    Hi! I'm from the Internet
    So I was thinking the other day, how cool would it be to be able to talk with and discuss team ideal and matters live among ourselves. Foe example when we have a contest, would it be nice to have a live meeting about it and get the ball rolling. Or discuss other team mates accomplishments, maybe just hangout and chat with other team mates. So I was throwing this out there for the team to decide on. Should this be something we try out? I sent out a few pms on this and got a good response from it. Also my original ideal was to use Google hangouts but there maybe some who do not wish to setup a G+ account. So a couple members brought up the ideal of using the TPU team speak server. Great ideal just it doesn't support video which is no biggie. Also I am thinking of Live streaming it also on my channel for those the want to see what our team is all about. Kinda make this a commercial for the team and also just time to have fun with teammates.


    So what do you all think? Good ideal or not really? Also this is one of those if you want to join in great if not thats cool too.


    Poll at top. Please vote. :toast:

    Its a great idea! We could either have one of the TeamSpeak admins set us up a channel or possibly set up a Skype channel.

    Don't quote me on this, but I think Skype video chat is free as long as it is Skype to Skype.




    Don't see the poll. Never mind, I see it now LOL

    Teamspeak3 seems the easiest most effective way.

    Download ts3 here.
    Install.
    Open.
    Click "Connections" in the top left hand corner. A little menu will pop out. In the server address put "ts21.gamerservers.com:9207" and type in a desired name; leave the server password blank.
    Join desired subchannel.

    I will decide later whether I will join this initiative. You can go ahead organising this if you wish, no need to wait for me.

    Downloading Teamspeak3, now. And now. And for the next hour, or so. The wifi here at the bar? Sucks. May just plug my Clear hotspot in, depending on how impatient I get, in the next few minutes. Screw it, I'm gonna do it NOW! ...

    Well, even though the time has yet to change, this little 4G thingy is much faster than the bar's ancient 11g router. Oops, I accidently refreshed my network connection and it FAILED.

    I guess I will try again...ok, so, I restarted it and it has been downloading for 25mins. It is almost done. Good call, me. ;)

    You don't need anything particularly special. A cheap microphone and some sort of speakers would do, although headphones of any kind would probably be preferred. I personally use a cheap usb webcam as a microphone. I don't even have the webcam drivers installed.

    Arjai keep in mind that you added the "r" in the ts.21.game part of the address which is not correct. The correct address is what Brandon wrote:

    ts.21.gameservers.com:9207

    I am on now and waiting for one of the admins to be done with the game they are in and will see if we can request a private room for out TPU WCG team.

    EDIT: One of the admins added a private WCG room to our Teamspeak server! Now if some of us wish to discuss things we have our own room to do so.
