This is the world's best gaming community. So friendly and helpful! And I love the game. Still, it's impossible to play without joining an FC, and FCs all require Discord, sadly.
I get that Discord is a big QoL improvement for many players, but it sucks when a community of great people think only those who fit in one solution belong.
I find Discord confusing, and too much information. I can only focus on a few things at a time, and having to worry about third-party apps and add-ons ruins gameplay for me. So it looks like maybe my days as an MMORPG gamer are coming to a close, since it's all Discord or RIP these days.
It would be nice if gamers - at some point - would start considering people with differing abilities.
Still, I hope to come back some day if Discord fades from prominence. Hope to find all you lovely people still playing this great game. Cheers!
