Discord server instead of TS

5 posts in this topic

Discord is a modern TS replacement that is really sort of a TS+IRC server with what you would expect from a modern service. It is free and quite simple to use. Many gaming communities have moved to use it instead of TS. It can have significant benefits for squads and HC, as one can install a phone app for instance and send messages or even voice connect on demand when away from the main machine. In general it has potential for much more user to user interaction, which is something you very much want in the game.

So it turns out there was a thread about it before, and it was tried (though I think only internally). One objection I head was that discord doesn't have a overlay - it does now. Second possible one would be that there was no automatic assignment etc, but now there is a discord bot that could do these things.

The really nice thing about discord is that currently many squads have their own TS/Vent servers, and if you know where to find people, you will. With discord and it's ability to be in more (text) channels at the same, it would be easier to keep in touch, even if people play other games. (E.g. - suppose there is a reason to come play right now, like a great air battle, or a breakout or something, with discord it would be easier to call people to come, even if they aren't playing anything right now.)

on that note, the original Ts3 overlay plugin has conflicts with the latest vision of  windows 10  and having to run over wolf  or playclaw  just to use an overlay...is overkill.

It's time for a change.

Yes we tried discord internally and it wasnt a good fit for the team. 

While we are not afraid to try new things. Right now the resources we have probably wont be expended on switching from something that works to something that also works.
