Sorry to bother, but I dont understand what all this teamspeak stuff is. I know it lets you communicate with your clan team mates but I have questions like: is it a downloadable software? When you've downloaded it then what happends? I keep hearing things about servers? Lol sorry about this fuss, just that ive joined a clan and I need to get teamspeak and I dont understand. Btw I dont have a mic, im guessing ill need to get one, thanks.

Teamspeak is a program you download and install.  You then connect to your clan's server, which allows you to chat with others in the channel.  Obviously yes, you need a mic.

Most clans require it because it is a far superior tool in coordinating action on the battlefield.

ok, do you play world of tanks through the teamspeak software or is teamspeak intregated into world of tanks. How do you use your clans server?

TeamSpeak is stand-alone software that runs in the background. You start it up, connect to your clan's server (if they have one then they can provide you with the IP, port, and any necessary passwords) and fire up World of Tanks. TeamSpeak can be configured to run with voice activiation or with push-to-talk, and your clan-mates can help walk you through what the different channels are for and how to use it.

Simply put, it's a voice chat program that you run along side of WoT to help improve communication between you and your clanmates. It is required (or Ventrillo, Skype or another voice program) for most clans that run Clan Wars, as there is no way to effectively communicate what 15 tanks are doing in a battle without it.

Download teamspeak and get on a clan site. Mine (BOA) and Right to Rule (rTr) have one too. Make sure you have a microphone (mic). Most competitive clans require some sort of communications software outside of in game chat in order to communicate more efficiently.

If you cant get it to work friend me in game and I will walk you through it.

Its a totally independent program from World of Tanks.

You start it up and it runs in the background while you play WoT.  You will probably set a 'push to talk' button, which you, well push when you want to talk. Kinda like 'q' in the WoT ingame voice thingo, but TS is much clearer and usable. Personally I like to use the ` key, the one next to the 1 with the ~ too. It's easy to reach and still lets you drive at the same time.

Just ask a clan mate for the details of the server, then you can add it into your bookmarks so you can just click on it every time you want to join.

Happy Tanking  :Smile_honoring:

Team speak is a group communication program. You fire up the program, then pick a server. Your clan will have a server address and password which they will give to you. You log in and when you do, you'll see a series of "rooms" in what looks like a folder higherarchy, and you will see your name in one of them. Drag yourself to another, and anyone in that "room" or "channel" as they are called can talk with you. The server allows for many channels, so each platoon of players can have their own channel, each company battle that is going on, a ready room where people are just chewing the fat, etc. It's easy to master once you are using it and poking around in it.

Yes, you'll need a headset. Here is a decent affordable one.

I this topic should be stickied, since it has useful information for those new to the whole idea of voice chat while gaming.

I'm not sure it's THAT much better than the system included in the game.  The biggest problem with the in game system is that there is no voice detection and you have to use push to talk.  I found this very annoying till i bound the Q to a spare mouse button.  Clans often play several different games though and teamspeak is cross platform so I could see why a clan might use it.  It;s only useful in a company game though if the entire  company is in your clan and already is logged in in teamspeak.  If you're inviting people from the companies pool it turns into a pain in the butt because they have to reset everything to use your teamspeak channel.

Other similar VOIP programs are Mumble, Ventrilo and Raidcall.

Push to talk is actually preferable to voice activating.  Mouth breathers in comms are a big annoyance.  We also don't need to hear your dogs barking or your desk fan blowing on your mic.  Push to talk is the way to go.

The quality of the built in VOIP is pretty terrible, as well.  I tested it out and found it totally garbled and full of noise.  My clan uses Raidcall, but just about any voice client is going to be an improvement on the in-game.
