    Time to hit up that sponsorship licence, which covers content creators

    Dang, how do you play GW2 with that? I couldn't bother anymore with my i7-2600 and GTX560 and upgrade a few years ago, because the CPU was bottlenecking so hard on GW2. I mean even on min settings that must be more like a slide show, isn't it?

    Same argument for any other service. Client is nearly all the time free, for every platform.
    Oh wait, not with TeamSpeak and Mobile.

    If anyone has a computer to setup as a server you simply install the server file of TS3 and then to connect to your server with a client on another machine.
    That way you lose the "superb" audio quality that a lot of people give TeamSpeak credit for in this Thread. Because a home connections tend to give you a few % packet lose. Especially for the periods where the user downloads something. Funfact, Discord and TS3 use the exact same audio codec. Infact, TS3 uses Opus 1.1 and Discord 1.2 since January 2018.
    But TeamSpeak is still evaluating Opus 1.2 + 1.3. Might ship with next major release. Soon™
    https://forum.teamspeak.com/threads/134831-opus-1-2

    Teamspeak offers 32 slots for free or you can get an NPL to have 512 people across up to 10 servers. 512 people is plenty for anyone and its free just fill out the NPL form.
    Wrong, the 10 server limit was changed to 2 in 2014. Since 2014 the limit are 2 servers.

    Since July 2018 the NPL model was discontinued and later (in October 2018 or so) replaced with the new Sponsorship license, which was unobtainable until it kinda vanished from the page. Now there are only 3 licenses obtainable. One is the free one that every installation comes with. https://www.teamspeak.com/en/features/licensing

    But please, enlighten me how I can get 512 slots (or more than 32) for free like you claim nowadays.

    So yes Teamspeak is completely free to setup and use yourself it only cost money if your having it hosted and you are not paying for Teamspeak your paying the hosting and licensing fee since you yourself are not hosting it on your own rig/server.
    Well.. see above

    Also I would like to warn those Discord lovers that Discord is a centralized server meaning if it gets hacked or goes offline it brings down everyone's server. Teamspeak if it goes down its onlt one server meaning other servers are unaffected.
    Yes, yes this is absolutely true. And yes Discord went offline a few times. Last time it had major outages was on 4th May 2019 - 09:21PDT for exactly 52 minutes. But after 22 minutes partial services had recovered. If you want to know how I know that. Take a look here at the Discord status webpage.
    This single incident: https://status.discordapp.com/incidents/kz4ky0cydym1
    General overview: https://status.discordapp.com

    That's how you communicate problems.
    The last time the MyTeamSpeak Sync server went down we got annoying Windows popups every 15mins for a few hours or even days if I remember correctly.

    Privacy is huge with me and Discord doesn't have it as everything you said can be listened to without your knowledge whereas
    Only half valid argument. Because if it's not your TS3 server you are joining, then you need to trust the admin he isn't storing your data
    For example, Discord automatically hides your IP, to everyone. Even the Discord "Server" admins wont know them. This is not true for TS3. here you need to care for yourself if you want to expose your location/IP.

    Teamspeak is encrypted and everything is kept private.
    Discord also has encryption, by default because it uses TLS as protocol for text and xsalsa20 for voice or DTLS if you join the voice via Browser. This also means there is no way to disable encryption or forgetting to enable it like it is possible with TS3 for server admins.

    Granted I hate the wait for TS5 but even TS3 is superior to Discord, even if TS3 doesn't have all the eye candy.
    One calls it eye candy, others call it basic functions in 2k19.

    Of course centralized services have some downtimes, however overall the advantages compensate for the disadvantages.
    -> You can switch your server location in a second
    -> Your server can't be attacked (like with a DDoS)
    -> You as a user can't be attacked, as their IP is not leaked to literally everyone. Like really, the amount of ddos attacks I've seen thanks to this ip leak is immense.
    -> You don't need to pay and maintain an own server

    Psst, Discord does still not sell your damn data. Their business model is a different one and it would probably hurt them more than it gains them. Also you are probably using whatsapp, facebook, google, etc. everyday. Those companies are telling everyone open that they sell their data, so stop your hypocrisy.

    While it would be nice for the mobile client to be free, perhaps they need to charge for it to make it worth their while to develop?

    Don't get me wrong, if it was a monthly subscription fee I wouldn't bother with the mobile app, but for a one-off charge that's no more expensive then other apps on my phone it wasn't a big deal for me, but I see it being mentioned every now and then on the forum so maybe I'm in the minority.

    It's a shame there aren't polls on the forum as it would be interesting to see what the proportion of users are who use just the desktop client, or just mobile, or desktop client but they would be willing to use mobile if it were cheaper/free.
