Last friday teamspeak released an update which has discontinued client support for 3.1.X servers which affects all users running the new update.
We're in a pretty shitty position, to service the people who play on this server, we'd have to shell out for a yearly teamspeak licence ($100 USD) or stop using teamspeak.

I am not impressed with what teamspeak has done and on principle do not wish to have to buy this licence as the licence fee is too high.
So my alternative that we should embrace is steam chat. I know its got some rough edges but taking advantage of this communication tool means that everyone has it, anyone can access it and we (the staff) can better support and assist players since all user info is connected back to a steam profile.

Discuss in the comments, I strongly suggest checking out steam chat today, its only going to get better with time.

Steam Chat

(also discord is gay)

Edit*

Purchased the damn licence, teamspeak will live on.

What about the comms and whilisted people channels and verfied org channels last time i checked you cant password lock channels or give roles on that app

In my opinion steam chat is missing some key features we have grown dependent on. This would ruin alot of the rhings we use on ggs

Even if we used discord it is still missing features that we need

Honestly your smart you will make it work so i am going to remain neutral

Keep in mind that all accounts are tied to steam accounts so if anyone does misuse the system, we can easily ban them from the chat and server.

Why don't you make a discord server
It may be gay but it is more effective than steam

The Steam chat is a bit edgy and rough and it would be better to stick with TS..

Also David doesn't have a soundboard for steam >:(
