As some of you may have noticed, our Social Media panel to the right of your screen has just changed a little bit!
We've been thinking for a while now that we'd like to draw in more of the content that we're all creating on Social Media to the website, and so we've decided to replace our existing Twitter feed (which fed directly from our official Twitter account) with a feed from a list of all our members instead!

As you may be aware, Blizzard's upcoming shooter Overwatch entered open beta yesterday and is currently free to download & play - No beta key, previous sign-up or pre-order required.
In terms of content, the beta includes pretty much everything you'll be able to expect on launch day; including its full roster of heroes & maps. As such you'll be able to jump in there & get a feel for all the different heroes & their abilities before the game officially launches on May 24th.

Just a quick update to let you guys know that we now have a more convenient link to give to people when inviting them to our Discord channel.
If you're looking to invite someone into Discord, rather than generating an instant invite link for them (like https://discord.gg/0iscxurX8fkWaodg which is set to not expire), you can simply give them shatteredstar.org/discord. This will redirect them to the exact same place, just with a link that is much easier to remember and pass out to people!

Hey guys, if you haven't already seen on the forums or elsewhere, we now have our own Discord channel.
You may have heard of it already but if not; Discord is a free chat app designed specifically for gaming. It's very easy to use, doesn't require a guide to connect to or set up, supports both text & voice chat, multiple channels, embedding for videos, screenshots & links and you can connect to it quickly and easily via your browser, the desktop client (PC & Mac, with Linux to come) or even a free mobile app (for both iOS & Android) for use on the go too. It also supports a full chat log history, even for when you're not in there yourself. Joining the channel in the middle of a conversation? Just read up and see what was said before you logged in. Want to leave someone a message for when they next come online? Easy! Lots of other cool features to come as well.
