  1. Yes. Wow has made the active decision to discourage communication. Last I played horde and alliance couldn't speak to each other. Primarily to avoid griefing. Crowfall has already established you can communicate with your enemies (they may be your friends next campaign). I have no doubt that if ActiBlizzard *wanted* localized VOIP it would happen.

Harassment, cooperation, lying, those work just as well in text or voice.
