Pacov, will your server always be up for public use?
I've also got r2p installed, seems kinda useless at this point.
Perhaps Stardock should provide a server for Vent chat too, or just incorporate ingame chat
Lukas - the server, AFAIK, will continue to be avaialble for public use and has a 100 player capacity. The owner of the vent is CallTheVoid. He offered the server as a public vent server some time ago and I decided to make a push to use it and get something going in the community. So, all the credit for providing the vent server goes to him (eg give him some karma ).
Frogboy made another post about getting r2p, so I think we'll be seeing the population increase. It's been somewhat helpful in organizing these games, but not a huge boost. We'll probably be better off when more people pick it up.
I'd be thrilled if they provided a vent server and maybe an in game overlay that indicated the vent server address. I don't think we'll see that happen, but I can dream
And last - I spent my time in dg today doing some tournament practice games for the lagwar tournament that I THINK is starting next week. I'll probably host another XvX vent game soon. But remember, you can always just chat up whoever is on the public server and see if they'd be interested in playing a game with you. Then you could do a 2v2 or 3v3 and you'll have the benefit of voice chat just like that! Hope to catch you guys later!
