    BF3-TS3> Now with Team & Squad VOIP

    Ok, so with some not-so-recent additions to the TS3 plugin, clients are now able to speak to only their channel, or to the entire channel family. This allows you to be in your squad channel, and speak to the entire team if necessary. Here's how:

    Step 1:

    In Teamspeak 3, go into Tools > Whisper Lists.


    Step 2:

    Click New, and press the button you want to use for "Push-To-Talk" for your team.

    Step 3:

    Change the drop-downs to be as such:
    Whisper to: Groups
    Group Whisper Type: All Client
    Group Whisper Target: Complete Channel Family

    And now you're done. Whenever you press the key, the team should hear something like "Imisnew2 Whisper" then your message. Please use this feature sparingly.

    Interesting. Great feature -- probably will be abused; would I be correct to assume that there is no hack to get it to work only for those designated by BF3 as squad leaders? That would be amazing.

    Thanks for this! I mean I have been waiting for something like this since they made the change to squad voip only in TS. No offence but that choice almost ruined TPG's BF3 server for me but trying harder and better coordination with my squad helped me get through that but now I think we will see more coherent teams for sure.

    I have a few questions though. Regarding people stuck in squads with no one on TS (which happens often) what is the general rule of thumb with those people? How much can they use it and how many people will be on the chat because if it is just a few people on using this feature how useful would it really be? also in the midst of battle it could get quite confusing so is it possible that some kind of call sign system that could be implemented because when you tested this last night I was rather confused as to who just spoke.

    (I did rethink my last sentence and actually i think i wont have much of a problem because i do have a second monitor in which i place all my voip but it still applies to many others who don't have a duel monitor set up)

    Re: BF3-TS3> Now with Team & Squad VOIP

    My suggestion is the following:

    Only one person from each squad should use this feature, preferably the squad leader.
    The squad representative should always try to identify their squad such as, Squad Alpha going to Flag B or Squad Bravo needs assistance in electrical lockers. Really, with the new markers on flags, squad leaders should be able to see orders on specific flags so this should cut down on some of the chatter.
    This should only be used when needed to cut down on confusion and chatter.
    If you’re the only one on TS in a squad and you’re not the squad leader, let them know you can communicate when needed with others on TS (and encourage them to get on it). Some people think they need a mic to use TS. It’s helpful but not necessary, they can still listen in.

    It is possible to make it "Squad Leader Only", but this relies on people marking themselves as a squad leader, via another hot-key.

    hmmm ... gonna give it a try ...

    Folks want to remember that V (if you use the default in BF3) is used to switch your firing mode.

    I set it up last week, but I wasn't SL and I didn't hear anyone using it. I am looking forward to being on when folks are using it.

    I have it set up on mine, but I'm hardly ever SL, so I don't use it too much.
