WHAT IS DISCORD?
Discord is a voice and text chat for gamers. It's extremely helpful, especially for team based games if you're playing with your friends. It's much less computer intensive than Skype and crashes much less often. It's also easier to connect with friends you met in game or on steam compared to Teamspeak.
