Teamspeak and general off game communication

Postby belstgut » 05 Sep 2016, 13:16

This topic should be about in clan communication.

Currently we are using the forum and ingame chat to communicate.
We do have a teamspeak server but noone seems to use it :(

Since the forum is not really reactive and realtime (u always have to check for new posts and stuff) and the shoutbox is not really good structured (not at all) and noone seems to like teamspeak

I was thinking about dropping teamspeak and and use discord instead.

What is Discord??
Discord is a mix of teamspeak/skype with a chat like irc/slack.

For me it is currently pretty hard to reach members outside of the game. Not everyone checks the forum regularly. Since Xfire is dead unfortunately I think we should settle on a new program which everyone uses.

Steam works, but doesn't have voicechat. So we could use Steam + Teamspeak. Or we could use Discord which is a all in one solution and it is pretty easy to use.

You can join the discord server here: (also works in the browser)

Does this make the forum obsolete?
No. Not at all. While Discord is nice for chatter between clanmembers it is not that well suited for longer and more elaborate discussions. Sure you can use it to discuss matters but if there is something up you should still post it in the forums so it gets archived and people who where not around when you discussed something can express their opinions.


so please check it out and tell me what you think. Any ideas or critique is welcome.
