The game isn't out yet, so Discord has the same alleged problem the forum does: lack of traffic. That will change after release, especially since they're forcing everyone to either go to Discord or just STFU. I'm not even going to talk about 140-characters-or-less Twatter or FB ("Oh, you want to know how to clear a bug or complete a quest? Fine, but have a look at my wall of cute kitty pictures first, all twenty pages of them . . ."). Discord isn't my first rodeo with chat rooms, and I've never found the useless noise in a "popular" chat to be anything but deafening. Remember how lively things could get here? Imagine trying to follow that in a chat.
