I didn't know skype supported multi-conversations. It's more like a replacement for a phone. For games/clans etc programs like ventrilo, teamspeak, roger wilco etc are preferred.

first of all, battlefront will have a built-in chat system.
Secondly, teamspeak and ventrilo are the most popular voicechat programs for games ATM. Both free. You'll just need a server then which some host for free.
ventrilo.com, teamspeak.org. If you're on xfire others can see which teamspeak/ventrilo server you're on

We use skype, but if those are better programs, we will step over. Let's post this on our forums. Thanks for the tip!

TEAMspeak and ventrilo are designed, built etc for clans, teams, whatever, to speak to each other. Skype is an alternative to phoning. Skype is up to 4 for example and if you want to speak to each other while in game, the useless extra features of skype and the tons of extra useful ones in t./v. make the decision obvious
