    Isn't there enough discord around here already without making it official?

    So the Official Forums, Facebook, Reddit, and Twitter aren't enough!? It's not like Discord has any advantage of the other platforms.

    No, we need our own Snapchat first. Badly!






    ...not really.

    I already have enough Discord servers I am subscribed to, do not want anymore. Wish that they would use the official forums more and they be consistent with what they say on Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit.

    Why the dislike for Discord? (genuine question)

    I mean recently Discord has been breaking my games due to their livestreamer feature latching onto them and making them impossible to play due to frame ghosting/tearing/general destruction in ways I cannot fix despite uninstalling, deleting registry keys, folders, and disabling of it all its options, but otherwise it's free, has good voice options, and communities to find players.

    Also, STO does have a discord channel, but wouldn't see any point to making it official considering the general cost-cutting attitude of games in general and other limitations of upholding whatever official corporation rules. Devs of other games are part of such channels just fine and apparently do use them without making them official.

    I wouldn't use it.
  • echattyechatty Member Posts: 5,667 Arc User
    Nor would I. I barely use the ingame chat.
    Now a LTS and loving it.

    Just because you spend money on this game, it does not entitle you to be a jerk if things don't go your way.

    Reddit is not official, in the sense that it is not run/managed by Cryptic.

    While I dont like discord, most of their competition got an official discord and they need to be more flexible to attract more players so I am not negative towards it, but on a personal standpoint I dont care so much for it too as long as I can see announcements on their forums and twitter
  • mrgardenermrgardener Member Posts: 177 Arc User
    Suprised for the dislike for discord, but I accept the opinions, I am sure I am there are those who use discord more than they view website, although I been thinking of being more involved on the forums.

    Whilst am on the proverbial fence about an STO Discord, I prefer Discord over Faceache Messenger any day of the week.

    This is a terrible idea. All it would do is allow real-time entitled whining, with the danger of actually hearing your wheezing voices. No thanks!

    The Devs dont listen to us here, I doubt having another option would make a difference. Besides, it would be another thing they would have to manage and maintain.

    The devs do listen to us here. They just do not always support our propositions.

    Also, just because they do not reply, doesn't mean they didn't read it.​​

    There's always the official IRC channel they abandoned.
    https://www.arcgames.com/en/games/star-trek-online/news/detail/1056900-join-the-official-cryptic-irc-channels!
    Link in that post is non-working. You need to use webchat.gamesurge.net or configure your now useless Pigeon for irc.gamesurge.net. IRC is great for your smartphone due to being text only and very low on bandwidth.

    I'm already on more than enough Discord servers. :) An official STO one, if big enough, would probably end up like the few big ones I'm in: Muted and then forgotten.
