Coalition Communication Resources

There are several resources available for communication within our coalition, from our VoIP services like Mumble and Teamspeak to organization programs like Slack and Discord. Here's instructions on how to install each of them, along with how to join our coalition servers.

Essential services are shown with a blue border and header.

If you are just joining Brave, please consult the What Do You Actually Need? section of this page.

Before you get overwhelmed, no you don't have to join every service listed here. This section will detail what is required to get the most out of Brave:

Every Member of the Brave Collective Should Be In the Following

  • The Brave Mumble Server [ Link ]
  • The Brave Collective Slack Workspace [ Link ]
  • The Coalition Voltron Discord [ Link ]
  • TEST's Auth and Mumble Server [ Link ]

The Following Are Recommended But Not Required

  • Requiem Eternal Auth/Comms [ Link ]

Everything not listed in the above sections are for convenience and in no way required to participate in Brave.

These are services that allow you to talk in real time with your coalition mates. Without them you won't be able to participate in fleets and will have an incredibly hard time responding to intel.

Required Service - Brave Comms

Mumble

Mumble is a VoIP program for Windows, OS X, Linux, and iOS. Authentication for each server you join is saved by the server rather than your own computer. This allows you to easily join and authenticate multiple servers without needing someone to manually give you permissions to do what you need to do.

You can download the latest Mumble release here.

Getting the Development Snapshot rather than the latest stable release is highly recommended. This gives you access to a working In-Game Overlay for Eve Online, a heavily upgraded Graphical Interface, along with per-person sound settings.

Once you have Mumble downloaded and installed, you can join different coalition servers via the instructions below:

Brave Comms

These are the main comms for Brave Collective, and are also used to host most coalition fleets. You should always be logged into this when you're in-game, if nothing else to be able to hear intel and respond accordingly. You ARE NOT REQUIRED to have a microphone or talk while on comms.

Before setting up Comms, please ensure you have a Brave Core Services Account, with at least one group listed on the right side of your core page.

To join Brave Comms, follow this link and authenticate your details using Brave Core

Once you've authenticated, you have the option to click the link on the left of the screen to automatically open Mumble and join the server, or use the details on the right to manually connect to the server. Once you're logged in please take a moment to configure a whisper key. You may also wish to disable text to speak notifications as well.

Required Service - TEST Auth and Comms

TEST Auth and Comms

TEST's Forum often plays host to coalition updates, and many of their other services can be valuable when supplementing our own. Their comms are sometimes used for coalition fleets, and more often capital OPs. You will need to join TEST's authentication system access these services, and here's how you can do that.

1. Head over to TEST's Auth Site

2. Create an account and verify your email.

3. Once you're logged in, set a services password that's NOT the same as the one you used for your account.

4. Now, on the EVE API Keys Tab and click the LEGACY ALLIES button and sign in for any Brave Character. This is a reduced ESI request that only requires the most basic information.

5. Now on that same tab Click Add Service.

6. Select your character name and Mumble(Thorrak) from the first two dropdown boxes, and create a password in the final box.

7. Now make a note of your username and password on the page that pops up, and click the Serivce URL link. When asked for a username and Password, use those you just made a note of.

Once you've finished setting up TEST Auth, you can find some of their other IT Services here.

Requiem Eternal Comms

Requiem Eternal now has an Auth system which can be used to access their Mumble Server. Here are the instructions on how to do that.

1. Head over to REQ's Auth Site

2. Click auth.

3. Click register, and create a new account.

4. Once on the dashboard, click Add API Key, create a new blue key via the link for a Brave Character (This only gives access to your most basic Public Character Info), authenticate to confirm, and select your main character (the name of which will show up when you're on Mumble).

5. Select the Services tab on the sidebar, and click the orange checkbox next to the Mumble service.

6. Make sure to copy the randomly generated password on the screen that pops up, and click Continue.

7. Now click the green arrow to open Mumble, and paste the copied password when prompted.

Evictus Comms

Now that Evictus has been added to the Voltron Discord, having access to their comms can allow for fast response times and the ability to participate in their fleets.

