    I'm hoping something like irc is in the works. I don't frequent irc because none of the kingdoms I generally play in believe in communication. Still, I like to visit on occasion because there's always a chance to experience some comedy gold. It's one thing to see Bishop here or in kingdom, but quite another to witness his irc mastery.

    Sweden internet=/=have the same issues as the Americas and boonies of asia. I've used it too but its no way viable as a replacement for irc. Slack is a bit closer, but you have to register.

    I live in the middle of no where and have no complaints about lag. It's noticeable at times, but definitely nothing that would stop my recommendation.

    I haven't used the voice chat enough to comment on that.

    its unusable if you have 8-9 people in the same room playing a game like Ark thats not fully optimized. i literally go from 30 fps to 2 fps when people start talking because im geting 8-9 streams of voice sent to me. In contrast the teamspeak server one of my player hosts can have 20+ in 1 room 0 lag, perfect sound quality. I cant imagine how bad discord would get if we had 75-100 people like #tactics has had

    It is not like there is a lack of means to communicate if you really wanted, I catch my brother in WoW chat all the time cheaper than texting.

    If you are going to discuss diplomacy with me find me in front of the northernmost flightmaster in Westfall and beat me in a pet battle or duel first.

    you dont have to use the voice chat option when in a full server..i was speaking moreso for..say..kd chats. when i use it for lawbreakers...we get sometimes 100 ppl in gen chat..it gets chaotic to try and listen to..but i never had lag issues. but thats just me. as for p2p..never made my own channel on there..so no clue if you had to pay or just make one. i just idle in the chats for the games i play with and use the groups to voice chat with my team when i play diff games. was only tossing out options. i know there are lots of other things out there lol.
    Who shot who in the what now?

    Can't the techies come up with a unified and integrated solution. Dream world: game integrated kd AND server chats, with full privacy (could have one moderated server-wide Chan I guess).

    Slack and irc can communicate with each other using bots, possible to get bots into in-game chat and integrate it all somehow perhaps? Leaves kingdoms and players able to communicate across preferred platforms, while still opening up communications for those who prefer to use in-game functions only.

    Slack can communicate with irc irc can't communicate with slack.

    I just like to see Utonet still open. Patrick hasn't made any announcements yet though he promised. Though I don't wanna see the server in the hands of ZAWK I guess it's better than nothing.
