Discordis a free VOIP (Voice Over IP) and text chat client, allowing you to talk to other players during games and outside of them. It’s stable and supports an overlay in most games that shows you who is talking, player lists and so forth. It also has a range of options to support streaming, game notifications and the like. There’s a desktop app, mobile apps and a web client.
The server is run by Discord themselves and should not have much downtime. There’s no limit to the number of players! We have a mix of text and voice channels, with popular games getting permanent channels and some generic voice channels.
Our administration and moderator team should be easy to spot - look for the people in funky colours.
Do I have to use Push to Talk?
Please do. It makes it much nicer for everybody else. However, PTT is only available on the desktop client. If you’re using the web or mobile version it will be voice activated.
What happened to Mumble?
We’re moving off Mumble, as the software isn’t being developed any more at a meaningful level. The RPS Mumble server has now closed, so please move to Discord.
There’s no channel for the game I want to play!
You can either use the “General Gaming” channels or ask nicely to the staff.
How do I disconnect from voice chat?
Look for the little phone icon with a cross next to it, to the right of where it gives you your voice connection info.
What’s the ban appeal procedure?
If you have been banned from Discord only and wish to appeal, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
What are roles? How do I use them?
Roles are how Discord groups users together. We’re using them to gather players of particular games in to one place so they can all be reached at once. For example, all our World of Warships players are assigned the role @boats. This means a message sent to @boats will be highlighted for all people with that role. Great for organising games and passing on important messages!
To be added to a role (aka ranks), use our friendly neighbourhood bear, Horace. Simply type !rank [role] and all done. To see the list of available roles, type !ranks. If you want to leave a role, simply type !rank [role] again.
