    Hey Trians!

    You may have noticed a new blue widget on the right side of the screen today.
    Tria is moving away from TS3 and will instead be running with Discord from this point forward.

    What is Discord?
    Discord is a new VoIP app that is free to use. There are no costs for servers, accounts, etc. You can also use Discord from mobile apps, desktop apps, or just through the browser.​

    Why are we switching?
    As a whole, Discord is more advanced than TS3 is, the audio quality is better, and its free to use.​

    What features does it have?
    Discord will automatically embed images, gifs, videos, and summarize web pages when linked in the chat.
    This app is only 2 months old and is in alpha currently. Many features are planned for the future.​

    Wait... how can this be free?
    Discord plans on selling premium theme packs for their product in the future. These packs should cover the costs for servers I guess.
    Why does the widget look like shit?
    Because I wrote it out myself this morning in like 1 hour. I had to ask the devs for this feature. They got back to me and implemented it in only 2 days. I'll make it fancy later, for now it just works.
    TL;DR welcome to Skype for gaming.

    I'm only calling it that because Skype is basically the go to VoIP client out there right now. Discord is integrating itself into various games and will have ingame overlays soon.

    You don't need to download anything though. You can just use the browser if you want.

    ...why does this sound like Raidcall? Features seem to be identical except for Discord also being available for mobile.

    EDIT: Ok, it is a bit more advanced than Raidcall. Will take a look later.

    More importantly, shiny new things.

    Raidcall is similar but not the same. Hopefully this app will surpass the features that Raidcall has.

    Discord actually sounds better than Skype to me. If you have a high end mic (Like @ThatWasMyKil) you can actually tell.

    the only actual benefit on using this over any other voice chat programs is that...

    you dont need to download and input stupid server/ip/port.

    you simple click on it, and it works. (i mainly use chrome to run the program)
    so ez

    I was like 'Awww, yet another VoIP client' but after I tried, I've changed my mind.
    VoIP over-the-web concept is very interesting.

    One thing bothers me is that I couldn't find any PTT key settings. (PTT notifications are there, but not actual key settings)

    If any guild leader would like to have their own room within our Discord server please let me know. I can set up permissions so only their guild members can join it.
