There is an issue with that 'teamspeak integration' (voice stuff).. I don't think it'll really be used in a good way, like let's say for tactical purpose.. let's be true, there is no real tactical value in common public servers.
If there was a serious match making system, this would possibly make sense. I would rather recommend to add some more voice chat messages to the chat radio.
The gap between irc and the public community has always been super huge. I remember how I got recruited to IRC and it felt really complex to get started.
Hosts of the most populated soldat servers are in charge of putting advertisements scripts on their servers if you ask me. It wouldn't hurt if players get a message like "join www.play.soldat.pl
to join the competive scene". A few things can be done, like recruiting people to irc but this is really time consuming.
There was a web gather on soldat.pl but it was not connected to qnet but had it very own system. It was never used and was removed in the end.
I for myself gave up to think about possible improvements or ideas about soldat. I did a lot of those in the whole time and everything was rejected.
PS: I'm happy that the coder of Storm2D adds suggestions into the game such as the IRCqnet chat which he added last week, which can be accessed while playing and while being in the menu..
Bye soldat 'dev team', get your fucking suggestions together on yourself.
