yep it's separated from the game, more of an optional feature
Atlantica is on its way out, but I will say this: I am on one of the more powerful guilds on my server, Genesis, of Mycenae. We have a ventrilo server, and of the 50 members in the guild and the year I played, I have seen people in it maybe twice.
Voice chat is not needed. This game does not have a "team element" to it. Atlantica is really a solo game with required partying.
Sounds cool. I bet its expensive to get the right headsets though. It also may cause lag.
We are heroes. We are Warriors. We are legends...
WE ARE THE VANGUARD!
