Seems like a freemium version of TS. You can set up a server instantly and there are both desktop and mobile apps to connect to it for free, and you can use the browser too. Might be worth trying out, they plan on making money by offering cosmetic extras a bit like the better F2P games do.

TS is just too good against freemium services when you get a good voice host, especially when so many of us have disposable incomes on these boards. We don't need to get a massive server that hosts 100 people but a 50 slot server should be easy. You can get a 12 month 50 slot service for 60 a year.

If some of the World of Tanks users help out it would be even cheaper.

We don't use 50 slots currently do we?

Also this seems pretty new, have you actually tried it out in comparison to TS or is this just a case of "I like what I use already"?

Its more about stability, experience and trends. For example if you join a new game, want to invite someone onto your voice server, do you really expect that person to go and sign up and install Discord for potentially one gaming session? I wouldn't.

We've all seen how many people are familiar with teamspeak and we've all used alternatives in the past yet TS is still here and it still works whilst reaching the largest amount of gamers.

Over the years I've tried mumble, ventrillo and teamspeak and teamspeak wins.

I strongly suggest we re-look at this.

Discord is disrupting the VOIP gaming market very nicely. Why pay for TS3 anymore? It also enable us to connect from Android devices.
