    Greetings fellow mouth breathers!

     

    We've spent a long time dwelling on the idea of using Discord for Reborn Dominion. Teamspeak was simply superior in terms of management for our use (and arguably still is) and channel layout. It's been something Zen and I have brought up many times and kept putting it off. In general, as the gaming world evolves, Discord has taken more and more share of it. It's simpler and easier to use, and the drawbacks don't outweigh the cons anymore we feel. Many of you already use it too, and lots of pubs in games (especially the new generations who never used Teamspeak) start off with Discord as their only method of communication. The text channels are massively valuable, but I digress.

     

    Today, we're happy to announce that we're officially supporting Discord as a chat platform for the community. You are all welcome to hop on and invite whoever you want to the Discord and play normally.

    Permissions

     

    For now, permissions are server wide. Captains and above have kick/ban to start with. Permissions will be changing in the future as we figure out how to best moderate it. It's not a clear cross from TS, so we might fiddle with them as time goes on. Please, provide feedback.

     

    We have to manually assign roles, so as you logon please type in the General chat channel and Zen/myself/Slayer/Nyx will assign roles.

     

    Sidenote: We can do permissions per channel, which we may do with LTs as they are in Discord. Suggestions are welcome!

     

    What does this mean to the Teamspeak?

     

    The TS will still be up, running and managed. The systems will coexist. As a member, you can continue to use TS if you want, or switch to Discord. If Teamspeak is dead for many weeks at a time, it may be retired, but we're not there yet.

     

    Can randoms join the Discord?

     

    Yes, currently anyone can join. We do not have channels secluded from public view.

     

    If I need help, who do I go to?

     

    Zen or myself. We both receive notifications for all channels. Speak up in the General channel, or PM us on the forums.

     

    I hate Discord, I won't use it.

     

    That's fine, we're not forcing you to. Nothing changes from how things are today. Don't use it. We aim to provide choice.

    Discord will hopefully live up to my expectations, if they follow through with what they have planned it will be our future communication platform.

    I'm mostly using Discord, as I have like 5-6 different server I'm part of and actively using. And I'm managing one of those myself. And I aswell am waiting for many changes in Discord, especially the sub-channel one :D.

    Discord is fairly easy to use and that's why I'm not using TS or any other Voice programs. *I don't include Skype under that, because I have to use that for my work*

    Not sure if introducing a new voice comm when we have a perfectly good ts is a good idea at the moment. I feel like it's going to split up the community and not give everyone optimized opportunities to hang out as a clan, meet new people and introduce new members etc. I understand that if DIscord is going to be the way of RD in the future that it's great to get involved with it, but having two different comm options seems not only redundant but hindering to the social growth of RD.

    I personally have no problems with Discord, but I don't think I'll be using it unless its a majority decision to leave ts for good.

     

    Just my two cents.

    For a well established Division such as Dota, we didn't expect them to take the plunge. We have to think about other, newer DIvisions too though, and unfortunately pushing teamspeak in ANY game at the moment is proving to be harder and harder. Unless Teamspeak can develop a similar system that's as easy to use and simple and combining as Discord, the plans currently are to eventually switch, but not yet. Part of releasing the Discord is to get community feedback though, and see how people like it.

    Yeah I understand, live with the times.. I use Discord when my friends ask me to. I have no issues with that. I just don't think two options for comm is the best way to go for a progressing clan.

    The more we get together the more we bond, the more we bond the longer we stay, the longer we stay the more memories are made, the more memories are made the longer the legacy lasts.

    If you're saying that Teamspeak is behind the times and not up to par with Discord,  then lets get rid of it and just move to Discord then. I'm all for progression and if that's what people want then lets do it.

    We really wanted to see how people reacted to Discord. There's no way to properly 'trial' it so we figured we'd run both. Give's people time to try it and see what it's like, and then use TS if wanted. If people want to switch, we will. For now though we'll run both and put up a poll in a bit to see which one people want to go with. If no one uses the discord except 4 people, then we won't push it at all, though it's not pushed right now either per se, just simply announced that hey we have one!

    I disabled the notifications for the sperg channel, since that's where 99% of chat's going on. I apologize! If other channels send notifications I'll suppress them there too :P

    Right on, always open for whatever voice programs we decide to use and by having options, makes it easier to bring in new players.

    Awesome! I was wondering how long it was going to be until we decided to try this out. Its main strong points are the ease of use, a visible list of all the servers you are a part of, clear lists of all people ordered by ranks, a pleasant interface, and it just looks better than TS. 

    Hopefully others will come to enjoy using it as much as I do.
