  • Why Discord?

    Can someone describe to me why it's so much push to move gaming discussions to Discord? Maybe I'm a bit old now, but I found this service confusing, not so clearly structured as normal forums - like this one. What is moving people to move to Discord?

    It's crazy easy to have larger discussions because of voice chat and if you want to break a section off to run a game you can just install a dice bot.

      It's basically IRC but fancy. Everything that drew people to IRC, but with voice chat and streaming integration.

        Like Ian said, it’s basically IRC plus voice chat and streaming. As someone who’s always preferred forums over IRC, I share your feelings of being a little left behind by the movement towards Discord, but that’s the appeal.

          I feel you. I enjoy Discord and I enjoy forums, but I enjoy them for different reasons and I would rather use them in parallel.
