tendancey to talk too much. If I become an annoyance then please just tell me so. I will stop talking and start using text (at least for a few waves ).

If so strong in the force yoda is, construct sentences properly, why can he not?hhmmmm

I understand the principles of having voice chat; team coordination and such, but since we don't necessarily need coordination since it's every man/woman for themselves, I find it useless. I find the voice chat to suppress the sound of everything quite a bit, which in turn ruins the mood. I have 7 point surround sound which i really like and i like to stay in that atmosphere of invasion. I managed to turn off voice chat on my computer but since we upgraded our other computer with a new motherboard and cpu and had to reload UT, we cannot turn off voice chat. I don't see what is so important that has to be said that can't be typed. "Hi", "Hello"... all can be typed. Unless your having a heart attack and someone online lives next door, then go ahead and voice... though i won't hear it.

yeah, I don't tend to talk too much but I do like hearing everyone else, I would never want to see voice chat go away. Of course it sometimes needs to be in moderation, but it adds to a friendly atmosphere and adds a different level of fun to the game. I know it'd prolly never be taken away, but I'm with Pyro 100%. Keep it!!!

I don't agree what so ever. Alot of the voice chat that goes on here is one of the points that make this server so unique and friendly! Even though i wouldn't know any of you regulars if i saw you, i still have to say your all considered friends in my book! True, there is a point that gets crossed sometimes, but to totally do away with the chat would ruin much that is fun about this particular server/community.

What's wrong with talking to my friends? I've played on this server for quite some time, and I do enjoy small talk with the other regulars. As Eme said, voice chat is one of the things that makes this server great. Text chat just isn't the same. Typing takes longer, probably increases your chances of developing carpal tunnel versus using Voice Chat, immobilizes your character, and doesn't convey emotion very well -like sarcasm, which is the most important tone of voice for me, and one that happens to be nearly impossible to convery in text unless you know the person VERY VERY VERY well. On top of that, I always enjoy hearing the different accents of people from all around, it's very refreshing.

And I'll never pass up an opportunity to crack one of my poorly constructed jokes.

I can sympathathize with Voice Chat messing up Text To Speach, but there's nothing that can really avoid that. I turned of t2s a long time ago beacuse it was messing up voice chat. If someone is having a problem with the voice chat being too...chatty, they can always put individuals on "ignore", or they can leave the public/team channels, or they can turn off voice chat in the options menu, or they can play on a less chatty server. That's like 4 options right there.

I think your all misinterpreting my intentions. I wouldn't mind voice chat as much if it didn't always adjust the volume once someone speaks. Know what I mean? Whenever I hear someone talk, the music AND sound effects become muffled. It just starts to sound like a boom box on a trampoline. Whenever the volume of sounds adjust, it messes with my senses and becomes more irritating rather than enjoyable. I played Rogue Spear with voice and never experienced this problem. What's even more annoying is when the voice chat should mute when you click it off and then it doesn't work. Oh, and my secret message is to keep the chat spam down, at least until I fix our other computer in turning off the voice chat option.

So it took 53 posts to get my first Karma Rating...I should make more bad remarks [sarcasm]

Is this sarcasm? If not, you're suggesting that everyone else change how they play this game just to fit your needs, wich just doesn't seem feasible.

ya. i forgot to label that sentence.

[edit 7/2] I think maybe I been a bit biased on this though. It's because before this server, I would hear annoying kids on the game on different servers. Maybe some of you have experienced this too. But I just haven't been able to balance out the sound when people speak and I still get the muffled music and sound effects when the mic is on. That's why I have it shut off.
