What are the forums and Discord?
The server forums as well as the official GotPvP discord are two ways aside from the main server in which the community as well as staff can interact.
  • Discord: Our discord server is run by a discord administrator and a separate team of discord staff. Similar to the main server, it too has an application system where players can apply. Unlike the forums, there are voice chats and it shares a similar function to "Team Speak" used on the previous enjin platform. Discord Link

    Note: Similar to "In game", discord has rules and it's own set of punishments. A good rule of thumb is, if it isn't allowed in game or on the forums chances are it's not allowed through our discord server!

  • Forums: The server forums has a variety of uses, Not just for reports and appeals. There are general discussions, server specific threads, profiles, etc... and many other uses. Additionally, most tutorials and staff information can be found here. Forums Link
Hopefully, this helps to clear up some of the confusion about the functionality and purposes behind these two extensions of GotPvP. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns please contact any online staff members or let us know here! Thanks!
