Parity in GSF

Well everyone that habitually uses voice is generally already in their own: Discord/TeamSpeak/Ventrilo/Mumble/Skype or miscellaneous other VOIP.

For everyone who only situationally uses VOIP, sure the channels might get used during a community organized GSF event where they're very handy, but they're hardly needed to crush a random team.

Touching back on sports comparisons, an MLB allstar player doesn't need an aluminium bat as an advantage. The T-ball kids are so busy dropping their bats and running away from 90+ m.p.h, fastballs that a cracked piece of 2x4 from a construction site waste bin will more than do the job.

There's a good point to be made about advertising the Discord in the game's chat in matches though. The people who could really benefit from the GSF Discord are the mediocre pilots that don't know that it exists. If there are only 1 or 2 high skill players, making at team effort to keep 3 to 4 people (especially these days people with proton torpedoes) on them can do a lot to even the odds a bit, especially in TDM.
