Farewell, Telegram! Hello, Discord!
Clicked right into that one didn’t you? Well, it’s true! Continue reading to find out more about this BIG news and join us as we migrate over to Discord on 10 March 2022!
We know, we know…it may seem like a drastic move, but believe us, one of the good reasons behind it is you — the community!
As most of you might be aware, League of Ancients’ Official Telegram has been the go-to place for LOAders, be it existing or new followers, to learn more about the game, get their questions answered, mingle with the community, and ultimately keep up to date with the latest developments of League of Ancients. Sounds good, right? Not really, while Telegram is a solid chat app — it’s far from perfect for the LOA community.
The Drawbacks of Telegram
Let’s admit it — Telegram is NOTORIOUSLY clogged with spam content and scams, ranging from Bitcoin ads to NSFW content spam. “How does this affect the League of Ancients community?” you may ask. Most of us are aware that Telegram scam cases have been on the rise, causing a matter of great concern for both senders and receivers. Apart from that, the ‘continuously scrolling’ and single-channel nature of Telegram is not ideal for people who are looking to find information or have in-depth discussions with our moderators without being interrupted by Combot commands being triggered consistently by newcomers to the channel. The solution? A platform that’s designed for more streamlined communication and interactivity — Discord, here we come!
A New Haven for LOAders
Discord, contrary to the literal meaning of its name, is one of the most popular communications platforms where people — especially players — can congregate, meet other players, socialise, and have meaningful discussions. It may seem like a contentious move, given that we have already built up a strong community of 126,985 members (at the time of writing) on Telegram before deciding to hop on the next train to Discord. Trust us, the PERKS that await all of you LOAders on Discord far overshadow what we currently have on Telegram. Read on to learn more about the exciting activities and perks that we have planned for you!
Perks, Perks, and MOAR Perks!
Game Night — Who doesn’t love games? If you’re not a gamer, you wouldn’t have read up to this point, amirite? Unavailable to Telegram, Discord allows us to host game nights with all of you fellow LOAders. The best part? Winners will receive exciting PRIZES such as the king-of-the-hill style titles and stickers that you can flex — for as long as you can hold on to them, of course! Let’s not forget that the fact that you’ll be able to earn channel points, tokens, and sometimes maybe even LOA capsules too! Ready to put your game face on?
1-on-1 Customer Service and Follow Up — We’re sure most of you are familiar with the relentless Combot spam that hinders seamless conversations on Telegram. Interruptions will become a thing of the past on Discord, because all of your issues will be personally attended to and addressed by our friendly moderators in a 1-on-1 session! Taking our customer service to the next level, there will also be easy-to-use ticketing bot for you to submit your queries and get in touch with our friendly moderators.
Level-up System with Rewards — As the saying goes, no good deed goes unrewarded. Become a good role model for the LOA community and earn not just recognition, but also rewards! The higher your level, the better the perks you’ll get to enjoy, such as priority in whitelist raffles. Many more perks will be announced soon, so stay tuned!
Updated Information Repository — As we get more and more new members joining the LOA family, no doubt that there will be a lot of questions and concerns regarding the game. This is why we have set up an easily accessible information repository where LOAders can find information and answers that are related to League of Ancients. Psst, less Combot spam too!
Looking Good So Far! When Do We Leave?
We will be migrating to Discord on the 10th of March 2022. Be sure to mark your calendar because there will be EARLY BIRD PERKS for all of you who migrate with us on that day!
Hold Up! What’s Gonna Happen to LOA’s Main Telegram?
Don’t worry, all hope is not lost! We will be amalgamating LOA’s main Telegram channel with the announcement channel so that LOAders who are still with us on Telegram can get the latest news and updates on the game! All in all, no LOAders get left behind!
Welcome home, LOAder.
Excited to migrate over to Discord? We sure are! With open arms, we welcome you to join the official Discord server of League of Ancients: discord.gg/loa
