Ventrillo or Teamspeak are popular services for guilds, groups or friends who play online games that don't necessarily have in-game voice chat communication. However, if you're not keen on putting money into hosting servers on Vent or Teamspeak, there's a free, HD-voice alternative called Raidcall.
The free service enables up to 20,000 people to chat concurrently – but who in their right mind talks to 20,000 people at once? Anyway, there's also social functions to equip live streams to your account and share them with ease with friends or guldies. It's a very convenient feature if you need to link a demo of a certain raiding maneuver that a guild needs to carry out or as an example for what not to do (i.e., Leroy Jenkins).
According to Raidcall's marketing manager, Aviva Woo....
“RaidCall has quickly become the premier free group communication software for work, online gaming and staying in touch with friends and family,”... “Our ambition is to grow RaidCall into the de facto standard for powering community interaction, whether in a work environment or around popular forms of entertainment. With over 10 million users worldwide, we’re confident that we’ll quickly scale to new heights based on our free, high-quality software that requires little processing power, which is currently unmatched by any other provider in the industry.”
If you're not entirely convinced from a PR marketer's talking point and headline boasting 10 million active users, you can always give the service a test run to see if it fits you and your guild's needs. The software is also supposedly memory-light, so it leaves a very small footprint on your RAM.
If you're interested in potentially learning more about Raidcall or you're already sold on the software and want to download it and test it out, feel free to head on over to the Official Website.
