Who uses Discord?

#1

Post by DarkZero » Sat Jan 14, 2017 8:48 pm

Discord is a chat client designed primarily for gaming lobbies and stuff but is also great for general use.

Most of my friends migrated here from Skype, to the point that I barely use Skype anymore, so I'm wondering what everyone else's experiences are. I'm thinking about hosting a group for VGF if it's popular enough.

EDIT: Oh yeah if anyone wants to add me: ZeroJanitor#4248

EDIT2: We got a VGF server now: https://discord.gg/pbSDTAZ

Not me, I don't discard when I play Yu-Gi-Oh, I try to use cards even if I don't need them because discard feels like a wast--

...what? Discord? I think I heard one of you guys mention it before but that was it.

I use it to tell peeps what I want for dinner at my weekly D&D group. The perks of this are that I have adorable Twitch sub emotes that carry over into Discord 8)
I believe in second chances, and that's why I believe in you.

Yeah I use Discord. I'd totally be up for a VGF Discord chat, too. I believe I have you added already DZ. But if anyone else wants to add me, it's Jayrachi#3475

We should definitely have a VGF Discord. I believe I'm Marilink on there, too.

I wrote a song called "Dischord".

Discord is basically the evolution of IRC. Lots of individual game communities use it, along with speedrunners, glitch hunters, etc...basically any group that would have an IRC channel has moved on to Discord, for the most part.

And it's cooler (and less resource-intensive) than Skype.

I believe that is the only real thing Skype has over Discord. It doesn't have video.

If it does get video, it will be optional/toggle-able like voice.
