Im used to using Skype when using headsets with my friends to play various MMOs. I want to lance up with some of you FWLers. So, for the uninitiated like me, would some one put up a thread on how to use Teamspeak and how to get some FWL premades going. I dont like getting rolled by premades when in PUGs. I must say that on occasion a PUG is fun and will win if coordinating but most of the time its pancake time.

Thanks ahead of time and I look forward to kicking *** with you guys in game

Here is a good link to some IP's most of the Beta Players have been using. Clan and Non Clan come together 24/7 and group up for drops.

Hey all... a little help with a quick question.

New to MWO and playing on a laptop... will Teamspeak generally work with onboard laptop mics or will i have to buy a headset?

Thanks!

Teamspeak will work on a laptop mic. I would use a "touch to talk" or key activated configuration; as the laptop mic will pick up all of your game sounds and background sounds and broadcast them to everyone else on the teamspeak channel. Just check your recording device in teamspeak settings. does mean using an overlay to make sure it works it game but map it to a key that can be easily used during combat, I use the Q key to serve a double purpose.

As Mark posted, use the push to talk option so folks don't hear you all the time. If you don't want the game noise to feedback then you can get a normal set of headphones/earbuds so you hear the game and TS but they don't hear your laptop speakers.

It also helps if you speak with a posh British accent, as per the Marik style.

The TS3 Client is free on their site. It's larger servers that require money.
