Before playing World of Tanks I played Call of Duty a lot and being able to communicate with everyone on the team and not just folks in my platoon was very helpful I thought. Clearly people think voice communication is the way to go since TS is a thing but I think it would be nice if WG would enable voice chat in regular pub matches. Typing often gets people killed or distracts them, but often I see a scenario where I wish I could just say "T29 there is someone coming behind you" who knows maybe save a teammate?

 

Of course there is always going to be people who are just annoying and that's fine, muting people is already in the game and perhaps if you don't want this at all there could be a option in the menu to disable all forms of voice chat so you can play how ever you like. This way it's an OPTION, if you want to better communicate with your team the option is there and if you don't want to, it can be disabled. Perhaps disabling it would add a type of marker on your name so other people will know and don't end up talking to themselves.

This would be an amazing idea

Regardless of allowing people to disable it they shouldn't implement a voice chat function as its always 20 times worse than any text chat. Also worth mentioning how it would be a real pain in the ███ to enforce rules on voice chat. WG would have to update replays to start recording anything said which would drastically increase the size of replay files and thus eat up a fair amount of hardrive space.

As long as it can be disabled and is disabled by default I don't have a problem with it. It needs to default to off because the toxicity of this community would drive off too many new players.

 

Personally I get as much salt as I care for in the text chat.

Cool idea as long as you can disable it, but also feeds the trolls and the angry players

Nothing to be done about trolls, if they can't talk they type, if they can't type they talk, if they can't do either they TK you in game :I

 

Even though I suggest this option I wouldn't see myself talking very much in game but I would find it useful to help a teammate become aware of a situation or someone to help me become aware. I often want to help a teammate but just can't because for me to type the player a message it takes my tank out of action for the amount of time needed to create thus said message.

Unfortunately...for every player who would like to give verbal information to help a teammate...there are 150+ who would only be abusive to any player at all.  Personally, i don't see there is any use for txt or verbal communication in pub matches.  Anyone who wants real-time communication is directed to the Clan structures and use of VOIP communications like Teamspeak.
