TeamSpeak Setup, Taco Whisper, & Icons

Recommended Posts

What's TeamSpeak?/How do I set it up?


TeamSpeak lets us communicate with members for easier coordination.

  1. It can be downloaded from their website (very quick and doesn't require a restart).
  2. Click on Bookmarks -> Manage Bookmarks.
  3. In the new popup, click on Add Bookmark and fill it out, then click "Ok". If you don't plan on talking at all, you can click on More and set your Capture Profile to None.
    • Label is what you want to name it.
    • Address is our TS address: ts.ttsgamers.com
    • Nickname is what everyone else will see; please use your account name or character name.
    • TS_Setup.png
  4. Go to Bookmarks again and click the bookmark that you just created. During our raid times, you'll likely find us in the Raids section.

Why do I need to be on TeamSpeak?


You don't need to talk, just listen in, so that it's easier to communicate with our members. We're able to provide much more detail over TS, because the game will quickly suppress people from talking in map and say chat when giving explanations. Also, squad chat only allows 50 people into it. In addition, we call out animations of the bosses, which can’t be done as quickly in say or map chat.
 
We also determine our numbers by the amount present in TeamSpeak at the time. As a result, do not mute your audio; those who do will be kicked from the server and may miss out on the raid.


What's a taco whisper?


When a "taco whisper" is used, verified TTS members (see GW2 Taco) in TeamSpeak will receive advance notice of a map ahead of the public call. It's important that people do not say anything in voice or text chat, as only people with this icon can hear it; that way all members have a fair chance of taxiing. Any questions should be sent to a leader via TeamSpeak poke/private text chat or in-game whisper.


How do I disable "user joined your channel"?


  • Temporary (all sounds): Self -> Sound Pack -> Sounds deactivated (mutes all TS notifications temporarily)
  • Permanent (all sounds): Settings -> Options -> Notifications -> Sound Pack: Sounds deactivated
  • Permanent for only user joined: Settings -> Options -> Notifications -> click the arrow next to Client -> right-click on Switched -> Deselect All -> Ok (screenshot below)UserUserUserUser.png

What do all the icons mean?


  • GW2 Taco TacoPlain.pngTacoSanta.pngTacoRadioactive.pngTacoMordrem.pngTacoRevenant.pngTacoSpooky.png
  • Verified TTS members: After wurm, there'll often be a call for a "taco stand," which is where we'll hand out tacos for TTS members; people can also request them during downtime, such as between Tequatl and Wurm. When a "taco whisper" is used, members with this icon in TeamSpeak will receive advance notice of a map ahead of the public call. It's important that people do not say anything in voice or text chat, as only people with this icon can hear it; that way all members have a fair chance of taxiing. Any questions should be sent to a leader via TeamSpeak poke/private text chat or in-game whisper.
  • Philanthropic Events TogaPartyDonor2014.pngPinkDayDonor2014.pngToga2015.pngTogaVolunteer2015.png : These icons are given out for donating and volunteering at events. In icon order: Toga Party Donor 2014, Pink Day Donor 2014, Toga Party Donor 2015, Toga Volunteer (first given out in 2015)
  • Reflector Pro V4ZLhIz.gif, Condi Pro 5DVJNSn.png, Commander NlP6ePh.png
  • These icons show mastery of a certain area and carry responsibilities, as in icon holders may be asked to leave a map to help out in another or asked to lead in that area if no one volunteers. Reflector Pro is for people who are able to train reflect team for the Triple Trouble event, as well as call animations and organize the reflect team and differing strategies for every wurm. Condi Pro is for people able to train condi team for the Triple Trouble event, as well as organize condi team and teach husk spawns and tactics for every wurm. Commander has its own thread here.
  • Server Admin/Council Member DYSXjPc.png, GW2 Leader VbJWvAv.png, GW2 Probie DWG2a0T.png: These icons are for the GW2 TTS leadership team, which have roles covered here and more in-depth in the constitution.

Icons that are seen less often or retired


  • PvP Tournament nQLeR3v.jpgoeRLqRp.jpgfIiG41J.jpgThese icons (1st, 2nd, 3rd place) were given out during previous TTS PvP tournaments.
  • Wurm Killer (retired) J0LUaRV.pngThis icon was retired and is no longer available. It was given out starting from the first kill to a little while after wurm was on "farm status," where kills started happening more often than not.
  • King of Kings (retired) HlQCISD.png  - This icon was retired and is no longer available. It shows members who got some of the first King of the Jungle Kills with TTS. 


Disclaimers


  • We reserve the right to change the conditions for these icons at any point.
  • For time-related icons, we will remove the diamond level icons from the old record holders.
  • If you lose your TS identity for some reason, we will be able to re-supply your icons. Just contact a council member!
