Discord Vs TS3 - Vote - JaXm - 02-27-2017

So I have been toying with the concept of moving our official platform over to Discord... There are alot of pros and cons for both.

What I would like to hear is from you all what you would want


***Note*** This is mainly for people have expierence using both TS3 and Discord so as to make an informed decision. If you do not know what Discord is and simply vote for TS3 due to not wanting to change, please pay attention to the polling options.


Keep in mind the results of this poll will not determine one way or another on which platform to continue with.

Discord is really ad-hoc compared to TS. This makes it harder to have a single point of contact. I don't mind people wanting to use it, but TS seems better for having an easy group meeting place.

The disadvantage of Discord that really bugs me is the ability to just instant join channels. Such as in TS you can regulate the ability to join channels or even see if people are in those channels. Discord is one link then done.

I agree with the above statements. I could understand it if we were incorporating a large number of people who only use discord, and this was an attempt to bolster interactions between the community, but I feel even less people would get on a discord server than the ts we already have. Most of the people we coordinate events with already have ts, so its much easier for us when we host stuff to do so on ts.

Discord has the benefits of the fact it keeps messages long after you log off and come back on and you can recap any thing you may of had to miss.

The downside imo is that I like the diversity of the TS channels compared to Discord, as well as I feel the audio/mic usage on TS is better then discord.

But since I already use both, I don't really care what we do.


RE: Discord Vs TS3 - Vote - Veni_Vidi_Vici - 02-27-2017

To be clear; I am all in favor of people using Discord if they want to! I just want the official stuff to be TS.


RE: Discord Vs TS3 - Vote - Rubbing - 02-27-2017

Agreed with Zealots, though I have to add that I would probably be more active on Discord since it launches on startup and automatically connects to groups. I know TS can be configured to do that too, but with Discord you can choose when you want to join a voice channel so it's less of a hassle to keep it running all of the time. Discord also shows what games other people are playing, even non-Steam games.


RE: Discord Vs TS3 - Vote - Zealots - 02-28-2017

A thing I forgot to add was what Rubbing said. It's a nice way to communicate with people while not needing to be in voice chat. Also much easier to use while on Mobile. So you can easily pitch in your own thoughts into a conversation happening.


RE: Discord Vs TS3 - Vote - Old Bastard - 03-03-2017

I would prefer discord. I just find it much more user friendly and it would make it easier for people wanting to communicate to join. It's slick and the app is really nice so you can still communicate if you're not at your desktop. I know everyone was waiting for my feedback

I'm always on Discord myself, it has nice features to share and bots to play music or voices too.
