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)
Purchased the damn licence, teamspeak will live on.
