I posted way up above on my feelings about vent and what not but I just wanted to give some people some advice.
To reiterate quickly i basically stated an encounter I had in the beta of a close group of people starting a ls and had vent. Only a hand full of people were in vent compared to the numerous people in the linkshell. For the most part the vent people ignored all linkshell chat. In their own linkshell they made. Thats poor leadership imo.
Onto the helpful advice! Just in case anyone didn't know this.
Anyway, to those that don't want to use headsets, you can just have the sound come through normal speakers and not even use a mic to listen. :)
Also, I use a headset for ps3, but for Vent when I feel like I have to get on I have a little mic with stand i put right by my keyboard. I don't need to lean into it to talk or anything and nothing around my ears to hurt.^^
Thats all I wanted to say. Hope this helps others that are still Ify on Vent.
