New Discord Servers: AAO25 & AAO25 Scrim
« on: Sunday, February 21, 2016, 12:44:36 PM »
Discord is new alternative software for discussing with fellow players during game. Discord is free software and beats easily TS3 for example in CPU Usage. Even though you can run Discord inside your browser, it's more recommended to download actual app what to use. Discord is available for Windows and Mac, but it's also free for ios and Android. You can download the app from here: https://discordapp.com/

When you have installed the application you can join AAO25 -server by clicking this link:
https://discord.gg/0qGhTzjmdVrDllnv

For now there can be found same main channels than ts.aao25.com has, but there are also few new channels as well. Members will have roles based on their clan, basically each clan has similar - but differently named role. These roles are used in defining privileges for different stuff. Basically same clan members will have same role and they have all the access to their channel. With clan role you can also see your own textchannel that no one without privileges ( = correct role ) can see.

For scrim use you can use AAO25 Scrim -server, you can join this server from here: https://discord.gg/0qGxC6ataavLXFRv

You need to join these servers only once, after first join they will be in your use automatically when you start the application. 

Then you can have private conversations with other users. These messages will be saved, so you wont loose them when you disconnect.

Windows users might need to run application as administrator to get mic working during game. 

If you have anything to ask about this, do not hesitate to poke.

This is an alternative to Teamspeak that anyone is welcome to use if they please, but it is not an official server provided by us. Not right now at least.

True, and it's actually quite good alternative for it. All is being set like there is at ts.aao25.com, welcome guys to give it a try :)

Why to use Discord?
Following chart explains it better than thousand words.




Where can I get Discord?
Navigate to https://discordapp.com/ and choose Download from top navigation bar




How can I join server?
After you have installed your Discord application you are able to Create and Join server.




When you choose Join you get screen which asks you to add invite key. Those keys are:

AAO25 -server: Key = https://discord.gg/0qGhTzjmdVrDllnv
AAO25 Scrim -server: Key = https://discord.gg/0qGxC6ataavLXFRv


I have joined, what next?
After you join to AAO25 -server you get screen like this. Well actually your screen looks a bit different than mine, since Im not using default colour theme. So there are colour themes: light ( = default ) and dark. You can change these from bottom left corner of your application window, there by right side of your name you can see three buttons. Mute, Deafen and User Settings. Pay attention for these User Settings, from there you can set all push to talk, key binds, account details etc.




As you can see from picture above, there are quite many #textchannels. When you join there you see only #general and #news. This is because of roles and role privileges.


What are roles?
There can be numerous of different roles and every role can have different privileges. Basically in these AAO25 and AAO25 Scrim servers there are three different kind of roles. Admin, Clan member and Normal User. From this image you see there is Admin role, and then there is a list of clans marked in yellow. They are roles defined to clans and each clan has similar roles when compared to each other.




For what are these roles for?
With roles we can decide which group of people has access and power in which channel. Basically clan has all the access for their own Voice & Text channels.

Like this image shows, there are no global permissions defined...




...but as a member of clan and with clan role you get permissions to your channel




Why there are two servers?
Simply because of the amount of channels and the lack of TS3 kind of hierarchy. Not all of us needs scrim channel so these channels can be elsewhere. In AAO25 Scrim server you can join only to those channels where your role allows you to join. So there are no password requirements - privileges are defined by the role.




AAO25 server is made to be as a lighter and new generation alternative for ts.aao25.com where players could meet each other. Mobile app makes this be like a good mixture of TS3 and Whatsapp.

Windows users might need to run application as Administrator to be able to run it in correct way while playing.

We have been testing this with mobile devices as well and it works wonderfully in mobile use. It's not only an eye candy, it's also very handy. #textchats in mobile use works like whatsapp group chats and the best part is that you can read or even join the same chat from desktop. So all the details you discuss during day about upcoming scrim match is right there when you move on from your mobile to your computer. You can also join voice chats with your mobile easily.

In Discord you use your email as your user account, so no matter what device you are using you are still you. When you login for example for the first time with your mobile device after you have used Discord with your computer, all your servers are ready to be used, you don't have to connect to every server again and again and again.

Our clan is using whatsapp daily, this might replace the need of whatsapp for us completely.

Here's another chart for you. Take a look how these three apps are affecting on fps. With high performance you wont spot the difference but if you're struggling from fps issues in general then you will see it yourself.

Quote
Voice quality so clear you can hear a pin drop
Discord is built with the latest tech using a modern jitter buffer, automatic gain control, noise suppression, echo cancellation, system attenuation on Windows and more.
You'll love it and it works everywhere: desktop apps, browser apps, and soon phones.

Yesterday I noticed this and there's huge difference between TS3 and Discord in quality of sound. In TS my voice got cut every now and then while speaking and Discord recognised me even crunching chilli-nuts and didn't cut my voice at all.

Discord is made by gamers who got sick and tired of antique softwares to keep in touch with their fellow gamers. So they took the good features and made them in better way, brought team communication to 21st century. They are bringing more features in near future: 

In-Game Overlays
See who's talking, adjust voice controls, receive and respond to discord text messages; all without leaving the game.

Game Integrations
Connect your game account to Discord, sync your guild roster, etc.

Discord API
Truly make Discord your own. Create your own plug-ins for Discord using our API.

Bots
Set up bots to auto-post content in channels from Twitter, database sites, etc.

Slash Commands
Easily post game results, dps meters, and more in your text channels with simple commands.

Two Factor Auth
An optional added layer of account security that requires authentication on your phone.

1:1 Voice Calls
Directly call other Discord users without setting up or joining a channel.

Premium Theme Packs
Customize Discord with premium bling like skins, sticker packs, and sound packs.

Awesome program I'd say. Haven't even started up TS3 for a week. Feels so antique when comparing Discord.
