While the game does have built in chat and while it is quite good for a medium like Kongregate, it has a lot of limitations. The biggest of these is the separation between Steam, Kongregate, and whatever other platforms Card Hunter might be on. I also believe each region of the world has a separate server (and subsequently, chat) as well, further dividing the community. A Discord server can supplement the forum as another way for people to communicate. Whether your goal is to discuss tactics or strategies, ask for help, or even just to make new friends, a Discord chat is a perfect place for that. https://discord.gg/D5BzUPb Clicking the link opens a new tab in your browser window. No downloads and no resource hogging (unlike skype on both accounts). It's comparable to IRC, but logs are stored automatically (don't worry, they aren't loaded all at once), you don't have to rejoin, and frankly the interface is just much neater and clean. Also, like IRC, it is very fast. Also, if you're like me and vastly prefer dark backgrounds, Discord has a nice black background that's really easy on the eyes. If you prefer black over white or vice versa, you can click on the gear symbol at the bottom way underneath the channel list, go to appearance, and click on which color you want.
