I downloaded the teamspeak app today and am registered on the site. Sometime this weekend or next week I'll jump into a battle and let you guys know how that works. Chi, you'll be interested to know that on the forums they were tearing some guy apart about his over the top yelling at some other guy who didn't follow his orders (and who apparently know what was waiting for him on the other side of the woods if he did..). His excuse was he gets angry when he drinks. The guy he was jumping on was one of the senior members of the site.
.who promptly put him on probation for several weeks.
I've read of similar incidents on the forums.
I have teamspeak downloaded, and am also registered at GCM---but I have never used either.
I don't have a pair of headphones though.
I'm not opposed to using Teamspeak----I do think that the courier system seems a bit more "period realistic" than Teamspeak does. Written orders/comms are often open to interpretation--something which was not unheard of in warfare of the period.
I would not be a fan though of playing on Teamspeak and being yelled at by some a - - hole such as the one described above.
