Why Does the Server Use Teamspeak?


Recommended Posts

You increasingly gain more and more lag the more people join and talk at once, its a free program. There's a trade off involved due to that, Hence why Carnifex mentioned TS is better for larger communities.

Superior? Superior how?

It has an extensive permission system suited to large communities. Also offers more back-end customisation. Discord is limited in it's potential for large communities

Yeah it's only due to the size of the community. If it was smaller Discord would probably be used. But whoever has to give perms/remove perms to every single person who joins discord and monitor that compared to teamspeak would have quite the cancerous job.

For normal users all you have to do is join a channel and that seems like it however teamspeak has so much better potentials, possibilities and we also have access to the backend, channels for text also don't have to look like "public-chat-room-1" instead a nice Public Chat Room 1 looks a lot better. Also, the backend of teamspeak is what makes teamspeak amazing, I have access to all files, all logs, all serverside files and discord simple does not allow that especially for if we want to mod teamspeak we can, however, discord you cannot., Discord is great for mates or a simple World of Warcraft guild that doesn't need what we have, that doesn't have over 40+ regiments, its like how Steam has its own program like Discord, why doesn't anyone use that? it's free, you already have it and it's physically in Steam so why not use that? the answer is simple, it's impractical for what we do. 

I use a discord server sometimes to catch up on very old mates I use to play with allot before being in IG, it is great for Streamers to connect to there viewers, same with youtubers however for a community for us that runs gamemodes on servers it is not practical where teamspeak is.

I can see what you mean by discord being fun or simple to use, but as wolf and others have stated teamspeak is better for the entire community in terms of practicality. If you want to use discord really badly I can assure you many regiments already have implemented it for their own use to go alongside using teamspeak, so you won't have much of an issue.

Discord is amazing for a Social Media esque communication software between communities - Whereas TeamSpeak is much better for large-scale gaming guilds for it's permissions.

Discord is another example of Capitalism, Teamspeak is almost as strong as Communism.

 

But Seriously, as stated above, and stated by Whitey in an early CW meeting; 'The back end of Discord is far inferior to that of Teamspeak, TeamSpeak allows for greater freedom for both Staff and users alike'. <3

Teamspeak: (IN COMPARISON TO DISCORD)

  • Uses less bandwidth 
  • Uses less CPU 
  • Keeps everyone in one spot rather than having hundreds of people in different little discords
  • Is Easy to manage
  • Has Supposedly less delay
  • Can be encrypted
  • Uses less RAM (for a background program this is important)
  • Is Simpler in general

These 2 comments sum it all up, for a large community like this one having a Discord server would be too chaotic and harder to manage as well as cause other background issues.
