Hi Iamnobody! Discord is a communications tool. It was developed for online gaming, but it works really well for Diplomacy, I've found. It allows for consolidated comms between players and has a really useful smartphone app that makes playing by phone a lot easier (there's also a browser-based option). You can set up private channels easily and access the maps and moves, all in one place.

If you follow the Discord link in the message, you should be prompted to set up an account and will have access to the server. I'll put you down as a maybe. If you don't think the Discord thing is appealing, let me know and I can take you off.


I'll check out the link when I get home tonight. Thanks for putting me down as a maybe. I love the map.

Is using Discord the only way to play or will the old PlayDip PM messaging still work? What is the purpose of using Discord? Died it not make PbF on our website irrelevant?

We are doing all comms on Discord. Orders can be submitted through the PM system, however, but Discord will be easier for that too, probably. I think Discord is a great tool, especially for playing on your smartphone. Everything is in one place. It allows for more chat-like comms in addition to messages. Maps, moves, press, and comms all in one page and it's easy to switch between conversations easily.

The record of the game will still be here and all that Valhalla goodness.

Yeah, so basically Discord makes PlayDip irrelevant. Very sad. Not everyone plays on smartphones or wants an increased pressure of more comms... I’m disappointed.

I don't think it makes it irrelevant. It's a great community. Some just like to have the other method. I also wouldn't say there's pressure for more comms, but it's available and adds a different element. Sorry you're not interested!

I just downloaded Discord. It reminds me of a old IRC channel.

Sign me up if you are willing to work with a Discord newbie.
