As you all know we currently use a public IRC server for server communications without actually having to be ingame. However, now we will be using a much better system called Slack. Now you might be thinking why switch to something new, IRC works perfectly fine? Well IRC may work fine, but Slack is much better and has much more to offer. Importantly it's our very own slack "server" which allows us full control and tweaking, we're not limited by some IRC operators rules and guidelines. Slack also keeps all of our communication in one place, makes it instantly searchable with no logging bots or bouncers needed, and is available wherever you go whether that be your iPhone, Android, Windows PC, Linux, or Mac. Slack is the ultimate chat service for the modern day and I hope everyone will love it. On a smaller note we have a new forum style in progress to go along with the upcoming SSC changes, you can view it under the style chooser as Apex.
