Part 1: Create your Discord account and edit your profile

There are three ways to use Discord: install the mobile app, use the browser version, or install the desktop version. In this guide, we will detail the steps of installing the desktop version because it is the one offering the best experience.

Go to your browser and search for “Discord”, click this link:

Once on the site, you can choose to download Discord or use the browser version. Click “Download for Windows/MAC” to start the download.

Click on the DiscordSetup.exe file, after a few seconds/minutes, the following window should appear.

You will have to click on “Register/Save”.

Now enter your email, a username, which will be visible to everyone, a strong enough password and enter your date of birth. If you get an error message saying that your password is too weak, try lengthening it, adding numbers, special characters and/or capital letters.

Once your account is created, you will arrive at Discord. The orange banner indicates that you must verify your email address. To complete this, click on the link in the email you automatically received from Discord. If you don’t find it, look in your spam or click on “Resend”.

You can quickly customize your profile by clicking on the gear at the bottom left of your screen.

You will arrive at this window, then click on “User Profile”.

Here you can change your profile picture, change your banner color and write a description, which are visible to everyone.

To return to the home page, click on the cross at the top right or press the “escape” key.

Part 2: Join MetaFight Server

To go to on our server, click on the + at the top left.

Then on “Join a server”

Type “metafight” in the input bar, then click on “Join Server”.

You will arrive at this window, and you will receive a message from our robot, which contains some important information.

Click on the blue tick to unlock access to the server. It is a security that prevents malicious robots from entering the server.

Part 3: Important sécurity configuration

As in the screenshot, you should get a message asking you to enable two-factor authentication. It’s not essential, but it‘s much better to protect your Discord account. It is also necessary to be able to become a moderator on many servers. Click on “Resolve”.

Now click on “Enable two-factor authentication” and then enter your password.

Once on the page below, you can set up two-factor authentication with an application like 2FAS AUTH or Google Authenticator.

Finally, you can also activate double authentication using your smartphone. Remember to download your backup codes and print them, but do not store them on your computer. You can then exit the settings.

We urge our members to turn off their private messages, and for a good reason: most scams sent on Discord are sent via private message. They often take the form of a message indicating that a private sale is taking place, or is impersonating a robot. To turn them off, click the checkmark in the top left.

Then, on “Privacy Settings”.

Uncheck the box and click “Done”.
