VOIP and why does no one have/use it?!

★★★★ Novice

pretty much what the topic says. i've encountered FOUR ppl that have used the in game voip. i cant understand how many pc gamers apparently don't have headphones, $30 will fix the problem. that or its ppl being too stupid to relise its in game and its T by default. i'd love for ea/bioware to implement a filter that lets you choose if your teamed up with voip capable players.

Ya, I just hit level 11 and I haven't heard a single person say anything at any point, ever ... I assumed it wasn't working :D

That’s a bit harsh. I just think people don’t tend to use in game voip because of strangers. They tend to use discord with mates.

Or you know they just don't want to use it and shouldn't have to be forced into using it.

 

But yes, let's immediately jump straight to "they can't afford a mic or are too stupid to use it"

This, I pretty much never use in-game voice. Whenever I attach my headset and jump to voice, it'll be with friends on Discord.

 

And looking at OP's attitude, I wouldn't want to be in same voice chat.

i phrased it that way in hopes of being proven wrong. turns out ppl are just ignorant and antisocial (see what i did there)

lol you really think i'm like that in game? *shrugs*  well evidently. the post was more made out of frustration at the fact that ppl would be blind matched, and then just seemed to scatter at the start of a match. its frustrating following ppl around doing missions and quests with no way of communicating.

You're being condescending and rude online. Not that that's surprising, but if you're like this on the forums, you'd likely be condescending and rude in game as well. People aren't stupid, they see patterns and learn from them. For example, seeing that 9/10 people online they meet are jerks therefore they stick with people they already know aren't until someone proves otherwise and then that person is added to the "not a *" list of friends. With no text chat, it's much more of a risk / annoyance to check if someone is a *. If you wanted people to play with in VOIP, maybe next time don't start with "people are poor or stupid". You'll make more friends.
