Testing a New Comms Platform: Discord

Historically speaking we’ve tried everything there is at Crack Clan; from speakerphones to Roger Wilco through to Ventrilo, Teamspeak, Mumble and more. ┬áToday we’ve got a new trial for a communications platform that has been making some waves and we’re inviting you to try it out with us, idle for a bit and let us know what you think.

discord-shield-logoOn paper, Discord offers several advantages over competitors, whether it’s multi-platform support, DDoS protection, In-Game overlays, no-hassle use (you can just click to join in your browser) or just competitive voice quality.

In practice it offers a unique combined blend of text and voice features that also carries media embedding (share those YouTube videos and GIFs) so you can pop in and read or hear what we’re chatting about; you don’t even have to create an account if you don’t want to.

Some of us have already been bashing it around with a couple of game and chat sessions – push notifications make DM’ing easy no matter what device we’re using and feedback insofar has been surprisingly optimistic, it’s held up well so far.

We’re inviting all of Crack Clan to come take a stab at it, whether it’s to help us evaluate the software or whether it’s been a while and you just want to pop your head in. Hit any of the relevant links to get connected and play a few rounds!
