hrm.... Struggling to figure out how to change the character associated with the account, since only a couple of people ever met Kara. But this is Red / Spellfury.

*wave* I realize I kind of vanished a year ago and it's likely no one really remembers any more, but I actually have a bit of time for gaming again and figured I would see what people are up to?

I think DDO is like reading a fantasy book, you read what the characters say and after awhile you imagine how their voices sound. So in your head their character develops. With DDO you have the added bonus of seeing the characters perform in there role.

I believe if you then heard their real voice your illusion would shatter. So voice isn't for me I'm afraid. I understand what the rogues have been saying but party members have only them selves to blame if they they don't give the scout time to pass information.

I agree, I hate using voicechat for many reasons but thats the primary one.

I used to be in a great guild back in the early days of EQ, we played on Tallon Zek and roleplayed all the time.

Then one day we decided to try teamspeak, the ogres I had been playing with and who 'acted' like ogres, came across like teenage girls in voice.

Completely ruined my vision, and I think eventually led to the decline of the guild.

I usually just tell people my microphone doesn't work now.

I live in a dormitory with thin walls, within spitting distance of aninternational airfield. So...voicechat...not so much. If it's notjet-aircraft breezing overhead, it's the neighbors doin' stuff. Loudly.Particularly on weekends, involving heavy bass music. And copiousalcohol flow.

I believe there's a place for Voice in MMOs, but it's not for everyone,all the time. And, for me, someone who has typed their RP for over adecade now over ICQ, AIM, forums-chat, mIRC and a dozen other mediumsliving in a high-noise area, it's probably never going to really catchon as well as it might.

Two pennies from the Mazeltov.

Players who prefer voice comm in MMORPG games also tend to have poorreading and writing skills. That is certainly not the case witheveryone, however. Some generally suffer from the effects of a lifelongdiet of Taco Bell and McDonalds food while others are the children ofmothers who drank alchoholic beverges during pregnancy.

But seriously, voice comm is intrusive and destructive of the fantasyworld that  role-players attempt to create and maintain. Even ifit performed technically well for everyone, and we know it does not,and your guildies swore an oath to never speak OCC, voice comm givesplayers less reason to think and, therefore, to use use theirimaginations.

Learn to read RP game chat and your ability to write game chat wellwill improve. Or, play Unreal Tournament, they don't do role-playing inthat game.

(Edited last paragraph for clarity rather than die misunderstood! )

Ive actually enjoyed voice rp equally as much as text. There are times when your rp group can boil down to just PUGing because things move awefully fast, and there might be comments to be had AMID combat that you just can't pull off with the ol keyboard. Granted, while I play Uxor, I can't take advantage of that (heck I can't even use the /say with her, it's 3+line emote city)

Here, for my blanket impression on it:

I think people who don't like to rp over voice chat are too shy for that. These same folks tend to get skittish about getting up in front of people. But that's just a stab in the dark.
