I'd prefer you to stick to our TeamSpeak server if possible. You're obviously entitled to communicate with people elsewhere, but it's recommended to use our TeamSpeak for Noobstown chat.

Can I ask what about TeamSpeak you consider worse than Discord? What's the benefit of Discord? If the reasoning sounds good I can look into it for the server, but it's something I've never used so wondered why it was more popular so suddenly.

I personally prefer TeamSpeak for this server.

It's not self-hosted, it currently is free, but if you see who owns them they're just getting users now so they can monetise it soon.

Personally I am not waiting for a game server chat with themes and sound packs, texture packs, and sticker packs, and having confusing names that don't match in-game usernames and kids just jumping in and being abusive etc.

While teamspeak is far from perfect, for noobstown i'd vote to stick to it for now.

Team speak does cost money for Mobil devices, For some reason TS crashes all the time on my computer. But since Ts seems to be the medium that most people use here, Can I at least link my discord Game server on my Noobstown profile? and if people choose to use it, they can just go to my profile and use the link. That way its at the players choice to use it or not.

I paid for the TS app on my phone, and can't use it to connect to the server when I'm away and someone needs something. :\ Much sadness.

I'd prefer a discord server over a teamspeak, because in my opinion it is much easier to navigate. Teamspeak has a lot to it, whereas discord is really simple and straightforward. And setting up a discord server is extremely easy, especially the permissions and roles, so the transition would not be difficult if you were to switch to Discord.

Yeah discord is free, but team speak isn't for mobile devices, whic is where I would get it. It costing money is why I havent gotten it.

Ah ok, I must have gotten mine during an event or something because I never paid for teamspeak.

I realise this topic is quite old, but we have now introduced a Noobstown.com Discord server, you can see the announcement for this at: https://www.noobscraft.com/site/introducing-discord/msg90834/#msg90834
