Discord is a Voice over IP (VoIP) service similar to services such Skype, TeamSpeak, Ventrilo, Curse, RaidCall, etc., a voice chat and communication program made for gamers. I've noticed many of you are already using Discord within their guild or with friends, but I thought it may also be a nice idea to create have a global server where we can all join up and chat.
Registering a Discord account is very easy, and only takes a minute. Discord will run in your browser, on your desktop, and there's even a mobile app!
Recently the issue came up that we're unable to use the PM function on forums, Discord may help deal with that as well, as suggested by Jasel. Discord contains a friend-list, allows private chats and is still in development of cool new and fun features!
In order to identify who is who, we'll either stick to In Game Names (IGNs) and/or forum usernames. As long as your identity is not verified (e.g. matched with a player or forum user) you'll remain in a "unverified" group where your options are limited, once verified you'll have access to more options!
Once registered on Discord you'll have an ID (usually found at the bottom left of your screen, or when clicking on your name) with the following format:
If you want to be verified, simply post up your ID in a comment below, or meet me in game on the DNM channel. After being verified you will receive a nickname matching your character or forum username so that you're recognizable to others. Optionally, NA players may also use this topic to verify.
While the Discord server is still open for suggestions on what we can do with it, there are several text channels for:
- #general discussion
- #party recruitment
- #colosseum (PvP)
With that being said, I hope to see you all on Discord! You can use the following link to enter the server: https://discord.gg/0130Fbx8aQpdsmETh
