    Default Vivox, a new feature good or bad idea?

    Vivox has brought voice communication to another MMORPG with today's news that Ndoors Interactive's Atlantica Online now offers the feature to its players.

    What can you say about this?

    Well this feature helps us have live conversation with our friends and colleagues, etc. it is quite fun but not for me atm. my mic broke down. It wouldn't matter if its in game or just in the site. What's important, it should be working all the time.

    If it was in game... are you not annoyed with other sounds in the game?

    making it an in-game feature will be difficult, as it requires more coding and also the compatibility issues, so it's better to make it a 3rd-party program

    If it will be made into a 3rd party program then it will be useless since there are already gadgets that allow players to chat with each other.

    I think this will be available only in the main site and not in the game... If that happen the game will be laggy and another it will take time in coding it while the live server of the game is still running..
    I just can't sit any other way than this. If I sit the way other people do, my reasoning ability will drops by 40%

    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.

    mmm you got a point, the game is entirely turn based, so there's no need for voice chat for team coordination compared to real time rpg battles, unless they use the voice chat for just socializing with other players

    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!
