Played Death Island using it, quality is sub-par, not sure if you think this is rocket science and you know all these "secrets" we don't, but you talk like that. You don't need VOIP or Comma Rose to play as an effective team with strangers. I personally would rather not talk with strangers, heck I am pretty silent in TS. And as I already said, people don't even pay attention to your soldier screaming directly in their ear hole, a bunch of monotone voice commands coming off Comma Rose isn't going to change that. Not to mention, using Q to mark objectives will let your squad know your plans (though 99% of the time they won't pay attention anyways, once again why Comma Rose doesn't matter). Pressing Q to mark soldiers will let Squad Mates know exactly where to expect soldiers. For any aware player thats more than enough. I really can't think of anything else thats really needed, I rarely rely on random strangers to support me anyways, because most of the time if you expect that, they just fail and you get let down.
VOIP in BC2 was working until later it was disabled via update. If there was a problem it would have been better to fix it. So you admit that there are other games that actually use voip, good that's all the point there is to make. It doesn't matter if you thought voip is "good" or not the idea is that the option is there to use if one wanted to. Also, with a command rose one can use the feature to communicate further as a team/squad if they wanted to. If you don't want to use command rose and just use it's Q function it's there for use as well. But the option should be there regardless if you want to use it or not. However, others would
But I'm not seeing you suggesting that:
or any other game has to have a web browser to use voip though. So it is convenient and pretty common to expect that in game.
Oh BTW, looks like they also confirmed no in game ping as well
. I take it you don't think we need that as well, lol.
