Thing is, I find when alltalk isn't on it just encourages all the longer serving members to join the same team to talk, which inevitably leads to steamrolling in the first place.

How bout we cough up some money and get a mumble or a team speak server? They're pretty cheap. That way for the majority of time alltalk can stay off and all the pals can use the voice service. Although, Korbens idea is good and it's free. Eh, just a thought...

Mumble

TeamSpeak

EDIT: Oh, and then the cool guys that aren't even playing can talk or listen in too!

I always ask before turning on alltalk (unless I have a good reason), and I am very prompt to get rid of nuisance guests. As far as it interfering with gameplay, there are times when we just want to have fun..so it's kind of something that you will occasionally have to deal with, or if need be, involve an admin. I am almost always fine with toggling alltalk at the request of a player. Please feel free to friend any and all admins and if you need one of us, there is almost always someone online to help you.
There is also this number you should call if you need help.. 508-556-3549.

Mumble is far better but getting people to on and having it work are a pain. Idk. I feel it kind of ruins the experience on BONG though since we usually mess with randoms.

I just hate how alltalk always devolves into a scenario where one team with most of the regulars is rolling over the team that doesn't have as many, while talking so frequently/loudly that even if strategizing via voice chat was possible during all talk, they wouldn't be able to.

And what's incredibly frustrating is, this scenario is pretty much impossible to rectify with votes. Of course the entire winning team that's dominating voice chat is gonna vote yes so they can keep rolling and laughing about it--so that's 50% of the vote. So if one single person on the team getting raped misvotes or just wants it left on, the rest of the team just has to suffer with it. And then if an admin like myself makes a judgement call and turns it off anyway, we get to be the bad guy.

I usually end up just turning down voice chat volume and cranking up music when this shit's going on, but I wish I didn't have to. If the gravity bong had been an alltalk server when I first joined, I probably would have moved along to a different server.

I like it when we're all just having silly fun sometimes but I also like being able to play the game.



This was a huge problem for me when I use to play , had five or six friends all on one side just steam rolling our team ( I pick random teams most of the time so I get stuck on the losing side more often the not ) and we didn't have a single person talking and it was just painful to play .

These two statements sum up what i have to say about alltalk

Havent used mumble or teamspeak, but theyre great programs. If we can implement one of korbens mods he found, I'm all for it. If the mods dont work, then I think we're just *insert airquotes here* "fixing" a problem only to create another with people connecting to the mumble/ts server.
