IMS TeamSpeak Replaced by IMS Discord
This announcement is just to notify everyone and keep everyone on the same page.
The IMS TeamSpeak server (voice.imsclan.com) has been officially shutdown. While TeamSpeak 3 was an excellent gaming communication platform in the past, every single feature has been rivaled and matched in a better way on Discord. Due to this, IMS will be shutting down its TeamSpeak server, removing any requirements of activity on said TeamSpeak server, and shifting all TeamSpeak related operations to the IMS Discord.
This change should not come as a surprise nor should it disrupt any operations. As many may know, we had already shifted any official operations from TeamSpeak and slowly removed requirements and activities from TeamSpeak over the past months. This change should cause no issues nor spark any difficult transitions.
All staff meetings will now take place, as they have been, on our Discord server in the correct voice and text channels.
Any events will take place in their corresponding Discord voice and text channels.
Divisional management, divisional leadership, and community management offices will not be replicated in the Discord unless we find a need for them. Please directly reach out to a staff member by @mentioning them or by private messaging them.
Voice channels like these may be added back if Discord adds a subcategory system for voice channels, until then it is too unreasonable and unorganized to have that many channels.

TeamSpeak has announced a TeamSpeak 5 version which may have unique features that, if our community is interested, we will look into it. However, this version is currently still in development and we have no idea when TeamSpeak will be releasing this to the public. We will not have any sort of official TeamSpeak 5 server unless the community wants it and it's released publicly as a stable version.
