Sometimes I really wished everyone used the in game voice chat. I play LOTRO on the side casually and they have a built in voice chat as well. In that game, EVERYONE uses the voice chat. Every single pug I join, everyone is using the chat. Pugs in that game are way more coordinated because even the most casual people turn their voice chat on. It is really amazing actually and I love being able to easily communicate with any group I join.People in WoW are too cool for school or something to use it. Not sure why.

the problem with the ingame voice Blizzard uses is it has the crappiest codecs I've ever heard.

when it came out it sucked. people tried it and didn't like it, so they stuck to vent. it has nothing to do with being 'too cool.' different games evolve differently. for wow, if you plan on raiding you need to have vent. i don't care if you can't talk, you need to be able to listen. and if you can talk, you might want to consider being quiet and listening anyway. seriously though, if you're 80 and you pug and you get an attitude about getting on vent, you're getting kicked. i don't care how leet you are with your 6k gear score and that you've got every achievement for the boss on every alt, you need to be able to hear how we're going to do it this time.

This and if the gameservers are down or the user gets disconnected midfight (I am refering to you Outland-EU!!) you have no means of telling your raid that you are actually able to login soon...
