So in the Q&A Ion asked for some honest feedback on why people aren’t using the integrated voice chat feature. I dont know how helpful this is going to be for the devs in charge of it, but basically here’s how I feel:
It doesn’t matter how well this feature works and it doesn’t matter how crystal clear the audio is, I will never, ever willingly join a voice chat service with a bunch of strangers. Between the toxicity, immaturity, lack of manners, etc. it’s just not ever going to happen. I actually wish you would just let me completely disable it so I’ll stop getting the alert that I’ve been disconnected from it every I time I go through a loading screen.
I can barely stand being in Discord with my regular raid team. I dont claim to speak for anyone else but I wouldn’t be surprised if many people feel the same way.
So what can you do about it? Absolutely nothing. Either accept that only a small number of people are ever going to use it, or scrap it and use the development resources elsewhere.
