As many of you have noticed already we recently added a new voice comunication program to the SFR tools we use as community. I am talking about Discord! a very good program who is indeed better than Teamspeak offering a whole new set of useful tools we have already implemented, like the API Verification, in top of that Discord works also on any Android Mobile or iPhone.
This new system offer a solution to a problem who have been bothering us since Arenanet started the "linking system" who take different servers and team them up on same map, this created a lot of trouble with the old verification system, also forced us to wipe permission every re-link, and this leaded to a lot of work for our admins and in general we do not consider that a working method. This also refer to the forum verification since both Teamspeak and Forum verification are bound together. Discord offered us a very clever solution to this problem with and automatic API Verification who grant access to WvW channels and check constantly each active account and also remove the rights in case the account result not resident on SFR or on the linked server/servers.
We are working to implement this method for the Forum too. We will keep you updated about.
At the moment we suggest everyone to download Discord and procced with the API Verification, and start get in touch with it, Teamspeak will be soon left as Public Server and in case of need as Backup.
