Anyone know or have found any info on linkshells, will groups of players belong to a guild or linkshell and will they implement something so they can talk amongst the group like FFXI?..and voice chat, Do u think it will be implemented?

I know it's been stated that guilds will give missions and quest with guild leves but how will existing or predetermined ls's group together?

i hope not. i would prefer not to listen to high pitched, angry children playing. That and typing you can never misunderstand unless they don't know english.

If SE can finesse the translation thing a bit more for effiency and ease of use i will be very very happy.

I know they were saying something about trying to let people carry over (or reserve) names/linkshells, bringing them over to FFXIV. They also said something about trying to let people bring over their Flist. I'm pretty sure there will be linkshells or something like it... as for the voice chat I've heard people say no, but no official word from SE.

I thought for a bit that they'd go with out and out guilds, but now it looks like guilds play a different role. Or maybe you'll be able to make your own guilds at some point.

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

The way it was sounding to me was that the guild was more or less for doing missions or quest. I'm curious to see what SE has planned .

I think SE already confirmed the existence of linkshells by saying they would allow players to keep their original character names and linkshells from FFXI upon entering FFXIV.

They could always change their minds, but imagining any sort of MMO without a 'guild/linkshell/way-to-talk-to-the-groups-you-always-play-with-system' is probably a fruitless effort.

I'd be very surprised if voice chat isn't included in the game seeing as how it's a function that has become standard for MMOs and online gaming in general.

I hope it doesn't get leaned on too heavily because I have zero desire to join in, but I'm betting it's in there.

SE is putting an emphasis on the multicultural aspect of FFXIV, just as they did with FFXI. If they indeed intend to stress cross-language parties, I doubt that voice chat will be a heavy feature if it exists at all. Voice chat, obviously, cannot be auto-translated.
