Tutorial: Just Check the Discord. No, Not That Discord, the Other One

With the release of Granblue Fantasy Versus, many players are getting into fighting games for the first time ever. But often for new players, the genre can seem to be a bit daunting or overwhelming. Luckily it’s easier than ever to learn how to play. All you need to get started is to simply just join the Discord. No, not that Discord, the other one.

There’s no denying that the Granblue Fantasy Versus Discord(the real one, not the bad one) is your one-stop shop to all the resources you’ll ever need. Whether it’s detailed combo listings, links to the right Google docs, or pictures of the block button, it’s all there, seamlessly intertwined into random conversations and conveniently spread across 40 or so different channels.

Not only is the Discord full of valuable information, it’s also a great place to ask questions, unlike the other similar servers that are just full of trolls and horny weirdos. The good Discord has plenty of active players who will answer your questions with helpful responses like, “just check the pins. No, not those, the other pins.”

I cannot reiterate this enough. If you want to learn Granblue Versus, everything you need is right there in the Discord. If it seems like something is inaccurate or missing, then that just means you’re in the wrong official Discord. If that happens, just move over to the actual one.

Trust me, with this advice you’ll have the fundamentals down in no time. Then it’ll be time to check out the character Discords. Hypothetically, let’s say you wanted to main Gran for some inexplicable reason. All you have to do is look for the good server with “Gran” and “GBVS” in the name and then join. Just watch out for the bad Discord that has a nearly identical name, as there’s a lot of misinformation in there.

That’s really all there is to it. If you just join the Discord, and avoid the other Discord at all costs, all your questions will be answered in no time. So what are you waiting for? Join the Discord today. Maybe someday you could even win a major and go down in Granblue Versus history. Then, if you’re really lucky, you might even get an invitation to the secret Discord server.
