Why do we need an outside chat forum , when there is already the cc chat, all it needs is opening up to all users.
Because outside chat programs like Discord have many more robust features (including voice chat) and are much easier to use while playing a game than WGT's cc chat.
Discord is by far the best app out there for all games. I have had discord, teamspeak and telegram. All I get is excuses why they won't use it. I setup a facebook page and only 1/2 the club is interested enough to use it.
If WGT was smart, they would setup a discord on their old servers with all the space they have now from Early Access. Discord is free.
I don't see this happening, but we can dream.
