I have played many MMOs with a Roleplaying PvP guild, roleplaying orcs and similar dark races, and we did not use voice comms on purpose. I am sure it would be difficult to concentrate on the kill when you hear a 13 year old (or 65 year old, or any other) try to pronounce our orcish word for "surround" or any other words or phrases often used in battle. So we just decided to never use voice comms, but I can assure you, we were quite competitive in PvP in all the games we played (Shadowclan played UO, ****, WoW, Shadowbane, War, LOTRO, Darkfall).
My point in mentioning that is that I think it would be possible to find a fleet where you could thrive even without voice comms. We often used macro'ed commands/chat text for those kinds of things that need to get communicated quickly and clearly in the heat of battle. Perhaps that is something that could be implemented in your fleet.
