Anyone got any experience with it? Seems like a possible Skype/Mumble/TS3 killer everyone wants. It's available on most platforms (linux soon). Could get a WestLAN room up?

Looks cool. There are a whole bunch of new chat applications starting up at the moment - I like Telegram and Slack.com.

Direct links don't work to prevent people flooding the server you've created. You need to create an Instant Invite link which lasts for 24 hours before it expires forever if you edit it in the advanced settings. The widget you can create for it allows for infinite instant invites from there.

It's a horrible replacement for TeamSpeak at the LAN. It's hosted in its entirety by the developers so we can't host a local solution during the LAN.
Use outside the LAN is fine and maybe inside if the internet ever gets upgraded on the hall.

I can't think of anything that's a worse replacement for Teamspeak at the LAN :)

Discord will never be a TS3 killer. Ever tried using it with 200 ppl? Its really bad.
If online bullying has taught us anything. It's that people would sooner hang themselves than lose a bit of weight.
