Normally when my team is playing a serious match we use Skype rather then vent so that I can hear if my team is distracted in the background in vent all you have to do is press the butten when you want to talk but in Skype theres a stream of communication at all times in case the slightest thing happens. What do you use for your team?

Keep all reply's positive thanks.

Vent. You can set that to detect any voice input, also.

I'm used to Vent from playing other games. I prefer it over anything other VoIP out there. The only complaint anyone could have about it is the fact that setup can be quite complicated for someone who doesn't know much about it.

As of late, the group I've been playing with has been using a VoIP program called Mumble. It's like user-friendly version of Ventrillo. It uses setup wizards to guide people alone on setting up their microphone and speakers/headset. It's also nice because there are quite a large number of people just hosting out places for free and it's fairly simple to get find a host to leech off.

The biggest plus to Vent is that it can run on a dedicated server. This means less voice lag and less call drops, especially when playing with people that are far away from each other. Also Vent has a lot of extra features intended specifically for gamers. Skype is simpler to get going though, simply because you don't need a server, so in a pinch it might be a better quick fix.

As well as Vent doesn't kill your bandwidth like Skype can. That's a big plus with LoL.

I agree. I find the current version of Skype is very resource heavy which can lead to a slow down in performance of LoL. Since we all know LoL is not competitive in anyway that shouldn't matter....HAHAHAHA...

Anyway, I advocate the use of Vent until Skype gets patched because with Skype its free.

Skype is not for gaming. It's for when you miss your lover and you want to see her beautiful face.

Your reason for Skype is dumb anyways, you can turn voice activation on in Vent as well.
