Community-Wide Skype Chat

by DarkForce » 23 Nov 2014, 06:30

Good Evening / Morning / Afternoon / Whenever You Read This:

For those of you that don't know, I'm DarkForce, Lore Master and Community Manager.

Today I'm happy to announce the opening of our player-centric Skype Channel! It's a place for players from every faction (or unaligned) to get together and shoot the breeze, talk about the game and pose questions to the dev team (through me)!

Just copy this link right into your Skype and join up!

FW: ToW Open Channel

Come on people now
Smile on your brother
Everybody get together
Try to love one another
Right now
Blame DarkForce, he wasn't clear about it.

Skype is free and ad supported. There is absolutely no monetary requirement.

If you provide your Skype profile name anyone already on the channel can add you immediately.

It immediately prompted me to buy "Skype Credits".

And that was after fighting with it to install and it not liking my sound card.

Skype credits are only for use with their voice chat function, which would allow you to call domestic or foreign phone numbers through Skype. It's just an ad you can ignore.

We only use Skype for its group chat functionality, to help coordinate in-game events, forum RP, chat with the devs and one another, etc.

I highly recommend it as most of the active community is on board. If there is any way we can help you get it installed and set up, please let us know.

Technically you could disable all of Skype's sounds and ignore your sound card's issues, as we only use the text chat functions, not voice.

Just paste the link into your browser. It should open Skype / Freeworlds channel for you.

I've set it up, and I"m signed in.

pasting the above link into my browser only shows me a google listing for this page. doing a skype search for it gets me nothing.

It has me listed as : Chris Clouser

because I signed in with my facebook.

<Answered in Skype, Thank you!> RESOLVED

Hi. I just add the channel on Skype.

Can the game be played when no one else is online, solo?

Thanks

Who is online
