    Anyone who still needs convincing, don't be a broom.

    Greetings, Angry Army! I have come today to tell you guys about a new chat system called

    Discord



    Discord is an all-in-one text chat built specifically for gamers. Its services are 100% free and the dev team is actively updating it every two weeks to a month.

    Its first release was back in May. My friends and I happened to come across it and we wound up moving our base of operations over to it instead of Skype. I even wound up pulling my friends who used teamspeak for its voice channels and lower resource usage.

    The screenshot here shows off its layout



    What Discord offers:
    Free server setup. Type a name and it's ready to go. You can immediately set up channels and set roles after that
    Browser client with no registration required to try!
    Low CPU, bandwith and latency
    IP and DDoS protection
    Image/video embedding when you paste links. No more blind link clicking! (last update seems to also let you play YouTube videos)
    Individual volume control
    Modern text chat with separate voice channels
    Permissions. They recently added role separation in lists as well as colors representing those roles.
    More on the way! (we should be seeing an in-game overlay within the next few updates)
     
    "Completely free? Okay, what's the catch?"
    No catch. They plan to sell themes, sound packs and bits that don't relate to the service, itself. They promised their service will be absolutely free.
     
    "Okay, how much did they offer to pay you?"
    Nothing, honestly. I just really like this program. I haven't used Skype or TeamSpeak ever since I got it installed and I want to help grow its popularity. So, I sow my seeds in forums and let it grow from there! I wound up getting 60 people from the Divinity forums (as well as a couple Larian staff) to join my Divinity Discord server. They like it.

    After a month or two of gameplay, the community will actually boil down to nothing but elitists and trolls, having literally killed everyone off. Sadly, I see this getting greenlit.

    Very well may be. Decent first impression for me at least. Let's see if it disappoints me like the last thing I tested (Elder Scrolls Online)!
