The vote has been overwhelming! Discord is by far the requested voice communication platform of choice. So, having heard that feedback, we are going to take a trial run at the switch. I call this a trial run because if we find some really bad reason why Discord doesn't work for us, there is nothing that stops us from switching back.

Starting now, you can connect to our Discord server: https://discord.gg/MwQxauC.

The Team Speak server will remain fully functional until Saturday, Jaunary 5th. On that date only the RL General Chat room will remain available for anyone lagging to make the switch. January 5th is the date when we expect anyone using voice communications to be using Discord. At some point after the 5th the voice capabilities of the RL General Chat room will be disabled as well.

Here's some of why I personally like Discord:

  1. Just like TS was easier to configure than other voice chat applications, Discord is even simpler with less configuration mess.
  2. The mobile app is free (vs. Team Speak on iOS has a cost).
  3. The integrated text chat channels make it really nice for people not in voice channels at the moment. You can post in a text channel that you're starting a group and people offline can see it!

There's probably more, but that's a good starting point.

"Discord Server" in the main post is the link. :) I'll make it more obvious.

so I fucked up and locked most of the TS channels today, instead of Sunday. Gen Chat, Spacebar, Non-Swtor, and Command/Overlord are still open, if you wanna still use TS.
