So you want to play CPMA? In this quick guide I will show you how to connect to the CPMA Community once you have the game all installed (or not).
The CPMA community primarily uses Discord,a free text and voice platform for Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS, and android, to organize, socialize, and compete between each other. Using Discord you can join servers (virtual spaces where people congregate), and do all this fun. To join our Discord server go over to www.discordapp.com and register your account, then you can either login via the webapp, or download the application. Although it is not necessary to download the app, I would highly recommend it as allows you to use push-to-talk when using voice-communication.
Joining the CPMA Discord
Once you have that time you need to join the CPMA Server. To do this:
- Click add server, it is a + symbol enclosed inside in a circle on the right hand side of the screen.
- You will now get a prompt to either CREATE or JOIN a server.
- Select JOIN.
- You will now get a prompt to enter a server address.
- Enter www.discord.me/CPMA. Now you're connected to the CPMA Discord Server.
- Enter www.discord.me/Promode-RU. Now you're connected to the CPMA Russian Discord Server.
- Enter www.discord.me/oafps. Now you're connected to the CPMA Oceania Discord Server.
