A New Discord for Echoes of Empire!

Greetings, Spacefarers!

We are so excited to announce the launch of our new Discord server! It will be going live on Monday, October 17th. We have been working behind the scenes to prepare for this over the last several weeks, and are looking forward to seeing our community continue to grow and thrive. We would like to take this opportunity to go over what this means, and what it doesn’t mean for the community.

First, we would like to be very clear that we will not be exiting the Gala Games server, or reducing our interactions there. You can continue to expect our regular news, updates, AMA’s chatter, and occasional chaos just as you’ve always seen it.

The experience we are creating on our new server is designed to enhance community interaction, and to offer a space where we can take full advantage of the features that Discord offers us. This will include being able to offer the new integrated forum discussion areas, replacing our dedicated forum space. It will provide a smoother experience, and not require users to go elsewhere to have those more detailed discussions.

Additionally, it will allow us to have more fun with vanity roles, Mee6’s channel points and leveling systems, and other features that make it more enjoyable to hang out on the server and chat. We’ve set up self-assigned roles to support your favorite faction, and will be adding more of those over time. It will also allow us to recognize our early adopters and superfans, and will offer opportunities for you to get more involved with our team and community.

Lastly, but certainly not least, having this space will provide a smooth and efficient way for us to take feedback and bug reports, and relay that information to the team when the alpha goes live. While we will have a more formal means of reporting issues, this will serve as a backup, and will allow us to spot problems affecting players more quickly.

We look forward to seeing everyone there!
