We've discussed this several times and I just take initiative to get a clearer picture:
Easy question for everyone. What do you prefer in terms of improvement for communication and coordination:

3rd party App - Discord:
5 - x x x x x

3rd party App - Line:
4 - x x x x

SWGOH - in-game chat:
2 - x x

9s Shoutbox:
3 - x x x

others:


Just reply in a post below - multiple answers are allowed.

merak says Discord is the better option and since I don’t know the first thing about chat apps, I’ll defer to him on this matter. If not, I’d say Line is good second option, since it seems to be pretty common.

The shoutbox is definitively not a valid alternative, might as well stick to ingame chat then. At least everyone knows ingame chat is there and you can use it while playing, only the core group of 9S veterans even know the shoutbox, all the random recruits we’ve managed to get have no idea it exists. I’m not sure we could get every random newbie to use it. Hell, we’ve been trying to encourage our current crop of newbies to use the forums and chat for some time now, and not a single one of them has done so so far, so again what’s the point of implementing a system that only the core group of 9S veterans will use? So the dozen or so of us can coordinate, while the rest of the guild just does whatever?
Again, most active guilds use a third party app, it shouldn't be too much of an imposition. I don't like it much myself (I didn't even use stuff like Messenger or Skype other than for work-related stuff), but the ingame chat has severe limitations when we have to make announcements, coordinate and things like that, which will be essential for successful heroic raid runs and, most likely, Territory Battles.

I agree with what deb says. I came from a well run guild almost haat ready. We used line. I did not like the requirement at first but it is a must for a successful guild to work. I vote line.

Discord or line I'm okay with either, and I wonder how many would prefer a second guild for the heroic rancor raids complete with the rules set from the beginning

I'm in for discord, it's solid.
I'm also in for this forum and the 9s shoutbox, because it's a base that has worked very well for Hellfire, so i don't see why it couldn't return for SWGOH. This forum and the shoutbox is what got me to meet you guys in the first place, so it has great appeal ;-)

I'm not in for in-game chat, because older messages disappear after a while. With the different time zones I often can't read what has been said during the night, so much info would go to waste.
