Teamspeak 3 Server

Did you click a link in Steam Chat that sent you here instead of to a Teamspeak server? Steam Chat likes to turn domain names into web addresses. It does this without telling the sender, which confuses the recipient (who thinks he should be clicking the web link) and the sender (who thinks the recipient is going out of his way to treat the domain name as a web link).

Steam has deliberately broken this part of their chat program and gone out of their way to hide the fact.

To get to the Olde Pharts teamspeak server, open your TS3 client, select Connections from the menu, click on Connect, and in the server address window paste this domain name:

Clan Page
