It would be nice though if Discord use for some events would be encouraged.

I fear the problem with TeamSpeak is that the anything goes nature of every clan and group having a channel always sadly leads to drama especially when the big clans start to break up.

Old habits die hard. Besides, once someone gets used to running things on one platform, we tend to stick to that platform. For some regiments, switching to a whole new communications platform simply isn't feasible, and for a regiment like mine which is cross-game, it's impossible and TS3 is absolutely necessary.

Booting up a 2nd application and having a second push to talk key is hard?

I'd encourage regiments to at least give it a try. It's very user friendly and easy to use.

I'm a die hard TS3 user, discord is better. I stay with TS3 however for organisational purposes, icons and more advanced role management.

On wich point you say discord is better? Sound quality? Easy way to use it? If there are some good points were discord is better without thinking of the organisation of ts, it is good in use with friends just for meet up and play some games. But i dont hear a better sound quality, so what is it?

Tbh besides organization teamspeak doesn't disable my mic randomly, forcing me to refresh the page or restart the program if I go afk for an hour+

To me, discord feels like a more simplistic version of Teamspeak. I prefer TS as I've used it for so long, and I like the way it is to be adapted to however I wish to have it. But I don't really care what people use, as long as they have fun in the game.
