I have mixed reserves over this. Discord is a mess and always has been. It's not exactly reliable. Many years ago when Teamspeak was widely used and Discord started gaining allot of popularity, it didn't run very well. Some people had good results with it, and others had horrible results where it would crash PC's and slow them down, or just cause all kinds of weird issues. Unfortunately more and more people begin using it where eventually if your involved into gaming, you basically had to switch. Yes, Discord offers many nice features. But on the same token it is resource intensive. Being resource intensive should have been a major concern for gamers, but I guess people were blinded by the pretty bells and whistles. I use to run a gaming server. So running Discord pretty much became a necessity. Thankfully by this time many bugs were ironed out, but it was still a resource hog and had many bugs still with it. So I used it for a number of years. However beginning last year when they did a major update and changed their audio system, I lost the ability to use voice with it. My hardware seems fine, but for some reason Discord does not work for me no more. And to this day, I still cannot get it working. I'm not the only one with this problem, but others reported the same issue. Yet Discord has not addressed it. Why? So yea, I don't know how I feel about Microsoft acquiring it. But as of now, its of little use to me.

Shouldn't buy the scalper cards. Best way to combat them is to wait until the manufacturers can make more and make them readily available so that they can't make anymore than RRP

Hopefully, it goes only for the better for Discord being how it can be supported financially better now. Really it's better MS than many other I could think of that would be worse.

To Microsoft, the data provided from monitoring all of that communication must be insanely profitable. The people at Discord right now have a soul. When Microsoft takes over, Discord will become yet another spyware app for those building AI's to help them sell people more crap they don't need and give up their time and energy on useless garbage. Not to mention finding ways to convince the public that the truth is just another kooky conspiracy theory.

People don't want anyone supporting scalpers, because that exacerbates the problem. If no one bought scalped cards there wouldn't be a market for the absurd markup, so that's why I and many other wouldn't want you spending your money on them. I appreciate your intent and wanting to help people, but it's the principle and I don't want even a cent more in the pockets of scalpers.

We use slack for internal communication and teams for scheduling calls with others. For short term stuff I can see the interest in teams, but ugh, I would not get that setup for long term things. The ui isn't good enough and not having any alerts when people join is super troublesome. I doubt that Discord would survive Microsoft's purchase as well :D RIP MSN... +like for the verified gamer cards.

I'm mad late to this, but as for easy to use alternatives to Discord, there's Steam Groups. They are WAY more robust ever since the Chat overhaul a couple years back and Discord offers very very few features that Steam groups doesn't. And since most PC gamers are already using Steam, even as just a launcher, if not actually playing a Steam title (I use it to launch everything becauase the controller support is unbeatable) it's SUPER easy to shoot someone a link and have them join your chat group (not to mention the event calendar, discussion boards, and announcements that being a full group member offers) I've been running 3 groups ever since the chat overhaul and would recommend it over Discord any day. (Discord also used to be terrible about protecting credentials and why they started pushing 2FA so hard) And afaik, Valve's fairly transparent about what they do with your data since they are constantly under the scrutiny of so many government agencies.

There's a lot to criticise with Intel, but I think going from 4 cores to 10 cores and keeping TDP and temperatures manageable on only refreshes of a given architecture and with only "tweaks" to the manufacturing process is really impressive. Of course it was never going to be enough to maintain the lead with AMD, especially after they were able to ditch GlobalFoundries, but the fact that they are still so close is something.

I like the sentiment of using the profit to give more people cards, since supply is the issue maybe use those profits for giveaways of gear that isn't in such hot demand but would be things we poorer gamers may not splurge on. Keep up the good work. :) (Edit: or maybe a nice bonus for the hard workin' folks who staffed the program.)

MS aren't necessarily buying Discord to mess with it much, they may well keep Discord as it is. They are as likely buying it to leverage the tech for their Teams and/or Xbox services. They could also very well be buying it to keep it away from Sony/Apple/Google. At least I hope so.

I’m late because I’m in the middle of a move, but I’m so excited to see the verified gamer news! I literally have my PC hardware sitting in their box until I can finally find a GPU. I’m a little sad about the in person event since I’m in the US so I wouldn’t qualify :(
Kyle 18 dager siden
I think the point of the majority of people (me included) about not getting the gpu's from the scalpers is that at least I don't want to see hard earned money go into scalpers hands when the cards sell for cheaper at msrp because it is people that want to make a quick buck on something that could be prevented if people wasn't so arrogant and money grabbing, but also it doesn't matter how much money you as a company make, you have built it from the ground up and what's the point in spending money over the price of what the actual price should be sold at. sorry it late to comment but I am catching up on what I have missed and this just got to me that you really care about the gaming community.

Buying cards and selling them at MSRP creates an inelastic price tolerance that allows scalper prices to go up (if you do this at any significant scale).

40:16 Honestly, thank you for doing this. Ever since my gpu died on December (gtx 1080, 4 years using it) its been hell trying to get a gpu at a good price. It’s been almost 4 months and it’s so draining to look for a card. I know that there are many people who ended up in a even worst situation than me and this will at least give us a chance to get something at the price it was intended. Thank you for doing something, even if the situation is out of everybody’s control, thank you for at least trying and making chances for real gamers. I really hope I can get a 3080 from evga, really looking forward to the drop.

Linus buying some hardware from scalpers isn't going to affect anything, he isn't going to buy enough to affect anything. However, I do think a prominent county member buying them from scalpers like that sends a bad message. It would be easy to interpret that as saying scalping fine, so long as you have money.

How will you verify actual gamers after the in-person event, and how will you not lose financially (even eventually with some sort of indirect gain-back) by donating the partial cost from the scalping to gamers by selling the cards at that lower cost?
BigHairyFenian 20 dager siden
Point about solo in Tarkov, it can actually be easier to learn the game than teaming, in squads you're always second guessing yourself, always wondering if those footsteps are a friend or foe, always the "is that you?" moment. In solo you're free of all that, everyone is a target and you don't have the false sense of security of having other people around you, you will play more cautious, people develop bad habits when they only team. I recommend learning exits and scav spawns in offline and just jumping in yourself, teaming is usually bad for new players because they become dependent.
