Voicechat exists, but at present, a good number of players turn its volume down or mute it entirely. Why? It's not just the dubsteb that "ironically" or not is polluting warpgate chat. It's also how irritating, banal, and unhelpful its usual users are. If you want to have a good chance to have people listen to what you have to say, you can take a few tips from a public speaking course, which can be distilled down to some pointers below. 1. Say it once, say it clearly. Enunciate what you are asking. If necessary, say it one more time and only one more time. The "drill instructor" approach isn't all that effective unless you're actually yelling and in someone's face. Worse, most people who say "move the sunderer move the sunderer move the sunderer move the sunderer move the sunderer" say it in a sleepy, quasi-high nasal voice. This doesn't work well. 2. Say things when you have something to say. If you're just going to mumble about how terribad the scrubs are and how exasperated that your side isn't winning at the moment, save it for /yell. Or better yet, don't do anything. 3. Proper mic distance. Too close and we'll hear blowing on it, and spittle. Too far and it will be tinny and distant. See suggestion 1. 4. If you can say it in less words and still say what you need to say, say it in less words. Saying once or maybe twice "sunderer over northwest hill" works better than "wow guys really why didnt you see the sundy over there wow just wow guys this is terribad". You can't turn off the mutes that are already going on, but you can prevent further dis-use of voicechat. Do your part! Would you like to know more?
