I think Discord is one of the new chat variants that is spawning out there, so I'm sure they place a low priority on non-JS clients.
That said, a totally blank page is pretty dumb. You could at least have some descriptive text about the channel, and links to download native clients on android/ios/osx/linux/windows

Personally, I'm getting a bit sick of chat walled gardens. As all the ones I used to use have withered and fallen away, my centerim has become basically a proxy to google hangouts which still supports XMPP ... more or less.

But I haven't added new ones. Most of them don't have good interop. I'm on slack somewhat for a game and work since it supports IRC, and that's about it besides freenode.

So, the Discord server is as dead as the forum, but I got admin rights today and reorganized the server to... actually look like a proper server. If it was linked somewhere on the website that would be cool. New-coming players are more likely to check Discord than IRC. Unless we are accepting that the game is unpopular and stick to the FOSS community. Then ok, I guess.

It was a good idea to take over Discord server! Because no matter the openness of their source codes, it remains an appropriate chat software for game community. Actually, making it "open" would mean nothing, as master server is dedicated from us, so judgment about "openness" and privacy would still be in gray area.
The thing is, if Hedgewars had group in Mastodon, I'd happily join one, but this experience is in waste compared to instantly working chat client, because everyone without software or dev background can start chatting right away, without typing stinky IPs, bookmarking website and/or setting up notifications!
