The Unofficial Discord Channel

Post by Nanaya » Wed Nov 30, 2016 6:32 pm

There is one! I made it. You don't need the desktop app or the phone app and can directly go via browser to voice chat and text chat. If any of the admins or mods need powers I'll set it up so I don't have to do it.

From a glance it appears to be something similar to Skype, but it doesn't require a software download, so I guess that makes it a more elaborate Shout Box.

Though for the voice chat piece to work right(sometimes) it's helpful to have the download

To elaborate and to add. It's a more all in one solution that was primary designed for gamers initially as an alternative to IRC, Skype, Teamspeak and Ventrillo. It's text component is similar to those programs chat functions and IRC. As software, it's grown to replace those programs. Fairly easy to use, works with nearly any browser on OSX and Windows. Works with ios/android phones and has a desktop application as well. Which is recommended for more frequent use. It's pretty nifty, easy to use, lightweight and not limited to core gamer audience anymore.

Based on my limited use, "Gamer Skype" is a pretty good summary for it. They share a lot of the same functions, and I don't think either one is any easier to use than the other. Imho the only thing Discord has going for it is an easier method of moving into group voice chat, which is more useful from a gaming standpoint.

What's nice is having a vehicle for our gamers to interact socially while they game. I know a lot of us play, but aside from the on-site Guild there's not much to link you guys together - nature of the beast, I guess. I definitely like Discord as a gaming chat client.

Yes, though Discord allows you to have rankings and such within the servers you can set up and whatnot. As I use it when I play League of legends and whatnot.....

Taking pot shots at Rick should be cut in half and Mocc should be added.
