DISCORD
« on: October 17, 2016, 01:54:06 am »

[WHAT'S DISCORD?]

So, this nice dude from Soldat Forums - themangokid - introduced this application on their forums, and I gave it a try. The design is a real step up, the features are amazing and the sound quality is good... And it's all for free, you don't even have to pay for a server... Are they madly insane?!

DISCORD is a unique application that was specifically designed by gamers for gamers. It is made to withstand the current non-stop updates in the gaming world, whereas the VOIP programs aren't updated as much.


[WHY WOULD WE USE IT?]

First and foremost the idea is creating one place for all the Soldaters to be. There is SCTFL, Soldat Forums, Facebook lurkers and some other co-communities that might run that we aren't really aware of. themangokind already created a #soldat  community server (as shown on preview below) - this link is an invite, just press it to get redirect to the server!

It can be a great tool for everyone to connect and make new people feel more welcomed perhaps in the more competitive scene.

Just to be clear there's no intention for it to replace IRC  that we've been using for so long. Maybe one day it will if there'll be a gather-bot integration for there or something. But that's not the case - this is about community. :)

[WHY IS DISCORD FREE?]

Quote
Never pay for voice chat again
Discord is always completely free to use with no gotchas. This means you can make as many servers as you want with no slot limitations.
Wondering how we’ll make money? In the future there will be optional cosmetics like themes, sticker packs, and sound packs available for purchase. We’ll never charge for Discord’s core functionality.


[FEATURES]

• Allows anyone to create a server for free with a click of a button (Location pickable too)
• Allows creating shareable links to a specific server (Invite only mode possible too)
• Allows integration with Skype / Steam to connect with more players
• Allows to integrate Soldat with the application, so "nsj - playing Soldat" will show
• Web access for players who are using a temporary setup of some kind
• Text chat (IRC like) which allows a greater interactive experience.
• Free phone app to connect with

[LAST WORDS]

It's easy to be skeptical about something new, and I'm expecting already the "this game is dead" comments from the drained ones. But this is a really neat app and opportunity to try to bring in some new spirit. Give it a try! Try the web version and if you like it download the application, integrate with Soldat and invite your friends! This can work. :)
