    I definitely prefer Discord over TS because I just get TS 1-2 weeks ago and I've been having a really difficult time getting use to it. It's just really complicated and seems maybe 'outdated', if you will. I think Discord is way easier to figure out and get out around. It's very modern and simple.

    I do agree with Nashi about the recording feature, but it isn't a super game changer for me.

    In general, there are a lot of pros and cons to each service as @nedthefed mentioned. However, especially for PZ's playerbase I think that Discord is definitely the way to go. It's simple, sleek and modern, while keeping some advanced features for anyone who is into it, or hiding them away if you're not.

    TeamSpeak has a lot of customization (like with permissions) but it also isn't very nice to look at or easy to use for a non-tech savvy person. There's barely any advantages to TeamSpeak nowadays in comparison to Discord, and PZ is already moving towards Discord, as are almost every other major server currently.

    Hope I helped <3

    I think Discord rather than Teamspeak for a few reasons. The biggest one being Discord is easier to download. Discord also has the option to involve other through polls and server announcements.

    I remember I had to download both TS and Discord. I couldn’t get TS to work on my computer, so I had to buy it on my phone. It still was very annoying to use. I prefer Discord because it is very user-friendly and accessible to all players, not just to people with a mic.

    I'm first gonna list the Pros and Cons of each.

    TeamSpeak Pros:
    -Better Quality
    -People have paid for it for there phone
    -Easier to just text to people in the same channel
    -Staff really like it
    -Good for meetings (Staff/Insights)

    TeamSpeak Cons:
    -Inactive
    - Harder to moderate
    -Not as many people have it
    - not everyone likes it

    Discord Pros:

    - Easy to use
    - Easier to moderate
    - Has it's only moderating group
    - A lot of players have it
    - We had over 1000 people
    - Used for staff to keep in touch (Insights/Staff/Builders)

    Discord Cons:

    - Some of the Staff do not like discord
    - People don't like having meetings on discord
    - Easier to break

    These are just what I could think up, there are more that others may have. I feel it's a good idea to keep Teamspeak and discord for now as teamspeak is still useful for some of us.

    Discord all the way 100%! team speak is too hard to navigate for me.

    The bot literally sent everyone a message saying the creators of it weren't paid properly, am I missing something on these "unknown reasons"?

    I think discord would be better because one, there is a better interface. Two, it is easier to use, meaning more people will have the chance to talk to others and have a positive impact on the players that are already in or to join in the future.

    I like discord better because it's easier and I can use it on my phone without buying the app. My compurter hates my mic.

    TeamSpeak is easy for staff/insights related stuff and Discord is easier for the community as DC holds more people but you can drag people around easier and edit channels with TS.

    Personally I can’t run DC on my computer (takes way too much CPU— looking into why), but it is a lot easier for the community to run on.

    I've never used TeamSpeak, but I really love Discord. It's so easy to use and it works very well. I guess that doesn't really help this discussion though.

    (っ◔◡◔)っ ♥ Discord is easier, I can actually get in and use it, and Teamspeak is CONFUSING and hard to log in. Sooooo, I say we migrate to discord! <3

    ( Edit! )
    I downloaded teamspeak and I was COMPLETELY confused! It took me literally 10 minutes to figure out how to just join the server! I'm deleting it now, because its so confusing its pointless, plus, I can't use it on my computer and its like 3 dollars to buy it on my phone!
