    Awards Threadkiller - Got the last word in. MyGame Challenge 2: Borderlands 2 - They're weak to bullets, minion! Balls of Steel - Community-selected custom user title.

    Default

    Teamspeak - for the super user with cash to have their own server, and wants to be in charge of all the settings, and get the best possible and most customized communication platform with a whole bunch of friends.

    Discord - for the user that wants to freely chat with friends, and just want something simple to and easy to use, quickly connecting and just talking to friends.

    Me, personally, I like Discord more. I just want to connect and talk.

    Why does the local server make such a big difference? I honestly have never noticed latency on Discord so just curious why the local servers are such a big deal?



    Now that is a decent reason. Have you logged the issue with them? I actually found their support team to be quite helpful.


    Two of the points above are actual shortcomings of Discord and honestly the popup when the application starts up is not that annoying. Everything else can be fixed by updating your preferences? I have not tried playing with the audio amplification settings so I am not sure if that can be fixed but it has never bothered me.
    Hence why it bothers me,ts was setup push to speak then connect. Discord requires playing and I'm not bothered with setting up. I mean yesterday they put new T&C's which is a popup I don't think you are able to just ignore or customise.

    Probably cause I'm running an tube amp and audio file headphones so I hear everything. Ts audio quality is just superior in my audio experience.

    Hey if you are just too lazy to set up a new app I get that. That would be an honest reason.

    If the Audio quality is not to you liking and the above holds then that is an honest reason.

    Other sites will send you an email with the updated T&C's that require you to click a link to accept the changes.The popup is not configurable and from an application perspective I can understand the reason for it. The application and its uses are constantly growing so it is to be expected that there will be regular T&C updates and this method of delivery considering it's frequency does not bother me. I prefer this to an email that requires me to click a link in an email and logging into a web site to accept new T&C's. Can you suggest a better way of doing it?

    I get the popup thing.

    Conversely thats one nice thing about discord I think it updates when you launch it. I remember on teamspeak it gives you a popup and then you had to go to the website to download the new update to install.

    Nah,just decision made up due to my audio experience. Not going to customise a new application that I'm not going to use.

    Not sure what you would do different. Just found annoyance using discord. Also x, the standard close button is minimise.
