Voice Game System

Example of the Voice Command menu

The voice Game system, commonly abbreviated as VGS, allows players to efficiently communicate commands and requests on the battlefield. Players open up the VGS in-game by tapping the "V" key. This will display a menu with subcategories that allow many commands to be done with only a limited number of keys.

Below is a complete list of radio commands. The letters indicate the keys to press to get the command. For example, pressing "V", "G", "C", "A" will result in you saying "Awesome!"

Global is a unique category that allows certain commands to be heard by both teams. All other categories can only be heard by the player's team.

As of version 1.0.905.0 (11 April 2012), some commands are game-type dependent. They are marked as such below.

When the twinfusor update came, so did new voice packs, which change the way you say things and the way you sound like.

Many players use VGS commands in unintended ways which are nevertheless understood by convention.

The intended use of the command "VFF" ("I have the flag!") is not very useful as the HUD displays the current flag holder anyway. Many players instead use this to communicate that they are about to grab the enemy flag at high speed, and that teammates should therefore not take the flag themselves. "VSAF" ("I'll go for the enemy flag") can also be used in this way.

If a player who called for the flag using the above "VFF" or "VSAF" fails in the attempt of their run at the flag (from losing speed, knocked off course, death etc.) they may use "VGS" ("Shazbot") or "VGO" ("Oops") and "VAF" ("Get the enemy flag!") to indicate that their run failed and someone else is free to go for the flag.

The command "VFS" ("Our flag is secure.") is sometimes used by a player after an enemy drops the flag to say that he plans to defend the flag at its current position, rather than return it to the flag stand. Teammates should not return the flag unless another enemy is about to take it, or another teammate has the enemy flag is nearing the flag stand for a capture. In the latter case, the command "VFR" ("Retrieve our flag!") is used to override the earlier VFS.
