    I’m not sure what kind of perfect naive world you live in, but that will not happen.

    A VOIP system will simply be abused by the autistic 12 year olds throughout agon either screaming down their mic or blasting music for everyone to hear.

    Can you imagine a 40v40 siege with everyone screaming through their mic? What a fucking headache!

    Not to mention the performance issues that will come as a result.

    I think BPG have more important things to worry about than in game voice chat. Discord does that for us.

    I see only fun things for a better game! If you don't want to heard you can mute everyone and the game will be like now! Simple! We need overhead speach too! This is the only mmo sandbox where is impossible to speak with someone less then you wishpter him = crazy!

    Proximity based voice chat would be unbelievably funny but at this stage, such a waste of dev time.

    In a game like df every1 would mute in game voice chat within a few hours because there is a bunch of retards that would run around screaming down the mic constantly, it would be a pointless thing to put into the game.

    Exactly. Other games make it work just fine and it's great for streaming / YouTube exposure.

    VoIP is a more important feature than we realise, methinks.

    Trolling brings a wide audience. Trollers and those to be trolled.

    1 quick viral video of someone running around a tree, or a video of someone scaring someone farming, and you get streamers/players in droves.


    But, if with it comes lag, then I'm not interested.

    trolling does not require stupid happening with voice.

    Do you understand how youtube works? Do you understand what people look for when creating content (sorry your 1337 pvp skillz videos aren't content)? Do you understand the population that even smaller content creators bring with them to games? Do you understand a game needs more then "OMG PVP MUST PVP VPVPVPVPVPVPVP"? Do you understand the different types of content that even simple voice chat brings? I would assume you aren't that ignorant and just being typical darkfall troll, but theres a chance you actually are so these are honest questions.

    Also, how would voice negatively effect you (and claiming you think it wouldn't be an option to have on/off, isn't an option, i know you can't be that dumb)? What negative impacts would it bring to the game?

    There are 3 negative impacts it would bring to the game:

    If you don't turn it off for any reason (either you forget, don't know about it or don't know how) people could start screaming in voip, this would be especially off putting during sieges + for new players.

    The time spent implementing it could be spent doing something else (most people would end up turning it off so what would be the point).

    It would require some sort of support, so could cost more money / cause delay on the sever (although likely very small if any), also DF1 had some bugs to do with sound so there might be some issues there (although doubtful).
