Honestly I feel this game would be a lot better if MIC play was REQUIRED.

Yes because getting whined at in Romanian is something I really like about dota.

I just can't understand people being against better communication in a game that is like 80% teamwork
then again the internet has thin skin nowadays

called skype,

lol I forgot people used skype for gaming


I have both skype and Vent for different groups.

That said, I would never want (forced) voice chat with randoms, especially in normals.

A) 12 year olds shouldnt be playing this game.

B) They have no reason to yell at you lol


Both things happen though.
I played with a literal 9 year old once. He was kinda cool as a team mate, not bad. My two friends and I invite him to play another game and to skype with us when we found out. Man was he annoying after that.


I know that feel. That awkward feel when you find out that the guy you're playing with is like half your age or younger and you're afraid that if you keep talking to him he's going to like imprint on you or something :/

It's something of a double-edged sword, as for one verbal communications are not always as clear as text that stays on the screen (allowing a re-read if needed), and loud, bossy voices can easily drown out voices of reason.

Making it a necessity would drive a significant portion of the game population away, particularly those with either a lack of means, patience, or confidence for voice communication.

Well yeah but there's much more productive players than ragers in the game.

The ragers seem to outnumber, but that's because they draw the most attention to themselves. Like if you're in a match and someone starts raging, you don't notice 8 other people are being chill.


It doesn't take more than one rager to ruin voice chat.

Right but like I said you don't HAVE to talk, just HAVE one.

Like no one's forcing you to talk, you can still ping and everything.

But when it's like an emergency you can say "wait engage" or whatever.

...What's your point?

If someone was 12 in 2005 they're now like 20.

Mic should be an option, but not a requirement. Not everyone is going to have quality mics or use headphones when speaking.

down side...

it'll be harder to prove if someone is using offensive language if they only spoke on mic.
