What is Guilded and why should you care? Guilded is a new and upcoming application & platform that functions similar to Discord but goes a step further. Guilded is built for gamers by gamers and the team at Guilded is doing a fantastic job bringing powerful features to the app on a regular basis. Discord is moving away from gaming & gaming oriented communities, this is where Guilded steps in. Guilded offers a wide range of improvements over Discord. These improvements and features are all FREE and don't require any special premium subscription or for you to be a Guilded Partner to receive. Let's take a look at some of these features:
- Server Art/Banners - Make your server stand out with it's own custom banner & artwork. This is a popular feature within Discord servers that require the server owner to be a Discord partner.

- Custom Server URLs - Another perk locked behind Discord partnership is 100% FREE with Guilded.

- Audio Improvements - Audio is one of the biggest things about Discord, or any application like it, good audio is important when you're trying to communicate with teammates during a match, Discord is notorious for having spotty audio & communications, This is where Guilded shines.

Is Guilded worth checking out? If you're a long-time user of Discord, you'll feel right at home with Guilded. They use a similar UI to Discord for that very reason, famiiliarity. They offer a slew of custom features as stated above that Discord does not have, that makes Guilded it's own product, it's own platform. It's stable, the audio sounds great, and it gets updates quite often with more features & stability improvements. The Desktop app works flawlessly from our experience in using it. The mobile app, is still a work in progress, but it's not terrible, at least not on an iPhone 8. Guilded brings competition to Discord, and competition is a good thing. When products & companies compete, the consumer/end-user always wins.

Overall Rating: 9/10 - Nearly perfect! the only thing keeping it from a perfect 10 is the lack of integrations with bots & 3rd party services at this present time. It's still in early development and will become perfect in time!
