Skype and other voice service listings for matchmaking
« on: August 27, 2011, 03:36:04 PM »
So since a lot of people are using skype these days, I think its only fitting we have a thread for people to be able to see who has skype and is willing to add and play people. Don't know what skype is? Never used it before? go here:

http://www.skype.com/intl/en-us/welcomepage

The Vampire Savior community has been utilizing skype to do matchmaking and its apparently been working out. There are also some alternatives out there to skype: good and bad. I'll mention a few in this OP post after the skype listing. Everybody just post their skype handles and I'll list them here in this post afterwards so its easier to find. The handle on the left is the DC username, the handle on the right is the skype user name.

Skype Matchmaking Listing:

Mightymar: mightymarcurse

RunningWild: RunningWildWolf

Deadlyrave Neo: deadlyrave-neo

Desmond Dellaghetto: themotioninvisiblesmusic

steamwolf: steam.ninja

Skype Alternatives:

https://voxli.com/

Downright my favourite voice chatting service. Its browser based, slightly interactive to provide a bit of fun to bored chatters, and is easier to use and lags less than skype. This I believe is a better option for DC players, especially since you don't really need to register. Its basically like creating an XBL party and just linking the webpage url to whoever will allow anyone to join. You can also chat with text if you desire. I've used this a lot with small groups of friends and its provided the best results when dealing with lag in games.

http://ventrilo.com/

The old staple for PC gamers playing World of Warcraft. I was going to create a vent server for DC, but I don't think its a good idea right now. I have noticed a lot of WoW players now use skype ironically...it seems to be the staple for gaming. I still prefer voxli though as its free to get started and no need to port-forward to make a server etc...

http://store.steampowered.com/

We had a steam group for DC but it was disbanded since no one used it. Very good voice chatting service, top quality and very lightweight on the internet connection as well as computer resources. If we got enough people interested in this again...a steam group might not be a bad way to go about it. As it currently stands, voxli seems like the best and easiest option.


And that's about it. Anything else I can't overly recommend that I know of, or I don't actually know of anything else on the top of my head. The top two contenders I still have to say would be voxli and skype. Voxli seems the best imo since its free, browser based, light-weight, and requires no registering or installation. Text and voice options available as well.

you guys can add me if you'd like to:

NocturnalSRK

I barely get on it unless someone wants to do voice chatting instead of IMs.

There is also Teamspeak: http://www.teamspeak.com/

It's pretty similar to Ventrilo. Some prefer Ventrilo over it but I find it just as good.

Does anyone like Xfire?

I got a lot of friends on Xfire locally and around the states that uses it, since it supports GGPO. I use that and Skype, even thought I prefer Skype.

Personally I prefer skype over xfire...the voice chat in xfire is a pain to work with and it just doesnt sound as clear as steam or skype...Steam from my exp, tends to drop a lot of calls but maybe thats just me....Skype seems like the best option considering you most likely have it if you are into pc gaming....My skype is kidextreme1...I really should change it but Im too lazy -______- lol

I just set up a skype a month ago to keep in touch with a friend in VA and my brother. I'd be willing to expand my address book for this purpose.If anyone's interested, my skype tag is blazing-gear. I don't have a headset yet so I'm limited to IMing. :)
