[Discord] WAKFU Text/Voice Server

Hello everyone.

Today we would like to introduce the WAKFU community to Discord.

Discord is an all-in-one text and voice for gamers which is free and feels a lot like a mix of Teamspeak and IRC put together (for those of you already familiar with them), which enables the community of players and friends alike to get together and converse via text or voice using different chat or voice channels.

Discord is free, secure and works on both your desktop or phone or tablet. It is available for Windows, Mac, IOS and Androids.

All the information about Discord can be found on their website: Here.

And as we wish to offer to the community the experience to use it, we have decided to create a server.

This Discord server doesn't serve as an official server but as a fan based server.

Here is a preview of the actual WAKFU Discord server:
 

And now here is how to join it:



Simply click on this invitation link: "Invitation Link"

Step 1:
Once you have clicked the invitation link, follow the process to get your account setup and you can either use the browser version or go ahead and download Discord.

Step 2:
Once you are logged into Discord, you will notice several text channels and voice channels which have been created for each communities, so that languages can have their own home.

Step 3:
Get accustomed with the use of Discord and the various features, which can be found: here.

What is the current goal?

First Ankama intervention
Thank you guys for these first comments. wub

I also need to point out that your CMs may not always respond right away on the server as their presence will depend on their own availability to be on the Discord WAKFU server.

A good way to look at it is that this chat/voice server is a fan based server allowing the community to discuss all Wakfu related topics together in a convenient and easy way outside of our official channels and platforms. smile

Getting immediate response is nice. Getting moderated by posting a a movie title is not nice lol

edit:
The server is on trial phase so guys if you want immediate response from Ankama pls post here what you think about the server wink

Seems pretty cool so far. Convenient.

Though as a note voice activation for the chat channel is automatic. You can change it to push to talk in the options though. Just as a heads up to people.

No image posting killed off one of the main features. Seriously rethink that.

You can easily post the link to an image. So they click it before seeing. Works just fine.

Right click a picture->Copy Image Location->Paste

Your Display name or account name must be matching your forum nickname.
I understand the need for this requirement but I think it's unlikely people will follow it or be enforceable (especially since the Discord server can be reached by word of mouth, which was the case for me and did not know about this post until it was mentioned). I believe most people will go by what others have come to know them as inside the game and it won't necessarily be by their account name or forum name.

With that said, I've enjoyed using Discord and look forward to the other features they've yet to implement. In my opinion, it seems to have a lot of potential that can be of benefit to the community.

REQUEST:

I would like to have an #announcements text channel so posts like these can be linked and provide more cohesion between official communication and fan base communication for the game. It might seem redundant but I'll probably end up using Discord more than the forums (sorry) especially if more community members join Discord.

late feedback, our guild created a server for us to try out, we will update our guild thread and add up Discord invite link for anyone who has any concerns involving our guild and will try our best to monitor it frequently.

pros:
no downloads
signing up is optional
anyone can join

cons:
beside from not having a video chat which really isnt their target market, are there even any biggrin?

i recommend this for
grinding, dungeons, hunting and ultimate boss groups (no hustle in typing + it gives you more focus on group tactics and challenges)
for guild chats OR whenever you feel talking to a friend or someone in the game

have a good day everybody!

I have removed the need to be matching your forum nickname and as far as the images, it is possible to post link that way people on the chat can decide if they wish to see them or not. smile

I never installed Teamspeak cause it looks like shit. Discord has a nice gui, mac users will be shameless to use it. Thx for that. If only that app was integrated into wakfu like Steam, that MAJ+Tab overlay is very useful ohmy

"overlay" integration is coming, it's part of the features of the app.

But a point I dont like much. We can choose any name, there are people pretending to be Hush by example...

Yeah.
By the way, there is any chance Ankama could make a short url to share ingame to this channel?
Something like wakfu.com/discord would be awesome

Hello, The invitation link is not valid anymore, can you post another one ? Thank you ! And do you have a different discord for the french community ? (the link is not valid either)

Why this topic got unpinned? Just edit it (updating the link to a fresh one w/o expiring date) and keep it pinned so new players could find the server easily  @[email protected]
