i'm a big gamer so i have a lot of experience with this and several other online shooters, and i will say this to mags credit.. the way the game is structured generally makes the online voicechat MUCH less of a problem. the way it works is, when you first play the game you choose from one of 3 factions. sver, valor, or raven. (i play for raven myself) it's not easy to CHANGE this initial decision, you pretty much have to start over. at first this sounds like a bad idea, BUT if you fight for raven today, you fought for raven yesterday, and you will fight for raven tomorrow. this creates something of a team mentality where veteran players are much more helpfull to new players and generally more friendly, (since we're all on the same side) in most shooters the person next to you NOW could be against you 10 minutes from now in the next round, and might have been against you 10 minutes ago, why should you help him? it also helps that players almost never TALK to players from opposing factions. it is possible but it's not practical, so shouting matches pretty much never happen.
of course cursing still happens, but bullying is non-existant
