No Battlefield 3 VOIP Changes Today

DICE's Daniel "zh1nt0" Matros tweets that the Battlefield 3 patch promised for today will not include any changes to voice communication in the military shooter sequel (thanks joao). Here's word:

We´re keeping the voip as it is right now. By increasing to this level of functionality we would have to make the VOIP solution a part of the game installation, which we currently don’t want from a business perspective.

I'm enjoying the game just fine without VOIP. Since the game doesn't encourage deep squad teamplay, I don't think expanding VOIP functionality is all too necessary. Talking with friends is a different story and Battlelog allows that. Check out this vid where voip with friends does enhance the gameplay wonderfully.


I disagree, working with the higher unlocks in public play begs for VoIP. Trying to coordinate SOFLAM/Guided Shell/Javelin usage is a nightmare without VoIP. I play with friends most of the time but our schedules are all different so it isnt something you can rely on. Squad level VoIP solves the annoying "team based" voip that other games like CS have that people dislike while still allowing for teamwork objective completion efforts.

They really need to put VoIP in this game, there are a lot of newer players who don't know what is going on and it would be a big boon in that respect alone. Things just happen way too fast in the game to not have this kind of functionality. In the time it takes me to type out a warning about a threat from a specific direction while in a tank we could already be dead. Likewise typing out "HEY CITV DUDE, PLZ TARGET CHOPPER INSTEAD OF MAV THX" means we already ate a rocket barrage.
