    Default Use Skype. Vent Sucks.

    No rant. I'm just insisting that people stop using Ventrilo and start using Skype.

    Ventrilo is like the first attempt at software utilizing voice over IP and it hasn't improved since. There are no features, add-ons, or advanced functions. It's the most primitive software you can use, and it just flat out pisses me off when everyone in MMOs insists on using it over something like Skype. The set up can be tricky and unecessarily complicated. Levels are difficult to adjust. There are no contacts, chat alternatives, or collaborative environments. It's just "you're all talking over each other in the same channel. LOOK WHAT WE DID FOR THE INNERNET!"

    Skype is ****ing king. It's free just like Vent so don't give me any excuses about money. It's a hell of a lot more stable, simple, and it has a ton of advanced functionality.

    For example:

    1. Mult-user video chat.
    2. Chat if you can't talk.
    3. Patching in someone on their cell phone if they can't be part of a meeting at home.
    4. Adding contacts, categorizing them, and opening phone calls with multiple users.
    5. A hell of a lot more but I don't work for them so I'm not going to sell them too hard.

    How about you start making Skype mandatory for your guild and make Homebrew happy.

    Make me happy, you ****ers.

    Now you have no excuse. Go get it. You can then add me. And we can be friends.

    FOREVER.

    This.

    I know this is the reason. It just bothers me.

    I wish people would get out of their comfort zone and try something superior.

    I like having the Cyber channel password only and putting drunks in the Drunk channel.

    Honestly this game is so easy you don't need either yet.

    Just google skype vs vent and you see why people use different ones.
