Chat service for multiplayer games
RaidCall is one of those applications that become a must for any worthy gamer, as it allows players to chat with their game mates or members of their same clan in real tame and without any delay.
The Skype for videogames.
Online multiplayer games like World of Tanks, Call of Duty or League of Legends require permanent and uninterrupted communication between players to be able to jointly plan strategies and guarantee the final victory. And that's where RaidCall for Windows comes in.
How to use RaidCall in online games
Once we're logged into the application, from the main interface we'll be able to visit rooms that are specialized in different video games, take a look at the groups we might be interested in, using the search box, or creating our very own.
For such purpose, we only have to choose the game our group's going to be about, choose an appropriate name and the group's target. We'll only have to wait for our game mates to join in.
World of Warplanes, Minecraft, WoW... the game of your choice.
If that weren't enough, we can configure our group, adding passwords to only allow the players of our choice to join and create blacklists to make no one comes snooping around.
RaidCall's points system
RaidCall also has a rather social nature and its users can compete between themselves using the application's points system, allowing them to increase their user level.
Climb to the top of RaidCall's social pyramid.
For every hour they spend online, each gamer receives a point (maximum of 24 per day) and each level has its own threshold of points, from level 1 with 0 points to level 45 with 34748 points required. Everyone tries to boast about having a higher level.
RaidCall vs Skype
After reading all the latter, one may ask himself why does he need RaidCall if he already has Skype installed on his PC, a much more extended program in the world of Internet.
To start off, it's always a great idea to be able to use a program specialized in online video games and not a general VoIP application, especially if RaidCall's voice quality is almost unbeatable.
And secondly because it has a very low latency, which is essential in the gaming world in which one millisecond can mark the difference between winning or losing a game. To all the latter we have to add its low resource consumption and the low bandwidth required to make it run smooth as silk.
Really low resource consumption.
Furthermore, it's also more versatile because it comes along with two modes. We can use the program like a walkie-talkie, just like Zello, in which we have to press a voice button to transmit, or in free conversation mode, in which we'll leave or microphone open, being able to send and receive sound at any moment.
Taking all this into account, it shouldn't surprise anyone that many clans already demand their members to have this program installed, at the expense of other similar applications like Vent, Mumble or TeamSpeak.
