Sooooo... I’m old and anti-social and I don’t do these new fangled sochal meedja type app’s but cos of the charidee stream and my quest to get it on with harrier_77, I installed Discord last night and did some toons with it on last night and much as I poo pooed the idea previously I admit I was wrong, it does make things more fun in toons.  I was curious how many use it but for anyone not sure I would heartily recommend it.  Mind you it was a faff getting it working due to my general ineptitude and drukenness but worth the effort, thanks to Widd and Harrier for getting it working and all involved in the toons.

Discord is a laugh for count-ins mate...as last night proved I feel.

I think the major is confusing 

  1. discord, as a media that allows videogame people to write tons of nonsense and keep in touch with their buddies in a chat form
  2. discord, as that same media that also happens to have audio rooms, which you could use to the same as above, but in a conference call sort of way, or to use to platoon all the while talking, which makes the game a very different experience suddenly. 

 

For the second discord, which is what the major seems to be referring to, i need to mention that from day one I would call my mate on the phone , on skype, on FaceTime, and we would do audio platoon. I would do it every day (in old days when I platooned a lot)... and I didn’t need discord for that. 

 

And yes it’s tons of fun, and a good platoon would wreck the red team, but a good audio platoon would wreck the red team much more efficiently. 


Read my guides there

I want just that, and replay files.

Yeah, it’s the audio bit for count-ins and toons that was a revelation it made it tons more fun even when we got rekt...

The typing chat bit, still not so sure about that.

Skype or phone is all well and good for 2 people, but we had 6 people on count ins, that's 3 toons.....discord allows for multi chat within one room. You can't do that via the former 2 mentioned platforms.

As for the typing aspect....we've got garage chat for that.

I would live to use discord more for blitz but I just don't  have anyone to play with. When I used to be in the developing popular clans like legion and 60 I used to always take part on discord voicechat but ever since I made my own clan blitz started to become more stale.

look me up in game.....you're more than welcome to drop onto our discord when we do count ins.

Skype and FaceTime allows for multi-calls, I think google hangouts does it as well... anyways I wasn’t arguing for one or another, 

i was just mentioning to the major that despite his sudden discovery, audio platoons existed before discord became widespread.

Discord is mandatory if you want to be competitive in larger teams. For platoons it might be a bit overkill.
