It has been a couple weeks for folks to try out Discord, so it is time to call the vote.

Do we move to Discord or stick with TeamSpeak for BDO Faction?

Advantages: Allows for flexibility in communication (like TS and Slack combined), cross platform (Web/Phone/Tablet/etc), world boss notifications, group messaging/announcements, used by many BDO players (vs TeamSpeak seems to be "hated"), better sound quality.

Disadvantages: Other KGB members can't see whom is online in BDO, Other KGB can't drop down to chat (as nobody is in TS), requires setup (yet another chat app).

Faction Members ONLY please... vote!

->

Should we use Discord?
single choice
YES! Discord is my choice! (30%, 3 Votes)
NO! Stick with TeamSpeak (30%, 3 Votes)
Doesn't matter, I am flexible. (40%, 4 Votes)

If were to have drop ins from other Teamspeak channels, that would be a vote in favor of staying. Since they don't to any great extent, and there is not move afoot to join bdo from those who do, there is no real incentive to stay. Move to Discord.

Yes - the details were posted in the Faction Meeting Notes: HERE

Only side note is - for using it with PTT, best bet is to download the app (vs. using it in a web browser) and run as admin (like TeamSpeak).

I meant channel specific info, I don't see it in the notes, perhaps I missed it?

There is a link in the document that invites you directly to the channel. Once you are in - you are restricted to "General" unless someone drags you down or an officer grants you roles (just like our KGB TeamSpeak).
