Ever thought about Discord?

Post by DragonStar Gaming » April 4th, 2017, 11:13 am

This is something I'd like to bring up. I rarely launch TeamSpeak anymore, because I use Discord. In fact, I only use TS for the CCGaming server.

Discord is really nice. It's free to create a server, the text channels can be separate from voice channels, you can have 1 on 1 voice calls, you can add bots to the server to help with moderation (and some fun stuff like using a command to activate an airhorn :D) The mobile app is also free, unlike TeamSpeak's mobile app. More features here.

If you guys consider doing this, maybe you could setup a server for experimental purposes and see if anyone would prefer using that instead of TeamSpeak, and then make the full switch later? I know quite a bit about running a server on there as well, so if you need help, I'd be glad to contribute.

Let me know what you think. :)

We do actually have a Discord. I have no idea who uses it regularly, though.

People talk about switching to Discord from time to time, and it never seems as though the community is interested, so...Can't hurt for you to try, though.

Just in case others don't know, yes we have a discord server (if you even what to actually call it a server). You can join at discord.ccgaming.com. We have a basic bot that is a work in progress but it can do some basic things.

Er, invalid link? That seems more like a TS server link. Either way it's not be accepted by Discord as valid.

I much, much prefer Discord over TS, and have been moderating a semi-large server for the past few months.

I know a few of our users tend to be on it more as well, which is mainly why the TF2 channel is so dead.

Yes, please make this switch if it has the support/is possible. TS is kind of dated, anyway. Besides, Discord looks a lot nicer c:

We'll more than likely won't be swapping over until the day we get rid of the server box and get grows up more. Plus ts does stuff that discord doesn't as well. Like advanced server permissions. Its just more flexible. They both used the same audio codec so you can't really complain about sound quality. Also did you know you can find different skins for ts as well?
