On teamspeak, if you`re new to it, the wisest thing to do is say hello (so they know you`re there).

Then speak little, listen often. Bursting in with `where`s the fight? where`s the fight?` etc, will only annoy the regulars and you`ll notice it with the veiled sarcasm.

you could also try adding "Teamspeak Display" to your program list. its a little application that will tell you who is speaking.

Regardless of whether it's an open (or server supported) TS channel, there are definitive cliques that regulars tend to form. Breaking into them can be frustrating, especially considering that most servers ENCOURAGE the use of TeamSpeak to support better teamwork and mission-oriented flying instead of the typical DF furball.

Hang in there and continue joining. Once you're name is a bit more recognizable, you'll find those tight-lipped regulars a bit more forthcoming with information.

Additionally, i'd like to encourage you to read, understand and use the Brevity-code. You can find it here: http://www.simhq.com/_air/air_008a.html

Yep. that`s why it`s best to go in quietly. You have play a little `humility` like the young outsider wolf trying to join in the pack. It`s one of those things that happens in ALL group activities, not just TS.

Even though I`m an experienced online HL and teamspeak user, I still find that if I join any open TS server, i must go in quietly and speak only to say things like `Check 6`. Like you say, you`ve gotta give it time. You usually know you`re in when they ask for you by name in a sortie. It can happen within minutes or take several server visits.

When entering, I always interrupt the ongoing conversation by crying out loud: "Silence! Silence in Polish!"

Asking 'wheres the fight' is not a good thing to say really.


What you should be doing is checking the target areas in the breif and either attacking the enemies or defending your own.

Rather than asking 'where's the fight', try adn report whats going on where you are, then you will get better responses.

ARe you telling people that you have their tail covered/they are clear while they are attacking?

Are you telling people when you see a bandit and giving its position? Are you telling them that your troops are being attacked/clear?

Asking lots of questions while not contributing any information tends to annoy people a bit http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

'Wheres the fight/Action?' is likely to bring quite a few sarcastic remarks. Try to avoid it.

When I go online, I log on to the opposite team's comms, anounce the ace of aces has arrived, and advise that it's time to d/c before I get the points.

Well, if you use Skype, you'll be talking to yourself. If you want to closely coordinate with other people on the same server, you'll need TeamSpeak. It's free, fairly easy to setup and uses minimal resources.
