    Hey guildes lets talk teamspeak and voice chatting

    So as we know teamspeak has been a staple for PC MMO players for years. Yes there are alternatives so if you can think of them post them here. For our PS3 players unfortunately there is no option for voice chat. For PS4 it will have a cross game chat so that's a good way our console brotherin will be be able to voice chat.

    Now voice chat is not everything, but on the more harder modes it will help. Not to say our console people(and those like me who will be switching between both) will be left out because typing is still there. This voice chat is just like a nice bonus. the good thing is when PS4 comes someone can relate instruction to them if they have their ps4 on.

    Now onto the teamspeak. It is around $20 a month for a server that fits 50 people. We can change it later. It really depends where I am at but I was thinking a few options for our chat server.

    Option 1: We have a paypal account set up for donation to the person who pays for teamspeak. I have no issue doing this. Donations would have to be tracked so person will not spend the money on anything else. I have no idea aside from a trust system or screenshots for this.

    Option 2: One person pays them self out of pocket. This of course depends on the cash from the person. Again depending on my situation I have no problem doing this.

    So what is everyone's thoughts and opinons?

    Both options sound okay to me. Option 1 is probably the more fair option.

    I won't be on you the same server as you guys, but I can contribute still.

    Me and my clan currently use and have used Ventrilo for years. I think were paying $10/month for 50 slots.

    We may be moving on however. Might I suggest looking into Mumble.
    http://mumble.sourceforge.net/

    Mumble is an open source, low-latency, high quality voice chat software primarily intended for use while gaming.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    I have heard of mumble. Last guild for WOW I was in was going to switch to it. I left before they did. Ventrilo also a good option.

    That's bad news for me on the PS3. I didn't really know about that till now. I hope it's not a dealbreaker for PS3 players in endgame. I know in all other MMO's it's a requirement to be on chat to do things. Worst case I suppose I can put it on my laptop and keep it nearby. :-/

    and option 1 does sound good. I would def love to help out the PSU community on ARR fo sho

    Been checking on some host and found some good prices. Some as low as $10 a month. I may set it up soon when I get new headset and will prob need a few volunteers to check it out. I will go month to month for now till we see server status, if we like ventrilo(it is what I have chosen), and as we get more guildies see their connection and if they like it. I just want to make sure we got a back out plan.

    are you definitely starting with the 50 mbrs or do they have options for 20 or 30 people? Maybe it'd be a good idea to start low and if you are going month to month, you can re-evaluate if you need to increase based on feedback.

    I am starting with 50 as at the start of any mmo you see a flood of people. After a month it will dwendile and so on. So in two months I imagine it will see who stays and go and I can lower from there.

    If your going with vent, just throwing this out there for those who rather use their phone then their PC while playing on the PS. Mangler is what I use on android and on Linux to connect to my clans vent server.

    This is a long shot but do you think Apple has something similar?

    There is an actual Ventrillo program available for Windows and OS X.

    Cydia supposedly has mangler available for iOS. It was available in the Appstore but Apple removed it for who knows why. Don't know what other options iOS has tho.

    both, but for the serious end game I understand console peps dont have it so it is just a bonus for pc peps, or those with android. In no way will this have an effect on being able to do endgame stuff. When I played FF11 we never needed it, WOW it was used rarely during fight aside from someone yelling tank get it.

    Yeah, usually she'll be like "oh must be doing something so important that you have to get on chat oooh, Mr. Important." and then if I say something using game terms (buff, heals) she will just roll her eyes and mock me. :-/
