We have been looking into methods of voice communication for the guild and watching what the latest trends for software choice are. There are a couple of options available to us currently. Blizzard has returned the ingame voice chat system and we have done a minimal amount of testing on it so far. It seems to be fairly solid now compared to the earlier version of it. This will currently be set as our default method of communication ingame. There are a few voice and text channels available to us both in game and outside of it. We all know the /g Guild chat. Well now there is a voice version of it as well. You can find it by opening the Guild window (by pushing J), making sure you are on the "Chat" tab and then clicking the headset icon located on the top right of that window. There is also now a Cavaliers of Virtue community chat channel with text and voice as well. Currently you access it using the same methods, opening the "Guild & Communities" window (or push the J key) If you do not have a tab on the left side of that window that is blue and says "Cavaliers of Virtue" then click this link https://blizzard.com/invite/7KxMKSvBP This will get you into our Community chat. The same methods are available as in the Guild chat. There is a headset icon in the top right of the window of the Chat tab. Another method to reach all this is by pushing the "T" key. This will bring up a window called "Chat Channels" There you can see all the channels, who is in them, and click the headsets to voice chat. All we ask is if you have a noisy background, please use the "Push to Talk" feature by clicking on the "Settings" button.
There is another method which will allow us to communicate both inside and outside of the game and that method is Discord. We have an official Discord server, which does not cost the guild or any players money to use. Discord allows users to communicate via text, voice, and even video while ingame or out of game as well as it has a free mobile app which allows all of the said above too. This could easily become or main line of communication for the guild but that is yet to be determined. Whats the catch? User would have to have an extra program running. No different from the Teamspeak days though really. But wait, is that a catch? You don't even need the Discord program installed in your computer if you don't want to. You can also run all this from your web browser if you so choose. The link for our Discord server is here https://discord.gg/MhhUYXs The same rules apply here as they are for the Community and Guild chat channels.