1. Log into Evictus's Auth Site with the ESI Link, and enter an email address for verification.

2. After verifying your email, log back into the link above to enter the dashboard.

3. On the left sidebar, click on Services, then click the yellow checkmark next to the Mumble Service. Make sure to copy the randomly generated password before clicking Continue.

4. Now click the green arrow to open Mumble, and paste the copied password when prompted.

Tactical Supremacy Comms

1. Log into Tactical Supremacy's Auth Site with the ESI Link, and enter an email address for verification.

2. After verifying your email, log back into the link above to enter the dashboard.

3. On the left sidebar, click on Services, then click the yellow checkmark next to the Mumble Service. Make sure to copy the randomly generated password before clicking Continue.

4. Now click the green arrow to open Mumble, and paste the copied password when prompted.

Joining Multiple Mumble Servers at Once

If you often find yourself switching around comms for different fleets, you may find it handy to be able to join multiple mumble servers at once. Here's how you go about setting that up:

  1. Find the shortcut you use to activate Mumble.
  2. Right click and open the properties panel.
  3. Find the "Target" field on the "Shortcut" tab, and add -m to the end of it.
  4. To launch a second window, right click on your shortcut and click Mumble again.

Keep in mind that when you use a whisper/shout key you will be talking to BOTH servers at the same time. If you want to talk you will need to manually set (click, not shortcut) yourself as muted on the server you don't want to talk to.

Teamspeak

Teamspeak is a VoIP Program for Windows, OS X, Linux, iOS, and Android. Unlike Mumble, authentication is saved by the client rather than the server. This means that for each device you download the program on, you are given a new and unique 'User Identity', and to join a server with the same permissions on different devices, you need to export your User Identity and import it to each new device.

You can download the latest Teamspeak release here.

Once you have Teamspeak downloaded and installed, you can join different coalition servers via the instructions below:

Drone Walkers Teamspeak

At this time the Drone Walkers Teamspeak is inaccessible to Legacy Members. Check back later for updates.

Warped Intentions Teamspeak

Warped Intentions uses a simplified Auth process to make connecting their teamspeak server fast and easy.

1. Log into the Warped Intentions Auth Site with the ESI Link. Make sure to copy the username shown.

2. In Teamspeak, connect to ts3.warpedintentions.com with the exact username shown on the auth site.

3. Back on the Auth Page you just logged into, click Update TS Permissions to get the correct roles. If you exited out of this page, just repeat Step 1 to get back to it.

These programs are chat based, and allow you to chat with friends, receive and relay intel, and receive pings.

Required Service - Brave Slack

Slack

Slack is program that was originally meant to help organize businesses and development teams. Groups from several games have begun to utilize it though as it offers a superb API, and makes it easy to send notifications to team members when needed.

You can find the latest release of Slack here. It should automatically detect your operating system.

Brave Slack

Like our Mumble server, Brave's Slack is essential to participating in alliance and coalition activities. This is the only place to receive pings about upcoming fleets, and a great place to chat with your alliance mates and organize future fleets.

This service requires an email to setup, and this email will be visible to all Slack members; your use of an email address indicates that you consent to having it shown publicly. (If you don't want to dox yourself, create a new free email address using a service such as Gmail.)

Here is the link to authenticate our Slack Service.

Shortly after signing up, you will receive a direct message from the 'Slackbot' asking you to confirm your identity. It is important that you do this, or your account will be disabled shortly afterwards.

Required Service - Voltron Discord

Discord

Discord is similar to Slack but also offers voice and video chats that work with small groups. Its roles and private channels system is also inferior to Slack's. Unfortunately though its also easier to initially setup than Slack is, so here we are.

You can download the latest version of Discord here.

Coalition Voltron Discord

Everyone in Brave should be in this Discord! All coalition formup pings are sent from here. It is also the only place to receive general pings and reliable intel about hostiles in Impass, and has many dedicated people doing regular sweeps of our space for wormholes.

You can use this link to authenticate for the Voltron Discord Channel.

Don't like reading and just want the links? Well here you are!
