One of the things that the "voicechat=doom!" crowd overlooks is people like me.I don't have a 70, nor am I even close (52 at the highest, 250ish if I didn't have an alt of every class). I'm not invited to these superleet guilds with raids and vent servers and working web sites and application processes to screen out morons. I trudge through 5-mans in PuGs, or at best the occasional blind-invite guild that is "small... but growing" (code for "Can u run me thru Deadmines plz lol").According to the anti-voice chat group, I should have to suffer through breaking sheep, party leaders who can't use raid targeting, people who don't know what "pat" means, for 4-12 months until I claw my way to the max level, where I still won't be invited to a guild unless I'm willing to PuG over and over for my tier gear, rep, or whatever else I need. Unless I want to buy my own vent server and give out the information to strangers, or take on the hassle of forming, running and managing a guild while simultaneously trying to level.In-game voice chat allows me to easily explain that I've got the healing situation under control. It makes it easy to ask "OK what's going on here?" in a new instance and have it explained without slowing down the entire group. It allows someone to say "sheeping the add" quickly so that I don't panic and slap SW:P on it.In other words - it's the reason I'm NOT quitting the game.
