was wondering if there is any public ventrillo servers for EQ2 users? i know that some guilds have their own servers but i dont think the guild im in does. My idea was to provide a server for public use on EQ2 users to chat and do quests with. Would be easier than constant typing, plus have a laugh on it. I am willing to buy a server with over 50 slots, all you will need is a headset...post your opinoin.............Tyler

the server wouldn't have 1 room u noob, it would b split into channels such aslvls 1 - 10 Lobbylvl 1 - 10 questinglvls 11 - 20 lobbylvls 11 - 20 questing and so on so you wont have 200+ in 1 channel, get a clue m8 u noob

Our alliance person just purchased a vent server on a 3 month trial for like 12 Euros.  Don't know the conversion rates but I don't think it would be more than 18 bucks U.S.

<p>I run a TeamSpeak server for my FPS gang, 40 slots and about $15 per month.  Never had any downtime and they're very flexible if I need to increase the slots for a planned event.  The guild I'm in runs a Vent server, but as Vent is needed for raids and the TS server is strictly for members of the FPS gaming community I've been a part of since 2000, the two can't overlap.  Personally, I've yet to have anyone on the TS server complain about the quality, with well over a hundred people that have used it for various games at differing times, yet can't say the same about any Vent server I've ever been on.  Quality of sound and management is much better with TeamSpeak, assuming that whomever is running it is somewhat competent.  </p><p>Now, personal preferences aside, I'd suggest a smaller server whichever way you go.  If you just want it for small groups or at most a raid you're in, 30 would be plenty.  Most people tend to congregate in one channel, though, regardless of grouping, until somebody gets serious and drags their group into a room.  Good luck with it.</p>

Seems a bit wierd even spelled out correctly though. <img src="/smilies/8a80c6485cd926be453217d59a84a888.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" />

<p>I'm amused by someone coming here, because they want a question answered and then calling people noobs and telling them to get a clue.</p>

<p>I'm amused by someone calling someone else a noob for pointing out a very obvious potential problem (ie. large amounts of people talking at once in a single channel) and then thinking that dividing a <b>public</b> server up into channels is going to actually make people use the channels for what they were intended.</p><p>I can easily see a bunch of vacant channels, with everyone congregating in a single (or two) channels simply because that's where everyone else is.</p>

Well ya know, just because he said he wanted opinions doesn't really mean he <i>really really</i> wanted opinions, does it?

<p>I would say worry about yourself and your guild and not worry about others on the server.</p><p>Give out the info when you group, but your asking for a headache otherwise.</p>

Just stay off my vent, I'm alergic to prepubescent voices screeching in my headphones.

A LOT of people dont want to touch voicechat regarding EQ2, and simply dont join guilds that use them as a requirement. If SoE enabled voicechat as a feature, it would come to the point where people would miss on groups for that, not in all occassions, but it would happen. I have no issues with using it myself, but that is my choise. Others do not use it, its their choise. All that wishes to use it currently does via guilds etc, so why add more?

I wouldn't want to force voice chat on anyone but I am happy games like counter strike and now World of Warcraft(WoW adding something seems to increase the chance of EQ2 getting things also) are adding the option to use it.  Anyone who has used it in raids or groups with friends will most likely agree that it is far superior to typing out conversations or instructions.  I have used Vent once in a PuG and it was a little wierd for me but in Guild groups and Raids it is so nice.

<p>voice chat is great for slow times, casual play and stuff like that, if you get a raid together, there is nothing wrong with having a moderator or group leaders on this chat, and then anyone can listen in and please dont talk. I love having my chat on, I will still leave it on my blackhawk down ventrilo just to hear the guys in there, soooo funny. its just yahoo messenger while your doing the dishes... lol. i would join a general chat window so i can weed out traffic in the smaller window i might miss. </p><p>from... a noob~ </p>
