The other thing I've been on the test server to check out is the new voice chat.
While there are not that many people on the test server I have had the opportunity to chat with a few. From what I hear, voice chat will eventually be pretty cool. One thing they are working on is the ability to chat in class/gender...ie; female ogre, male fae, etc.
One thing I personally have found that I like, the fact that chat shuts off when you camp or quit. There have been many a time when I have quit the game and forgot that I was signed into TS. It is rather disconserting to be sitting in your livingroom and hearing a conversation from another room in your apartment. Now that's usually not bad...but I live alone!!!
There is a down side to that...chat shuts down when you camp. It's kind of a double edged sword. If they could find a way to not shut down untill you hit the exit button or type /quit, that would be awesome.
Well enough of my babbleing, I'm going to play...Naax is really close to lvl.

I've tried it out on test as well. One of the things I really liked about it was the fact that there is button that shows up if it thinks you're windows settings are screwed up when it comes to voice chat. You click the button and it fixes the settings. Should make it easier for people to start with voice chat than it is with TS/Vent.
Seems to have most of the features of TS with some extra features like game integration so you can see who is talking and who joined/left.
I don't like the fact that I can't join the voice channel from outside the game but they actually said that's something they want to build into the new station launchpad.
We'll have to try it out before we make any decisions but based on what I've seen, I expect this to replace teamspeak for us.
