No. GSF is Premade Voice Chat mode. If that level of communication and coordination is required to do anything but die over and over, Bioware needs to make changes.

Or they can have your "take or leave it" attitude and watch subscribers leave.

You must be new here. That's pretty much always been their motto.
There is no peace, there is anger
There is no fear, there is power
There is no death, there is immortality
There is no weakness, there is the Dark Side.

that's funny cause i mostly Que as solo, and don't use any VoIP of any kind when i do party up... when we succeed it's because we worked as a team, we set up a plan at the beginning when you first enter the map using the chat box provided, and as long as everyone sticks to it we win... when we lose it's because nobody listened and went all Cowboy chasing the Kill Count and neglecting the goal... no VoIP needed, just common sense and a willingness to stick to the plan and not get suckered away from the goal so it can be easily taken...
if all the great fashion designers have gone over to the Darkside, then i will too...

Sounds like a PUG to me!

Headsets however, bring the opportunity for split second coordination without having to take a typing break, hence why texting macros are not allowed in the warzones, and using them can result in a suspension of your account.
It is an unfair advantage.

why yes i do PUG mostly... but i will never deny the "Premades" their right to be included into a game mode that was designed to benefit that particular style of play, i for one have no problem playing with them or against them, bring it on we'll test our skills together in combat...


just saiyan...

Come to Shadowlands and queue solo as Imp weekends or holidays.

Last 2 matches I was in, the Rep premades won 1000 to 15 and 1000 to 5. They move in 4's or 8's in seconds to any satellite even threatened, never mind taken. My side had a total of 8 kills in the 2 matches, and I had 6 of those myself. If you're the best GSF player on the world the final score would likely have been 1000 to 50.

This just illustrates why the majority of MMO players despise PvP, and try to avoid it in EVERY game.

When enemy holds two satellites, you can affort ONE defender at the one you own, at most, and in all seriousness you probably should ALL be attacking, with no guard at all, just watch the minimap to see if the sat is under attack, the three turrets are there for a reason, to give you enough time to get back to it if it needs defending.


yes you shoul;d be attacking the sats not sitting out in the middle of nowhere dogfighting

i'm one of those people that despise PvP, and it's not because of being outmatched but because of the general bad attitude of most PvP players... really check my post history it's riddled with "i hate PvP" and the reasons why... but, on the flip-side GSF is the first PvP action i found that i enjoy, it's fun and i don't have to listen to screaming high-pitched 12 year olds trying to sound "mature" by dropping F-Bombs and insulting people constantly over a headset...
