So, no more Mumble?
We have decided to start trialing Discord as a replacement for our Mumble server for the rest of the year. So far the reactions have been quite positive as Discord provides a better chat experience over Mumble and seems to be a lot easier to set up. We were finding Mumble too
limiting in what we could do with it in terms of linking content, direct messaging other users and group control.
So what is Discord?
Taken from the Discord website
Discord is a free voice and text chat app designed specifically for gaming.
Discord was born out of our own frustrations with the voice and chat tools we all use while playing games. It’s a bit strange that in 2015 most of us are using chat apps that haven’t been updated in years to play games that are updated every week. We deserve better.
Discord brings gaming communication out of the stone age. It’s free, easy to use, and with you even while you are AFK.
How can I join the AUSMP channel?
We will be leaving the AUSMP mumble channel up till at least the end of the year until we make a decision – even then we may make the decision to keep it up for a while longer.
