I've just been linking up with two groups to drive F1 2019 and Project Cars 2 online. This will be (if I decide to do so) on my PS4 console with my race seat and wheel. Guess it's a kind of E Sport thing 🤔 There is also others for games like Assetto Corsa.

The programme they use for online races is called Discord. I believe it can also be used on a PC too.

Now I know we have Vroc and Igor for GPL,but would Discord be a good idea and a possible fit and would it work for an updated GPL online 🤔

What I like about it is, it as live chat room features, games and news rooms, banter rooms and a way to create invites for races as well as seasons and leagues.

What are people's thoughts. All feedback welcome 😁🤭

Seems to be a problem with Discord at the moment.

Seems the servers are down and experiencing big issues 😠😠

IGOR and VROC are not just reskinned IRC clients though. They track GPL servers and launch the game(and mods in case of IGOR) plus a host of other features. Discord in itself is a feature complete IRC clone. For chatroom like needs it's great, longterm discussions are still best left for a forum though.
