Icrontic voice chat switching to Discord
Hi friends and friendos.
Mumble was very good for us for a long time. It has been a great community-building tool, allowing Icrontians all over the world a place to chat for hours, share tons of great memories, play games together, and make new friends. However, Mumble has not aged well; combine a slightly archaic client with a bit of a high bar to entry for non-tech people, weird bugs,plus a lot of lag spike/packet loss/server issues, and we find that it was time to explore more modern options.
To that end, several of us have settled on Discord, a very modern app that combines excellent features we're all familiar with from Mumble (excellent, high quality voice chat, multiple channels, text chat, user profiles) along with some new things that make it even more fun to use, like an excellent mobile app, a desktop client, and a web version along with the ability to react, embed images, and mention people to tag them.

I'll be adding channel/server admins and fixing permissions over the next few days so if you find things are weird, bare with me as we make the switch. Our Mumble server won't be going anywhere anytime soon but we're highly encouraging people to move over to Discord, so don't be surprised if you find the Mumble server empty sooner than later. Thanks!
