Well i'm a chatful person and i use voice commands for every thing/order etc.
The only thing that buggers me is that voice comms simply dont work.
V+2+3 = Thanks, i click em and my character wont say anything at times.

Voice spam prevention? I think it also has something to do with ZED time, especially when other people also used voice com.

I don't worry about saying thanks for heals a lot of the time, because as a medic a lot of the time I don't expect people to thank me every time I heal them which is on average at least one person every 7 seconds or something. Sure manners a really nice, but there are greater things to worry about at the time.

Also, it's a medics job to heal people, no one thanks me for shooting down clots and stuff as a Commando... ;)

There's a limit to how frequently voice commands can be used. Unfortunately, it also counts automated messages like "Reloading!", so expect to see lots of thanks for heals fall by the wayside.

This is the problem. Auto-commands should not be counted by the voice-spam prevention.

We've discussed it before, and yes it's extremely annoying. :(

By the way, please try to use a more descriptive thread title next time, it helps when searching.

Perhaps rather than 1 every x seconds, it's x over y seconds, so you can get 2-3 voice chat messages in before being silenced.

Because sometimes i'm spamming the "thanks" key to only have it work on the 15th time, and 5-6 seconds have passed, and my team doesn't know what i'm thanking them for doing.
