I wouldn't be surprised if WoW was to redesign the in-game VC to something more similar to Vent or TS in functionality, especially with the introduction if Real-ID and the changes to the Battle.net community.As for "Where is communication in games headed? What is the next or new Ventrilo?"I don't see video coming into this really, since the internet is about being anonymous, so basically, VC is just going to get better, less laggy and better sound quality, but not much more, more than likely.

I wonder how much use the ingame chat gets used. It seemed like a big deal when it was announced and I even remember using in a few pugs but it quickly faded into just another bulletpointed feature no one used. Sound quality was the only issue I remember other than not wanting to hear every random person's voice when it was so much more clear who was saying what with text chat. Plus I could scroll up and reread anything I missed.I'm not sure what they could do to make it better. Quick change toolbar to change you're talking to a la whispers, party, and guild chat?

Problem with the in-game chat is that it crashes, disconnects and freezes the same time your client does. Stand-alone comms don't have that problem, so you can still say "my client crashed, someone else heal the tank".Having voice enabled guild chat and a external client would be fairly cool though. Especially if you could run the app in your mobile (i.e. Vivox) - you could just dial-up and join your guild chat no matter where you are - chat with your friends and discuss the raid strats - now that would be useful - and it would help guildies connect.
