Soldats Official Discord Server was created by @manofoneway circa early October 2016, joined shortly @nosejj in the early efforts. Within less than a year dozens of users have turned into hundreds.
As most of you may have noticed, the majority of the IRC community has now migrated to this server. The Soldat Gather Services has moved too, and hopefully this month Soldatladder will join as well.
A big thanks should be mentioned for our Gather bot programmer, @XvayS. Hard at work, providing excellent quality and maintaining it non-stop. Couldn't have done this without you.

The goal of the Discord server is to create an active, vibrant and refreshing Soldat community. As well as provide quality services such as gather and servers rental.
Soldat's Discord aspires to create a communal hub, in which Soldat players of all sorts can be gathered to play, discuss and enjoy content related to Soldat.

Discord Introduction
One can use Discord on many platforms (Win/Mac/Linux/Android/iOS & Web-browser). We highly recommend using the Desktop application for best user experience.

Joining our server can be done through the following invite Link. You can also share this exact link if you want to invite your friends.
If you're experiencing difficulties using Discord and need further assistance you can Discord's Help Center, or contact one of our admins.

Why did we migrate?
- The opportunity to form one big community instead of many sub communities
- Putting Soldat up to speed with the rest of the gaming world
- Integration between text, voice & media - all in one app
- It's entirely free and still allows many crucial functions like logging
- Less configuration is required than in IRC
- Will probably attract more new players than IRC
* Further list of features

We are welcome new communities to come and enjoy our server in hope that their players base will increase and perhaps will make veterans even return to the battle field.
We currently have a few channels dedicated to sub-modes of Soldat: Realistic, Knife Only, Hide 'N' Seek, Climb, (Tactical) Trench Wars & OneShots. We hope to see all of them growing in the future!
Soldat Gather
The majority of old-school players know Soldat Gather. As mentioned, Discord is the new home for it. The gathers are taking place at it's own channel: #gather.

Soldat Gather is a community on Discord, on which competitive matches are being organized. These matches are called gathers. Gathers are similar to what you might know from games such as CS:GO as 'matchmaking'.
The preferably played gamemode on our gather is 'Capture the Flag' but we do also provide the option to play all other major gamemodes. Six players are needed to start a default gather queue, as the match is played 3on3 in CTF.

Playing gathers actively, will rapidly turn you into a stronger player and you will have the chance to meet the best Soldat players and become a part of the competitive Soldat community.

Discord Server Rules
0.  Use common sense.
1.  Respect everyone and don't be hateful. Keep in mind you're communicating with humans here.
2.  Racism will not be tolerated. That goes for any of our channels and services.
3.  Do not engage in confrontations. If you're getting flamed, simply contact the admin team and let them handle it.
4.  Controversial topics such as politics are outside of the scope of #gather and gather matches.
5.  Keep it family friendly. This means no NSFW (not safe for work) content.
6.  Don't spam. Avoid highlighting users excessively for no reason.
7.  Use respective channels. Please communicate in the appropriate channels in order to keep the server nice and tidy.
8.  No illegal or harmful content. This includes warez and malicious links.

New punishments policy

From now on, offenses will be treated on a case-by-case basis, meaning that different types and severities of offenses will draw a different punishment. The punishment's description and length will be kept at admins' discretion.

Short-term bans reset
Beginning 1st April 2018, all bans that have expired prior to this date will be removed from a player's record. Each player will start with a new tally until the next scheduled bans reset. This does not apply to permanent bans set by admins.

Users who choose to ignore !english rule
Messages in a language other than English may be deleted and the person may also be muted for repeated abuse.

Misc Updates

? ctf_Mine by Puure was added for the KnifeOnly Gathers.

? Discord has a public server @ soldat://

? Added !macos and !linux commands for a guide on how to run soldat for these OS.

Latest Gather Statistics

Channels to follow development process opened
#development_team & #creative_team are new channels where the community can follow the development and creative development processes of Soldat, show interest and ask questions. Please make sure to stay civil, patient and not spam (#rules).

Levels addition and general levels adjustment
We added Level 5 and increased the minimum level requirement for Gather+ to Level 4. This was done in order to create a wider range of levels for unvoiced players (0 up to 3). Gather+ Players were simply bumped from 3 to 4, and from 4 to 5.

Within the process all of the gather players' level roles were reviewed again by the Trial Jury and adjusted accordingly.

Punishments policy updated
The ban lengths for Gather-related offenses have been reduced by half. Bans are still cumulative and will increase in length with each offense.

If you have any specific questions or suggestions on how to improve our ban system, please contact a Gather Admin. Thanks.

Admin recruit
shredder joined the gather administration team.

Automated punishments notifications
All users issued a punishment will now be notified by direct message via an automated system (@SoldatBans).
An explanation of the punishment and ban-time will be provided.
Please make sure that you are able to receive direct messages from this server in order to be notified.

GatherBot balance algorithm improvement
Bot has been updated to provide you with a more consistently balanced captains gather experience. Thanks to XvayS.

Addition of two European servers
Added 2 EU Servers hosted in Frankfurt, DE (#11 & #12) - Feedback needed on their performance. Again, thanks to XvayS.

Rules translation added
Italian translation was added thanks to diobrando89 who just straight up pm'ed me a translation. :)

Added commands
- !WM to see a comparison table between 1.7.1WM to 1.7.2WM Beta used in Gather.
- !mapviewer will show you urraka's online map-viewer tool.
- !guide was updated to link to the latest merged version of the comprehensive ctf tutorial (by Tanaka and nosejj).
