Bringing back VOIP



  • Of course it is an option, a simple “Voice chat?” tick box is enough for people who prefer isolation and would rather not engage in human contact. I attempted to suggest a solution for the music players which i outlined in my final bullet points but you havent seemed to have read it.

    I can only imagine the feeling of being beaten and ​insulted by a teenager on the other team



  • Everyone is toxic and annoying enough already.



  • VOIP was just an excuse for people to spam. It also worked very poorly. Lots of feedback and static. This game doesn’t need it. Most people would just have it turned off anyway.



  • This post is deleted!


  • I see, i didn’t realize how much the community disliked VOIP when it was about. If i were to rephrase some points in my post into a question then; do you not think localized, less intrusive VIOP + some of the potential suggestions i offered, such as server controls (which i also could default to strict rules, i guess), may reintroduce voice chat into chivalry in a less toxic and positive way?

    I’m not trying to be overly insistive or anything, but i am genuinely curious to know if VOIP really makes chivalry worse - if its not implemented right.

    VOIP in this game isn’t necessary for strategies on public level, which means that it would not be used for anything useful and thus people would only abuse it to spam and throw insults with poor-quality microphones.



  • I completely understand what you are saying in this post, but this statement

    VOIP in this game isn’t necessary for strategies on public leve

    i only would give a few points for otherwise.

    Do you not believe its possible for the playerbase for Chivalry to have changed since the removal of VOIP?.. After all, it’s the game has been out for about 2 years now (i think?). I’m not sure when VOIP was removed, but i know for a fact that i would communicate with my team using VOIP on pubs because i am a pub player! I know for a fact i’m not good enough competitively, but i honestly think that it could help the game grow somewhat, on a public level, if i had a more active open channel to talk to my teammates in.



  • I would like VOIP in this game.



  • If it was limited to like 3 seconds localized, then i can just imagine myself saying “come kill this guy” when charging out of spawn, or reminding people “stab not lmb!” when we’re ganging up on mason’s lvl 54 pubstomper in full cosmetics. I think it would add depth to the game, and if the vast public majority isnt in opposition, then woudnt a simple no voice tickbox suffice?

    After all, Chiv does have beta servers



  • i would like voip simply to spam soundboard stuff in pubs



  • I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel. I’ve got balls of steeeel.

    Definitely pretty open to spamming, but I find in-built voip to be pretty nice in most games. Nobody on a pub is gonna join a ts/mumble server.



  • OP, im totally with u. VOIP is decades old technology (remember HL1 counter strike?) and should not behard on the tech side. on the community side, yes theres always gonna be dumbass, but theres vote kick, among other things, to address said dumbasses.

    i would LOVE voip on pub servers for tactics. imagine this: youre trying to kill the king in the last obj in stones village but, as usual, the masons are running in piecemeal, a few at a time, trying to kill the king while agatha forces are grouped ready and waiting. what u need to do is mass together then rush as a tteam right? with VOIP, one can say “come on lets mass here, wait for everyone” [everyone gets togather] “ok lets GOOOOO!!!” and the team rushes together, spamming the war face/war cry etc. epic right? without VOIP, organizing a basic tactic like that is nearly impossible.



  • This is exactly why i feel so strongly about reintroducing VOIP, currently you can have amazing moments when you go 5v1 and come out without a scratch, but on a team-level the possibilities are endless with heroic charges and rescues, etc.

    When i used to play Garry’s Mod i exclusively used my mic, no typing. I’m not saying Chiv has to have an open mic channel for constant talking; but i honestly find myself making a lot more friends in games where there are microphones involved. 4k hours of dota and 2.5k of garrysmod meant transitioning through different communities and groups of people, but 430 hours of chiv and i only have one friend :(. All my skills were developed myself from watching level 50s wipe the floor in pubs, but im still miles away from being actually decent because nobody wants to talk :(, apart from occasionally on duel servers.



  • Voip would work really well with ranked matchmaking. That way voip is taken more seriously. I’d like to have it anyhow at least with an option to mute any spammers.



  • I never used the VOIP feature while they still had it. If they brought it back, I still wouldn’t.



  • still like the idea of positional VOIP where you could hear either teammates nearby or everyone nearby depending on setup. But it would have to have good checks and balances to stop trolls - clear identification of who’s broadcasting and working votemute/adminmute ability (and of course the ability to opt out of it)



  • The sad thing about these threads is that they always die :(



  • Yes please. It upsets me that it was removed.
