The new application gamers use now (instead of xfire) is called DISCORD and it's a pretty great application. You can use it in a browser if you don't want to download and install a program, but it's very useful.

Luke, you can create a free Official GEWar Discord Server, and discord has the funtionality to allow you to create multiple voice and text chat rooms, you can also create moderators with heightened permissions and alliances could have chat rooms created for them, etc etc.

It has a lot of functionality and would really help foster a community feeling again.

Example:

Join the official GEWar discord server! Link ---> https://discord.gg/HX998S


Please note that the above link is a fake link but the real link would be something like that.
I made an actual "server" to test this. The name is gewar_test and you can join by clicking this URL: https://discord.gg/zQp8jB.
EDIT: GEWar's official chat server is this one: https://discord.gg/Fz6usdf
Discord can be used directly in browser, and there are apps for android, PC, mac,...

Everyone is invited to hop on and try it out. By now we are more than 20 people.

BTW, creating a server is really easy, you just need to enter a name and a location. Location can for example be "central europe", "US east coast", "brazil" etc. Every alliance could create its own server. Then, every server can have several channels. The first one is always #general. But then we could also create channels like
#feature_suggestions
#beginner_support
#smack_talk
#off_topic
etc etc

I've joined the test server, it's very nice!

Once Luke makes the official GEWar server, we can have discord mods and channels for alliances and general chat, etc.....

It shows who's online and allows for different titles, etc. It very well could help foster a community for this game.

12 people! I think Discord is much better than what we tried before, groupMe.

So do most agree that discord is the best way to go with a chatsystem?

It does also have a mobile app. That's pretty cool.

Luke, let us test discord a while to understand all function

for Gewar itself it would be great if we could log into Gewar and then have discord available as an overall chat plus as an alliance chats moderated by alliance.

You may contact them if that is possible.
