My opinion really hasn't changed much. Vent still is nice for the ease of use, it does one thing and does it well. Discord is nice cause of the few added things like a (well integrated) chat room and the added ability to see if anyone's actually on voice chat before getting on and the sometimes used overlay. Voice quality seems to be about the same between the two, in some cases Discord seemed to be a bit nicer. Only downside I'd say to Discord is you need to make an account for it and there's a lack of voice announcements for people entering and leaving and changing rooms. Vent has these which are super nice and I don't need to make an account, I can just sign in with whatever.

Both work and work well and I won't be heart broken for one over the other. For the sake of actually making a vote though, I'll vote Discord, for the reasons of free and the few nice added features. The downsides are minor at worst.

I like all the additional features provided by Discord. The only downsides to it I find worth mentioning are the lack of Text-to-Speech announcements when joining that Vent has, and that the volume boosting you can do on a person isn't as great (only up to 200% rather than the 600% or whatever that Vent lets you do). My vote is for Discord.

I have to say the extra features in Discord are pretty nice. Vent does what it does well and that's about it. And there's also the fact that Discord is free which is nice. Is there still anyone having technical difficulties with it? That would be my only concern, trying to maybe fix those before we dump Vent entirely?

Okay I don't think we need to hold another survey.  Everyone I heard from on Vent last night was for Discord, folks who have posted here have been for Discord as well.  I'm also for Discord myself - I enjoy it's features, better voice quality, and free price. 

For August let's switch back to Discord.  Again we're paid for Vent through Feb 2017 so it'll still be here but until decided otherwise we're making the switch.

Hey, just as an FYI I did get an e-mail from the Discord folks about disappearing for a while.  If you have any wishlist items you'd like to send them let me know.  I mentioned wanting to be able to set user volume levels higher or lower than they allow now, anything else?

For me it was adjusting volume boost higher than 200%... Steph mentioned wanting to be able to mute sounds from Discord easily from the main window like the check box in Vent without affecting her ability to talk to us through her mic. I can't remember anyone else's points of note right now.

Well I sent some feedback to the Discord guys. 

  • No response on the higher voice boost past 200%.
  • They mentioned that "deafen" only supports muting both headset and mic right now. I mentioned that Ventrilo supports this now and asked it to be wishlisted and they said yup.

They also reminded me that they have a Wishlist/suggested system for upvoting things for development.   You guys  should totally make use of this tool to try and get your suggestions put into the feature set.

I did submit a request for the "mute headset" feature (did not think to call it that, but that basically fits what I'm getting at).  Here's hoping!

So, the GK server has vanished from my Discord room list. Thoughts?

Looking into it...

EDIT UPDATE: Ren was somehow uninvited from the server?  I have re admitted him as a member and set his membership role to "Game Knight" again
