Some people do not hear so well. Some people can not hear at all.
Any requirement or expectation that people use some sort of voice chat program leaves all of those people out in the cold.
I am not saying that I am one of those people, but anyone could be.
I had a bad experience with a guild one time because of their decision to require voice chat for some things.
Unfortunately, it goes back to what they say about the view never changing if you aren't the lead dog.
That was the only "real" guild that I ever joined in any game, and in every other game that I have played, it was a thing that kept me from joining other guilds.
Not that they required voice chat, but because they could, and I wondered why I should work for the guild and help other people out and donate gear to the guild vault and all of that when, in the end, my reward could be getting throw to the side if not just thrown out because I won't use voice chat.
Maybe I am just not cut out for this sort of thing.
