New FAF Discord server

Hello, we have just launched a Discord server for FAF. We are currently testing it out as a replacement for the current mumble servers.

Here is a list of features it offers:

  • Voice communication, obviously
  • Chat channels with a complete history – you can log off and still not miss a thing
  • Proper permissions – private channels, moderation, coloured names, the whole thing.
  • No installation required – you just click a link and join voice communication instantly.

We will be testing it out over the period of a few weeks, and gathering feedback on its performance and use. Please give it a try.

If you’re interested in participating or just want to chat with your friends, head over here and try it out now!

It also has a client that you can use if you want:

Empire ladder week has ended!

Its the end of the week and so the end of this endeavor. Over the course of this week we have seen a great increase in activity from high and low rated players alike, even a few games from players who were taking a break from FAF!

The man with the most points, the most games played, the DOMINATOR of the ladder, who will be GRANTED the ladder warrior avatar, is none other than BeastmodeGuNs!

With a grand total of 180 points, he came out on top after a grueling battle for first place, ahead by just 2 draws, with the winner being decided less than 10 minutes before the week ended!
