Fearless Assassins actively searches for ways to keep the community strong and stable for years to come. Communication and interaction between community members is a major factor into maintaining a healthy community. Originally we used Ventrilo, XFire, TeamSpeak and then Evolve. As time progressed, we were adamant about keeping up with modern software, this lead us to use the more sophisticated VoIP application that essentially combines all previous programs into one, known as, Discord. Thanks to the members of our community and a dedicated moderating team, we have created a friendly and open Discord server for anyone who wants to join.

We have members from all around the world playing a large variety of games so there’s always someone to have a conversation with or even invite to join you using our ‘Want to play’ channel. Below you’ll find a guide for getting things set up, an outline of what you can find on our server as well as our rules and member roles. To ensure you download Discord correctly, join our channel with ease and to make your life easier, read this tutorial. Discord is also available for free on mobile devices for iOS and Android platforms.

When you join the server you’ll be given the 'New' role. This role prevents you from performing certain actions, for example, posting images. This is to prevent spammers, trolls and advertisers from filling our server with unwanted content. To have this role removed, make sure you add your Discord username to your forum profile. This can be done easily by going to your profile, clicking Edit Profile and then adding your Discord name and number under the 'Contact Methods' section. It should look something like this: 'Username#0000'. When you've done this you can ask a member of staff or one of our Discord moderators to remove the role.

Features

Contacting Our Admins

On our Discord server, you will find that many of our beloved admins are active and available. Need help? Have a question? We are always available to help. There are numerous ways to grab our attention:

  • Mentions: Using the mention feature on an individual or a group of individuals will send them a notification. Type @username or @role to grab the attention of said person or group.

For example: @CheepHeep will send a notification to CheepHeep and @member will send a notification to all users with the "member" role. Spamming the mention feature for invalid reasons may result in a temporary mute.

To view your recent 'mentions', click the @ symbol located at the top right corner of the application.

  • Private Messages: You can also send a private message to any of our admins if you require something or simply just want to chat. Just click on their name and start typing!
  • The !cheater command: Certain commands are set to alert relevant admins to an unwanted situation that may be occurring on our servers. Should you suspect someone of cheating, whilst grabbing a demo of the suspected player, you can type !cheater in our discord channel if you require assistance. Be advised that the name of the server should be added when using the !cheater command to allow admins to get to the right place as quickly as possible and without confusion.

♫♫♫ Music Bot ♫♫♫

Fearless Assassins has a channel dedicated to listening and sharing your music. This channel is accompanied by a bot, a music bot, that plays the music you select. To use the music bot, join the 'MUSIC musicbot' voice channel. Go to the #botcmds-and-music text channel and type !!!help to view the list of available commands for the MusicBot.

Note: When using MusicBot commands, use the prefix: !!! (3x exclamation marks)

If you require any further help using the music bot, feel free to contact an admin or Discord moderator for assistance. They will be with you promptly.

Rankings

Mee6 is another bot that we utilise on our Discord channel. One of its many features includes a ranking system based entirely on how much someone chats via text or as many would call it, SPAM. Each time you post a message you get a random number of XP between 15 and 25. To avoid flood, you can only gain XP once per minute.

While on the server, you can type !rank in one of the text channels to get your current rank and level.

There are many other features to explore on Discord, with updates constantly pouring in, there's always something new to discover.
