oh i didn't know they already went for the merge, thanks for the info bk_123.
skype's definitely popular when it comes to gaming communities, probably because it's a free voip service. i use skype to chat
when i play League of Legends sometimes, for other games and gaming communities to communicate and chat ingame
these communities often have a ventrilo server, which is what i actually prefer. :P but skype is cool too.
