News

Back in January we talked about a lot of things that were changing. Much of that has already been worked into the mix. But there is still a lot of work to do. I'm here today to talk about the most significant change we are currently undertaking. We, as a community are moving away from TeamSpeak. There are a number of reasons for this change. 

Firstly, TeamSpeak costs us money and time. The cost and effort to maintain and support TeamSpeak has become too great for the community to support. Automation and integrations that we have put in don’t work well despite our best efforts. The outages that have plagued us in the last year have become too great for us to continue investing in its maintenance.

Another reason is our community growth and introduction of new games; TeamSpeak has become less favored by those new gamers. The Overwatch community as well as other games have been deeply invested in Discord. There have also been some issues with some gamers and the TS client causing problems. Resource issues, connection issues and generally not working as expected 100% of the time. 

Finally, as a communication platform TeamSpeak has its limitation. Our groups have invested some efforts into mobile communications through WhatsApp but that has split us up a little and we wanted something to bring us back together again. TeamSpeak wasn’t working well as a mobile communication app either. We needed something else.

In September the leadership of the community met to discuss what was happening and what our next steps would be. We discussed our options and Discord was suggested as a solid option. Gaddenar and Exile set to work migrating our TS to Discord. Their efforts and work should be applauded and thanked. I personally thank them greatly as it has given us much more than WhatsApp or TS could ever provide.The Overwatch gamers adopted this very early on. It helped us mature the service a lot and add a lot more to it than we have ever been able to support on WhatsApp and TS. The rest of the community has been slowly moving to it. Which is the reason why our TS has grown so quiet.

As of early December some major players started finding their way to the Discord and it was quickly decided that it should be our sole communication tool. WhatsApp and TS are going quiet and Discord is hopping busy. For those of you that have still not made your way there, we would like to invite you to the Phoenix Dominion’s Discord server.

We hope to see you there: https://discordapp.com/invite/7Ffx7wZ

We highly recommend the installation of the Mobile App and Desktop app to help you integrate and stay connected. Don't worry you can turn off the notifications on the mobile app.

Your polls were taken. Your voices have been heard.  Now it's time to take action. Malicious1 will be holding the first Overwatch boot camp on Sunday 2/19/17 at 8:00pm est. We will continue boot camps ever Sunday weekly from then on. We have had a lot of success and fun in the past with bootcamp in MWO and I expect the same here. For those of you that play MWO, this is no surprise and you know what goes on during bootcamp. For those who are new to this, I will share the info.

Bootcamp focuses on building skills and team cohesiveness.  Usually there is a goal to reach or topic to cover during the evening. This topic  tends to change from week to week. It almost always takes place in a private lobby setting so that we can all learn and grow with friends and be in a non-aggressive environment. We also love having feedback. Positive and negative.  This helps us to facilitate a better experience for everyone. Because of this, at the end of bootcamp, Malicious will post an AAR. (After Action Report)  In this post he will give his opinion on what happened during the practice. Also this where everyone gives there two cents. Although not required, we like everyone to participate in the AAR. Tell us what you liked. Tell what you didn't like. Tell us what you did and what you think. Tell us if you saw something someone else did that you want to make note off or give praise. It makes us all better. 

I can't wait to see you all there. It's going to be a lot of fun.

Tyrask out.

BUUUURRRRRRPPP!
