Discord is better than TS, it's free and new too.

If you own a server were you can use teamspeak as well for free, then its the better choice from my view. You can built an own structure for a good organisation, dont know if this is also possible at discord?
If not, discord is only for smaller groups / regiments wich dont need an organisation structure. I use discord sometimes, and its uncomplicated in use, but thats all.

Then i would prefer every time teamspeak for a regiment. There you can create channels for everything you need a seperate one, built up a rank system were the rank can get in the channels he should get in, and so on.

But about the costs, wasnt there smaller teamspeak server you got for free in the past?

Just google "free teamspeak server hosting" mostly you just can't upload your own banner which is an add from hosting site.

^ Yeah, that's pretty much it.

Teamspeak is better to use for a Regimental purpose I'd personally think.

With icons, etc.

I've always been a Teampseak user, it's easy to use and it's free!, I'd rather have Teamspeak over Discord any day but that's me.

Simple answer, it's more customizable. You can do more in teamspeak.

Well, another option which the 27th use is. I pay monthly for a small VPS server roughly around £3 which I don't think is too bad. And we can host a 64 slot Teamspeak & a SMF forums out of it aswell. Where I have also paid for a custom domain to go with both to make it more proffessional. There are many videos on youtube showing how you can set a teamspeak server up using a VPS so not too difficult and you have full access to everything on teamspeak :D

Custom domain: www.27thregiment.co.uk

When you have about 50 people to talk to ts is better, discord is better for smaller groups imo.

Ye, also not too sure if its a thing on discord or not but obviously if Events get too loud, COs can just set a talk power on the channel so say anyone NCO or above can speak and Enlisted can't etc. Just you have a wider variety of things you can do in my opinion and thats why I like doing things with Teamspeak.

For those who've used TS for a long time would suggest it's better than discord, however discord has its advantages. I'm not so sure it'll top Teamspeaks aspects and features.
