Hello,

Below is a poll about our TeamSpeak and Discord servers. If you have other suggestions not listed in the poll please post in this thread. There are upside and downsides to both. TeamSpeak is familiar and keeps people in voice. Discord is the future, not as robust tag system but better at all other mediums, quality, stability and low use of resources. TeamSpeak costs money, Discord is free. The poll will be open for 10 days. Thanks for your input in advance.

Major

Should we keep TeamSpeak or move everything to Discord?

I feel as though discord gets wat too cluttered and goes down too much for a competitive clan

I feel like the Teamspeak is doing its job very well. We could use the discord to replace the features present in the website (calendars, an events tab ...) and also use it as a backup.
I feel like moving everything to discord would screw things up

Having set up both and managed both for a few different clans as I.T, Each has its lets say Ugly's! The issue with discord is very poor voice codex, therefor very poor voice quality, where TS has excellent voice quality. TS now has a ugly GUI, that is harder to set up, but allows for much more functions, permissions, etc etc, but is hard to set up. Discord is very very limited, compared the the TS gui system. Discord is easy to manage, takes up very little ram compares to ts3, Dc interface is simple to use, but is limited with the availability of features compared to ts3. So, when making the choice, I would weigh the marginal features of DC to the superlative features of TS3. Both will work for voice communication as this seems to be the goal of this poll, however, one (ts) is much superior to the other in voice quality.

*Copy paste from the original discussion thread.*

Discord is used by practically every other game community in the world. TS, Ventrillo and Mumble are outdated. I already communicate with hundreds on Discord as it is and would love if we made the switch. Easy to use, easy to learn, and far more customizable. Also not having to use an external 3rd party website to upload a screenshot then link it to TS chat would be nice. Just drag and drop with Discord. Inviting players to the server is more convenient for the host due to timed link life on invitations. Video and image previews protect the user from spam and idiots. Personalization is far more elaborate in Discord, allowing users to better identify with their account rather than just having a cute nickname. Most people were discouraged from using Discord because of overlay issues that have been solved, even though no one that uses Discord uses the overlay anyway. Discord allows fror private messages to be remembered and recalled, unlike TS that wipes conversations on shutdown. Unlike TeamSpeak, Discord server moderators can have as many servers as desired for free. The Discord mobile app is free and assures members can always be reached, no matter where they are, whereas most TeamSpeak apps cost money. The sound is comparable, though I find that the auto-silencing logic on the open mic feature is much better in Discord than any other VOIP service including Skype. Everyone in my playgroup uses open mics, no push to talk - but you wouldn't usually know it by listening. Very few background noises unless someone is not using a headset or has a terrible microphone. Discord is also less demanding on your bandwidth and your RAM. There were some initial moans and groans from my friends when I asked them to try Discord, but now -- silence. Everyone seems to prefer it. Plebs were sporting Skype. What is this, 2004? Although there are specific specialist features of TS that many enjoy like sub-channels (of which we have way too many anyway) the devs have said they're planning on adding sub-channels to Discord shortly. Discord has seen massive revamps in the form of the Discord Partner Program. Chat servers can remain stable until 100 users or more are chatting in the same room. It is no longer unreliable for more than 20 chatters.

Any questions or need clarification? Lemme know!

I do agree, Discord is the future, Ts is outdated, hard to setup, and costs money. The simplicity of discord is beautiful. Drag and dropping will make it much easier. Reading your post, re-insures that they have worked on the voice quality, and stability issues, they used to have. I have to honestly admit, I have not used it in a few month's. Thanks for the clarifications.
