    Well, it was bound to happen sooner or later: our LINE group just got bombed by a troll. To prevent this happening again, it might be worth considering using Discord instead. Here is a new server I just set up:

    https://discord.gg/mjWvtgC

    Feel free to join :)

    UPDATE:

    The server now has around 150 members, including most of the forum/LINE regulars. The coop channel is super active -- if you're frustrated that you can never find partners to play with then joining here will help :)

    Moreover we have our very own bot, called "Pandora's Bot", written by @Glis. Once you've registered with the bot, typing "!urgent" will cause the bot to send you a PM telling you what time your daily urgent dungeons are, customised to your group and your timezone!

    As Glis says, more features are on the way. The one I'm most looking forward to is where you type "!kaede" and the bot sends you a Kaede to your monster box. :troll:

    can the same happen to discord?
    Should I delete line and join this instead?

    Bombed...
    -.-

    My pride and joy got BOMBED!

    Dark days... at least I didn't see it :)

    (I have used line for many years).

    I'll think about getting discord but it was never an intention of mine honestly.

    No, Discord cannot be bombed. I guess that's a key advantage.

    No annoying stickers, too :p And channels (#general #coop... etc.) better organized, better all.

    I'm pretty annoyed myself.

    Me and former PAD friend, Paw decided to make a line group maybe 2 years ago. Pretty sure it turned into that one.

    I was removed from the group we made to have it later bombed.
    Seriously guys...

    Really sad. And I mean, REALLY sad.
    And I'm really not a fan of discord either, even KakaoTalk is better than that trash.

    Pros:
    -Discord cannot be bombed by strangers/trolls/etc.
    -Instant invite link to the server (Line has that too, but that makes it more prone to bombing)
    -The mention function: If you need to message someone without using private messaging, you can use @name and it will highlight the message and notify the other user.
    -Available on mobile, AND on pc(!) on browser and as program.
    -Sharing of gifs that play in the app. Sharing links shows previews. Sharing a video shows the video in the app as well.
    -Moderater/administrater functionality.
    -Shows when someone is typing.

    Cons:
    -Just another group that may or may not splinter the EU coop community/communities
    -Does not show how many people have read you message
    -No stickers (Sharing pitures is pretty easy though.)

    Lastly, I'd like to share this XKCD that came to mind with all the chat groups popping up:

    Another major pro: unlike LINE you do not need to give it a phone number. So you can run it just from your browser. (I know this put some people off joining LINE).

    I downloaded the App, but it seems to think I need "friends" :questions:

    @symplecto , I can't find anywhere to enter the server you linked.

    I thought I could just join a server and chat to all people on it?

    Big improvement on Line imho. Better features and easier to organise. Props @symplecto

    @Glis has been busy writing a bot for the discord server. It's still work in progress, but the bot will eventually notify you of urgent dungeons (this is as close as an EU Padguide as we'll ever get). I highly recommend you all join

    :D

    you can now let it send your urgent/dailies to you via direct pm, you can see all urgent group times, you can look up monsters (stats, leader and active skills, direct link to PDX, picture), look up users, which group and time zones they are, you can play ping pong with the bot and send whale pictures ;)

    did I miss something, @Glis @symplecto ?

    No, I think that's about it at the moment aside from the 100% accurate REM simulator.
    Future plans are for daily dungeon alerts, and a very outside chance of allowing players to register interest in dungeons for farming purposes. Other suggestions are welcomed, though.
